MY FIRST TRIP TO VERSAILLES



           As I am sure many of my friends could all attest to, I already act like a Queen so it’s fitting that I’ve finally found a place worthy of my habitation. You try palace shopping in this market; it’s exhausting!

 All terrible jokes aside Versailles is easily one of the most marvelous properties I’ve ever visited. From the famed Hall of Mirrors to the sheer vastness of the garden landscape (we nearly got lost out there multiple times), it’s well worth the 45-minute journey from central Paris.


What’s most impressive about the area is the laborious upkeep, which has been maintained over the years to ensure authenticity of the original decorations. One can easily imagine Marie Antoinette and her husband, Louis XVI, living in ample luxury as their peasant-subjects gained momentum elsewhere. I could almost picture the infamous Queen shouting her most quotable line, “Let them eat cake!” from her opulent bed in The Queen’s Chamber. It’s no wonder Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose to hold their pre-wedding festivities there.

So, as a queen it was good to be in Versailles! As you said, joke apart, I liked the pictures very much! I think the place is amazing and now, nearly summer, even better! It really shows the palace in all its glory and I really like the post!
