So big I couldn’t even take a picture of the entire place….

This is another blog of mainly photos. Not many words are needed to describe the awesomeness of Versailles…

This was our final USAC stop before Paris. I buddied up with Vanessa throughout most of the castle. We did a hurried self-guided tour (We only had 3 hours to explore everything!). The castle was amazing, overwhelmingly huge, but we anticipated the gardens being even more awesome and rushed through it…

They did not disappoint!

We decided to rent bikes. Just walking to the rental kiosk took a ton of time!

We biked around the grounds for an hour and saw a farm Marie Antoinette had built, as well as her own house away from the castle.

I would love to go back to Versailles one day….if I ever do I’m renting a boat!

Just when we were leaving I got in touch with my buddy Charles from ECHS about having dinner in Paris that night. I love meeting old high school friends abroad! Discussing my stay in France with a French friend who spent 2 years in America was a great and surprisingly refreshing discussion…I’ll write about that soon…
