I don’t know why – I don’t recall reading it anywhere – but I just knew that stopping by the Louvre at sunset would be a beautiful sight. And fortunately, it didn’t disappoint! Given our short visit, we decided against visiting the Louvre as it’s so huge you could easily spend an entire day there. … Continue reading The Louvre at Sunset
Paris and shopping, I mean they do kinda go hand in hand. So off to the Champs-Élysées we went! There were so many shops — and a LINE just to get into Louis Vitton! Ridiculous.
