Yes, thats the word! Canicule – you’ve seen it every where today. It just mean that the weather is so hot today you’ll feel like you’re in the desert! But we can make the best of it with some open air swimming pools right?

#Canicule2015 is in full swing ladies and gents – I literally felt the heat from the pavement burning my feet just now – Oh I wish I want to jump in an ocean right now!

You may not be liking the heat much either. So what to do?

Even though you’re in no way close to an island sea or ocean in some exotic location – but you’re in Paris and a lot of people could kill for that! – you can still escape the heat (for a bit!)

So here how to have your cake and eat it too (with lots of water) – LET’S GO TO THE OUTDOOR PUBLIC POOLS.

They are rather hygienic and I’ve tested a few. Here are six pools that will make you feel a bit cooler – really – all while cooling off.

Most pools are 3 or 4 Euros to enter.
