This is a video showing a great use of the sketchbook to capture the experience of an expedition.
The greatest thing about visiting Paris is discovering things with a profound personal connection to the city. One of the best ways to increase the chances of this happening is with a Paris Pass or a Paris Museum Pass. These are two products worth comparing to see which works best for your style of discovering a city. Both passes offer free entry to many of the most visited sites in Paris and easily pay for themselves when compared to visiting just two or three locations.
The Paris Pass provides you with a Paris Museum Pass and additional transportation features, sightseeing information, and activities. The Paris Pass website compares the features of both cards. The Paris Pass can be purchased online. While it can be shipped to your Paris location it's best to purchase this pass early and have it shipped to your home so you can read the additional information and plan activities before your vacation. This also helps avoid the logistics of acquiring the pass in Paris when you could be out making great discoveries.
The Paris Museum Pass, which is included with the Paris Pass, is primarily a museum access pass for people who want to navigate the city and find activities on their own. As a result it costs a little less than the full Paris Pass. The Paris Museum Pass is available in Paris for two, four, and six day periods (cost is 42,56, and 69 Euros). Planning a visit to Paris for two, four, or six full days is the best way to take full advantage of these cards. The Museum Pass is easy to purchase in Paris and allows the greatest flexibility for planning.
Both cards, through the Museum Pass, offer access to museums without waiting in lines for a day pass purchase. This makes it easy and affordable to revisit a museum to complete a tour or see something again, stop in to a museum cafe, use the facilities, or enter a museum quickly for a short visit to see something specific without feeling obligated to stay longer to get your money's worth. You may also find something you never expected to discover simply by not having to buy a pass for a museum that just happens to be right in front of you at the right moment. This is a great way to see Paris and many other cities in the world have similar products worth looking for.
Why wouldn't you want to go to France? History, art, food, wine, what else is there?
