Daily Wanderlust: The Gardens of Versailles

Written by on June 24, 2012 in Destinations, Guest Posts - No comments

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

Versailles’ intricate lawns and extensive flower-beds are stunning, but the farther away you get from the palace, the humbler the grounds get.

This tree-lined path caught my eye, and even though I went to Versailles, France, at the height of tourist season, there was no one to be found here.

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.
