United Kingdom! Finally, we meet!
As long as I can remember, I've always wanted to go to London and do Bri-ish things. Haha!

We were so happy that the weather cooperated since we only had 3 days before heading back to Manila. Besides the perfect weather, I got to see two of my friends from highschool who were cool enough to give me a tour of London at night. And of course, we couldn't pass The Making of Harry Potter, right?

Stay tuned for my London Photo Diary!

Much love,
C

Chateau de Versailles Photo Diary


 “Versailles is a mirage, a sumptuous and theatrical entertainment. It is also a manifestation of glory and power imposed to a great extent by art, luxury, and magnificence,” writes Valérie Bajou, a modern-day curator at Versailles.

Chateau Versailles, a hunting lodge turned to palace, is about an hour train ride from Paris. It housed the French government, most notably during the reign of Louis XVI and his wife, Austrian princess, Marie Antoinette.

The palace is full of artworks. From paintings, sculptures, and lavishly decorated rooms. Overall, the palace was built to impress. It also features many fountains that were technological marvels at the time.

Today, The Palace of Versailles is one of France’s foremost tourist attractions. However, it still serves political functions.

I wonder how they sleep on those beds. They're so tiny!




Look at this headboard though!

And my favorite, the Hall of Mirrors.






Je t'aime, Paris! I can’t wait to go back and explore every nook and cranny of the city. Until we meet again. Au revoir!

Last stop on the trip, United Kingdom!
