FINDING NATURE AROUND ANGOULEME
During each visit to the department I come from in France, Charente, I try to discover natural spaces that I didn’t know. I have observed more and more paths being created, maintained and marked, as well as resources to find them.
About 50.000 people live in Angouleme. Even in a town that is not very big and has parks, people seem to need and enjoy a deeper immersion in nature.
“La coulee verte”, http://www.angouleme-tourisme.com/la-coulee-verte, follows the meandering river Charente. It is flat, wide and accessible to both walkers and bikers. During the spring, different tones of green colors, delicious scents from blooming trees and birds singing offer a complete refreshment of our senses and mind. There are no mountains here but beautiful nature at our doorstep.
