Having been in Paris a few months now, and being a little bit of a country girl at heart I felt the need for some greenery, some open space and some fresh air, so I looked at the parks on offer and decided on the one that actually advertises itself for this very purpose – The Parc de la Villette, 'a huge space waiting to be explored by city dwellers lacking oxygen!' And I wasn't disappointed! What a fantastic park, it's full of play areas, activities, innovative buildings, sculptures and... plenty of very breathable air.

Having made the (admittedly, relatively easy) decision to move to France I hopped on the Eurostar a few weeks ago and found myself living in the eleventh arrondissement, working for Feels like home in Paris, and eating a croissant a day... I am very conscious of my good fortune. I have visited Paris before with family and friends but have never lived here so I am looking forward to taking the time to get to know it thoroughly. For the moment I have been exploring this wonderful city daily and discovering new sights, sounds and (very importantly) tastes around every corner.
