To those who don't have Summer Holidays... Time to enjoy Paris!
Sad because you can't go on vacations? You're in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, so here you'll find the first of several articles of MUST SEE PLACES , EXHIBITIONS and Restaurants in Paris during the summer time.
Even if you see me drawing and writing... well it's not my real job. I do it for fun now, but since 7 months I'm working in a very polyvalent position in a High Standing Parisian Palace and one of my job is to be a back-office Concierge.
This means that until the arrival of the guest, i have to organise every detail, propose amazing places, restaurants... And i was thinking to share all of this knowledge with you guys, you, yes, stucked in Paris like me to work hard and to see the rest of the world leaving on vacancies.
This going to be one of a long serie of articles that will talk about non-touristics places where to go, nice restaurants to try (or not to try!!!), exhibitions, free activities, gardens, activities that might make your month of August more enjoyable. Let's begin.
1. Practice Gym for free in the Parisian Gardens (August Only)

After the main entrance, in the frontal large lawn-grass (on the right of the lake) you can practice for free one hour of Swedish Gym. The course is completely free, there's good music (very useful for the mood) and a professional teacher all along.
You work on your legs, arms, abs, stretching and relaxation. the only thing you need is your gym shoes and you might want to bring a mat.
