When Paris Became My Entrance Gate To Europe
We were confused for a while at the airport, because based on the direction that I got from the hostel, we had to take Air France Bus line 2 to Arc de Triomphe while the information guy asked us to go to the Le Bus Direct section. Finally the information lady told us if both were the same, after I went back and forth to the information desk for 3 times as if she had known that I needed an exercise in the morning after a long-distance flight. The ticket of Le Bus Direct can be bought from the auto-machine or paid directly to the driver. More information about the bus schedule and fare, you can visit: Le Bus Direct.
Musée Du Louvre
This large building complex is known as world’s largest museum and a historic monument. Unlike me, try to come and enjoy the night view here. The sky was blue as I had wished for but the wind was too strong that stopped us to go out at night.
Nearest Metro Station: Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre (Metro line 1 and 7).
This fine art museum is called Small Palace or Petit Palais and located just accross of Grand Palace. I got only 18-200mm lens so yeah, this was the best I could take. . . . #latepost #petitpalais #petitpalace #paris #France #d40x #wanderlust #historicalbuilding #historicalsite #3weeksineurope #17cityhopping

Château de Versailles
We left the hostel to Versailles by metro from the nearest metro station which was Courcelles and then continued by RER C, with total cost Eur 4.7 to Versailles Château. We went back to Paris by SNCF train with fare Eur 3.55 with duration around an hour.
So sad the Château deVersailles was closed yesterday. It was my dream when I was still on junior high school to visit the palace complex after reading Marie Antoinette’s manga and biography. Well I could only go around the grand garden in gloomy weather. It rained too before we left the complex. But this guy in 18th century attire had a lil bit charmed me, though. . . . #versailleschateau #france #europetrip #Franceyouowemethis #wanderlust
