short stop in Paris

When I stopped briefly in Paris a few weeks ago, I stayed in the ever-convenient St Germain’s area. Having nothing planned for the day of arrival, I took my sandwiches and drinks to the second largest public park in Paris – the Jardin du Luxembourg. The park has a palace and the Medici Fountain, both of which exhibit strong Italian influence. I later learnt that Marie de Medicis had built the palace in imitation of that in Florence.Β IMG_0443

It’s a beautiful place to read a book and relax before the start of a week’s work. There are plenty of chairs for you to pull around and pick your favourite spot to rest. Not necessarily a tourist area, but definitely a great place to visit!
