Good Morning World!
So its our last day in Paris, and the last day of the most amazing holiday I have ever been on. The whole experience was perfect even down to the weather which is an odd thing for a Brit to say. Truly one to remember.
We’re actually heading off home today, and our train is at 16:00 local time, which meant that today we only have the morning. We decided earlier in the week that we would do the Louvre Museum on the last day as they have baggage lockers that store your stuff, as you aren’t allowed to bring anything with you into the museum. The lockers hold a standard cabin size case, so if you are planning on doing the same make sure it fits the measurements shown on their website (however mine was slightly bigger and it still fit).
We arrived at the Louvre Museum at around 11, slightly later than we planned on arriving but the late night from Disneyland yesterday really took a toll on us. This was still enough time for us to have a quick look around, but we got to see the Mona Lisa, so we’re not exactly complaining.
They say that it takes 9 months to fully get around the Louvre Museum, including reading every label on every floor. This to me is ridiculous and just shows how big the building actually is, because at first I thought the museum was just the pyramid, lol I was wrong. Everything in the building was so interesting and it was full of many different artefacts from many time periods, my favourite being the Egyptians. However, because of time issues we skimmed most of the museum and didn’t read any of the labels (mostly because they were in French). If we would’ve had more time I would’ve loved to have seen more of the museum and taken the time to examine each object. We still enjoyed our visit and even though it was short we were glad we got to see it.
After leaving the Louvre it was time to say goodbye to our temporary home, one in which I did not want to leave for at least another few days. On the train journey back I felt so down about my holiday being over but despite everything I had created so many great memories and travelled to one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world!
Thank you for having me Paris,
Love Georgina xx
