It's Paris Sweetheart -Day3 Part 1

Our third day in Paris was a bit overwhelming. Since we bought the Paris Museum Pass, we gained access to 60 museums and monuments. Now, that's too much for one day. Our pass was valid for two days. But still we needed to narrow down what we want to see or else, we won't see the other sites. 

The price of the pass back then was €32 but now I checked it is €39. It is still cheaper than buying tickets at each major museum and monument (even if you choose to visit 10 places only).

First in our list was The Musée du Louvre. As I mentioned in my last post, visiting this museum was a dream come true. Since I moved here in Europe, I became interested on arts and history (with the influence of my better half). 




The Musée du Louvre is the one of the largest museums in the whole wide world. Let me repeat that it is the central landmark of Paris, France. The Louvre Pyramid was actually completely at 1989 only. But since then, the place became a tremendous hit.

I'm lost for words to describe how exquisite the structure of the museum and everything in it. There's so much to share here but I certainly don't know how to start. Let me just share with you some of the popular visited portraits and statues inside the museum.
The best known portrait by Leonardo da Vinci. It was created between 1503 - 1517.  I actually didn't know that its size is just 77cm x 57 cm until I set my eyes on that popular portrait. You can see what I'm talking about in my previous blog post.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a 2nd-century BC marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike. Wikipedia

Venus de Milo is an ancient greek statue created by Alexandros of Antioch.
It is the Aphrodite of Milos.
Painting by Jacques-Louis David called The Coronation of Napoleon.
The sculpture of the Seated Scribe or Squatting Scribe is one of the most important examples of ancient Egyptian art. It represents a figure of a seated scribe at work. Wikipedia
One of interesting paintings found at the ceiling of Louvre Musuem.
As I said this day was a profuse one and I don't think I can't share everything just in one go. You'll have to excuse me then because I think I need to deliver this day trip by parts. Let's just say this one is Part 1 of my Day 3 in Paris.

  6. @Papaleng You're absolutely right. That's where some parts of Da Vinci Code Movie were taken. After visiting this place I watched the movie again to recall the spots I've been.

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
