Bonjour Tout le monde

Bonjour Tout le Monde,
I am back for Paris! I had a lovely time with my family exploring Paris. First thing we did when the train docked was scope out crepes! I think we must of had 1-2 crepes per person each day! So once we checked into our hotel room, we headed down to a cute little place called Pomme Rouge and indulged ourselves in crepes. We then took the metro and went for a little stroll to see the magnificent Tour de Eiffel all lit up. We then rode a carousel and just mosied around. The next morning we went to the Eiffel Tour to actually go up and due to the weather you weren't allowed to go to the top nor could you walk up. So I was a little disappointed but I didn't let it ruin my day. In total we saw the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysee, Arc du Triomphe, Notre Dame, and the Seine River. Then we spent the whole next day in Versailles which is absolutely phenomenal! I loved it! All the history and the rooms and the beautiful grounds! I plan to go back in the spring do I can see Marie Antoinette's Hamlet. That's closed during the winter hours. Then we made our way to a cute little area of Paris called Monmontre and it has one of the most amazing churches ever, and even better view of Paris and tonnes of cute little shops and eateries. I loved Paris and cannot wait to go back in the spring time!


  1. Did you love the Hall of Mirrors? Did you feel the magic of the end of the war as you pranced from the room of war to the room of peace? Or was that just me?

    My favourite part of the Palace was, oddly, the marble stairs - I loved that the marble had actually worn away a little bit from the years and years of footsteps. I just imagined all the people who had walked on those stairs... and pretended to be them.

    Versailles also has one of two versions of my favourite painting ever - the crowning of Josephine (where Napoleon is lifting the crown over her head.

    I might just move in there someday. I'm sure the French people would be honoured to have me as a permanent resident of the Palace.

  2. haha oh Empress! I loved Versaille such a magical place. And even though it was January my fav was the gardens. The tenderness and care that goes into them! But the Hall of mirrors did top the trip off perfectly! I definately think you should move in because you'll be closer to me then!
