bon anniversaire velib!

15 July, 2011

happy friday everyone! also, it's Velib's 4 year birthday today ! Bon Anniversaire! 
riding through Paris is a madhouse but it is so much fun! i'm finally getting comfortable with the city that i'm beginning to develop "My Paris," you know, the favorite streets, neighborhoods, cafes, hangout spots, and shopping streets that we all love to go to in our own cities? well, i will show you "my Paris" soon. i cannot tell you how wonderful it is navigating my way through cobblestone streets and little alleyways to find my way around, at least i know i can always find a Velib bike. there are many roads to take to get to one place but as long as you find yourself around the Seine River, you'll always find your way or just take a break to get Berthillion ice cream on Ile Saint Louis. this weekend should be really fun as i'm taking a day trip outside Paris to Provins, a medieval town of France. i'm hoping they have Velib there that way i can ride around and enjoy the scenery.

anyone else have some exciting weekend plans? 
bon weekend!
xoxo

Be careful with your bike? The Parisians haven't discipline. I had accidents with my bike when I lived there. It is worse since velib' because the new cycling people don't pay attention to the others. But enjoy Paris, it is the best way…

@missbrooklynsnapshots, it's a little frightening riding sometimes but i definitely love riding here. i'll be sure to keep the others in mind, xoxo.
