Visiting Versailles- A Chateau to Remember

Visiting Versailles- A Chateau to Remember

Visiting Versailles-A Chateau to Remember Our trip to Paris included a fairytale castle, the Chateau de Versailles.  If you have watched the Netflix show “Versailles”, or studied French history you know that Versailles was first visited by Louis XIII in 1607 during a hunting trip.  This started the magical evolution from a small hunting lodge built in 1623 to the grand palace it is today.  There is so much history within the walls of the Chateau which are displayed through…

A Trip to Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland

A Trip to Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland

A Day Trip to Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland As we were leaving Lucerne we had some extra time and so I looked in our Atlas to see if there were any points of interest around Lucerne.  Now I know this is antiquated as our trip was in 2012 and today I would have searched Pinterest prior to going to Lucerne and would have had lots of great information on Mt. Pilatus.  Unfortunately, I had an atlas and noticed a red whirly-bird…

Fontainebleau Chateau – a Beautiful Hunting Palace

Fontainebleau Chateau – a Beautiful Hunting Palace

Visiting Fontainebleau Chateau On the way back from Paris I had the good fortune to live out a dream I have had since I was in 7th grade French class to visit a place called Fontainebleau- what is it my husband asks.  Honestly- I thought it was another castle, in reality, it was a favored hunting lodge of the kings of France.  Fontainebleau was the largest of the French Royal Chateaus- so I guess it is a castle of sorts, more…

Beartree Park-Spend a day surrounded by bears and beautiful gardens

Beartree Park is a beautiful park filled with bears and amazing gardens.   The park has something for everyone and is a very pleasant way to spend a day in South Korea. We first visited this Park in late November, it was cold and rainy and let’s just say I was hoping we could come back under better circumstances.   I could tell  that the park would be beautiful in the summer months, so it was with great joy that on a…
