Poppy in Paris: City Tips from an Adventurous Au Pair
Inspired by France’s rich heritage, I moved to Paris as an au pair in August 2022. Au pair programs are a wonderful way of immersing yourself in a new country and sharing everyday life with a local family. Having gained a degree in theology and religion with Arabic from the University of Exeter, I am passionate about learning languages and experiencing new cultures. When I’m not working, I love to explore everything that Paris has to offer, from exhibitions and museums to restaurants and second-hand clothing stores. Follow along in my new Bonjour Paris column as I uncover some hidden gems and provide city recommendations.

    What a great first article! And very well researched. But I would love to hear about your day-to-day schedule: how you meet friends when at first, alone in Paris. Do you go to French language school? Without naming them, what is your French family like and how many children do you look after. What are your working hours. Etc etc. Best wishes and good luck Poppy.
