Welcome to my blog! I wont be doing a cheesy “my name is” – instead, let me take you on some of my travels. The main idea of my blog was to write down memories and thoughts of my travels and my life in Paris, that other people one day might think of as useful. And hopefully it will allow me to keep track on the things that I enjoyed, as I’m one of those millennials that really wants to print photo albums, but in the end, never takes the time. I will probably regret this decision in the future, yes.
Actually a Dutchie, but I’m living in Paris since summer 2017. I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity during my International Business studies to stay abroad for a while (six months in Paris in 2015, 6 months in Gran Canaria in 2016 and again Paris, where I finished my studies, in 2017), but I got caught up in the Erasmus baby life and I actually never returned home (that is, only for holidays, my dogs and bitterballen).
However, what I did not realise when permanently staying in France, was that living your Erasmus abroad is not actually living abroad. You will have to deal with taxes, social security, and at some point you even get tired of your new adopted city/country, well at least from what I experienced. Let’s say I’m trying my best to be a Parisienne, including all the paperwork.
When I’m not working, I’m daydreaming about my next travels and capturing photos of everything I see. My photos are overal taken with my phone, a Huawei Mate 20, or my Canon Eos M100 camera.
