travel bug… Versailles

If you are ever in Paris, one thing you must not miss is a day trip to the Palace of Versailles! My husband and I decided to be adventurous and take a bicycle tour of Versailles – it was absolutely amazing… not counting the 3 minor crashes I had. Getting on a bike for the fist time in 8 years in the middle of Paris might not have been the best idea. But I am so extremely glad we stuck with it. Once we arrived in Versailles (by train with bikes in tow) we rode through the gardens surrounding the palace, which covers 80,000 acres!! Since we were on bikes we were able to see parts of the garden that would have taken forever to get to on foot! They even had sheep roaming the fields. It was a little overcast but it made for some dramatic photos. Once we finished our tour of the gardens we went into the palace itself. The interior is covered with gold leaf and ornate decorations fit for a king… or a queen!

Alisa I Love the composition of these photos… especially the birds flying over the water with a canoe is the background. How did you make THAT happen? I think it’s time for me to have a new canvas for my home. : )

lindsay These are literally like something ripped from the movie screen. The overcast skies, dried leaves…they scream theater. I love reading this blog! It takes me away from my work computer 😀

Anne Amazing pictures, as always! They make me want to grab a coat and snuggle up on the couch!

pet portraits what a lovely place, but what’s that sheep doing there? do you mean that sheep used for cutting or eating grass?
