Views of Extravagance in Versailles

I wonder what it would be like to wake up and realize that you live in Versailles.

I wonder what it would be like to see beautifully hemmed trees and gardens outside your bedroom.

I wonder what it would be like to have a home so big that you could get lost finding the bathroom.

I wonder what it would be like to have breakfast served  on silver plates.

I wonder what it would be like to have a lake where you can row your boat.

I wonder what it would be like to grow up with acres of green land in your backyard.

I wonder what it would be like to have a separate estate in the King’s palace like Marie Antoinette.

I wonder what it would be like to have painting s that belong in museums on your ceilings.

I wonder what it would be like to live in such extravagance.

 

What do you wonder?

*I’m leaving Paris in a few hours! It has been amazing. Hopefully I will post some more photos and thoughts on Paris later on.

    It always makes me sad to view such opulence when I know the common person was living a miserable life. I can’t imagine living in such surroundings. Your posts have been a highlight of my day, revisiting parts of Paris with you.

    Ah, Versailles … So over the top, but it’s nice to visit and take it all in anyway. You ‘ve had an amazing time, and thank you for sharing your holiday with us.

    I wonder if I will ever make it to France. I’m not much of a traveler anyway, but I would jump at the chance. Thanks for new pictures.

    I found the palace to be a bit too far over on the “way too much” spectrum, too. Many beautiful things, but really so far over the top! My favorite photo from my own trip is one of my little sister walking away from me: the gardens spreading out before her, her Yankees jacket like a billboard on her back.

    I’ve enjoyed my whirlwind tour of Paris through your eyes. So glad you brought us along with you!
