Ah Versailles….the stuff that dreams are made of (and nightmares for an unfortunate few in 1789).  This is one of my favourite places on earth and I was lucky enough to visit for the 3rd time with my mom for my birthday in October 2011.  For the first time, I was able to see la Palais a la nuit (after getting blissfully and somewhat terrifyingly lost in the gardens!).
