It doesn’t take long for me to get really fed up with my life at Versailles, or what was it called. Eating cake after cake and all that jazz. A girl needs to throw her skirts away and put on some hiking boots and head for the countryside to get a well-earned reset. On the peninsula of Yyteri I can see the kind of birds that where I come from they can’t even pronounce their names correctly.
When you go and observe some birds, dunes, reeds and forests – you’ll remember to keep your feet on the ground and your head between your shoulders. A simple life. It’s all that matters.
Marie Antoinette (1755-1793)
QUEEN OF FRANCE
