"It's like going into a new world"
Life in the city can can be daunting. A never ending list of things to do keeps the stress on a leash. Follow Marion and Jimmy as they take advantage of the closeness between the city and nature to get away. A short bike ride to eco-friendly, luscious gardens and canoe adventures around the corner give them a balance they’ve been seeking. Being alone with nature is never further away than putting on your running shoes and not stopping until you get there.
