Wanderlust is a little social wonderland in southeast Paris on the docks of a big, green wonderful building (Cité de la Mode et du Design). Have you been? It’s fantastic. The photobooth that dwells there currently is like the one at Bonton. Both equally fantastic. These pictures were taken when O and I stopped by one of Rubi’s hair workshops.

The Flower Walk

Paris’s Promenade Plantée– also known as the Coulée Verte– is often compared to New York’s highline, as it is a  lovely green stroll in the middle of the city. Spanning across the 12th district of Paris, the Coulée Verte reaches a total of 4.5 kilometers, all the way from Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes, following the old Vincennes rail line. Interestingly enough, the Promenade Plantée’s elevated park was the only one of it’s kind for many years when first constructed in the early 90’s  (source).

Part of what is so unique about this flower walk are the ups and downs through buildings and parks and tunnels… with several different atmospheres, views and Parisian personalities…. all on one fantastic flowery walk!

I find this to be one of the most charming places in Paris. It is different than any other stroll, and you can see so many different landscapes of one beautiful city on a clearly laid out path. You can cross the entire thing, or you can start somewhere in the middle and wander either way, the choice is yours! The flowers will be ready to greet you and make you smile. When down in the tunnels you won’t feel like you’re in a city anymore, and when you cross the Jardin de Reuilly you’ll probably be urged to stop and have a picnic there on the seemingly fresh green grass contrasting so nicely with the beige Parisian buildings and the  blue sky. It’s just wonderful.

The Promenade Plantée is open daily from 9am to 8pm or 9pm depending on the season.

Bonne promenade!

…Sweet Home

Denver skyline, Home, Rocky Mountains

Oh, Denver. You’ll always be my home. I think about how pretty and full of life you are sometimes, and also about how little I know you. I look forward to coming back and discovering more of your treasures and your urban spunk.

Do you have more than one home? I feel like it’s something that is so common nowadays. Or maybe I’m just now realizing it while experiencing such a thing. We are global citizens at times, instead of belonging to one single place. It’s so exciting.

Gray Skies

It hasn’t really felt like summer in Paris yet. The gray skies every other day make it hard to feel like it’s June. Then again, I’ve never spent a summer in Paris, so perhaps this is the usual. Something about the gloom with the Parisian buildings is so gosh darn charming. I hope everyone’s last-week-in-June-week is going swimmingly!

Don’t forget to follow De quelle planète es-tu on Facebook for oodles of Paris things and random pretties!

…And also feel free take a gander at my article on Untapped Cities for the Tumult Event with yummies by Omnivore. You’ll be drooling!

CDM is for Champs de Mars

Eiffel Tower

A view like this really makes me feel spring. No matter how touristy the Eiffel Tower is, it’s still where the locals hang… and I love it.

I hope your Monday is starting off right!
