Yes, though I kinda didn't want to leave there! >w<
I had an amazing time, to put it shortly and I know I could have always done more. I can cross off some items from my bucket list. Among the highlights:
--Climbed up to the top of the Eiffel tower via elevator(s) yes 2 separate needed! The view of the city was indescribable.
--Toured the Louvre, including the Mona Lisa and Venus De Milo among many other wonderful works of art
--Visited the museums of Orsay, Orangerie and Modern Art
--Visited Notre Dame, Sacre-Coeur, Sainte-Chappelle among the churches/basilicas
--Side trip to Brugge, Belgium where I went on a boat tour and bought some of their famous chocolates!
--Side trip to St. Michel, in the northern part of France which dated back as far as 900 AD
--Enjoyed their food, especially the desserts
I didn't go alone, but with a cousin where we stayed at the hotel for 10 nights and helped me along when I couldn't understand the French. I had nothing but good experiences, though it was a lot of walking, so much that I needed a foot bath and some of the tours were fast paced. I may post some of the photos, but since this is an art site I will keep it to a minimum. Maybe I'll digi-manipulate them with Sparks or other creatures.
I learned so much about the art and the artists during the museum tours; it has opened my eyes to the artwork centuries old and the techniques they used. I found most of the Parisians to be friendly and nice, so long as you learn to say "Bonjour" and "Sil Vous Plait" you will do fine if you visit there. I knew just enough French to get by but next time I intend on having learned a bit more.
I'm still hungover from all the excitement that I plan on taking it easy today. I don't intend on opening commissions until November at least, as I need to catch up and I'll be revising my to-do list as I developed a greater appreciation of art from the trip.
