PARIS: parks

One of our favourite things about Paris is the love and importance of the parks that have a place in almost every arrondissement. These beautiful treasures are always full of cute little French speaking kids, and very cute French boys, (best of both worlds I’d say). From the three main parks we stopped into I couldn’t pick a favourite, they all had an other worldly beauty that totally isolated you from the busy cobble stoned streets. We visited Parc Bercy (12th arr.), Parc Monceau (8th arr., as per Eva Green’s suggestion in L’Officiel) and a Parc in Montmartre, of which I do not know the name, (18th arr.). It was common practice for the locals to be with their respective lovers, laying on the grass, reading books together, or very enthusiastically making-out. French stereotypes numbers 1, 2, 3: Fact. Also there was no lack of bike riding, Ray Ban glasses, and white and black stripped shirts. French stereotypes numbers 4, 5, 6: Fact (there will be more to follow).

This is an unknown park... got lost.
