Let Them Eat Cake

No trip to Paris would be complete without a trip to Marie Antoinette’s beautiful palatial home, Versailles.

Getting to Versailles should be a relatively simple endeavor from Paris, however, due to some Metro closures, we had to take some roundabout ways to get there.  Thankfully, we met a very kind Metro worker who helped map out a route, and off we went.  At one point we got a tiny bit turned around, but we ran into a kind Frenchwoman in the Train station who approached us asking if she could help point us in the right direction.  All in all, it took us about an hour to make it to Versailles.  Once we arrived off the train, it was about a 15 minute walk to the palace through the quaint town (with a stop at a yummy French patisserie).

Everything in the palace is so intricate, detailed, and matching.  Yes, matching.  We discussed which bedrooms we would like to move into, if we were given the opportunity.  It was simply gorgeous.

Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful, stunning places I have seen or been would be the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles.  It is absolutely gorgeousdscn1545

The Gardens of Versailles are beautiful and expansive– you could get lost in those gardens.
