Editorâ€™s Note: While I am preparing to leave Las Vegas, embark on an epic cross-country road tripÂ exploring AmericaÂ and relocate to Thailand to become anÂ expat, I have opened my blog to special guest posts from travel bloggers I love. This is a guest post written by Christine Medina.

In Marie Antoinette’s sprawling playground, I had carved out my own personal retreat from the mobs of fellow snap-happy tourists. Though the Versailles palace is a sight to behold, I think I found the real gem in the gardens.
