Un Château

Saint-Germain-en-Laye

Before we said our "au revoir" and parted for the summer holidays, Jasmine invited me to her gorgeous apartment for a delicious Thai red curry prepared by her. It was the first time I visited not only Jasmine but also the lovely town Saint-Germain-en-Laye, where she lives. 19km from the centre of Paris, it took me little more than 30 minutes to arrive "chez elle." We had such a lovely time together, enjoying each others company, talking, laughing and eating! haha and after we went for a little "promenade" around the city centre and around the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be to have a picnic on the grass in front of the castle and I would very much like to visit the National Museum of Archaeology one day (situated inside the castle). This place is full of  history, the King Louis XIV was born here and the castle has been a long-time residence of the Kings of France. We than walked around the stunning garden, designed by André Le Nôtre, who also designed the Château de Versailles and The Château de Chantilly. It was such a lovely day :) 
I'm currently writing to you from Biarritz (southwestern France) and would like to wish you happy holidays :) xx
