Simply Whitstable - Natives Abroad
Paris by Diana Suard 


Hello there Dave!

As there aren't many enrtries in Natives Abroad from continental Europe, how about one from Paris?  Below are photos showing 'mon quartier'. We moved here a few years ago from a small village  south-east of Paris. The upkeep of a big house and garden  was losing its charms.... as was being completely dependent on a car. 

We have now solved these problems as you can see from this photo of our local shops in the Avenue Daumesnil...

 

 

... and the Bois de Vincennes which provides our new "back garden" just 200 metres down the road.... 

  

  

Also close by is the Viaduc des Arts - a disused railway line converted into a landscaped walkway with arts and crafts workshops under the arches....

  

  

Finally, we have the sunset as seen from our flat....

 

   

There's only one thing missing.... sea air!  So I've added a photo of our 'back garden' when we're in Whitstable...........

Note: If you are wondering where Diana's final photo was taken, we can reliably inform you that it features the Tower Hill tea garden!
