Beautiful beautiful Giverny. This place has been on my list for so long, but you know how you never visit places in your own country because you kind of live there so you just tell yourself you'll visit some other time and in the end, you never do? Yeah, well that's exactly what happened. Except, in two months I'll be moving to Boston and I've been wanting to visit every place I can in and around Paris in the month and a half that I have left here. Sooooo... Last weekend, Ray and I took the train to visit Giverny! For those who don't know about Giverny, it's where you will find Claude Monet's beautiful garden and home. A garden full of roses, lavenders, water lilies... It was heaven to me. You cannot not get inspired living in such a beautiful home. We spent about 4 hours walking in the garden, taking photos and just staring at the pond full of water lilies.

We had lunch at a lovely restaurant called Baudy. The food was okay but the staff was very friendly and the view to the outdoor garden was beautiful. Little did we know, Baudy was the rendez-vous place for Monet, Renoir, Rodin as well as my favorite painter Sisley.

After that we visited the Museum of Impressionism, the town church and Monet's grave. The museum was ok (they didn't have a lot of pieces to show), the church was lovely, and the grave was... Well I'm not going to lie, I couldn't care less about looking at Monet's grave. Also, cemeteries are creepy. It's still worth it I guess. Just to tick it off your list, you know?

If you're ever planning on visiting Giverny, you can take the train from Paris to Vernon (~45 minute ride) and then take a 15 minute bus ride to Giverny. Make sure to check the bus schedule beforehand. We were lucky and arrived in Vernon a few minutes before the bus left to Giverny (and if we hadn't made it, we would've waited two hours for the next ride).
