Out And Around Paris

paris

While there is no shortage of things to see and do in Paris, don’t be afraid of exploring a little further afield too. There are many great places you can visit for a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s arrondissements and these are just a few of them.

Versailles

Versailles is just a short train journey away from the city, and it is where you will find the Royal Palace of Versailles surrounded by the wonderful palace gardens. This is one of the most opulent chateaux in the region and it is also of huge historical importance. It is also where the treaty at Versailles was signed that ended the First World War. The treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors, the same location that saw the 1871 proclamation of the German Empire under the Kaiser. The Palace was built by Louis XIII on the site of a hunting lodge.

Forest of Fontainebleau

The Forest of Fontainebleau means the forest of heather and it lies just sixty kilometres away from the city and is easily reached by train and coach. Now a national park, it was once a royal hunting park. It covers 25,000 hectares and is densely populated by flora and fauna including many rare species. There are hundreds of designated walks and trails and for the more adventurous there are many rocky places that attract climbers of all skills from beginners to experts. Alternatively you can hire a bicycle or even a horse for the day.

Chateau of Fontainebleau

At Fontainebleau you will also find a wonderful chateau which dates back to the middle ages and which was once an important seat of power and which bears the marks of many Emperors, Kings and Queens; in fact a total of 34 monarchs have ruled from this chateau. You will discover the Renaissance Rooms which contain stuccoes and frescos designed by Primatice and Rosso that date back to sixteenth century; the Inner Apartment of Napoleon 1st which dates back to 1808; the Grand Apartments of the Sovereigns with many fine paintings and tapestries collected over three centuries; the Pope’s Apartment; and the Lesser Apartments which Napoleon built for Josephine.

Giverny

Giverny, made famous by Claude Monet who built his Japanese garden here which featured in many of his paintings, lies just eighty kilometres outside Paris and is a must see place for any lover of art. Wander round the gardens and visit the Musée des Impressionnismes, perfect for a day out from the city and you can travel by bus or train to get there.

Nowadays getting to Paris is inexpensive and convenient. Buses to Paris from London depart throughout the day and you can even travel by night to make the most of your weekend away.

Travel Bucket List – America, France, South Africa And Madagascar

We created a bucket list this year and we added a few travel destinations and what we’d like to do there. So we thought we’d share them with the rest of you and we’d like to know what other areas you think we should add to our list.

North America

Ellis Island Tour

 A beautiful museum in America full of history about the cultural diversity between 1892 and 1954. The museum is situated near the Statue of liberty so it will be two birds with one stone for us.

Steamboat Springs Ski Resort

Apparently an amazing place between the Rockies if you’d like to put on the ski’s and ski over fluffy soft snow.

Tornado Springs

Definitely one we’ll try to do as soon as possible. It’s the Tornado tourism adventure. There’s a company that will take you tornado hunting and keep you a safe distance from the tornado so you can view nature doing its work.

Zero Gravity Flights

Near Orlando you’ll find the Kennedy Space Centre where you will be able to experience a zero gravity flight (NASA trains their astronauts in this program as well).

France

Eiffel Tower

First stop will be the Eiffel tower which is a must for anyone hitting France. We’ll also enjoy some traditional Croissants while drinking some vintage red wine.

Courcheval Snowboard heaven

After experiencing the ski resort in America we’ll head over to the Snowboard resort at Courcheval, where you can jump onto a snowboard and enjoy the powder snow and rolling hills. They also offer chilled champagne and a fun park for the kids (If you take them along of course).

The Chocolate coast

Our next stop will be the chocolate coast which is situate din the Basque country. Hot chocolate has become a fashionable drink in this part of the coast and apparently you’ll get the best tasting hot chocolates in the world here (I have a sweet tooth so this was my choice).

South Africa 

Cape Town

When in Cape Town you have to do as the Capetonians and that means go to the Waterfront to enjoy their culture with street performers, local dishes and good company. After the Waterfront mall, we’re climbing Table Mountain!

Garden Route

The garden route is a lush coastal road filled with many towns along the way. Well make a stop at the Redberry Farm (Quad biking, strawberry picking and more) at George, eat seafood at Knysna and then spend the night in Hartenbos after our Garden Route trip.

Madagascar

Our last stop will be Madagascar as we’ve always wanted to see the diverse species on this small tropical island. My wife has always had an inkling for the Horned Chameleon and I’ve also booked a beautiful cabin on the Nosy Be Island which is the favourite amongst tourist there for its great service and cheap costs.

Patrick and his Wife are eager to go on this trip and they hope you enjoy it as well if you follow their steps. They recommend getting accommodation in Hartenbos since they received great service there!
