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.

    Very informative. I suspect you appreciate the Institute du Monde Arabe, a favorite place. I once saw an exhibit there of the first attempt at writing. Made with a chisel in clay, the marks were simple lines, angles, and Xs to be read by future generations. It was inspiring. As is the bookstore and library. I don't know when I will next be in Paris (San Antonio, 78 years old) but I would love to visit the recylerie. Now, how about a good vegan restaurant. Keep it up. Grandpa Robert

      Hi Robert. Thank you for your comment. The Institut du Monde Arabe is a fantastic place! I am eager to attend their current exhibition "Habibi, the Revolutions of Love." I have a few good vegan spots in mind ... keep your eyes peeled!
