Chateau De Saint Germain En Laye

The Road To Everywhere.
Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
One of the lesser-known, but just as incredible, châteaus in the suburbs of Paris.
I flew to Paris and was wandering around the grounds of the beautiful château forty-five minutes after leaving the airport .

The grounds are impressively immaculate, and the solitude is all-encompassing.

I encountered only three other people during my entire walk, one of which was watering the flowers whilst singing a tune.

It is the kind of place you can do that--sing your heart out and with the only audience being the standing ovation of trees ahead of you.


From The Other Angle.
Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye is the kind of place that is wonderfully captivating from any angle. And the perfectly tremendous part is that the sheer vastness of the grounds provides a distinctly massive amount of angles to peer at the world from.

While it is easy to get caught up in the fantasy of the château and feel Alice-in-Wonderland "lost," one need not look far to find a glimpse of reality through the key-hole-esque gaps between the trees that rim the grounds.

Days can be spent just walking the perimeter. Don't even get me started on what happens when one enters the domain!
