Paris, Paris, where do I even continue?
If you haven’t already been informed, I should tell you that my computer broke a short time into my month abroad. One cup of piping hot Parisian coffee was all it took to murder the poor innocent laptop. With that being said, my posts are spead out and my posts are short, simply because typing on an iPad is just as difficult as it sounds.
Last weekend, we took a trip to Amsterdam – the most beautiful place I have ever been. Below are just a few moments that I captured from the weekend. The trip was short and sadly there were not many times I stopped to take a photograph simply because it was so beautiful so I marveled at the sights and forgot to capture them.
July 14 was also Bastille Day, the French Independence Day. Our group enjoyed a lovely picnic in the Jardin Du Luxenbourg and that night was the fireworks near the beautiful Eiffel Tower.
As you can see, we have a lot of catching up to do. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Shakespeare and Company, Musée de Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and Montmartre all in a short time.
Shakespeare and Company is one of the coolest places I got to visit. It used to be a gathering place for famous writers such as Hemingway and James Joyce, and now sells numerous works by these authors and others.
The Louvre- home of the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and the coolest basement you’ll ever see.
And, last but not least, Montmartre… Here lies Sacre Couer and the largest mount in Paris. It’s a town full of character, street art, and years upon years of history waiting to be unveiled.
You can see pictures from the visits to other locations shortly… (I promise it won’t take me this long!). This is all for now simply because blogging has become more difficult than ever imagined. I cannot wait to be back and able to type on a keyboard made of keys.
