2011 Hogarths on the move again - to places afar travel blog


Up early and on the subway with our entire luggage to Porte de Saint-Cloud. Here I purchase yet another car – this time a Citroen C8. In five minutes all the papers are signed – an inspection of the car – load the luggage – fill up with fuel and we are on our way.

Our first stop Versailles – the palace there of. Surprising easy to get a park, then tickets and then, eventually we find the correct entrance.

Quite impressive although some of the rooms are not fully furnished. Apparently a lot of the furniture was sold off after the French Revolution and they are still, to this day, repurchasing original furniture whenever it comes on the market.

Really impressed with the grounds and the gardens.

A long way to go today so we make our way back to Louis and we learn to set our sat nav – now called Charlie. We make our way to Fontenay Le Comte and our hotel, arriving around 9pm.

A quick meal at the hotel restaurant and it is lights out.
