One of my all-time favorite pictures, taken by P during our recent trip to France and Spain. We love scenic bike rides and have managed, without trying to make a point to, to fit in a biking experience on each trip we have gone on together. This was taken in Jardin du Chateau de Versailles, aka the park next to Versailles palace in France. This is a free public area right next to the gardens, and bikes are permitted (rentals available). The rain was setting in but we managed to make the most of it. There are these incredible rows of trees in the garden and the park. I joked that this must be the path to the Beast’s castle and named my bike Phillipe (I always felt bad for him when Belle’s dad went, “Where have you taken us, Phillipe?!”). You truly feel like you are in a fairytale forest. For me, it’s more about the bicycles and all the green. Two things guaranteed to bring me some peace.
