The Louvre! Former royal palace, and now museum in Paris. Home of many famous sculptures and paintings such as the Mona Lisa.
When my travel buddy suggested we go to the catacombs I was really excited! It is the biggest crypt in the world with the bones of over 6 million people!
Everything about the Notre Dame is stunning and left me speechless with a lump in my throat. When I walked in I was instantly humbled by the architecture and stained glass.
As soon as the Notre Dame came into view I was in awe. It was gothic, grand, and looms over everything around it. The closer you get the taller it reaches toward the sky, gargoyles protruding from it.
The Arc de Triomphe is triumphant indeed! And like most the monuments in Paris, a complete work of art.
Paying homage to Jim Morrison was at the top of the list of things to do in Paris for me. Obviously I had to visit his grave, and the internet made it pretty easy to find other places to check out.
It was an honor to visit Père Lachaise Cemetery. It’s huge! We definitely weren’t the only people who wandered around lost for a while, but I’m a big fan of exploring and seeing all that I can. And there’s so much to see! With the help of the maps posted throughout we were able to find Jim Morrison‘s and Oscar Wilde’s graves, and lots of others in between!
I took so many pictures of Paris that I couldn’t possibly fit them all in one post. So here’s some more!
After nearly six months of straight traveling I arrived at my last destination before home- Paris! I had my two buddies with me and we got an Airbnb (not in the best area, which is why they won’t trust me to pick the place next time!) and we made lots of cheese plates and drank lots of Champagne. Because Paris!!
We weren’t in Glasgow very long, and admittedly, we spent most the time that we were in pubs. We got off the train from Stirling, walked in the direction it seemed like we should go, and came upon a pub with a live band playing.
