Honeymoon: Paris Part 2

On our second full day in Paris we decided to take the train to Versailles and tour the Palace of Versailles. It was a surprisingly easy place to reach. The train drops you off about 2 blocks from the Palace. Words don't really do it justice. My pictures don't do it justice either but here you go....

The flowers in early spring.

This is the Queen's Hamlet. A nice little place for the kids to play.....

I was in love with all of the daffodils! They were beautiful and they were everywhere in Paris and London!

In the low season the gardens are free so people would be jogging, dog walking, bike riding and leisurely reading the news paper in the gardens. How fun!

We had such a lovely time on our Honeymoon!

Some observations from the trip:

There were many more panhandlers in Paris than I've seen anywhere else. It was amazing how many people found gold rings around us and randomly walked up to us trying to block our way asking us in a French accent if we speak English.

We did not find the rumor of the super rude French to be true at all. Everyone we dealt with were kind and friendly.

Museums are free in London, churches are not (the famous ones at least).

France has great Pizza!

Chips as in Fish n Chips are best from a Fish n Chips shop. Real chips are not the same as fries.

Unless you are at a fancy hotel, your Continental breakfasts are probably not very good in London or in Paris. Luckily in Paris there are pastries on every corner it seems.

London's public transportation is very expensive but it's easy to use. Paris's is cheaper and just as easy to get around with.

London was a much trendier place fashion wise.The Parisians had a much simpler style.

I packed lighter than I ever have and wore everything! It's a first!

So did I miss anything big?

Anyone been to Paris and London? Which did you like more?
