On Tuesday, we took the train out to Chartes, to see one of the most famous cathedrals in the world. The two spires - one Gothic and one Romanesque, make it quite famous. But the true beauty is the stunning stained glass - the shade of blue that makes Chartes famous.
It was a bitterly cold day - and we definitely did not manage to make an entire day of the trip. The train ride was a pit pricey, but worth the once in a lifetime opportunity to see a cathedral of such stunning beauty.
We did get a couple of gaps of clearer skies for some beautiful sights, but much of the time, we were burying our noses in our coats to keep warm. These tropical babies are definitely not used to winter!
