I’m leaving Paris in just over four weeks.  How ridiculous is that?  After Christmas I really didn’t want to come back, but after a few weeks everything fell into place and then I didn’t want to imagine having to leave.  Paris still winds me up and I’m definitely done with the metro, but I’m not done with flaneuring (I made that verb up) around Paris.  I have definitely fallen in love.  Thankfully the weather is starting to brighten up which makes wandering around and enjoying the city’s parks much more pleasurable.  I have a list of things to do before I leave but in general I just want to soak in as much Frenchness as possible, and make the most of my time left.

I realise I’ve been quite quiet as of late.  I kept meaning to write another post and something (like scrapbooking or stroking my cats) would come up and distract me.  I don’t think I even have anything very interesting to say right now, but it’s nice to keep things regular! Last weekend I was lucky enough to have another best friend, Georgia, come and visit. We had such a lovely time sightseeing, having the odd drink outside in the sunshine and generally just catching up and having a laugh. It made me realise how much I’ve missed being close to my friends and how lucky I am to have such great people in my life (cheese)! Here are some photos of our weekend:

Seeing as I’m all grown up and independent now and have taken to doing a little bit of travelling by myself, I think I’m going to add a ‘travel’ section to my blog. Here you’ll be able to read about my trip to Lyon, my day trip to Chartres and my day tour in Champagne. I love to travel and I’ve found that by doing it solo, I’ve met more people and become more confident!

I have four weeks left and I plan to make the most of every single day. I’m excited to come home and be able to recommence life with my friends, family and boyfriend, but a part of me will be so so sad to leave Paris… I might even cry!
