The place to fall in love: VERSAILLES!

We have nothing but good memories in Versailles. Every time I visit France, I try to drop by Versailles. For me ganap na ganap talaga syang inspiration and refill for the soul.

I really don’t know if it’s the gardens, the fountains, the palace, or my imagination but nakakafeeling maganda talaga yung lugar.

Check our Versailles trip here:

Obviously, hindi ako nagiisa! Seems like suki din sa location ang Versailles for fashion. Well, si Marie Antoinette nga naman ang tumiri ditich.

Couture fall 2011 had it’s finale in Versailles. Bonggels ng set-up!

Musée Galliera had an exhibition din dun sa same venue called “Le XVIII au Goût du Jour” na nag-curate nang mga eighteenth-century style couture gowns. In short, peg nila si Marie Antoinette!

Christian Dior. Anong sinabi ng pagkared na yan! PAKAK!

Versailles, France!

As requested, ayan isang travel post again para sa inyo.

This is form our trip last year pa but since ang daming nagtatanong kung anong pwedeng gawin sa Paris…here you go!

Travel 30-45 minutes to Versailles! Yes, para makita nyo ang ganap ni Marie Antoinette. If marami kang time, spend the whole day there para makapagkodakan sa gardens, fountains (during summer), palace and the ”miniature” farm of Marie Antoinette.

If you saw the movie of Kristen Dunst na MARIE ANTOINETTE, some scenes were actually shot here so bonggels! Maiintindihan nyo gaano ka engrande yung ganap nila and maybe understand din bakit nagprotesta yung mga tao….

If you watch the movie, masmiintindihan nyo pero sa mga hindi alam ang ganap bigyan ko na naman kayo ng history lesson (from what I know lang ha).

Marie Antoinnette was originally from a Royal Family in Austria. Actually she married very young kasi sya nalang ata yung potential sa family, she was set up at 12 years old and officially “turned over” to the French by 15. So imagine nyo, hello wala pa akong alam sa pag-ibig at kasal nung 12 years old. Ang gusto ko pakasalan nun si Leonardo di Caprio ata! haha!

And chizmiz, ksp daw si Marie Antoinette dahil si jowaers nya d sya masyado pinapansin kaya nahilig sa gambling, parties at mga ganap. May chizmiz din na marami syang fling. Pero malay ko ba if truth oh hindi, sabi lang nung tourist guide na feeling close kay MA. haha!

So anyways, ayun sobra niyang inaliw ang sarili sa bonggels na damit at mga alahas. Madami pang naganap in the middle especially sa political history ng France that lead to inis ng utash sa kanya. So like the story of most Royal tragedies, na-overthrow levels sila and she was executed.

Bongga magbasa ng mga history chuchu but if you don’t have patience, you can watch MARIE ANTOINETTE.

I also liked the movie THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL pero para sa ibang royalty yun. Kwento ko next time.

Mahilig daw si MA maglaro sa palasyo nya. Good luck sa hide and seek dito. haha!

We arrived early so nagbreakfast muna kami before the palace.

MUST SEE! Gardens of Versailles

Milan and his posing sa Versaille… BOW.

Inside the Palace

Bonggels kasi wala masyadong tao nung pumunta kami. Sa nakapag muni muni kaming lahat.

Chocolate hills version nila. hahaa!

OO, bago nyo itanong, nagchange outfit talaga ako. Iba ang palace dress sa garden dress. haha! Nagbaon ako. Sayang naman ang kodakan eh! haha!

Would love to visit Versailles again! Til our next travel post!

Much love,
