Fontainebleu. . . then Paris!

The second leg of our trip took us to Paris but we immediately got on the train to Fontainebleu.   It is a quaint village and the chateau is fabulous.  Our day there was drizzly but still wonderful.


Of the many chamber rooms inside there was one that was set up for the queen to give birth.  It was required that she give birth in front of witnesses so that the heir would be "verified". 


The doors to the chamber were painted with these beautiful pregnant ladies.  After a wonderful day and evening in Fontaineblue we headed into Paris!


I missed all the big flea markets over the weekend, but when we set out on our first day, Tuesday, I did find a few vendors at the farmer’s market.  But no treasures were to be found!


This quaint street is where our hotel was located.  So french!


Oh yeah, I was having fun!


Our hotel was only blocks from the Eiffel Tower and we went there every night!  So romantic!

  3. I am reliving our trip to Paris thru you.It was romantic…we loved the Eiffel Tower…were terrified by the drivers…and also did not find treasures at the flea markets…but ooooh the sidewalk cafes, the architecture and the art.
