This week, I’ve drawn inspiration for our destination from Lila DiPasqua
. Her latest novel, The Princess in His Bed
, releases on November 2, 2010, so I thought it fitting to travel her way. Which way is that? Well, France, of course. I haven’t read DiPasqua yet myself but seeing the ratings for her books has convinced me to give them a try. With Princes and castles and romance (did I mention “Fiery” romance?), how can you go wrong?!
So, grab your walking shoes and let’s head to Versailles Palace, The Tuileries and Vaux Le Vicomte…or should I say: Allons-y!!
Our first stop is the Palace of Versailles.
Versailles at night…so pretty!

The famous Hall of Mirrors

Here is a picture of The Tuileries before the Revolution (around 1798)
…and as it is today.
One of many statues to be found throughout the garden at the Tuileries.
Vaux le Vicomte
The garden at Vaux le Vicomte. This appears to be a hedge maze that I’d have a fighting chance of finding my way through :-p
when I visit here, my prince will be waiting for me
