|A closed station|
Since I had not been to Versailles, I figured it might be worth a visit. I read online that you really should be there very early or you will have to stand in line for hours just to get in, especially during the tourist peak season (which is now).

Since I had severe jet-lag and kept waking up extremely early in the morning (afternoon time in Japan), that would not be a problem, I thought. I walked to the train station close to my hotel where I had got off the evening before when coming for the airport. The hotel was conveniently located close to a station that had both the line that goes to the airport and the line that goes to Versailles. From the day after I arrived until about a month later, it turned out that this station was going to be closed, though.
I figured it could not be that far to the next station and started walking in that direction. I was wrong, and it was actually a long walk. Once I got there, there was a similar notice stating that this station too was closed from today and a few weeks on... So I walked to the next station down the line, and ended up walking for more than an hour (and I walk pretty fast, haha).
