england & france: part four

Paris, France- the magical city. I had such a wonderful time here. I think I appreciate it more, now that I’m home. We stayed there a week, in two different apartments. The first, was actually the narrowest building in Paris. We went to about 500 museums full of priceless works of art. I got to see Mona Lisa, Monet, Renoir & many others. It was a little hard to take it all in after a while, so many masterpieces, and so little time to fully take them all in. Paris was everything that I thought it would be, but somehow, it wasn’t at all like how I thought it would be. It’s rather hard to explain it all, but I loved it anyways. :)

Next: {last post on our trip, I promise!} Back to England
