Yes, you heard that right - free stuff to do in one of the most expensive cities in Europe. They do exist! With Parisian rents, living costs, food prices, travel prices, etc, etc, you want as much free stuff as possible. Here’s a few ideas for the weekends where you might have spent too much on...

My girlfriend is from the same town as me, and when she recently went home for a visit, she spent an evening at my family’s house, where everybody ate a massive roast (prepared by my mum, who has ruined quite a few foods for me because I know I’ll never be able to cook them as well) and played...

On the 21st February I move out of my home in Avignon. The last six months have been nothing short of an adventure, to say the least. I have grown to love this city like an old friend and I feel like even now I still fall in love a little bit more every day. From the way the white stone buildings reflect...

The end of January and the beginning of February was a very fun time in my year abroad, as I had back to back visitors before France’s February vacation. On the last weekend of January, my boyfriend came to visit and feeling that I had probably already dragged him around too many Lille sites,...

If any of you have been following the ups and downs of my blogs, you’ll be glad to know my time in Paris has significantly improved since my last installment. After working at a French office for nearly a month now - the first month always passes quickly - I’ve started to settle into my role...

They hate sitting down on buses. I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve been sitting at the back of a bus, surrounded by empty seats, watching people squeeze themselves like sardines into the very middle of the bus, crushing themselves between prams and tripping over onto old ladies every...

It really does feel strange knowing I’m leaving France so soon. I know I’ve been lucky enough to stay a bit past the end of my placement with work, but its flown by. Before the last of the semester one Erasmus bunch left, my best friend and I decided to spend a few days in Paris for my birthday...

Saturday the 14th January was a day like any other winter day in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais. A grey mist hung in the sky, the temperatures hovered just above freezing and the streets did not seem as inviting as the warmth of my bed. However, on the 14th of January 2017, I was dragged out of bed to go to...

Paris is the city of love, museums, the Seine, romance and baguettes… It is also, unfortunately, a city of exorbitant rent prices, pickpockets, scammers and pollution. In case you hadn’t guessed thus far, my start to life in Paris has not been the smoothest of rides. In the hope that some...

Depending on what type of placement you’re doing on your year abroad, you should have free time and hopefully the money from the Erasmus grant to do some travelling. I was in Lyon which is a very well-connected city to travel around France as well as there being very cheap flights to travel to...
