The last two days in Paris were spent doing the rest of the touristy things on our list such as, visiting the Notre Dame and the Louve. We walked around, ate as much French food as we could fit into our bellies and tried to take in as much of the city as we could. But before we could do all of that, we realized we had no clean clothes and so we were forced to do laundry in a foreign country. Let me tell you, that was an interesting experience! You figure that using a washing machine would be pretty simple, even in a foreign country... but I was wrong. Word to the wise, make sure you ready the directions for the washing machine before you start putting in the detergent! Nevertheless, after a slight delay, we were on our way to taking in as much of Paris as two days would allow us.
Some of my favorite highlights included sitting in a cafe, eating, drinking and just people watching. If I could, I would do that ALL DAY EVERYDAY! I also loved the fact that my family and I put a lock with our last name on the Love Bridge. I just thought it was a great way to symbolically show that no matter far we are, we will always love each other, since my sister and I will be leaving for grad school and undergrad this fall. I was so sad to leave Paris, it was unlike any other city I had ever been to. The the food and lifestyle were incredible and life changing. I can definitely say that fell head over heels with this city and I CANNOT wait to come back soon!
Doing laundry in a foreign country leads to some very interesting and creative outfit choices

After trying chocolate croissants from multiple bakeries, this place was the winner. I had one everyday from here.
