The breath taking Garden grounds of Château de Versailles

Though I took these photos while walking through the garden grounds of Château de Versailles, in the far corners of my mind, I am taken back to a place called ‘Plumfield’, a place where 10 year old Annie ‘Nan’ Harding grew up. From the beautiful blue sky, the foliage and the pathways, an image like this can only bring back nostalgic memories of your favorite books growing up.

Truly, to read is to travel, giving one the sense of ‘I’ve been here before…’. Beauty has a way of inspiring and bringing back memories. #chateauversailles Château de Versailles

LA RACLETTE!

A winter dish, which is usually eaten during frozen nights to warm up a little bit! Long ago, Raclette was a traditional meal for peasants in the mountains of Switzerland. Usually, they bring cheese with them when they go up or down the mountains and when there is campfire, they put the cheese close to the fire and when it melts to a certain softness, the peasants scrape it off as toppings on the bread.

Today, it is now considered a fantastic party dish! Each person takes a pan and lets the cheese melt in the Raclette maker. Can be combined with a variety of cheeses, vegetables and cold cuts. You can put chocolates as well, depending on the kind of Raclette party you’re having.

All the charm of a barbecue, except you can do it in winter! #LayasPaula #France 🇫🇷
