Memories of Suresnes!!!

And going back, will update this post on a memorable spot in my life. As my blog is part wholly of my life, let me tell you about a place I worked for a couple of years and still with good friends in touch even coming for visits to me in my new Morbihan. I like to tell you about my hangouts in Suresnes, Hauts de Seine dept 92 in the Île de France region of my belle France. Hope you enjoy as I.

I had my thrill of getting my father at CDG airport coming back from a visit to his sister in Fla USA.  As my trip was of course my car, the best way to travel anywhere! We took off on the N12 ,A12, A13, D7 all the way to our hotel in Suresnes ,just for a one night rest before getting to CDG at T2E for the AF flight direct non stop.  And we chose the Campanile Pont de Suresnes as it was the city where I once worked! Of course, bringing back many nice moments.

The hotel was small rooms as usual, minimum bare amenities so only good for the one night, the breakfast at 9,50€ was too much for the continental breakfast buffet offered; the parking was one of the narrowest I have taken here and have a few::: the only good thing was the location right by the pont de Suresnes over was the Bois de Boulogne and Porte Maillot Paris ! For reference the Campanile hotel webpage: https://paris-ouest-pont-de-suresnes.campanile.com/en-us/

Always passed by the hotel , never entered and finally on this visit used it, not that great…. We did went up to Mont Valérien (see post)  with a view of Paris and the American Cementary at Suresnes, (see post) from the French side a mémorial to those executed there by the Nazis. A moving moment we used to go often and even picnic around it

I will put some webpages here for reference ,first on the Mont Valérien that has the best views to Paris around! Also, a great memorial to the fallen for France: webpage: http://www.mont-valerien.fr/

And from the American cementery to the Fallen from WWI and WWII;  webpage: https://www.abmc.gov/cemeteries-memorials/europe/suresnes-american-cemetery

We walked around the town for me nice memories of a good company and friends that still in touch, one must move on for better without forgetting the old good moments, and Suresnes was a very good moment.  The wonderful hotel de ville architecturally stunning, the levies on the Seine,(see post)  the pont de Suresnes, and our lunch /dinner hangouts.

One such nice lunch place was the oriental Lotus d’Or restaurant; same wonderful folks and great oriental food. The Suresnes tourist office webpage: https://en.suresnes-tourisme.com/lotusdor.html

The Charlie Birdie on the quais looking at the Seine and Bois de Boulogne, has closed (as those in Paris), so here just for the memories. My favorite bakery in town for those sweets and the fast formule Au pain de Suresnes at 8 Pl du Général Leclerc brings good vibes too.

This is it, another time in tinsel town ,city of lights and the memorable return to my place of Suresnes. And of course great public transports to leave my car in the basement garage at work and just go over quick to Paris by metro, bus or tramway…. for more enjoyment!  And of course from Suresnes why not drive into the Bois de Boulogne and see the Grand Cascade, the Hippodrome Longchamps, the Moulin, the wonderful Fondation Louis Vuitton, the wonderful Auberge du Bonheur, and the wonderful again Jardin d’Acclimatation that my kids remember when younger taken the petit train still there!!! and the ladies still doing their hustle at 7PM (19H) lol!!! Some post on the above in my blog.fyi
