The internet can make everything look shiny and perfect, but I'm really interested in the (messy) process behind the scenes - the how and why. Sprint presents a five-day process (map, sketch, decide, prototype, test) for solving tough problems from the three partners at Google Ventures. #thesprintbook #sprintbook Cover design by @jessicahische. More of my recent/favorite reads at #PAVreads . 📚

For our last hurrah in #Nantes we headed to Île de Versailles to check out the magical Japanese garden. 🌸 More adventures 👉 #nanasanantes #PAVnantes

Le Lieu Unique ("the unique space" ) is a creative art space housed in the former Lu biscuit factory in #Nantes . We went for the photo booth and stayed for lunch. Such a cool venue! Can you spot the invader? 👾 #nanasanantes #PAVnantes #lelieuunique

15th century Chateau de Ducs de Bretagne, once inhabited by Anne of Brittany. #Nantes #nanasanantes #PAVnantes #chateaudeducsdebretagne

My love of travel posters x fave illustrator @jean_jullien = awesome way to discover #Nantes ! Scroll for more. 👉 @levoyageanantes @lenidnantes #PAVnantes #lenidnantes

Views from @lenidnantes, atop le Tour Bretagne. #Nantes Expect a queue to get up (& to pay 1€) to catch the sunset. #nanasanantes #PAVnantes #lenidnantes

Atop the tallest building in #Nantes lies a giant nest known as Le Nid, which was born out of the imagination of French illustrator @jean_jullien. Entry is 1€ to get up to the 32nd floor and drinks come with a view. Don't be fooled by the empty eggs (seats), we waited for it to clear out. 🐣

Back to #Nantes coverage after our awesome girls weekend! 👉 #nanasanantes #PAVnantes 📍
I was SO impressed by @levoyageanantes tourism. Popped into the local tourism office and picked up 2 great free maps, their website is beautifully designed, and the coolest thing is that there is literally a green line running through town which you can follow at any point for the recommended route (swipe right for proof!). It's the perfect way to get lost. ❎

What a week of unlikely experiences! Remember jumping into a ball pit as a kid? Turns out it's even more fun as an adult! To celebrate @colette's 20th anniversaire they invited @snarkitecture to install one of their now famous "beaches& #34; inside the main hall of @lesartsdecoratifs! Sure it looks good in photos but it's a complete blast to experience in person (albeit more of a workout that one would imagine!). It's free to visit and open daily until March 25.
Can't guarantee there won't be a queue though...

Another look inside the Les Machines de l'Île Nantes. The artistic endeavor that celebrates Nantes' industrial history was born out of the imagination of François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice, and is described as a crossroads of Jules Verne's "invented worlds" and Leonardo da Vince's mechanical universe. Swipe for slideshow.

I saw a giant elephant and got to pilot a mechanical piranha on the carousel. It was awesome. How was your weekend?!? 🐘🐡
