Palace of Versailles

Our recent trip to Paris was not going to be complete without a side trip to Versailles. Growing up, instead of being read the usual children’s bedtime storybooks, I forced my parent’s to read me biographies and diaries of royalty from an era long ago. The tales filled the mind of a strange little girl with images of extravagance, power, and beauty that to me, was the real fairytale. My absolute favourite of all them was the diary of Marie Antoinette. The recollections of a woman made infamous by the words “Let Them Eat Cake” during her time spent in the Château de Versailles were so intriguing that I knew from a very young age that one day I would see the palace for myself. And it did not disappoint.
