Setting off early for me first day in Europe I decided to visit the Chateau De Versailles. The wealth of the place is unbelievable, it’s no wonder Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette were taken from this place by the France poor.
I followed this up with a visit to the Eiffel Tower, that international symbol on Paris. I chose to jump the 668 steps to the second level and the views were spectacular. Having said that seeing heavily armed military forces walking around did not put me at ease!
