Little trips to come

I think I've never talked to you about anywhere else in France then Paris, right ? I did talked to you about the main train stations in the town, but not quite about where you can go from there, and I think it's the right time to do so :) For this first "out of Paris" post I won't go very far as I'll stick to France (no Europe overview yet ;) ), so don't be too afraid to get lost ;)

Vendee - Region of France The first place I'll introduce : Vendée. "Vendée" is a costal region of the West of France you can see in red on the map beside (Paris being in the middle of the green dot, if you've forgotten). The two main reasons you would want to go there (in my opinion) are : historical monuments and beaches.

In fact, those are two of the reasons I'm going to spend a weekend there next week :) !!! Me and 3 friends of mine are leaving Paris (by car) at around 6pm, and should arrive there before midnight to be ready to enjoy the "puy du fou" and the beaches for the whole weekend ! I know, you're wondering what the "puy du fou" is, don't worry I'll explain : it's kind of a park which theme is the history of this region of France, so if you like middle-age, kings, knights, vikings, and peons, you'd like to go there (sometimes it's cool to live in an old country ;) ! ). After a whole day at the "puy du fou", we'll spend the second one at the beach I think, and we'll then drive back to Paris before the end of the weekend :)

Vendee - What I'll see there

It will definitely be a busy weekend, and I'll have to really get motivated to wake up on the following monday and go to work but it'll be cool to have a "beach break" with friends :) ...and after all it's not going to be my "real" holidays : I'm going to a special place of Brittany in august for 5 days, and to a town in the south of France for 3 days...but that's other stories (soon to come on this blog ;) )

Holiday (tiny one)

Jesus Christ Today was a day off. It's a national holiday in France to commemorate the Ascension of Jesus. Lucky us : today was also one of the warmest day of the last pasts weeks so it was VERY pleasant to hang out in the town (and I sure did !). That was the good part of this post ;) For the sad one : I will not blog during the coming days.

Don't worry, "the coming days" means until Monday only :) ! So no reason to freak out. It won't change you a lot anyway as I barely post more than once a week lol. In fact the only thing that changes is this very post :) Usually, instead of this pathetic little post of apology, you should have had a normal post (i.e. longer, with facts and good tips in it). Oh by the way, I apologized about not posting anything interesting instead of this little text but I did not tell you why I haven't the time to post a real thing here. Let's do that :

As we (me and my friends) knew ages ago that this day was holiday we planned a lot of things to do. In fact we planned so many things that I'll have less free time than when I work lol ! By the way I should go to bed now because we have a 48h non-stop planing starting tomorrow, I'd better be in good shape lol.

Once again sorry for this very little thing (at least you'd have learn that the Ascension of Jesus is a day off in France ;) )

Cute girls in Paris, but where ?

Cute Girl As I told you a handful of weeks ago : spring's coming in Paris. Among the many things I love about Paris in spring & summer time are the sun (the town's even more gorgeous under the sun), the birds (I like to hear them twitter ;) ), the trees becoming green again, and beautiful women everywhere ! Well...everywhere, that's true, but one have to say that there are still some places where you can find a lot more of them than anywhere else, and as I'm definitely a generous guy I decided I'll share my spots with you ;)

I made my first "beautiful girls map" years ago with the help of friends, and now when I look back it I realize I've terribly grown up : many of the spots we marked are excellent spots to pick up chicks...18 yrs old chick :( ! So I updated the map during the past weeks, with the help of Sun's come back, and I will share the two maps with you, so that, whatever age you may be, you'll find what you're looking for ;) !

Of course this map's not exhaustive, and I did not take tourist girls into account (maybe I should have...but with a third category the map would have became hard to read, and if you're looking for places the sexy tourist girls may be just check the must see spots :) ). Well, enought talking, here comes the goods :

Cute chicks in Paris !

Spring's coming in Paris !

Spring in parisWinter's gone ! The sun's been shinning for a whole week now in Paris, and even if it's just the beginning of spring and if some gloomy days are still to come : it's already great to have such a weather :)

It all started a week ago : the sun was shinning when I woke up...weird. I had my breakfast as usual, got a shower as usual, suited up as usual, and got out of my flat to go to work as usual...I noticed the second weird thing as soon as I had one foot outside the building : the temperature was nothing close to cold, watching a digital pharmacy sign I learned it was higher than 10°C (50°F)...nice :) ! Temperature

The day after that, same scenario...and one additional great spring features : skirts :) !!! I saw ladies wearing skirts from time to time as I walked in the town...smells like summer's coming :) ! To tell you the truth I even started again to lunch outside, in a little park, just to enjoy the sun and the pleasant show of people passing by with a smile on their face. Maybe I may even start again to take pictures of my beloved town and post them here ;) ...I guess I surely will :) (so keep tuned ;) ).
