Train to the suburb of Versailles - we navigated the metro with the intent of getting the train to Versailles. Everything went well on our trip to the palace. We got aboard and made it to our destination without incident.
Once we pulled in Versailles, we took a right upon exiting the train and walked a little ways before an abrupt left. Ahead u in the distance was the Palace of Versailles. One could see the golden gate that greeted visitors and anticipated a great experience. The line was long as we entered, so we took our place in it. There were children, groups, and what appeared to be school classes in addition to all the tourists from every country imaginable. The line moved quickly and soon were entering the Palace of Versailles. Every room was opulent an luxurious. The gardens were massive. Videos were shown full size on many walls help you become familiar with the grounds and many rooms and buildings. Opulence, luxury, self aggrandizement, and riches were displayed everywhere.
After the tour, linda made a phone call and we learned the LDS Paris temple was not far away, so we walked there. The temple was not open but preparing for the open house to begin shortly. It was a press day. We explained who we were and where we had come from to see the temple, and they allowed us to walk around the grounds and take pictures. A kind sister took our pictures and told us about the temple construction. As we were leaving the temple brethren gave us some mementos...cards of the Paris France temple. When complete we returned to the train with our next event in store.
River cruise floated down the Seine river and circled around the Notre Dame cathedral. It was massive and ornate. We waved at the boat that sauntered by. It felt like we walked 600 miles's or something.
We stopped for lunch and later had dinner of crepes and gelato. It was all marvelous. More train videos
