Paris syndrome hits hard when it comes to apartment hunting, especially when you realize just how competitive it is to find a decent place to live in the city. If you’re a foreigner here there are so many unnecessary hurdles to jump over and so many obstacles put in place that are borderline xenophobic. In this post I’m going to be sharing with you all the steps I had to go through to find my apartment in the city centre. Brace yourselves, it’s gonna be a long one.
Let’s Talk About University! My Experiences Studying in Dublin VS Paris
Recently on facebook I saw pictures from my old classmates that they had graduated college in Ireland. I had no idea that the graduation season was upon us already but congratulations to anyone who got their degree!
Unfortunately graduation isn’t really a big event in France. There’s no celebration where you dress up and wear the cute hats and old-timey cloaks. Nothing is really organised within the university as a big event, or at least not by the university anyway. You basically just finish your exams in May, hope to get your degree in the post over the summer and off you go.
Ive been studying in Paris for two years now and this year marks my final year. Today I decided to make a post about what its like studying in France since its basically taking up my whole life recently. Hopefully if any of you are thinking about studying abroad or are just curious, the post will help you out!
What I’ve Been Up To During My Favourite Month of the Year in My Favourite City
Happy November! Welcome to a long overdue blogpost. It’s been forever since I updated my blog and I feel like all throughout the month of October I’ve been completely absent from social media compared to most other months. I’ve been doing my best to make the most of the month of October in Paris so here is everything I’ve been up to lately!
Here I am back in Paris and back to my daily routine of taking the metro, climbing a million steps as I run up and down the streets of Montmartre and drinking my weight in coffee just to stay awake as I strike the balance between running my blog, working and studying all at the same time. For today’s post I wanted to talk about some goals I have laid out for the content I want to put out this year!
The Guinness Storehouse is no doubt at the epicentre of Dublin’s must-see cultural and historical landmarks. Any Irish person can tell you all about how the beer has made a name for us all over the world and it’s not just an old reliable on a night out in an Irish pub, it’s also probably the most globally renowned symbol of Ireland to ever hit the international market. Go to any big European city, any Irish bar in the United States or even in North Africa and Asia and you won’t struggle too hard to find a Guinness.
Having grown up in and around Dublin my entire life, I never really took the time to hop on the Luas and visit the factory where this world famous beer is made, besides what do you do when you’re from Ireland and you’re already well acquainted with everything there is to know about the iconic stout? Well…you take advantage of the photo opportunities of course.
