The Louvre…

… is a busy place!

I was bored on a rainy afternoon a few days ago and I decided to watch some videos I made. I stumbled upon this one, which I had totally forgotten about. I started thinking about my time in Paris, almost exactly a year ago now. Good times for sure!

A visit to the Musée du Louvre was an absolute highlight. It’s massive. And that’s an understatement. We stayed there an entire afternoon and I think we only saw 20% of the museum. It’s possible to walk around for a week and still see new stuff. All the famous sculptures and paintings can be seen in one day though. If you hurry up!

I looked up some old photos of our visit as well…

I’d recommed that you get there early. And by early I mean at least an hour before it opens. And even then, be prepared to queue for a while!

There's always a queue...
Queues.
