DAY 7 – Saturday

My family went back to London early that morning and we didn’t get to see them. We wanted to experience the splendor of Versailles, but tried to skip the queues and go through someone. Unfortunately that was very expensive and the lady could only help us late that day, so we went to check it out by ourselves. Continue reading French Fridays – Up and down the Notre Dame

I woke up very excited. I was very fortunate to meet some family in Paris today. My mom, grandmother, aunt and cousin went on a tour through Europe and their time in Paris was overlapping mine.  Continue reading French Fridays – Familiar Faces

French Fridays – More museums

DAY 5 – Thursday

I had to go to as many museums as possible to get my money’s worth with the museum card.

I started to get more comfortable with the Metro system and changed a few trains to the Pompidou area. As I exited there were so many directions with things to see and decided to start with Picasso museum. I struggled a little bit to find the place (yes, with a map and compass! 🙂 ), but it was a beautiful walk there.

French Fridays – A quick trip in Montmarte

DAY 4 – Wednesday

Montmarte

Montmarte is a large hill in Paris, it is also the place where you can find the magnificent Sacre Couer.

Yesterday I went museum-hunting so, when my husband arrived we went to Montmarte. We talked about the movies Amélie and Moulin Rouge, as we went to see the Moulin Rouge as well. I enjoyed seeing the places in real life.

DAY 3 – Tuesday

I woke up during the night with a sore throat. I struggled to wake up and my day started a bit later than usual, but I decided to do some museum hunting.

Musée Rodin

I went to Musée Rodin. Although it is a small museum I was glad I took the time to visit it. The Thinker and Gates of Hell in the garden were magnificent.

French Fridays – Paris on foot

DAY 2 – Monday

Getting a Museum card

My husband left early for work, so that was my first day alone on the metro. Finding the station without any problem I took my seat and watched the other people. Most of them sat with a blank face, but there was a young couple talking excitedly.

My first stop was at the Arc de Triomphe for a museum card. Still a bit afraid of the metro I walked where I wanted to go.
