Winter travel in London and Paris is wonderful because it’s uncrowded, there’s no traffic to speak of and the cities are still in a festive holiday mood. The two big items on our itinerary today were the half-day city tour and the visit to Versailles, both with local guide Mario.
The pictures I’ve seen of the Hall of Mirrors don’t even come close to doing it justice! There is so much gilt, light, reflections of light, etc.
My “oh my gosh, pinch me—I’m in Paris!” picture.
Our shared plate of escargot at lunch. Everyone sampled, even one couple’s eight year old son.
