What a delightful way to finish off our time in Paris and France.
Despite a few early hiccups, we had a wonderful day in the garden that inspired many of Monet's most famous paintings.
As we mentioned in yesterday's entry we had pre-purchased our train ticket so we set the alarm and made it to the station in time for a 7.50 departure. The trip takes about an hour, Giverny being north west of Paris. We found our platform and train and settled ...

The cities are built around these grand cathedrals that the peoples lives revolved completely around. It is impossible to find a spot where you can not find ...
