A world famous painting, in a world famous museum…how could I not get a postcard to remember it?
I was lucky enough to find my way to the Mona Lisa when I visited the Louvre in Paris. For anyone who has been to the Louvre, they’ll understand what I mean by that – the place is an absolute maze! Thankfully, the Mona Lisa isn’t hidden away, and the crowds are a great indicator of where it is.
I love reading all the theories of who the woman in the painting was…it adds to the air of mystery, so it was definitely on my list of things to see at the Louvre. I’m not too sure what I expected, but something I’ve heard from many other people too is that the actual painting is way smaller than you imagine it to be. Unlike all the other paintings in the same section of the Louvre, the Mona Lisa is behind a glass screen, which itself is behind a railing. I waited patiently to get my photo with it (of course!) and then decided I just had to have a postcard too!
