Birthday Hike

hike
For Christmas my husband got me this book. It was my idea and it was a little hard to get started but I knew that on my birthday I could convince him. So we went on a 5 1/2 hour walk! The book lays out 30 walks that encircle Paris and that you can get to and from by train. It was hard towards the end our legs were giving out! I brought along nuts and dried fruit and water which was a good thing because we didn’t come across any businesses until the very end. The area was really beautiful.

A good part of the walk was along the Oise river.

This is called the Grand Axe. It cost something like 60 million to construct and took more that ten years to complete. The idea is to join architecture and nature. It was very cool the straight line with a bridge that led to a small island.
