This blog post was originally shared summer of 2014:
Yesterday I officially welcomed you to Paris with an OUTFIT POST, but as I mentioned I plan to start sharing the many different locations I visit in Paris. First I wanted to start with sharing my Airbnb location with you. I am currently located in the 20th Arrondissement of Paris, which is the last neighborhood as they start at 1 and go all the way to 20. It’s very much like east Bushwick to compare to New York at the moment, there is a lot of young night life, but still a lot of old Parisian neighborhood life to be found here.
My flat is a 6 floor walk up (yeah, my legs will love me after my month here), and I am staying with a lovely older women by the name if Alice. Location wise, I’m right off of the 2 metro that quickly connects me to anywhere in the city. In my neighborhood just within 5 minute walking distance I have so many lovely areas to explore like the church outside my window and Belleville Park (soon to have it’s own post because it’s so beautiful).
On my first day wandering around I was amazed by the beauty that is around each corner. It’s like Paris can do no wrong, even in their last neighborhood that’s on the border line of gentrification. I have yet to explore all of my neighborhood, as I’ve only been here for four days so far, but stay tuned for another update from my stay in the 20th Arrondissement.
