My Paris

It's a completely inappropriate time to be drunk and I'll tell you more tomorrow, but for now... hold on... I've just had A Moment and I realised, 'This is my Paris, this is the exact atmosphere and moment that the city conjures up for me, and only me, for always, every day and forever.'

I was leaning out of the window and listening to my iPod and I thought that maybe if I acted quick enough, I could catch the moment and share it, because I can't put it into words.

This is what my Paris looks like, forever dusk, this light, this view, these colours, this time of day and year, everything:


And this is what my Paris sounds like:



This is my Paris, exactly, completely.

  1. Your Paris sounds creepy, IMO. But to each his own. X-D -AW

  2. If you don't mind me asking, why not Night Bus?
    I'd also say that sunny Paris greatly differs from the rainy/dusky/night one. City gets old and grim when it's dark.
    But perhaps that can be said just about every megalopolis.

    2. Yeah just wanted to ask a few more questions etc and my personal situation and any suggestions you may have. Love you blog and I know you're private with your email just would prefer to speak less public (don't mean that in a weird way)

  6. Hi! I have just finished reading your blog from beginning to end! :) you are so funny! I'm from Australia and was thinking that I'd LOVE to be an au pair (even after reading some of your horror stories) and was wondering if you could tell me how you went about it? I'm a bit paranoid that even if I go through an au pair agency it might be like the film Taken and the family will keep me as a slave or something!! Thanks!! Xx

  7. Hi, glad you like the blog! I got my first au pair job on the Au Pair World website, there is always the worry they will be non-existent but you can ask to speak to them on Skype beforehand. I got my second job by looking in the FUSAC which is an English-speaking magazine in Paris, but really this is only for people who already live in Paris, as you can go for interviews and stuff. If you want to risk coming to Paris before you find a job, there are loads of au pair jobs in the FUSAC, you can look on the FUSAC online too xx

  8. Hi, nice job on your blog. Lot's of good advice and insight there. Thank you too for mentioning FUSAC. Would you be so kind as to update your post and link?
    FUSAC
    This is how I found my second job. It’s a free magazine for English-speaking expats in Paris. A good way to find a job if you are already in Paris.
    www.fusac.fr

    As your probably know we are not a paper magazine anymore, but all online and the link is http://ads.fusac.fr (the link you have currently referenced in the html goes to an old page that is no longer showing). Thanks! Your blog is still geting lots of attention, keep up the good work.
