Versailles, Versailles, Versailles!!!

When I was a kid, during a short trip to Paris, my mother took my brother and I to  Versailles’s palace. She was really excited about it and I could feel that we were going to have a major experience in our life. And we did have a special moment, but what stayed in my memory are the hour long wait at the entrance, the grandiose Hall of Mirrors and the bedroom of Marie-Antoinette.

But this time we spent a bit of time inside the museumRead more

There are many things I could tell about London and many things I could show but I have to admit that blogging, photographing and being social with hubby and kids was quite challenging for me… and for them. Imagine you are a kid of seven or nine years old, you areRead more
