Most of this day was spent at the Lourve so this might be boring for some folks as most photos will be of paintings, sculptures etc. Though it was off to Angelina’s for lunch and Napoleon’s area is really pretty too.
Making this totally random post.
Most of us that blog out there know that blogging isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. I know it could take hours to sort through photos and edit them. Sometimes we type up a post that just sits in the drafts section for weeks only to start from scratch again.
For myself, I usually need to be in the mood to blog and have to make enough time for it. I like to reply all my comments on the same day as well as write up new posts. This usually takes up at least half a day (with breaks of course hehe)
Though this is my hobby there are times when I dread it. I’ll think “oh gosh I need to put up that post I said I would ages ago”. Which leads to my next point, when you promise something but deliver late, or never at all! Next thing you know blogging starts to turn into another reason for stress instead of it being something you unwind with!
To keep myself motivated to blog I really only blog about things that interests me, just because this is my blog and I’m not obligated to blog to make others happy. Though it does give me great joy that others enjoy my blog, I’ll only write posts that I want to. If you find that you’re starting to blog about “boring” topics or stuff that doesn’t even peak your interests then stop! Blog for yourself and not others! Though it’s true that when I blog I have my readers in mind I never let it dictate when I’m going to write about. Which is probably why there are some boring-ass posts sometimes LOL
So if you ever need a break from blogging then take it! Don’t worry about always putting up a new post every Tuesday etc. For those that do I applaud you!
This was really the most anticipated part of the trip for me! Even if I only had two days in Paris I would have taken the time to go here because I wanted to see it that much! I actually got really emotional when I was walking up to the gates and nearly cried -.-
Getting to the palace is fairly easy and you can find clear instructions just by googling how to get there. I actually did very little research for this trip, asides from hotel research and I googled how to get here just the night before but that’s how easy it was!
I won’t go too much into detail about it’s history but I’ll mention that it was originally a hunting lodge and it wasn’t until later on that the court moved here. I highly recommend purchasing the book they have at the gift shop titled “Versailles”. It comes in many different languages so much sure you pick up the right one! It’s quite inexpensive at 15euros for a hard cover book with about 150 pages and lots of coloured photos too! I’ve yet to read it as I’m saving it for a nice rainy day where I can just sit/lay in bed for hours and devour the book with some tea and sweets =) <— not hard for Vancouver weather lol I’ll also have a photo of all the goodies I bought on my trip too.
This was my favorite part of the trip. The weather was gorgeous and I got to take my time and stroll through the gardens. If I could come again I would with a packed up lunch to picnic with and spend more time in the gardens. I’m so happy and grateful to have had the chance to come to one of the places I could only dream of.
Till next time!
