TRAVEL: Exploring the Gardens of Versailles
My family and I just got back from an amazing trip to beautiful Paris, France. For one week, we spoiled ourselves rotten with countless croissants, amazing architecture, and shameless shopping sprees. As much as I loved the Parisian city, however, the highlight of the trip for me was definitely our day trip to Versailles.
My breath was stolen by the views offered at the beautiful Gardens of Versailles. Acres upon acres of manicured natural beauty stretched out before us. Within the gardens lies my favorite spot: The Queen's Hamlet, located at Marie Antoinette's estate. The miniture village transports you back to a rustic French village in the 1700's, complete with a small windmill and picturesque cottages. I could literally spend the day lounging at the garden.
