France: Paris- Time for the Louvre!!!!

Of note, before delving into the Louvre, we also visited the Musee d'Orsay earlier in the trip, but they had a very strict 'NO CAMERA' policy, and plenty of people around enforcing it if you tried to ignore the rule. Honestly, we don't mind, as it does tend to make you (and the people around you) be more focused and aware. I just wanted to mention that it is also a fantastic museum in the city that is worth your time!

And now: The Louvre!
We were really lucky with the Louvre Abu Dhabi opening two weeks prior to this visit, and Adam got an 'Art Pass' membership at that time. This allows him and a guest (ME!!!) unlimited access to the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Louvre Paris. We walked right into the Louvre in Paris, without waiting, just by showing this card. It was awesome, bypassing all of the lines, and there were plenty of them. We were actually some of the very first people into the museum, and immediately went to the very end (where the Mona Lisa is) and then worked our way back towards the front. It was perfect, as it felt that we had the place to ourselves most of the time!
