Versailles – What were they thinking? (Day 2)

Chateau De Versailles… No pictures or words can describe it. You simply need to experience this place for yourself! I got frustrated taking photos as they just couldn’t capture it’s magnitude and beauty! The Chateau and it’s history are so overwhelming that one cannot take it all in with even a full days visit. You’ve got to admire the French!

Our day started out early (up at 6:00am), but still managed a close call in not making it to our 9:30am English tour of the Private Apartments and the Royal Opera. A long story, but a happy ending as we soon discovered it was a tour not to be missed! After the 2Hr tour we got a chance to eat our breakfast we had purchased earlier (Plain and Chocolate & Almond Croissants). This was now lunch (Delicious!). After enjoying the Gardens… Gardens? Do you call that a garden? We hired bikes for the afternoon so we could cover more ground, including a visit of Marie-Antoinette’s private Chateau. Smaller? Yes, but still expressive in its own right! With it’s own beautiful gardens!

We caught the 5:00pm train back. This included catching 3 different trains. RER C, RER B and Metro L1. This sounds complicated, but we do have a good personal travel consultant back home giving us all the good oil which has paid off, not to mention the excellent signage that they have here!

Now I’ve got to wake Jenny up so we can go out for dinner. Restaurant booked for 8:30! Oh no! It’s an 8 o’clock booking!
