The Louvre

20 Instagram Photos of the Louvre, Paris

I was going to write a post on the Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre to add to my collection of Paris posts, but there's only so much you can say about walking through the gardens, and ending up at the museum when you don't actually go inside. Don't get me wrong both the gardens and the museum are incredible, both really beautiful in different ways so I've decided to a[...]

Lunch at Ralph’s Restaurant in Paris

I can’t remember how or where I first heard about Ralph's restaurant Paris, but all I know is that before we went in December I’d wanted to go there for a very long time.

It's a shame actually because I don't think he will ever actually read all the praise I'm throwing his way. He sorted flights and the hotel, which for someone who hasn't been before to do such a good job of it is nothing short of amazing. It probably helped how much I've tol[...]
