Picnic in the Park

Charlie Pea|May 25, 2015

Nothing makes me happier than seeing little signs of the fact that summer has officially found its way to Paris. During the last couple of days we’ve be able to enjoy the most beautiful weather here in the city. I think my mood during the last couple of days is easy to describe as “extremely happy”. Summer, not surprisingly, is my favourite season during the year, the sunshine might have something to do with it… Along with a few other things.


With my sister visiting me for the weekend I’ve barely been in my apartment at all. Spending nearly all of our time outside we were truly making the most of this city in the sunshine. After arriving on Friday we headed straight to Places des Vosges for a well needed catch up, staying cool by ice-cream from Amorino constructed into pretty little roses and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. On Saturday we met up with girls from school and enjoyed the delicious array food of from Marche des Enfants Rouges, spending hours over the choices before finishing with a well deserved carafe of Rose. On Sunday we explored the weekly food market at Bastille collecting everything we needed for our picnic before setting off for the Eiffel Tower. It was a perfect choice – the Roland Garros French Open was projected a huge screen under the Eiffel Tower for all picnickers to watch, the sun shining and a selection of food that could feed an army – we slept, ate, watched tennis and lay in the sun all afternoon.
