Paris 101.

29 Oct


As you people know (or not) I’m leaving Paris a lot sooner than I initially planned, 8 months sooner to be exact. I’ve been here for 2 months so officially and legally I’m still a tourist, but that word really insults me because I definitively don’t consider myself one. I don’t think I’m parisian either, but I think I’m a lot closer to that term. I’ve lived in a Parisian household, eaten their typical strange groceries, walked their non-touristy streets Continue reading


Shopping Days Are Happy Days.

I’ve been m.i.a for a while now and I have tons to write about because so much has happened in the last 10 days. However, I haven’t fully wrapped my mind around everything and I’m still a bit shocked and confused so words just don’t come fluently to me when I’m trying to write. Continue reading
