Hey guys! So several things happened this week that I never expected to happen EVER in my life.
Happy Friday everyone! So now that I’ve shown you what I do on a day-to-day basis, I want to show you what I do on my day off. On my days off I can generally be found wandering Paris in the rain. Paris in the rain – yes, an undoubtedly cliché photo subject, but certainly … Read more
This week found me wandering around Paris as usual, but this time in my favorite neighborhood ever, Le Marais. I also made some time to check out my town’s local castle, which was built in 1122.
Being my typical indecisive self, I couldn’t pick the my favorite Saturday Snapshot; so readers, will you help a girl out?
I know that the Seven Super Shots were like, so 10 months ago, but I am an official travel blogger now (kind of) so here are mine. It seems I really enjoy contributing to internet memes in a belated fashion, like when I did my ABCs of Travel this September. Without further ado, my seven super shots! … Read more
It has been cloudy all week so the only pictures I took this week were at the at the farmers market. I know, no excuses play like a champion, but it’s honestly really hard to take a good photo in this grey Parisian weather!
I was actually quite happy with the results considering the vendors were so happy to be photographed. Here are my top three favorites… can you help me narrow it down by voting? As always I love reading your comments below.
There are few things I love in France more than the open-air markets. There’s just something about the beautiful produce, friendly vendors and shameless people-watching that I adore. I have been to the markets many times but never with a camera in tow. To my surprise and delight the vendors were more than happy to … Read more
Hey everyone, happy Saturday! So I’m back in Paris after a lovely weekend in the north of France. It’s nice to be home (well, back to my temporary home anyway.)
So basically any spare time I had off from my au pair job this week I spent wandering around Paris, taking lots of photos and stopping for bistro sandwiches. It was lovely.
In case you haven’t noticed my obnoxious excitement all over Facebook, Twitter and beyond, I’m officially working as a nanny in France. Thanks for reading and I’m glad to have you along for the journey!
This week took me to Nord-Pas-de-Calais, a rain and apple-filled region on the French-Belgian border.
Speaking of apples, the family I work for owns an apple farm there, which is where we stayed for two nights. When I asked the grandfather how long the farm had been in the family, he said, “Well, we have a map from 1820 that has our name on the property, so at least that long.”
Hey everyone, happy Saturday! First a few blogging points:
Sorry I have messed with the design of this website so much this week, dear readers! I have been trying to think of a tagline and design that represent me as a writer/blogger, and I think “one travel-obsessed girl living around the world” pretty much sums it up.
So I have some big (and good) news! One – I received my au pair visa in record time and ended up buying my ticket to France yesterday. I will be leaving in 10 days and I am beyond excited. Secondly, and please excuse the exclamation points – my dad surprised me with an early … Read more
