Part way through our journey we stopped at the Palace of Fontainebleau, which is one of the largest French royal chateaux.
It is surrounded by 80 hectares of parkland and a small lake.
It was Sunday on the day we were there, so we were unable to go inside...
Not to mention looking at some of the more interesting outdoor decorations...
...and having a good laugh at this fountain.
Heading out of the palace grounds, we wandered a short ways up the street for some food.
More crepes, but this time with Nutella and banana. I'm really going to have to make this at home at some point. It was delicious!
Our drive continued through the French countryside...looking like something out of a painting. My through-the-bus-window pictures do not do it justice in the least.
Needless to say, the group was feeling a little bit "happier" after this, and not a single soul went to bed early...mostly because there was a party.
Now, I don't have any really good pictures of myself from this night. So I'll just post the one picture. This one ridiculous picture of our tour manager and driver. The theme of the party was "Freaks and Geeks."
