My Journeys: Summer 2003 and Winter 2006
I visited Paris and Versailles on a tour of Europe before I studied abroad in London, England.  The Eiffel Tower, Notre
Dame, and the Louvre are all lovely, but my favorite part of the trip was taking a train out to the Palace of Versailles.  King Louis XIV poured French tax dollars into building this ridiculously fancy palace, gardens, and fountains.  The cost bankrupted the government and arguably lead to the French Revolution.

Ask me what foie gras and escargot taste like.
Ask me how big the Mona Lisa really is.
