walking to the castle...
After a fun ride - these guys were hilarious - we arrived to Versailles. Versailles is a really nice town. Everything looks so lovely! We kept on walking and arrived to the Castle. Unfortunately, we had to split. I was able to take my time, but they had to go back to Paris soon. The line was really long!!! You just have to listen to the speakers. They will let you know which line to do, according what you want to visit.

 

I visited the castle, how luxurious! Amazing! You can feel yourself as part of the royalty. All the furniture, art pieces, decoration, everything was so beautiful... ;)

Now, I wanted to go outdoors.

at the main entrance in the castle
It was spring and the garden was so colorful. All the flowers were blossoming and the day was sunny, but not too hot. It was perfect!

The gardens are huge! I was walking happily following the map, taking pics. But I got lost…

 

I saw a group of people and followed them. One of the girls noticed it and turned around. I apologized and explained her that I was lost. She just started laughing. They were lost either, hahaha. The funniest thing was that one of they guys in the group was from Paris :P After walking a bit, we found our way back. They were staying in Versailles, so I said goodbye and went to the station in order to go back to Paris. I could hardly wait to go to a nice hostel and find a nice bed, hahaha.

 

I arrived to the hostel, took a shower and dressed my pj’s.

I went downstairs to talk with the man at the front desk. A guy was checking in. I saw he had a bag and noticed that bag must be from South America. I couldn't help it and asked him in Spanish where he was from and he was from Ecuador! He was happy about talking in Spanish after a while. He wanted to buy some water and I let him now there was a grocery store in the corner. He asked me to join him. What? I’m wearing pj’s… well, they didn’t look like pj’s, but… Hey! I was in Paris, nobody knew me and maybe they won’t even see me again in their whole lives, so let’s go shopping wearing pj’s hahaha. Things you do, only when you are traveling ;)

 

We were hanging out in the lobby and decided to meet at the lobby the next morning. Time to go to sleep. The dorm was for 6 ppl, but we were only 2 girls there, yay!
