Paris, part 2

Yes, there is a part two to Paris! It includes about a million more pictures of the Eiffel Tower, another bike tour, and endless pain au chocolat. Some of my favorite parts of this jam-packed few days included a nerdy bike tour complete with high-lighter yellow safety vests and a cruise down the Seine, visiting the bakery by our hostel at least once a day for pastries and baguettes (completed by gruyere cheese from the grocery store next door), and taking in the views of Paris from the top of the Arc de Triomphe (where I took the photo in my header!). We also went on a tour of Montmartre which, typical of our trip, we barely made it to 30 15 minutes late. Visiting Versailles was just as unreal as I always imagined it to be, and also about 20 degrees hotter (actually almost melted). We also made it to the Musee d'Orsay, which is hands-down one of my favorite museums I've been to, ever. I'm not much of an art buff (read, at all), but I almost died over all the Monets. 

Got confused about if we were on a bike tour or the Tour de France. 

Oh, stop it, Paris. We get it, you're gorgeous. 

The vaguely underwhelming new fountain show at Versailles. 

So hot Jess turned into a human fountain with the help of a water bottle. 

View from the Musee d'Orsay. 

Gruyere and French bread; the only two things I really need to be happy in life. 

I miss you already, Paris!
