  • Palace of Versailles

    Can you imagine what those two would do if they had a room full of mirrors to themselves? They'd have to rename the book "50,000 Shades of Grey." While they had to share the Palace of Versailles with fellow tourists, this was one of many stops on their honeymoon. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Fifty_Shades_of_Grey.html?utm_source=huffingtonpost&utm_medium=slideshow&utm_content=photo2&utm_campaign=50shadesofgrey" target="_hplink">See all destinations from Fifty Shades of Grey on Trippy.</a>

    Home to Ana and Christian's Portland rendezvous (not to mention the infamous line: "What is it about elevators?"), the Heathman has become the premier site on the "Fifty Shades" pilgrimage. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Fifty_Shades_of_Grey.html?utm_source=huffingtonpost&utm_medium=slideshow&utm_content=photo5&utm_campaign=50shadesofgrey" target="_hplink">See all destinations from Fifty Shades of Grey on Trippy.</a>
