The palace was incredible, it was ridiculously lavish and extravagant. The hall of mirrors, Marie Antoinette's bedroom being both highlights and things that lived up to expectation. The ceiling on the chapel in the photo above is incredible! The photos really speak for themselves.
In other news I have a fair amount of work at the moment, it's getting to the sticky end of the academic year. I have been a little distracted from regular blogging but c'est la vie! I have lots more photos of lovely places to share though, maybe I should share some more of my adventures in Ireland too! I've been to a fair few places in Ireland now actually and I've also been to Belgium and Edinburgh. (I loved Edinburgh but more on that later!) This has been quite a busy semester, the thought of people leaving all too soon is rather sad! I have not spoken much about my day to day life, living arrangements...I live in an apartment on campus with three lovely Irish girls if anyone wants to know. In Melbourne I just live at home with my parents as I'm not too far from uni, but I can confirm that living on campus has been great craic! ;)
I'm not going to dwell on the end of the exchange part of my journey, I'll worry about that when it happens! I am not going home till 22nd July when I fly out of Madrid, so I have quite a lot of travelling yet to do! I think my first port of call will be Vienna as I have some friends I can visit.
Obligatory mirror selfie with my fellow country-woman! (Mirror selfies being my favourite thing)
