Spring Break 2017: Paris - April 8

The Seine

Here we go again

First stop, the Louve!

Davinci's Mona Lisa

From the inside looking out. How can the Louve be so HUGE???

There are painting everywhere! Even on the ceilings!

These hallways never end!

Trying to rest after all of the walking inside of the Louve while we wait for CR to be done

We finally decided to ditch CR and go walk through the Touleries Gardens. It a gorgeous day! 

Concorde Fountain

CR saw at least most of the Louve and caught up with us.

Crepes from a street vendor

Arc de Triomphe. At the end of the Champs-Elysees. It is at the center of the Place de Gaulle where twelve streets meet. The monument honors those who fought and died for France during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. The names of all French victories and generals are inscribed on the inner and outer surfaces. Beneath it it is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from WWI. 

Pretty cool stairs walking up to the top

The city of Paris

The city of Paris with the Eiffel Tower

Ahhh there it is!

We went and ate at the Latin Quarters. A really cute area where you can find anything to eat and they have great prices.

A quick view of the Notre Dame on our way home at night.

Spring Break 2017: Brussells - April 7

These are pictures of our apartment where we stayed in London. 

On the elevator up to the train.

This was our train ride from London to Brussels in first class!

Fancy breakfast

Bougie Mami

Once we got to Brussels we just walked to the main areas of Brussels. It was early in the morning and it was peaceful and pretty!

We walked over to Manneken Pis

Gracie hated it!

This is just so beautiful! This is town square and the Grand Place

Lunch time

Famous Belgian Waffles

Famous Belgian wanna-be eating Belgian Waffles! Not really but it's a cute picture!

We got on a bus to go see a different part of town. And It seemed like as soon as we got on the bus/train we all got so tired!

Atomium. Built for a world's fair but remodeled so that people could go inside.

There was no G so she had to get on an E?

At the Brussels train station ready to make our way back to Paris.
