I have done some significant travel in July of this year including Montreal, Alberta, Connecticut, Paris, London, Wiesbaden and Tel Aviv. Imagine the surprise of my significant other when I suggested a day out of Paris last Sunday. This time though we went together.
I live less than 30 minutes from the beautiful Chateau de Chantilly. Whatever took me so long to visit? And what else am I missing?
|Once off the train you take a short walk through a park, past the Hippodrome,|
Then you see this gorgeous stand of trees. What a welcome.
|The walk through the beautiful trees |
is in itself an experience not to be missed
|Then the chateau from afar|
much like a fairy tale
|Up close we are not disappointed|
|Brief pause for creme de Chantilly|
|And a walk through the woods to burn|
the chantilly calories and enjoy the peace.
You could spend hours here. We did.
There are "rooms" designed for dining, games
and other events.
|And sculptures to embrace the beauty of the fountains|
|Contemplating life outside of Paris.|
