• Hi, I'm Becky! This year I'm on my gap year working as an Au Pair in Paris.

Something I find really weird about France is that it completely shuts down on Sundays! All the supermarkets around Antony where I live are closed by 1pm. Somethings aren’t even open at all! I can understand this in a small village but it’s PARIS! The capital city! Crazy..

Shakespeare and Co.

Yesterday me and a friend went to Shakespeare and company, a famous English book shop in Paris. It is so so so so so beautiful I have fallen in love. All the workers are volunteers and English speakers. I have decided that while I am here this is my local book store (it basically is, … Continue reading


When I planned my gap year in Paris I didn’t really think about it being me moving away from home, it just felt like some sort of long holiday where I worked abit and got paid. So I was totally unprepared for when my mum and step-dad said it was time for them to leave … Continue reading
