Paris Day Four

It was a mixture of sadness and excitement when we awoke early on the Thursday morning in the little apartment room which had become so normal to us to pack our suitcases and head home.
Due to our lack of knowledge that the Louvre was closed on Tuesdays - the day we attempted to go - we decided we should have the hotel hold our luggage and go to the Louvre in the morning to be back home ready in time for our car taking us to the airport. However, as we sat eating breakfast that morning we were made aware that the Louvre had been evacuated due to the Seine raising 6 feet during the night due to the mass amounts of rain. This was crazy for us to see as we had been standing in the exact spots shown in the news report which were now completely covered in water. The Louvre was evacuated for people's safety as well as protecting the artwork stowed underneath the museum which were at danger of being ruined by the water. 
So we decided to take it easy and have a relaxed morning/afternoon in cafe where we had our last glass(es) of French wine and our last basket(s) of bread. Then my friend's uncle - who lived in Paris - gave us a lift to the airport to start our journey back home. Our journey involved a quick stopover in Amsterdam and then back home to Glasgow. 
We were all very tired and so we slept for quite a bit of the flight. It was strange coming back from a very rainy Paris to an incredibly warm and sunny Scotland, that never happens! But I'm glad we had a fabulous trip, one that we will not forget for a long time to come and we are already planning a trip back as well as to other countries!
