A Parisian Dream: Day 1

Dear travellers, dreamers and life lovers,

A couple of days ago I opened my travelling season aka the end of Uni with a trip to Paris with one of my besties. After first visiting it in October last year, Paris has quickly become my safe haven. A plus side of having visited a city already is that you don’t have to run around doing all the touristy things, but you get to relax and enjoy it much more. With that said, after a very stressful academic year, I’ve been craving inspiration and, for me, that comes in form of art. So where else would I go if not to Paris.
That is why we started off the trip with a day entirely dedicated to Museums.
These were taken at the Musée du Louvre:

After Louvre, it was time for Musée d’Orsay.
Its selection of Van Gogh was striking as I believed most of his ‘more famous’ work would be at the his museum in Amsterdam.
And a visit to this museum would not be complete without a photo by the famous clock which overlooks the city.

We wrapped up the day by a visit to the incredibly aesthetic and airy Musée de l’Orangerie.

We finished off the day in true granny style, falling asleep before 9pm (with a cheeky wine bottle and a chick-flick).

More about our following days in Paris coming soon!
Lots of love,
Asja
