Sister Holiday [Part 4: More of PARIS!]

Back to important business: the discussion of Paris. 
In Paris, Hilary and I enjoyed a leisurely morning at Musee d'Orsay. A big fan of Van Gogh, Hil was practically undone seeing his self-portrait in person. Pretty spectacular!

The background in the above picture features the famous train stationed turned art museum. 

One huge change I noticed the moment we stepped into the d'Orsay is that you're  no longer allowed to take pictures inside the museum. It changed the entire experience! No longer can people go painting to painting snapping pictures. The change is most welcomed!

We then headed to the Louvre:

Jardin des Tuileries and the Louvre

The Triumphal Arch

The Pyramid!

Hilary in Jardin des Tuileries --- you can even see Place de la Concorde and the Arch de Triomphe back there!

So relaxing!

On Rue de Rivoli

And a view from the islands!

J'adore this area of Paris!

 So beautiful!

Aaaaahhhh. The bank of the Seine.

The backside of Notre Dame

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." - Ernest Hemingway

Ash, love your pictures! We're planning an Italy trip for the Spring but this is making me want to go to Paris/London. What to do.....:)

I love Italy, too! Hard decision!!! Maybe Paris and Florence??? That would be a dreamy combination.
