About Emilie

I'm a small girl with big ambitions and very little common sense it seems. I decided after I graduated from college that I would move from my little city of Lafayette Louisiana to the raging monster city that is Paris. In 4 months of planning I have now uprooted everything I had in an amazing town to live in a truly wild place where I have no idea WHAT I am going to do. But isn't that the fun of it all. So here is cheers to getting lost, breaking hearts, starving, and many wonderful adventures that come along with finding yourself.

    I am very happy for you, being so lucky as to live where I only dream to, please dont take this question as an attack, but how is it so many americans can just up and move to Paris? Its so annoying! I only live in the UK, a mere hour on the plane away, but there is absolutely no way I could afford it, unless I had a lottery win.

      You know I don’t know how it is that many US citizens find their way here. Personally I came here as a student in 2010 and then after 2 years of study I formed a cultural project that allows me to live here for three years. For others I know many that work here, have followed loved ones, many of my friends have retired here and there are also many Americans that just come here with no papers. It sounds so clandestine i know! But Paris is a cash city and you can work and live very easily without leaving any trail. I have some American friends that have lived here for 30 years,with no papers, don’t speak french and have never any problems. As for the cost of living. Yes it astronomical groceries alone in my home cost around 40 euros a person every 4 days. But at least for your savings you have the benefit of the pounds to euro exchange so if you do make the move you’ve got that coming for you.

      Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and keep an eye out for posts about how i’ve made living in France work (from an american’s perspective).

      Thank you for your readership
