So, the last day before we went home, Wim and I went to Paris for a day. We stood up early and after a nice french breakfast with croissants and baguette, we took the train to Paris Gare du l'Est from the station which was just next to the camping. Everything went well and easy and in no time we were there already.

I've been to the Louvre one time before with my sister in Law a couple of years earlier and loved it right away. What an awesome museum this is! Ofcourse I didn't had time enough to see everything there so I wanted to go back there for sure! And now I had the opportunity to explore it some more. It was the first time for Wim to see the Louvre museum and he enjoyed it very much as well.

The "Louvre" museum
We took a lot of photo's and esspecially the Egypte department stole our harts!

I never saw the Mona Lisa so that was our first aim. I heard lots about it, see it on television, so I knew that it was a small painting. We followed the signs and more and more people surrounded us when we got closer to it. I was very curious and was not surprised that when we got there the hole area was crowded and it was difficult to get closer. But we managed. The painting is beautiful but indeed very small. I guess it's the most photographed painting ever.

After the Louvre we went to the "Dôme des Invalides" with the tombe of Napoleon which I saw for the last time back in 1988 so it was nice to see it again and  that we could make digital photo's of it.  We didn't explore the  museum that lies next to it because the weather was so lovely and we wanted to spend more time outside.

The "Louvre" museum
So we took the metro to Quartier Latin and walked through this lovely area. We got a little hungry and bought a couple of Crêpes or Galettes with Ham and Cheese and something to drink and went to a nearby parc. There was a little parc just next to the river Seine near the "Nôtre Dame" and it was quite nice there. There were a lot of locals enjoying their break and one guy was drawing everybody without wanted to sell it to them, I guess he was a student or something like that and needed the practice. He was very good and it was very nice to see. I immediatly wanted to draw or paint myself. But we went further and explored the beautiful cathedral Nôtre Dame.

After a great day in Paris we took the train back to the camping and had to pack our bags and clean the tent. We took a last swim and had our last dinner at the restaurant of the camping and enjoyed our last hours there with a nice bottle of french rosé and some delicious frence cheese where that area is famous about (Brie)!

So Cheers and till next time, France! we had another great vacation here!!
