The Place of Versailles, France

" The Palace of Versailles might have had humble beginnings, but times have changed. Now, this ain't no simple hunting lodge, but rather an opulent tribute to the former French monarchy. Highlights include the reflective Hall of Mirrors, where world leaders met to sign the 1919 treaty that ended World War I; the manicured French-style gardens, which prominently feature the iconic Bassin d'Apollon (fountain) and the verdant Orangerie garden; and the Petit Trianon, a smaller chateau gifted to the infamous Marie Antoinette by her husband, King Louis XVI. Early summer is idyllic in the Île-de-France region, so plan your sojourn for that season. That's also when you'll find a few music concerts and special events taking place in the Versailles gardens." Yahoo Travel

   Just another reason why i insist,France is my dream destination. What is your's?


  1. Oh my! I don't really have a dream destination. I think I'd like to go to Africa and shoot photos- see the place where the giraffes stick their heads in the windows. Maybe England and France. How fun thanks for the dream moment!

  2. So when are you taking me on a trip? LOL! I would love to visit Scotland. The hills, the greens, the Scotsmen...oh wait, I'm married. Still!

  3. @Karen...Africa is easy!Just give me a shout and i will tell you the where, when, who, why or how!:)
