Picnic in Versailles

On Thursday, it was a local holiday therefore since baba was off work, we decided to head to Versailles and have a picnic by the bank of the Grand Canal before dragging my parents around the château. It was so busy, full of families, friends and tourists all sitting having picnics, dipping their feet in the canal as well as cyclists and those who hired rowing boats up and down the canal. We made our own little sandwiches, baguettes of course, and sat munching and taking photos of my surroundings, as well as my dad snoring & me lying on my dad’s legs :P

All in all, we spent nearly 7 hours in Versailles and I loved the place. Will post more about the château tomorrow as I have over 100 pictures that I need to choose from lol. I’ll leave you now with some picnic photos :D
