le château de Versailles
Today we traveled outside of Paris to explore Versailles. We got a park pass so we could explore everything!
The Palace is amazing, but the gardens are BY FAR my favorite part of this estate. I have been telling Duane for some time, that the last time I went, I wandered around the right side gardens for 8 hours. This was my attempt to explain how absolutely ginormous the grounds are. Well I failed. We were standing inside the château and he looked out the window and was aghast at the sheer size of what he could see. As we were walking around (we totaled 9 miles today) we were just in awe about what people could create with such imagination, thought, talent and with so little technology.
