    It's one thing to know how something came to be but completely something else when you live it. What's something you miss about being online during that time?

    I feel like we just need to move to Paris for a while. There's SO much history you could spend a lifetime there and still have things to do and see.

    Thank you for the suggestions! I have the places you mentioned written down. Do you travel to Paris often?

    Thank you for the suggestion! I'm pretty sure we're planning on going to Sacré-Cœur at some point. Is there anything you regret not doing from your trip?

    I've heard the Egyptian exhibit is super cool. I started watching a Paris expat (I think it's like Jay S-something on youtube) and that's when I first heard about these "secret" Louvre entrances....

    Thank you so much for the suggestions! We'll definitely be living that café life.

    Okay, cool! Do you remember about how much the rental cost? I'm assuming it can't be too much, right?

    Is there a particular reason you like D'Orsay over the Louvre?

    Montmartre sounds lovely. That's where Sacré-Cœur is, correct? I think we were hoping to spend some time there if possible.

    Thank you so much!

    Oh man, I had forgotten he did those things. That jogged my memory though and I had to look it up. My favorite quote of his is "I don't do drugs. I am drugs." It totally fits his "madman" schtick.

    Part of me still doubts Dali's assertion that no drugs were involved with the making of his works. What are your thoughts on that?

    We love to slow down and try and connect with our surroundings when we travel so we can actually enjoy creating experiences we'll remember. Bike or moped? Is biking dangerous there?

    We love museums and will probably be doing that, walking the city, and enjoying cafés. My SIL is living in Paris currently and volunteers at a homeless shelter, so we'll be helping out a couple of days there as well.

    Oh man, Picasso was one prolific artist. Haha, do you feel like it was more obsession or dedication for him? (I guess this is off topic?)

    Thank you! My wife has been before back when she was still in college so we're super excited to finally get to go together.

    I have heard that there are other places to get great views without having to deal with as many tourists.

    I absolutely LOVE art and will definitely be going to the Louvre, but from what I've heard I could spend a week just in one wing easily, so we'll have to come back and do a dedicated Louvre trip I think.

    When do you think you'll go back next?
