Paris (Part 2)

So now that Blogger's back up and running, here's the rest of the photos from Paris!
Like I mentioned before, we kinda went without a plan. We just wanted to explore the city and see it from the locals point of view.
Side Note: I'm not sure if getting lost every single time we stepped off of the metro is conducive to trying to blend in like the locals, but we sure did that...
We didn't end up inside the Louvre... The line was insanely long, and we didn't get the tip to purchase tickets elsewhere until after the trip.

We did visit the Musee D'Orsay, which we were told was more accessible, and it did not disappoint. 
(You're not allowed to take photos in the museum, but Andrew snuck this one of the gorgeous ceilings.)

We also ate in the cafe in the museum... I had the best quiche Lorraine ever... Ever ever.

Now, in no particular order... More photos!

Arc de Triomphe 

Andrew on the Metro platform (Probably irritated that I was nagging that we were lost... Again.)

 Goyard!

Trees, Cars, and the Arc in the background.

A little blown out, but the Eiffel Tower from one of the bridges. 

Possibly my favorite part of the whole trip was when we went to the Eiffel Tower. We made it to the park next to it, and wouldn't you know... It started to rain. It was pretty gorgeous, nonetheless. 

I took this video on my phone, it's shaky and terrible, but, like they say in Midnight in Paris... Paris is definitely better in the rain.

So, despite the lack of amazing photos, the trip really was the best ever. We ate good food, drank good wine, and just enjoyed the fact that we were in a new place together. It was the perfect last minute honeymoon, and a great start to our travels abroad. Check out #clarksinparis13 on Instagram for more photos!
