A picnic by the Seine River

IMG_2212 IMG_2182 IMG_2176 IMG_2157 IMG_2144_editIMG_2195 IMG_2200 IMG_2213The Aussies and Kiwis have their good ol’ barbeques. The French? They picnic. And they do it in families, as a couple, alone, in groups of girls, even in groups of guys. They are unashamed about it. I love that about the picnic culture here.

Every picnic needs to have at least one baguette, some wine, cheese and fruit. We added saucisson to our picnic fare (it’s a type of cured sausage). Find a nice shady spot by the Seine and voila, we’ve just had ourselves a picnic ala Français!
