I’ve come to the conclusion that I have no desire whatsoever to learn to speak French. Italian on the other hand I wouldn’t mind learning. With the little amount of each language that I do know it got confusing to try to speak French when I got used to speaking Italian. And pretty much all I know is how to say hello and thank you.
Em and I on the top of the Arch De Triumph
We crammed a lot into the four days we were there for and we got pretty darn tired but we also got to do just about everything we wanted to. The only things we missed were going to the catacombs and going to the top of the Eiffel tower. I wouldn’t have minded going to the top of Notre Dame either. My favorite things were Notre Dame and the Musee D’Orsay. Notre Dame was just so fabulous, it’s so huge and powerful, I really liked it a lot more than the Duomo in Florence. We didn’t get to spend too much time there but I definitely could have. It’s an amazing building! The Musee d’Orsay houses so many pieces of modern era art that every time I went around a corner I was surprised and happy! They have a large collection of Van Gogh and Monet. My two favorites were Van Gogh’s which I haven’t loved for a while now. They also had a cool art Nouveau show as well as a special exhibition by an artist called Ensor. I really liked his work and was interested in learning about him. I learned after being frustrated at the Lourve to get one of those things you carry around with you that you can listen to to learn about the art. It was much more pleasant that way.
Sandeman's. We walked all over the place so it was a long day but we saw a lot! I loved hearing about the history of everything and how it came to be. We climbed to the top of the Arch De Triumph, saw the Eiffel tower, went to a cemetery where lots of famous people are buried including Jim Morrison. We saw Moulin Rouge and Sacre Couer and lots more! It was a tiring trip but it was great!
ETA Carissa this is the vegetarian place we ate at in Montmartre. You should make reservations if you plan to go. It's very small. I think there were a total of five tables. It was a cool experience.
