Day 6: Versailles
After visiting Marie Antoinette’s village I wandered back towards Versailles to catch one more view of the grounds before it closed for the day. People were hanging out on the steps, running through the gardens and lounging in front of the massive reflecting pools. It was amazing to see a place, that was once reserved for only the very rich, opened up to the general public like a massive park.
After leaving the palace I wandered into the actual town of Versailles, stopping at some local boutiques and antique shops. I found one particular Antique shop that I really loved, and I ended up buying a beautiful old Victorian sterling charm that is quite odd and magical (but that is a story for another day). The rest of the evening I spent wandering through the tiny streets, walking past endless restaurants and tiny fruit stands, and eventually walked to their local cathedral in the town square. From there I wandered back to the station and caught a train back to reality.
