If you need help fighting the Monday Blues, treat yourself to a mental vacation!
Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to re-visit one of my favorite cities, Paris! On each visit, I’ve managed to include a day trip to the Palace of Versailles.
Interestingly enough, on each visit, I’ve discovered something new.
On my first visit, I was fascinated by the hall of mirrors. Although by our standards mirrors are rather ordinary, it was interesting to learn that owning mirrors during the 17th century was a sign of wealth and status.
On my second visit, I fell in love with the beautiful gardens. It was a treat to stroll along gardens that were once owned by French royalty.
What was my fascination on the last visit…the palace courtyard! If the palace is this magnificent today, I image it was 5x more beautiful in the 17th century.
Well, my mental vacation is over. Although it was short, it was nice to get away.
