Paris, my home away from home.
There’s not a year that goes by without a quick Parisian reload moment. And still, every time I get off that Thalys train in Gare du Nord, my inner Parisienne heart skips a beat.
I honestly believe that everyone has a certain city which they’ll connect with for ever. For me that’s Paris. After studying, living and working in this magical French capital for more than a year, it became, sort of, part of me.
My all time favorite neighbourhood? Nope, not Le Marais, although it’s oh-so cosy and pastel pretty, but Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Nothing beats a walk from the right bank, over île Saint-Louis, straight into this artistic and vibrant Rive Gauche district. Rue de buci, Rue du dragon, Le Bon Marché, … I know this place by heart!
Of course there are many more hidden gems in the City of Lights and love, and I’ll be more than happy to share them with you.
So keep an eye open for more PAR(ad)IS.
