The Apartment Tour (Long Version)
 
09:56
Here's a longer tour of my apartment in Paris - something that has been requested frequently, but that I haven't done for some reason until now. I hope you enjoy every last second of it. It is a tiny apartment, to say the least, a chambre de bonne to be exact (although I guess the size can differ between them).

Doing so on a bike (in my opinion) is the best way to do it as you can cover way more ground and get a better overview of the entire estate. It's a massive territory to cover, one you won't want to do on foot. Tours of Versailles are worth it - but especially bike tours. Check out my latest video on that here: https://youtu.be/Um6kklXS_4o
