Final Day In Paris!

Our last day in Paris, like our last day in London, was overcast and a little rainy. We woke up early and got on the train to Versailles. We got right in and spent almost three hours touring the castle, wondering the gardens, and eating in the town of Versailles. The castle is enormous, but why someone would need a house that big is beyond us! After we got back to Paris, we rested for a bit and then went to the Museum d’Orsay. We really enjoyed this museum. It had works from Monet, Van Gogh, Dali and other famous painters that Ashley knows but I could not name for the life of me. The sculptures at this museum were especially impressive. After the museum, we took the long way home (this is code for getting very lost!) and on the way realized how hungry we were. We got a baguette and ate in the Luxembourg Gardens. Then we did a little shopping in the Latin Quarter and now we are back at our hotel completely exhausted. We have to shout out the Hotel des 3 colleges for its most amazing shower in the world…seriously, the water pressure and heating abilities are unmatched. That is all for today, but below is a recap of things that we have learned to love and not-love in Paris.
Our Hotel
Everyone speaks English
The band at the top of Montmartre
Dana, our tour guide

Do Not Love:
Amazing clothes, but too expensive to buy
Getting lost in Versailles
The calories from Baguettes
Getting kicked out of Sacre Coeur for our shorts
Restaurant food/prices
Hotel Internet

Overall though, we loved so many more things in Paris than we did not love. Paris is an absolutely amazing city! We are sad to leave and can’t wait to come back! Early morning flight tomorrow and then 1 day in Venice. See you soon bloggerville. -- J&A
