We have never attended any of these events because years ago the information was not disseminated well. It can now be studied on the web and tickets ordered in advance,. The site given is in French. They are almost exclusively in July and August and are at 1930-2130, for some early entry(2 hours ) of the grounds is possible. To make an evening of it would take a little planning and probably could be done better if you were staying nearer than Paris. There are also Baroque music concerts in the Chapel. I could not find anything on the Opera House.
Dress Code: Appropriate Attire
- Family Travel
Whenever I undertake a journey to a particular country I always want to know all about the surroundings, it’s history, it’s culture, which cities to visit, which hikes to undertake, et cetera. In advance to the journey I do browse over the internet to get certain information and read travel books just to make sure I won’t miss out on anything.
Once I am travelling I like to talk to the local people about their own country, their own region and those conversations will retrieve lots of extra information about some beautiful spots to visit, the ultimate restaurant or sometimes a particular area to avoid.
Ever since I have had myr own personal travel site and this one at Virtual Tourist I like not only to undertake the journey, but also write about it for everyone to enjoy. Just to make sure I won’t forget the details of the journey I write is all down in a diary. I have given the dairy the name “Diary of a madman” and it contains all the information I have gathered. I like to make the diary more beautiful to glue in some pictures out of folders and also the entrance tickets to museums, National Parks, bus tickets, et cetera.
This way I am able to tell all our friends about my travels. For Virtual Tourist I can reproduce all the information for (hopefully) solid tips with lots of good details that will help you in your travels. Besides that it’s always fun to read about a journey I took for example 7 or 8 years ago and read about what I exactly did and how I experienced it. I also have managed to keep in touch with the local people I talked to and do nourish these contacts. Especially at the travelogue section of each location you can see some pages out of the Diary of a madman. Yes, I know, it's written in Dutch, but you'll have an impression on how it looks. And maybe you can tell us how you remember all the information for your tips. Enjoy!
