Took a day trip from Paris to the Palace of Versailles this fine day while my boyfriend visited me in France.
Admission is free if you present your student visa to prove that you’re a student studying in the EU. Audio guide is also free so be sure to grab it!
The Palace of Versailles is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Off we went on this hinterland of Versailles, into the depths of the gardens.
Midway through visiting the Palace and the gardens, we were very fortunate to visit Pauline, who lives close by! We’ve come a long way, from Singapore to France. She took a study abroad semester in my university in Singapore, and that’s where I met her.
Looking back to a semester ago, I still can’t believe she’s back in her homeland and how much our roles have reversed, from me showing her the places in Asia to her inviting me to her place in France.
Her house is massive! Pardon me for overreacting but it was the first time I saw a wine cellar in a form of a fridge!
Thank you Pauline for the specially prepared French meal and cheese-tasting. I will miss you and I hope that someday the East and the West will meet again. 🙂
