My parents got married young, and immediately started having kids! My brothers and I kept them so busy that in a lot of ways they didn’t get much time to see the world and “do their own thing.” I’ve spent the adult years of my life very much “doing my own thing,” traveling, learning, searching, exploring.... Right now my mom is on her very first trip to Europe, and this is one of the photos she texted me of her day at the Palace of Versailles. If you look closely, you can see a beautiful rainbow in the light. I can’t help but feel like my grandmother is there with her in the spirit, exploring and adventuring away...
Really excited to tour the gardens, see the palace and am surprised by a firework and fountain show tonight!
I have the best husband ever. 😚😮💍

Charles Le Brun was a court painter to Louis XIV, who once declared him "the greatest French artist of all time.” Did you know that he was the one in charge of every artistic work done in the royal palace? Amazing!
Gloriosa Versailles! Palácio de Versalhes (Château de Versailles) é um castelo real localizado na cidade de Versalhes, uma aldeia rural à época de sua construção, mas atualmente um subúrbio de Paris.
Desde 1682, quando Luís XIV se mudou de Paris, até a família real ser forçada a voltar à capital em 1789, a Corte de Versalhes foi o centro do poder do Antigo Regime na França e continua até hoje refletindo aqueles momentos de poder e luxo.
Immersing ourselves in this unbreakable historic heaven, we are totally stunned with the artifacts in Versailles Palace. Hall of Mirrors, my favorite part of this heritage site, reflects Louis XIV’s daily life and his glorious history. This knowledgeable day trip indeed enriches our traveling experiences. It’s also our great pleasure to witness French revolution. 🙂

Je vous emmène en balade à la découverte des Grandes Eaux Nocturnes du Château de Versailles. Bien sûr, on ne découvre pas tout car finalement deux heures avant de s'asseoir pour le feu, ça passe en un éclair tellement c'est magique.
Perso je n'ai pas pris de plan pour me laisser emporter dans la découverte mais à chaque détour, c'est la surprise et l'émerveillement. Je me suis perdue (again) mais la magie, la musique et l'ambiance étaient au top. Hâte de revenir découvrir tout ceux que je n'ai pas pu prendre en photo. Laquelle vous plaît les amis ?
Come with me and let's discover the Night Fountain Shows of the Palace of Versailles. Of course, we don't see everything because two hours before seating down for the firework fly by so much it's magic.
As for me, I didn't take pictures because I wanted to be surprised and amazed all the time. I got lost (again) but the magic, the music and the atmosphere were amazing. I can't wait to come back and discover all I couldn't take pictures of.
