Today brought to you by Rodin

French artist Auguste Rodin referred to his life as ‘une vie a plain bord’ or ‘a life filled to the brim’ or even depending on translation ‘a life at full pace’. Seems rather appropriate for me at the moment.

I started today early and got down to the Eiffel Tower. It’s an amazing sight, especially it’s stature when right underneath, however I do think it’s much prettier when you catch a glimpse of it accidentally while walking along, not quite expecting it and just a little reminder that you are in fact in Paris…

So during all this, another exciting thing happened right under the Effiel tower. I saw my first ever bumble bee. He got out of there as quick as you can say ‘focus’ to the camera, but there was no mistake it was a bumble bee! This is the flower it was on (a d yes I was again stopping to smell the ‘roses’.. It’s what I do).

After that excitement I co tinged to tick off my Paris boxes with all the major sites

But it was the Musee Rodin that captured me today. Such a grand French building, beautiful gardens and famous artwork just sort of dotted around. It’s crazy to think the famous artists who wandered these streets and lived in these houses. It was also a peaceful place for me away from the crowds ! Heaven.
