So turns out living in Paris is pretty awesome. I had been warned that everything is slower in France when it comes to getting things set up. So we came in with low expectations but we’ve been very happy with how things are coming together. (We still don’t technically have a bank account, cell phone, or place to live, so maybe I am being optimistic.) I have to give credit to Anne from PretaVoyager (she is also a Design Sponge editor) who we hired to help us look for apartments and act as a translator. She is so helpful and awesome. There are things on the burner so hopefully by the end of this week we will have all three.
Here are some pictures Paul took in the neighborhood we are staying, Montemarte. The first few are pictures of our building (and the six flights of stairs) plus the view from the balcony.
