Mecredi à Paris

Today we went to the Palace of Versailles for a good look around.  I love history (so much so I studied it at University) so touristy things like this are often right up my street.  It was still lung clenchingly cold, and even though my ears hurt it was nice to be in the beginnings of a proper European winter.  I've missed it a little!





The palace is stunning as you approach it, and even more so inside.











We were a bit knackered by Wednesday, so on our way back from the palace we just picked up some food from a supermarket, wandered around Les Halles, stopped for another glass of kir and then had dinner together in our hotel room with a bottle of very dry, French wine.
