The last batch of our photos from France are of Versailles. On one of our last days there, we took the train down to this beautiful place that I was SO excited to see. Not gonna lie, the idea of walking around on these famous grounds made me feel really cool. Like I was royal or something, which definitely isn’t the case. Oh well, one can pretend – right!?? It was a sunny day, so the architecture and gardens were extra pretty. And despite the heat, this ended up being one of my favorite parts of the trip! Hands down.

The best part ( in my opinion ) of the palace is the Hall of Mirrors. It’s a long room filled with chandelier after chandelier and walls lined with mirrors. I couldn’t help but imagine the kind of parties they had back in the day. Extravagant, to say the least. It felt totally magical and unreal to me. Pretty much every room gave you that feeling, especially seeing how they set it up.

And of course, we can’t forget about Marie Antoinette. I took a picture of my feet because I decided that she probably walked there, too. Cheesy, but I had to do it! Plus, there were these cute little cottages on the grounds that literally dropped you into fairytale land. Trees, gardens, and brick buildings were all scattered about just perfectly. I want to go back, that’s for sure!

So there you have it, all of our photos from France, officially finished! I’m glad I shared them over a few weeks instead of all at once, just to relive the adventure again. I can’t believe it was already a month ago. This summer is seriously flying by. But isn’t that how life goes?? Let’s enjoy it!

      Thank you!! The Hall of Mirrors photo doesn’t even do it justice. Such a beautiful place. :)

    I would say the Hall of Mirrors is my favorite part of Versailles, but then I think about those beautiful manicured gardens…and I don’t know anymore. it’s all beautiful!

  3. loved following along on the trip – thanks for sharing! and yes, completely agreed on the hall of mirrors, especially when you consider all the history behind it.

    • breanna says:

      Thank you. :) The history is what made this place so special! Just the idea of it all and being able to walk through their space up close. So cool.

  5. Nesha says:

    That first picture of you is stunning! Loving the sunnies.

  6. Rebecca says:

    So beautiful! When I went years ago the hall of mirrors was under construction and all covered up. Now I think I need to go back soon!

    thanks for sharing all the images with us! I loved that you broke it up into little sections, made it more fun :)
    also, your first photo totally has a lana del rey vibe going on :p

    • breanna says:

      Glad you enjoyed it lady!! And Lana Del Rey?? Makin’ me blush … she’s legit. :)

  8. Lucy says:

    Loving these, Breanna! Looks like you had a gorgeous visit. France is brilliant, every time I go to a new part I decide that it is my new favourite. Thinking a trip to Versailles is on the cards! (It is a little easier for us Brits to hop across than for you guys I guess!) I’m sad that this is the last batch!

      I’m so jealous you can easily fly all throughout Europe for the most part!! SO jealous. You should definitely take a little trip to Versailles if you can. :)

  9. Milynn says:

    Beautiful photos of your trip! I hope to one day see these places for myself :)

  10. Chelsea says:

    Sooooo pretty and sooo magical. I can’t wait to go here someday!

  11. Jessica says:

    Great post and beautiful photos!

  12. I have been daydreaming about Versailles for well, years and years now. It just seems so magical. I hope my husband and I are able to make it there when we are in Europe later this summer. Just seems too gorgeous to pass up…

  13. Erika says:

    Oh my gosh, Versailles is so beautiful! I’ve had the opportunity to go there a few times and it’s always breathtaking! To imagine that such luxury and opulence existed so long ago? Wow… it makes me really appreciate formality, something that tends to be lacking in US culture (not saying it’s a bad thing because I’m a total casual person). Like you said, it’s just fun to imagine the beautiful parties and clothing and ritziness of that era (if you were royalty, of course, haha). :)

  14. em says:

    UGH seriously let’s just go back. and I have some pics for you that I’ve been meaning to send!! GAH

  15. Madeleine says:

    Beautiful photos! Hope I get to visit this place one day.

    I really enjoyed Paris last year during my Euro trip. My travel buddies and I made the mistake of going during Bastille weekend though – whoops! So as you can imagine, Versailles was PACKED (as was the rest of Paris and its vicinity). I couldn’t get a good shot of the Hall of Mirrors because of the crowds. Guess I’ll have to return to the city of love sometime in the near future!

    Lovely photos :-)
