Car Chases and Culture

palace

I visited Beaulieu Palace over the weekend. There's some amazing history there and some really gorgeous cars. There were even some vehicles from the James Bond films. I definitely need the one with the fully automatic/automated machine gun mounted on the back. Oh come on! Like you wouldn't want one too!!

You'll have to forgive my photos. Some are with a camera but others are with my camera phone. If I'm totally honest, I was running around snapping pictures like a super hyper puppy with opposable thumbs. Not a pretty sight.

  1. Ugh, I am so jealous that you get to visit castles & palaces! How fabulous are you?! I'm not a huge car person, but I love anything that's even mildly historical, so this exhibit definitely still appeals to me. Thanks for sharing all your pictures.

  3. Cool photos. I love visiting mansions, castles, palaces, and stuff like that. I'm going to be honest, when I first saw your photo of the Beaulieu Palace, I thought of Downton Abbey. LOL Have you seen that show? I'm addicted. If you haven't, I guess that a good thing, but if you want another addiction, go watch it. LOL

  6. I love Beaulieu SO much. They do an antiques fair too, I'm hoping to visit soon. I think my London friends get so bored of me telling them how amazing the New Forest/ Bournemouth is, I think they think I should probably just move back. Hehehe
    Thank you so much for my lovely comment on my blog, so kind. xx

    Ohhhhh, everything looks like so vintage! You know, I'd love to be there!!!!!

    My five posts about the Carnival worth it because I received this comment, Rachel! You said ecxatly what I was wainting for! The Carnival is about art, criativity and happyness… Things that were lost in my mind! because of that I was hating Carnival!!

    Thank you so much, Rachel! You are really precious for me and for my humble blog!

    The dress in the previous post is so stunning!!!!!

    Kisses,

  8. I would love to live in a mansion (or a castle, ideally) and drive some jalopies (all in pastel colors) all around my manor and to town one day. And snack on macarons EVERY SINGLE DAY. not much to ask for, right? :)

    LOVELY photos, Rachel!

  9. Can you take me there? I love some old cars and racy history (no pun intended). It looks like so much fun. And you know I would want a machine gun. Come on.
