château de versailles

Metro passYesterday we took three trains to get to Versailles.

We took a guided tour of the palace. The tour guide asked if I wanted to be a king or president and I said no. Parts of this place have been around since 1623 – almost 400 years!

I learned a lot about French history too. I learned that kings had several bedrooms and secret doors to their other bedrooms. Some bedrooms were just for people to watch the king wake up!

We took a snack break at Angelina’s before going out to the gardens.  The gardens are huge! Nearly 1000 acres! My mom rented a golf cart and drove us around.
