Bois de Vincennes

Great sunny and warm day in Paris today and probably also for the next days.
Here is a place Parisian enjoy during the weekend : the Bois de Vincennes  located on the east side of Paris. It is a very big forest-like park with 2 lakes and it is a fabulous place to rest on a sunny day. There is a second big park like this one on the west side of the city called "Bois de Boulogne". I'm happy to live only 15 minutes away by bike from this Bois de Vincennes so I ride there even on evenings after work when days are longer and weather is good enough.
We're having a 3 day weekend in France as monday is a public holiday so a lot of people will enjoy these areas since the weather forecast is very good.

Bois de Vincennes is truly a lovely corner of Paris!

Celle là tu devrais la mettre sur les reflets du weekend.

Je vais faire tout mon possible pour EVITER de toute urgence ce genre d'endroit ce weekend !

Weekend que je te souhaite bon !
