eurotrip part trois

The photo tour of Paris continues…

Pont des Arts (a bridge on the Seine where lovers add padlocks with their names to commemorate their love and toss the keys in the Seine – GAG – no, but seriously, it’s really pretty, especially in the morning sun)

  1. You DEFINITELY saw more of the Louvre than I did! Good for you. If I had to do it again, I would save the Louvre for just one day. It is huge!! Beautiful pictures. Sounds like you had a blast! And I never saw that bridge. It is quite interesting. Cheesy, but interesting.

    • Believe it or not, we were only in the Louvre for 3, maybe 4 hours. We were rushing around though. If I go back, like you, I might spend a full day there. I’d avoid the Mona Lisa, since I’ve seen her 3x now – I’ve had my fill and gotten the pics. The bridge was cheesy, but cool and it’s right next to the Louvre. Even though we had wanted to find it at some point, we actually stumbled upon it by accident on our way to the Louvre.
