You are sick of Paris, you feel oppressed, you can no longer stand walking among hordes of tourists and seeing the same buildings everyday, even the Tour Eiffel… You can’t take it anymore, you only see Paris as a grey and sad city full of bitter people…
As soon as the fine weather returns, terraces are being stormed and going for a sunbath at Buttes Chaumont feels like being on a beach of the French Riviera during August : you look for the only free square meter and you lie down with your neighbor’s feet in your face!
You need a change of scenery, to relax, to see colorful facades and green places filled with flowers. A good thing as it turns out that a 3 day-weekend is coming. The problem is that these weekends the planes and the trains are overly expensive unless you book them a long time in advance and it is out of question to take the car and be stuck in traffic for hours! What do we do then? We mope around angrily cursing all of our friends posting pictures of their holidays or do we go out and enjoy Paris properly?
Because Paris is also this:
rue du Capitaine Ferber
Passage du Lieutenant Chauré
Villa Etienne Marey
After having crossed all these charming streets, you arrive at this area called « La Campagne à Paris » (it is rue Irénée-Blanc and rue Jules Siegfried in the 20th arrondissement of Paris). No, you’re not dreaming, we’re still in Paris!
It is difficult to imagine that Paris ring-road is right next door isn’t it? Anyway you don’t have any more excuses, you know what to do this weekend. Hop hop hop people, everybody outside! :)
You can even find other stroll ideas like this one here.
Happy egg hunt!
