The Perfect Parisian Sunday

Today, the weather finally reached above 70 degrees… hell, it finally reached above 55 degrees, which meant it was the perfect opportunity to visit Parc des Buttes Chaumont with some friends. Opened in 1867, Parc des Buttes Chaumont is the third largest park in Paris after Bois de Vincennes and Bois de Boulogne, and the steepest with 5 kilometers of hills and trails – perfect for hill training if you’re running a race.

There’s a café that almost resembles a beer garden called Rosa Bonheur within the park with outdoor seating, and we were lucky enough to grab a picnic table and enjoy some nibbles and rosé. When we passed by later in the evening, there was a huge line of people waiting to get in. Apparently the place turns into a dance party at night.

After Rosa Bonheur, we decided to veg out on the grass and soak up the vitamin D. To say it was packed is an understatement.

After a lovely day in the park with friends, Tyler and I decided we deserved some ice cream from Amorino, while Rio was passed out on the couch from the beer and wine. Here’s a pic of us waiting on line. I hope you all enjoyed your Sundays aussi!
