Life in the Neighborhood
“Living in Paris was always something I had imagined for myself, but I wasn’t exactly sure how I would get there. After studying cinema in university and working in the film industry, I switched gears and began working for an international French company. When the opportunity to transfer my life to Paris and work at the HQ’s as an expatriate presented itself, I couldn’t have said ‘yes’ any faster! I’ve been living in Paris for over two years now and I can only say that the reality has lived up to le rêve.
I had visited Paris just a couple of times prior to moving, and I was always drawn to the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. I was lucky enough to snag an apartment just near Rue de Buci which has a myriad of amazing restaurants and wine bars frequented by both locals and tourists alike.
A few I’d recommend are le Bar du Marché, la Palette, Atlas, Chez Huguette and le Hibou. I often frequent these spots after work for a delicious meal with a glass of wine with friends to wind down for the day.
On Sundays, you can often find me taking a stroll to reset for another busy Parisian week ahead. My favorite route passes through Place Saint Sulpice where I take a moment of peacefulness inside the beautiful church. After, I often continue to the Jardin du Luxembourg. One of the most famous gardens, and beautiful during all seasons. It’s the perfect spot for a little nature inside the city.”
