Day 106: Canal St Martin

It has been a week since I left my apartment with a coat. Instead, tucked in my bag, is a small cardigan, which I haven’t been using either. Really, Paris has become the new California. It also makes it very hard for me – quite torn actually – to either stay in and work (I have a lot on my plate right now with looming deadlines) or to go out and profite-bien le soleil.

In the end, the good old adage of balancing work and fun makes more sense. Instead of just gazing longingly out my window, I steal a couple of hours to be out, walk about, and to soak up some Vitamin D. At Canal St Martin, hundreds of sun lovers obviously have less qualm about spending their time outdoors. They lounged canal-side, with picnic spread and chilled drinks, chatting and laughing. Worry not, I will have my share of fun this evening – piña colada party, here I come!

    I adored Canal St Martin when I visited it a few years ago. The custom of taking food and wine to share by the water is lovely. Lately I’ve been trying to devise ways of getting back there as soon as possible. Do enjoy the sun :)

      Thanks Jess! Paris does inspire return trips, and the weather of late has been wonderful so this is a good time to (re)visit :)
