Disneyland Paris!

Leave a comment Standard

Everyone enjoys visiting the happiest place on earth! I had the opportunity to visit Disneyland Paris when I was staying in the heart of the city. Good news if you are a Disney fan.. the park is easily accessible! All you have to do is hop on the train and it’s only an hour away. I have been to Disney World in Orlando, Florida many times so it was fun to see the different park attractions and rides. Disney never disappoints! Next up.. Disneyland in Asia?

They have some of the same famous rides that Disney World has such as “It’s a Small World”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “The Haunted Mansion” (called the “Phantom Manor” here) and “Space Mountain” but the inside and outside are different!

Photo Essay: Versailles

Leave a comment Standard

The Palace of Versailles is simply breathtaking! When the royal château was built, Versailles was merely a country village, but today it has developed into a wealthy suburb of Paris. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682 until the royal family was forced to leave in 1789 because of the beginning of the French Revolution. The palace itself is beautiful architecture, however once inside it is wall to wall with stunning paintings and chandeliers.

The Louvre in Paris, France is one of the world’s largest museums and a historic monument in itself. As soon as you get onto the property you are welcomed with the stunning view of The Louvre Palace and Glass Pyramid. I was in awe of the amazing paintings, sculptures, drawings.. even the ceilings are jaw dropping! If you always wanted to go and couldn’t, here is your chance to get a peek inside!
