Travel Blogs from Paris
We decided to catch a taxi to our apartment as we were a bit over stuffing round with buses and trains and trying to carry our luggage.

... in the air. Theres also the shameful ninja photographer, taking a terrible prohibited snapshot just because, evading a scolding and attempting to escape out the nearest 'no exit.' Everywhere we seem to go theres someone propping in front of us to photograph something pointless. People are walking through overcrowded museums photographing each item and the information beside it, so they can say they've been there and maybe look at it later. Theres people taking photos of ...
