Today, I went to the Gardens at the Palace of Versailles. It took about an hour and forty minutes to get there from our hotel, but it went fast. I met two women from Canada, one of which now lives in Switzerland, so we spoke for about a half hour.
When we arrived at Versailles, I split up from my group because they went to the Palace, which I saw last time I was in Paris, and I wanted to visit the Gardens which I did not have a chance to see during my prior visit. It was very cloudy, but was still very impressive. I took a tram around the gardens because they were so big – 660 hectacres! It had a huge canal and lots of fountains as well.
Tonight, we leave for an overnight train to Rome. I can’t wait to return to my second home!
