As you probably know by now, Paris is like a home away from home to me. Friday night's attacks in the city were heart breaking and I felt so sad to hear these horrible things happening to the city I love. It made me spend some time over the weekend searching through my memories and photos of Paris, and wanting to share more of both here.
During my trip in August we went out to Fondation Louis Vuitton, which is a modern art museum that opened in October 2014. Designed by Frank Gehry, it is absolutely one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever been to. It feels like you're on a boat, with water running through the bottom level and views of Paris from the top levels.
I admit to being far more taken with the building itself than with the exhibits but this was definitely a place that I could have happily spent all day at.
You can prepurchase tickets to avoid waiting in line, but we also went at the very end of the day and were lucky to not have to share it with many others at all. There is also a Velib bike share station right outside the museum, so if the weather is nice I recommend hopping on a bike and going for a ride to or from.
I've been working on a Paris workshop for Destination Documented literally a couple of months now and haven't been able to make it come together like I want. I hope to be sharing more Paris tips and memories there soon, but for now I'm keeping the city close in my heart.
