Gardens of Versailles - Beautiful Virtual tour through the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles (France) The Gardens of Versailles (French: Jardins du château de Versailles) occupy part of what was once the Domaine royal de Versailles, the royal demesne of the château of Versailles.

The Palace of Versailles was the principal residence of the French kings from the time of Louis XIV to Louis XVI.

Took another day hike (solo this time), at Versailles State Park near Versailles Indiana. This is a smaller park but has a lot packed into a small area. Lots of mountain biking trails (16 miles) and 6 miles of hiking trails. In this video, I also show my smartphone tripod adapter which I love (they are NOT sponsors, I just love the product). You can find the GRIPT smartphone adapter here: http://amzn.to/2acRT0R Also you can find out more information about this park here: http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/2963.htm And here is the address for the park in Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/place/1387+US-50,+Versailles,+INfirstname.lastname@example.org,-85.2202037,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x886a5d44a865c4df:0x7381e218f86e97ec!8m2!3d39.0643763!4d-85.218015 #indianastateparks #indianahikingtrails ...
We went on our first camping trip (if you call RVing it camping, either which way it's the closest I'll get to being outside) and I can honestly say I absolutely loved it. It brought me back to my childhood. Music: Dj Quads https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads
A tour of the greatest of all European mansions, the palace and gardens of Versailles. Built by the Sun King, Louis XIV, it was designed as a way to maximise royal power at the expense of everyone else at court. And it sure worked for him! Such a magnificent place to explore, and perfectly well preserved. Don't forget to Like and Subscribe to see more of my UNESCO World Heritage Journey!
