After a childhood in the fjords of Norway, I decided to get some real city life. I chose to live in Paris for a year, which turned out to be for life. I have now been in Paris for 15 years, and I still love it.
In paris everything is possible. There is always something to do, and new people to meet. A few metro statins away you find a new ambiance and a different population. You feel like traveling every day.
After one year of getting the temperature, I decided to live in the north east part of Paris. This is the real Paris for me. A melting pot with all kinds of populations, lots of artists and openminded people. Here you will find places which are like small villages and you're not anonymous, like often in big cites. I love this area, because it is one of the greenest in Paris, It's quiet, and you have a lot of nice restaurants, and good quality shops. I go to the big open grocery market every week, and I speak with my neighbors when I meet them. Even if you stay at home doing nothing, you know that it is all there waiting for you a few stations away.
Now I decided to give you the opportunity to live the real Paris experience.
