If It’s Thursday, It Must be Versailles

If you’ve traveled through France you’ve probably gone to the city of Versailles, where – notably – one can find the Palace of King Louis XIV. If you have any interest in seeing opulence taken to a level beyond itself, welcome. I have many (many) pictures of the palace’s interior and exterior for two reasons: 1. Because no restriction was placed on me and, 2. Because most everything I saw felt worthy of a photo. As a picture is worth a thousand words, let me share some of them:

In Versailles, we also drove around the home and gardens of Marie Antoinette,  small in comparison to the palace, but in America it could house the likes of a small city.

Upon returning to Paris late afternoon, we took a leisurely stroll down The Champs Elysees, just to say we did. We had dinner at a local restaurant with friends from the States who now live in Paris. The day ends warmly with wine, friendship and good food.
