After a morning of laundry, (which yes happens while on vacation, way more often then I like: a downside to having carry on luggage only) I took a train to the city of Versaille. Took just a little over 2 hrs from my hostel with transfers. I easily found the studio flat that I rented off Airbnb, and found Versaille to have a much more small town feeling. I walked around a bit and enjoyed dinner despite having no one that spoke English or an English menu…. ended up with Salmon Tartar, so its a good thing Sashimi is one of my favourite foods! It was slightly different though with a light sauce on it.

It’s today! It’s today! eeek! So excited to see the Palace or Chateau Versaille today! I first learned about the palace in Mr. Overlands Grade 10 history class! (Despite popular opinion, I did attend classes in high school, just not accounting class!) I have wanted to see it ever since! The palace was built first as a hunting chateaux and was continually added onto by future Kings of France, and is where the infamous Marie Antoinette lived. The palace, its apartments and gardens cover over 700 000 Sqft! Here are the pic’s!

Nice sleep in and relaxing travel days! I decided to head to Beauvais where my flight to Slovakia is from because its a couple of different trains and didn’t want to risk missing a flight tomorrow. Got in to the room late afternoon and did very little. Flight to Slovakia and finding hostel was surprisingly easy even with the language barrier. Hello Bratislava!
