|A new perspective on the Louvre.|
One sunny afternoon, we decided it was time for a picnic. All you really need for a proper French picnic is a warm baguette, some fresh Comté, and a cheap bottle of red wine - because all French wine is good wine. Wink!
A Parisian Picnic in Four Easy Steps
2. Bring your dog. If you don't have a dog, then simply make friends with one. Les chiens français are almost never leashed, and they are always happy to come give you and your picnic a sniff.
3. When you've finished eating, take a nap in the sunshine. An appropriate amount of time would be 15 minutes for a "cat-nap," 20 minutes for a "power-nap," and 25 minutes for a "let's-pretend-we're-napping-but-we're-actually-making-out-nap." That last variety is a favorite amongst actual Parisians.
|My choice? The power nap.|
4. Once your nap (and/or heavy petting) is complete, take a walk to aid in digestion. We chose to walk through the Jardin and admire blooming tulips and Auguste Rodin's incredible sculptures.
Voilà! Bonne journée!
