Exploring Life in Paris

While in Paris last week, I found a rental apartment from a French art student through HouseTrip. Located in Saint Germaine Des Pres in the 6th arrondissement which is home to many art galleries and famous cafes, the apartment became my home base as I took up a Parisian lifestyle.
In the days, I walked the streets, ate croissants, and enjoyed late dinners. In the evenings, I worked away in the simply but tastefully decorated apartment on the 5th floor of a walk-up building. To the left of the dining room table which became my office, a window overlooked a pitter-patter of Parisian rooftops.
I ate way too much bread and drank way too much wine.
Despite the train that switched between drizzling and downright pour, I felt right at home in Paris.

  1. Le *ssiiiggghh* It's one of my goals this year or next to rent an apartment for a few weeks to a month in Paris, and do the same exact thing, eat, drink, and walk around for hours aimlessly. It's been three years since I was last there and too short of a time. Your photos made my heart soar… it's time to go back! Thanks for the HouseTrip tip/link.

  2. Now is a good time as any to get back to Paris, this trip was the first time I went back in 2 years. It was even prettier than I'd remembered.
