Wandering Europe: Versailles and Switzerland

From our beautiful stay at the Manior de Malvoisine, my wife and I took the train to the Palace of Versailles. We wandered around the beautiful and lavish palace and then walked through the maze of gardens. We were in awe of the extravagance that the French royalty lived in and really enjoyed the buildings and grounds. After Versailles, we boarded a train for Switzerland. In our planning, Switzerland had been a bit of an afterthought and we had not really expected much from our day and half there. We split our time between the two cities of Bern and Luzern, and spent a great amount of time just walking the streets and seeing the exquisite architecture. Again, the pictures do a better job explaining then my words. Enjoy.
