Our second adventure in Paris spent eating, drinking, shopping, and perusing museums. The Rodin Museum is not to be missed with its gorgeous sculpture gardens and stately architecture.

Fashion fans like me will love the Yves Saint Laurent Museum, featuring his office inside the original atelier and a number of couture gowns.

Eagerly awaiting our next adventure to the land of croissants.
