For our stay in Paris, we were able to stay with a generous friend just outside of central Paris in Maisons-Laffitte, around the corner from Château de Maisons-Laffitte. We had quite a few things planned for our trip in Paris but after missing one of my most anticipated tour to Mont-Saint Michele, we were able to spend more quality time over some great french cuisine and wine with friends, so all in all, nothing was truly lost in that experience :)
I also made a new friend, a playful blue and green quaker parrot named Keda. If you know me, you’d also know that really don’t like birds (because hate is not a nice word) but with the help of Daisy and Guillaume, I even had it on my shoulder!
Another agenda item we were looking forward for in France was to take a bike trip around the gardens of Versailles with Fat Tire. It was an incredible experience riding through the breath-taking garden paths just soaking up everything around me. We also stopped by a marketplace before the trip with our tour group to stock up on wine, bread and charcuterie items for a picnic by the Grand Canal.
