I just want to begin by saying that Norwegian Airlines did NOT disappoint. An 8 hour red eye, and I was navigating Paris with 2 hours of sleep. I succeeded.
Day 1: Once I got to the Airbnb [on the other side of Paris] I took a nap, got my shit together, and headed to the canal for a sunset boat ride. I drank a lot of red wine, as did everyone else around me.
Day 2: I accidentally slept until 2pm and therefore missed my scheduled times for the Picasso Museum and the Opera house. Oops. Thankfully, I was still able to see one of them; PICASSO. I then headed to the Luxembourg Gardens and proceeded to stumble across the best burger place in the literal world.
We took on the town with his work pals, and danced our butts off.
TOURIST SWAG. Can’t lie, this was pretty great. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if no other humans existed in the world in that moment.
Notre Dame Cathedral @ night w/ my beer and my bae.
The Louvre. The Mona Lisa was probably 16 inches tall, obviously much smaller than I imagined. Meanwhile, that huge painting just directly in front of it. We were there about 2.5 hours which was not nearly enough to see the entirely of it, so we hit the highlights.
We moved into another Airbnb across town for the last two nights. This is beautiful Opera house whose ticket I slept through. I, therefore, was only able to see the outside of it. I was quite devastated. Regardless, it was stunning. Did I mention I ate this entire ice-cream?
Observations: If you don’t know French, they’ll make you aware that it bothers them. The rumors are true.
