The Good Life

France is a country know for it’s “things luxurious” and there is no better example of this than the Palace of Versailles. Located on the outskirts of Paris one would find this beautiful château of châteaus which has over 700,000 square feet, 2.300 rooms and 2.100 windows.  And that’s just the main house.

So, the Chevrier’s and I took a trip to the gardens of Versailles since the last time I went in 2010, it was winter. We spent 7 hours, just exploring the fountains, flowers and the outside monstrosity. I loved it, but I can totally see why the Revolution was necessary. Versailles is an ultimate symbol of excess at a time when the have-nots, had nothing. However, the people eventually got their revenge in the form of putting the guillotine to Marie Antoinette’s head.

So, without further ado, I present to you, Versailles (or you can click here for the individual photos):
