Paris by jgarber
I'm studying: French
For my year abroad I went to: Paris, France.
While I was there I: Did two internships, at the law firm SJ Berwin and the advertising agency CLM BBDO.
Five words to describe my year away are: Time for exploration and self-discovery.
My top tips for anyone going there are: Watch where you are walking, people do not clean up after their dogs! When you walk into a shop, say "hello". The onus appears to be on the customer to greet the shopkeeper, not the other way around.
Don't leave without: Mince pies, something the French don't eat at Christmas time!
The best night out is: There are lots of great bars and clubs, try Favela Chic or Andy Wahloo.
When your parents visit: Go for a picnic in the Bois de Boulogne.
My favourite lunch place: Amarino, who says you can't have ice-cream for lunch?
My best place for a hot date: Cycling along the Seine on the vélibs at night, and wandering around the bridges when the building are all lit up.
On a Sunday: Go to the theatre.
The most useful website I found was: www.billetreduc.com is amazing for student-friendly deals for theatre, exhibitions, anything really.
If you want to fit in quickly, you should: say"genre" as much as you would say "like" in English.
