France, May 2017: Paris & Versailles Video Moments

Our latest trip took us to Paris & Versailles. We had never seen Paris so lush and in bloom so being there in the Spring walking around felt extra magical this time around. It was a beautiful weekend (minus some random downpours) and we fell even further in love with the city. It's funny to go from such a neutral feeling from our first ever visit to an obsession now after our numerous trips.

France, May 2017: A Spring Day Trip From Paris to Versailles

Versailles has seen its fair share of history. Originally built in 1623 as a hunting lodge for Louis XIII, in its 400-year history it’s seen opulent expansion, mobs of angry crowds during the French Revolution, and the signing of the treaty that bears its name and brought an end to World War I. Today the palace is a popular tourist attraction and the city of Versailles is an affluent suburb of Paris.

France, May 2017: A Spring Weekend In Paris

Our November visit to Paris reminded us to not take the city’s close proximity for granted and we promised then to return in the spring. Keeping the promise we made to ourselves, we hopped on the Eurostar for a quick 2-day visit. We had two goals: explore more of the neighborhoods we love most and visit Versailles for the first time. We’ll cover our time in Paris here and then will present Versailles in another post.
