A return to Rainy Paris

After being back in England for a month, last weekend I was headed back to Paris.Sadly it was only for a weekend, but any amount of time spent in Paris is sure to be appreciated. Despite having lived there for the past year and calling it my home, as I boarded the plane I couldn’t help but feel a little nervous. This time I was somewhat of an outsider – I was no longer the current au pair, and so it felt a little different visiting the city that had stolen my heart.

Despite these minor worries, I was super excited to get back to the city of Lights and couldn’t wait! Although the weather throughout the entire weekend was pretty awful – rain everyday – I still had a wonderful time meeting with some of my closest and dearest friends who still live in Paris, as well as spending time with my au pair family. As soon as I stepped off the metro to meet one of my French friends, I knew that I was home. There’s something about Paris that has me longing to go back. I had also missed speaking and hearing French a lot, and it was only after spending a month away was I able to appreciate how much I had learnt and could understand. Much more than I had previously thought!

Due to the dismal weather, I wasn’t able to visit most of the places I had hoped to see. So, I’m definitely going to have to go back soon to do some more exploring! But hey, who can complain – most of my weekend was spent Cafe hopping and eating some delicious food!
