There’s very little that I love more than a good meal in life (other than binge watching shows on Netflix, of course). So when I was in Paris, I was excited to eat all of the chausson aux pommes, cheese, meats, and croissants that my heart desired.
I was especially excited when Matt surprised me with lunch Le Relais de l’Entrecôte on our third day in Paris, after we had spent the past few hours building up an appetite walking through the Musée d’Orsay and admiring some of the best works of the Impressionist movement.
As I’ve said (probably way too many times), I’m a big museum nerd. Whether they focus on art, natural history, or science, I love them all. And, as y’all probably already know, Paris has some of the best museums in the world, rich with history and culture. So when Matt and I were in Paris the other week, I dragged him along with me to a few of my favorite museums.
I’ve always been a wanderer at heart. Whether it be flying across the world to see the Great Pyramids of Giza, taking the train down to Washington, DC, or simply walking out my backdoor to see if anything new is going on in my city, I’ve been incredibly lucky to see so much this world has to offer.
But now that I’ve been working full-time for the past few years, it’s definitely a little more difficult to be sporadic when it comes to traveling–both time-wise and expense-wise. And while I’m the first to admit that I’ a bit of a shopaholic (I’m looking at you Sephora and Amazon Prime), if you put your mind to it saving for your dream vacation will become a breeze!
I’m the first to admit that I’m a huge museum nerd. I usually revolve trips I take around restaurants I want to try and museums I want to spend a few hours exploring, which I’m not even embarrassed to admit!
What I love about museums is that they’re not just for people who like art or design, but instead are institutions that have been set up to teach people about the culture and history of either their own society or another peoples’ lives–which I think is incredibly important in this day and age.
Happy Friday guys!
I basically only got through this week by fueling myself with green smoothies, podcasts, and the occasional Diet Coke, but we’re almost to the weekend! I’m flying out tonight for another weekend trip, this time to Washington, DC, to see one of my closest friends from growing up and to check out a few museums along the way.
Last weekend though, I was down in Atlanta and although it rained almost the entire time I was totally fine with that since it was a whole 30 degrees warmer down south than it’s been in Connecticut for the past two weeks!
Not going to lie, I think that I’m still in a bit of a food coma from Thanksgiving! I probably ate enough turkey and mashed potatoes to feed an entire family but as we all know, calories don’t count on Thanksgiving (or your birthday, Christmas, etc.) so it’s all good.
We also started Thanksgiving morning with a 5k run through downtown Charleston and although I was feeling a little slow after the wine I’d drunken the night before, the weather was just too gorgeous to be groggy for long.
