Bon Jour!

Well this is the first chance I've had to sit down and write a blog post, little or no interwebs makes Cathy a cranky girl. But I can't complain too much, I'm sitting in a Maccas in Versaille! We had a lovely day walking around the palace, we had lunch in the gardens, then hopped onto a mini train thingy to have a look at the gardens further out and at Marie-Antoinette's 'mini' house. Very stately and not quite so ever the top as the palace.

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the Louvre, which was quite busy, as it's school holidays in Paris atm, but I mananged to see a tiny bit of it! There was the bone crushing visit to see Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. I only managed to walk through the galleries with the Spanish and Italian paintings, I saw a little bit of Egyptian statues, but the exhibit I wanted to see didn't start until the next day. I've got some great photos, but I'll have to wait to post them, as I need to buy a card reader, but trust me - there shall be photo's, oh yes there shall.

The night before that we visited Le Tour Eiffel, which I'm with SJP on this one, looks lovely lit up and we managed to time it right so we saw it all sparkly (nobody told me it was a Cullen!), but it was good to see it at night, as last year Asha and I saw it during the day.

Hopefully we get to visit Monet's gardens tomorrow, and if we have time pick up some tappas!! Fingers crossed it won't be too long before I get to post again, but until then stay classy Australia :)
