Paris day three

I woke up on Wednesday morning with a good vibe. Well knowing that I was in Paris, it put a smile on my face. The temperature reached over 30 degrees which was  hot compared to Wigan, back home. On the third day we decided to dedicate the day to Museums. We was originally meant to be going to Jardin Des Plantes, a place where we could have a 'breather' but the thought of waking up at 8am killed us. So, Pompidou Centre and The Louvre was on the To Do list! When we fetched a taxi to Pompidou Centre we came across this street full of Jewrelly shops. When I say full I mean FULL. Literally, there was like an endless road of shops. Unfortunaetly when we went inside, they informed us that only wholesalers can purchase the products they sold so we was off limits. I pleaded to buy some bracelets I despreatly wanted but the shop owner refused which put me in a foul mood. However, on to the Pompidou Centre it was one of a kind. I loved how it was a total contrast from Paris, as the insde was very modern. Rows and rows of modern art work, it was endless. The museum on the whole was different compared to museums in the United Kingdom. I don't know how... it just felt like it. There were several art work that I loved, some interesting, some confusing! Overall it was astonishing. I loved being surrounded by a crowd of people that had a passion for art, really inspiring.
Afterwards, we took a short walk to The Louvre. Once again we was strolling the streets of Paris on an amazing day. I filmed a few clips of me walking through the streets as I loved the atmosphere.
When we arrived at The Louvre it was really surprsiing on how huge it was. You would expect it to be not that big when scanning through photos, but when seeing it right infront of you, mindblowing. Why was I so shocked? I was told that it was the biggest museum so I should have had a big expectation. To be honest, I can't even describe how it was. It was one of them places where you have to visit to experience the atmosphere. I was really impressed of the art work that was located there. Thousands of pieces of precious art work that has been stored carefully for hundreds of years... still excist. It made me want to live in the 1700's where everything was ancient and fragile. It took us around 4-5hours to walk around the museum, and one IMPORTANT thing we learnt that day, wear comfortable walking shoes when walking nonstop throughout the day. It was such an expereince Paris Day Three. Well, I can say that I can tick off a 'To Do' thing on my list for sumer 2012 ( which was visit atleast two museums!)
A day to remember!
