As promised, here is the second part of the day I spent at le Parc du Château de Versailles. I tried to capture all the beauty of it, but it’s actually impossible. There’s so much magic in this park and being able to take a walk in a place where royalties were living and spending most of their time hundreds of years ago, gave me butterflies, kind of. I was pretty excited to walk in their footsteps. With my husband, we discussed the architecture, the immensity of the park, the symmetry of the ponds and trees, it all impressed us since we didn’t expect such a huge place to be so perfect and well-maintained.
Throwback to my last visit in Paris, when I took my husband to Le Parc du Château de Versailles for the first time. I am ashamed to admit it was my first time visiting it too. But when you live in Paris, you don’t really care about historical buildings and all that stuff, especially when you’re young and a working student. Weekends were for homework and occasionally for the movies, while holidays were for trips outside Paris or outside France. But now that I am living abroad, and knowing a bit more about French history and monuments, I enjoy discovering those places I’ve heard so much about and knew so little.
The day we went visiting, there was only a few people and the weather was excellent. ‘Cause usually, there are people queuing all the way down to the street, so needless to say how happy and lucky we were that day! And as my husband wanted to see every corner of le Parc du Château de Versailles which is 715 hectares, we spent several hours there and at the end I just wanted to go home and took off my new Converse which were killing my feet and back.
Putting aside the pain, this is the most beautiful man-made place I’ve visited so far.
Tomorrow I’ll post more pictures of the park to show you guys, what a divine place le Parc du Château de Versailles is.
