Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

~ Thomas Merton

. . . a very favourite thing to do while travelling {or anytime, really}, is to while away endless beautiful hours wandering the echoing halls of museums and art galleries, breathing in the history and marveling at each brush stoke — monet, renoir, pissaro and degas — so much so, that once even braved the crowds of tourists at the louvre in paris one winter’s day, even catching a mesmerising glimpse of mona lisa‘s mysterious smile . . . there is just something so magical about being enveloped in such stunning creativity . . .

{p.s.} a favourite is the musée d’orsay
