I didn’t fall in love. For most of my life, I dreamed of going to Paris and I expected to fall in love with that legendary city…but I didn’t. Nevertheless, Paris was a good idea! I shopped. I ate. I shopped. I toured. I shopped some more. It is definitely a “bucket list” experience. So, while I didn’t fall in love, Paris and I definitely became dear friends, and I will certainly return. Here, a few of the Paris classics…

As close as I could get to the Mona Lisa
I spent the majority of my time in the Egyptian Collection; it’s the largest outside of Cairo.
