Land of the Kings

Describing Versailles is rather difficult. It is probably easiest to just say it is the most magnificent place I have ever been. Not only is it incredibly large and spread out, but it is also filled with many small, ornate details. When you first walk up to it you are greeted by gold leaf gates and when you walk through them you enter into the world of the kings of the past. I lost my breath just a little walking in front of the Château. It’s size and beauty were simply astounding.

After that you enter into the château, which is now a museum of sorts on the inside, you look left and can find paintings and portraits filling the walls, but you can also look right to see the royal cathedral or a lavish bedroom. The space is always filled with something new.

As you continue to walk through the palace you eventually enter into the King and Queen’s quarters. These were of course the nicest looking in my opinion and I even recognized one of the paintings of Marie Antoinette and her three children (before one of them passed away)! Just outside of those rooms is my favorite room in the entire château and more than likely the favorite of many others as well: The Hall of Mirrors. It is filled with chandelier after chandelier. Mirror after mirror. And gilded gold as far as the eye can see.

After a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants in the building, which is housed in a former Duchess’ room, I headed outside with my roommate Mal (pictured in a few images) and some other friends to the gardens. Sadly my feet were far too tired at this point to walk the entire garden, which to be fair no one else in our group was able to, so we have to head back another day for that. I actually saw many runners on the pathways so I’m thinking it would be advantageous to not only get in a work out, but see some history while doing it. All in all the trip outside the city was just perfect, despite the rain, and I am already planning my next trip back!

Yours Truly,
