Bonjour France! The Chateau de Fontainebleau Paris

En route to the French countryside, wine country. Stopping for a quick latte and a visit Chateau de Fontainebleau. One of the largest French royal chateaux and home to Louis V11 through to Napoleon 111! But my personal favourite, home to Lana Del Rey's Born to Die video. How cool is that (very cool F.Y.I.).











At long last we made it to our own countryside chateau! Where we were greeted with home grown wine and cheese. But can we please talk about the view from our bunk-bed ridden room? I for one could share a bunk-bed for eternity if this is what I woke up to. Granted I was on the top bunk that is.


Contiki set up a party for us in what they liked to call "The Cave." More so of a hole dug underneath the chateau used to throw the 52 of us in our drunken stupor so we wouldn't disturb surrounding neighbours. I for one quite enjoyed myself regardless of the medieval chamber-esk appearance. Contiki's Cave should definitely be one of France's tourist destinations.
