Versailles

Getting a bit behind in posting! The morning we left London Neve woke with a pretty high fever and cough.

We thankfully stayed with an old friend from college in Versailles for two nights; but our hectic pace was dramatically slowed for our time in France, and Neve spent much of it in bed.

Maddie and I wandered the village of Versailles a bit (and loved it) before touring the palace itself. I even made Maddie try a Croque Monsieur for the sake of stereotypical French cuisine.

We finished the day with dinner at a creperie with Aurelie and her boyfriend Paul. I tried the goat cheese and tomato crepe; absolutely divine. For dessert: chestnut crepe. Add in the French wine and it was heaven!

It it was a lovely, lovely village, and if pressed, I may admit to having liked it better than Paris itself. (But don’t tell anyone).
