I can only imagine what it must have been like, in its heyday, to visit the Chateau de Versailles during the summer, when the gardens are in bloom and the golden gates glitter in the sunlight. The trip to Versailles more closely ressembles a mob scene than anything glamourous these days... we rode the train out to Versailles on Sunday and were greeted by a wall of people; we could see them from the train station several blocks away, before the palace was even discernable in the distance! I admit that I felt rather overdressed in my new Dex dress and heels among the sea of zip-off shorts and backpacks, which partly explains why we decided to skip the chateau and visit the town of Versailles, instead. Just a few blocks from the castle, we found ourselves on an empty, quiet street... the perfect place for an unplanned Sunday stroll!
