Travel Tuesday.....Louvre

One of my favorite places in Paris is the Louvre as well as the area surrounding it . Have you ever had the feeling you’ve been somewhere before, but it was the first time you have ever stepped foot there? This was that place for me. Deja vu!!


On both visits we enjoyed lunch & lazy relaxing on the stone benches along the walls.

It has such great views.

That my Husband waitng for me to stop taking pictures so we can go inside already!

That’s me in the middle. Enjoying a book & waiting for my hubby to bring us back some lunch!!

Great views!

View from the inside looking out.

Of course this museum has such beautiful artwork, such as the Mona Lisa.


 But my favorite part? The basement. Here is my sister standing by the model of what the Louvre once was.


Here’s the ACTUALL columns in tacked. It absolutely amazes me......
No matter how many times you walk this gigantic museum you’ll always see something new !

I think the familiarity is we have seen many of the works in books and as prints.

I can't believe the original columns are still intact. Amazing. That is as cool as the artwork the museum houses.

Wonderful pics.

I came from an Asian country and my dream is to visit Paris someday. Your pictures make me remember my dream and work hard for it!

Beautiful. Will you be going back next year with the family? Your sister looks so much like you - only with dark hair. :)

And I really really wish I had seen the Mona Lisa when I was in Paris...
