I love living in a city where you can easily walk from place to place on any given day, no public transportation needed. Although that does have its drawbacks, like me having walked through almost every single pair of shoes that I own. On the bright side, with us moving back to the states in a few months, the prospect of leaving some dead shoes behind is sounding better every day as I think of how I’m going to fit all of our stuff in four suitcases….
I can’t say that I have one particular favorite book, but The Phantom of the Opera has always been up there — I adore the book and the musical (but don’t even get me started on that mid 2000’s movie adaption. Horrible.) and conveniently decided to reread it at the beginning of the year while I was on hold for some new books. Lucky for me, MK was game to take the tour of the Opéra Garnier after a morning trip to the Musée d’Orsay. I hadn’t taken the tour since I was here on study abroad in 2009 — its hard to forget how beautiful the inside of the opera is, but somehow I seem to have forgotten all the details that really make the place so pretty. The Opéra Garnier is, hands down, one of the most beautiful places in Paris!
