Most Thursdays I don’t technically start work until 5:15pm so I have most of the day to explore. My inventive name of ‘Travel Thursdays’ is to motivate me to see some places outside of Paris each Thursday. Last week I ventured off to Saint Germain en Laye. I didn’t really have a real reason to go but had heard a few people mention it so thought ‘why the heeeelll not?’.
It took me over an hour because train delays follow me wherever I go but I think it should’ve taken about 25 minutes. There’s loads of history regarding the town; James II, Henry IV and Napoleon had some lols there but I’m not guna bore you with facts. Wikipedia will tell you all you need to know!
The gardens were really pretty and the shops in the centre of town were crazy expensive. I’d definitely go back if I was rich or if it was rrreeeaaallly sunny and I wanted a picnic with some fab scenery.
