Been There, Do This: Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris

Been There, Do This: Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris

I can actually pinpoint the start of my love affair with surrealist art. Like any great meet-cute, it began at a museum — Paris’ Centre Georges Pompidou, the largest modern art museum in Europe.

Been There, Do This: The Wallace Collection in London

On a recent whirlwind trip through London, a brief stop at The Wallace Collection had me momentarily awestruck. Secretly a fan of ornate, dainty treasures (I will squeal over cute teacups any day of the week), I felt as if I had stepped inside the world’s fanciest life-size dollhouse.

A stubby brick wall was the only thing between me and a plunge into the depths of this hellish hole, in which locals say you can see glowing lava on certain nights.
