Catalog Queen

Catalogue means the same thing in French and English - a list or record, as of items for sale or courses at a university. Catalogue queen, Spiegel, is giving away a Dream Getaway with a choice of six different destinations, including one week in Paris. The winner receives round trip air transportation for two to Paris, 7 nights at the Hotel Concorde de Lafayette or similar, a daily buffet breakfast, a 2-day Paris Museum pass, two 2-day France first class rail unlimited tour passes, and a Parisians Dinner Cruise on the Seine. Use your rail pass to check out Versailles, a decadent palace erected by the powerful "Sun King" Louis XIV. The famous Hall of Mirrors and glorious gardens are must sees, especially in the spring. Want a preview? Ogle Sofia Coppola's lavish film, Marie Antoinette, about the ill-fated cake queen who called Versailles home until she was executed. While many films are "set" at Versailles, Coppola is one of a handful of filmmakers ever allowed to actually shoot on the historic grounds. Catalogue your royal desires and enter.
