April has been a busy month for us, so I’m glad I was finally able to finish putting together the layout for the second part of February. On Wednesday, our 3rd day in Paris, we went to the Louvre. Upon our arrival, the line to buy tickets was super long, and I was glad that we’d bought our tickets online ahead of time. I could have never imagined how large the Louvre was and how much art was in one building. We were exhausted when we gave up, and we haven’t even gone through the entire first floor. I felt like there was only so much a person can take in before they get cranky. We had lunch at the bistro inside the museum, and we walked around Paris in the afternoon.
We made our way over to Notre-Dame and my jaw dropped as we approached it. It is massive. We took some photos of the outside, and then we went inside. I didn’t take a lot of photos because I couldn’t remember how to put my camera in quiet mode (it’s a bit finicky), but I did take a few photos with my iPhone. We looked at the information with the history of Notre-Dame and I couldn’t wrap my mind around its age.. almost 1000 years old. It was just so beautiful. We’re so lucky we had the opportunity to go before the fire.
On Valentine’s Day, our 4th day in Paris, we had tickets to go up the Eiffel Tower. I had looked at the weather forecast prior to our trip, and that day was the day most likely to be clear. However, because it was Valentine’s Day, the only time that tickets were available were first thing in the morning. We didn’t mind as we could go, spend as much time as we wanted there, then explore some more. We had lunch at a little Italian place not too far from the Eiffel Tower, and we headed back to our Airbnb to figure out what we wanted to do in the evening.
It was our last night, and We wanted to go see the outside of Moulin Rouge since we didn’t have tickets for the show (don’t forget to add travel notification to your credit card(s)! I was in the process of dealing with my credit card company when the tickets sold out for the evening we wanted to go). We had some pizza at a place nearby, and then we went into a bar to kill some time before heading to Trocadero to watch the Eiffel Tower light show. I love the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower.
Here is the process video, the photos from the spreads, and below all that the list of materials I used on the spread.
