Jillian here. My son and I had a wonderful trip to France(for the most part) but I came home with a horrible cold/cough. I’m feeling better now but it was a tough week or so after I got home since I still had the day job obligations as well as all the digging out from being away. Sometimes what I come home to makes me wonder if it was worth going at all but then that passes pretty quickly. LOL
I have a few photos to share. I won’t go overboard since I took close to 500. I was shocked (in a nice way) about the number of carousels I saw in Paris and the surrounding area. I was also pleased to see how the city likes to set up places for the children to play and enjoy themselves. I think that’s awesome.
I couldn’t resist the picture of the mime checking his text messages. You know they can’t call and chat, right? LOL
We visited a lot of museums and I can say with no trouble that the only place I truly didn’t enjoy was Versailles. It was ridiculously overcrowded. We could not move in the place and people were pushing and shoving. I swear 55 people tried at one time to get through one doorway at one point. I told my son I was done and would buy the book. He said, “You’re over it, huh?” AND that summed it up. I was glad we’d gone to Fontainebleau the day before. Much more enjoyable as I could actually see the rooms and the furnishings. I don’t recommend Versailles at all.
