I’ve just returned from a short trip to Paris by train. Conveniently trains from Leicester pull up at St Pancras next to the Eurostar so there was no dashing across London. Very civilised. As we didn’t have much in the way of luggage we walked from the Gare du Nord to our hotel in nearby Montmartre. Less hassle than flying.

The threatened rain didn’t materialise so we had a great day out at Versailles. The place is very photogenic and it’s hard to take a bad photo. The biggest problem is large tour groups getting in the way especially inside and I ended up taking pictures of the ceilings. Here’s a small sample.


  1. How lovely, and you make it sound so very easy to get there too. I love the trains! :-) Some very nice captures, I want to go now.

  2. Have always wanted to go to Paris. A dream vacation!
