Paris Photo Diary: Part 5

 photo IMG_4976.jpg

On Sunday Katie and I ventured to Versailles, which is usually quite easy to get to on the metro. However, some train lines were closed that day, so we had to take quite a significant detour which was a bit of an adventure! We got there in the end though, but before we could do any exploring, we simply had to stop for something to eat. I had possibly the best salad of my life at this little pub, it was absolutely humongous. Ugh, I miss french food.

Versailles was beautiful and huge, as expected. Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to see the grounds and buildings in it’s entirety due to getting there in afternoon, but we were able to see pretty much all of the Palace, which was the most important part.

The Château de Versailles was so decadent, it really was hard to take in all at once. Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette is one of my all-time favourite movies, so being there was something I have dreamt about for years.

This photo was taken just as the woman behind the counter told me not to take photos. Gotcha!

We stayed until close and it started to rain just as we were leaving.

We indulged in le Big Mac for dinner, I appreciated the carry-takeaway bags and being able to order on a machine instead of at the counter!

The next day we headed back into Paris for one final look at the shops and finally found Ladurée Champs-Élysées, which we’d been keeping an eye out for every time we were in the city. It was magical on the inside, I wish I could’ve taken photos in there.

After our Laduree expedition, we hurried back to our Paris apartment to quickly gather our things and head to the airport. London was beckoning!

Until next time!

    Ugh I miss French food too. Your pics of Versailles’ interior are great. I also love the gardens in Versailles. In the summer they do something called the ‘musical gardens’ where they have classical music playing throughout the park as well as a musical fountain show. It’s magical! Ok, I’m home sick now -)
