La Ville et La Palais de Versailles / Photo Diary

Where: the town and Palace of Versailles - the once swampy hunting lodge turned chateau by Louis XIV the "Sun King" of France - a mere 15 miles outside the heart of Paris

What: exploring the quaint town, lunching in the gardens of the palace on warm baguettes, fine cheeses, and the freshest strawberries and raspberries, zipping around the beautiful Grand Canal via golf carts (it was way way way to hot to walk), and lusting over the grandeur of the interior of the chateau

stay tuned for (a lot) more recaps of my adventure en France!
