Travel from your couch is about all most of us can do at this point. While we are not “locked down” yet in North Carolina we are all trying to be smart and take precautions. It is coming. COVID 19 is real and raging world wide. I decided that this week, at least, I would share some of my favorite places with my readers from the comfort of my own couch. Some of these posts, like the one today, will feature pictures I have not shared before. Some will be reposts. The goal is to provide some travel options for those who want to travel virtually. I am happy to revisit some of these favorite places.
First up is The Louvre in Paris. I have never shared any of the hundreds of pictures we took on our trip there in August 2017 on the blog. I don’t know why. I think it is such an overwhelming place that I just didn’t know what to share. But today I will just pick a few of my favorites with a few captions.
With so many pictures to choose from today will be devoted to pictures taken outside the magnificent Louvre. The day we visited it was a bit overcast and rained while we were inside so the pictures may show a darkness that is not always there. Regardless I hope my pictures transport you a little bit today.
Hope you liked this brief outside tour today. Come back all week for different featured places including the inside of the Louvre. Have you been to this magnificent place? If so, what was your favorite part? Tell me all about it in the comments and Comment for a Cause – the Diaper Bank of North Carolina.

Thank you for these great pictures. We only saw the outside as we didn’t have time to wait in line. But there was plenty to see outside. I so look forward to seeing the inside with your eyes (and camera). This is a great idea to take us travelling with you.
Thanks, Darlene!!! I figured while we were all suck at home it was a good time to revisit some of these places. The Louvre is worthy of many posts so stay tuned! Stay safe, my friend.
I’m in! Excited to visit the Louvre with you. I last visited in 1973! As you know, we must stay at home, we’re on week 2, so thanks for something to look forward to!
Well let me be your tour guide as I take you around the world! I think this is going to be a good way to keep my sanity –revisiting some of my favorite places ! Thanks for joining me on the couch. Keep your distance, please! 🙂
Hey Beth Ann! Sounds like you and Chris are doing ok. We are too. Love your idea of virtual travel at the Louvre. Ever since 4 years of French in high school, I have wanted to go to France and see the beautiful places there. So thanks for taking me there girlfriend! God bless you and your family. Praying for safety for you.
We got 2 inches of snow last night! We are sheltered in place…
Love, Sue and Dale
What a great way to go to the Louvre and no better time. Looking forward to the tour. I love the delicate architecture on the building.
Beautiful photos. I rather like armchair travel. It’s easy on the budget and seems leisurely. I’ve been to the Lourve but I was a teenager and it may not have made the biggest impression on me at the time. Now I’m all about *wow* when I see photos of it.
Looking forward to seeing more pictures from your travels. We’ll live vicariously through you. 🙂
Paris is tops on my list of places to visit next time we see my sister. It’s only about a 3 hour train ride from her so whenever we’ll be able to go again it’ll be part of the trip!
Thanks for taking us on a tour! Haven’t been there but my daughter was and has great photos also.
