I admit, I have sort of had a hankering to visit Paris for the past couple weeks. So today, when we left Nevers and headed out to Paris, I definitely got excited and am looking forward to visiting the Louvre, Notre-Dame, and of course the Palace of Versailles! If we have time I want to go to the catacombs of Paris, too!
It might just be me, but it seems a lot more green and lush here than it did just a few hours ago, when we were in Nevers. I guess it's further from the Mediterranean, so that might have something to do with it. We don't do any sightseeing today, just get ourselves checked in the hotel and find a place to eat. Of course Uncle D and Aunty L have been here before, so they know where it is that we will get dinner already. That suits us fine, because we'll need to catch up on some sleep to take on the day tomorrow! We aren't staying in Paris itself, but we are actually staying in Versailles, only a block or so from the Palace. We even saw it when we pulled up to the hotel!
It rained as we were on the road, too! That was kind of nice.
