Understanding French life is a lifelong journey of mine. I’ve been in love with all things français since that very first French class in grade 4. While everyone dreaded going, I’d cling to my desk to hear my teacher simply speak. French just has to be one of the most beautiful languages out there.
On my most recent travels to Paris, I devoted myself to finding quintessential Parisian charm and immersing in true Parisian living. Our studio apartment was in the 5th arrondissement, and in the heart of the Latin Quarter. It couldn’t have been more perfect. In a village of small winding roads, our apartment was off Boulevard Saint Marcel, and our entrance just steps to sweet-smelling boulangeries on every corner. Each morning, I would open our balcony doors to take this all in and each night stumble back home into this very quaint and local neighbourhood.
