coucou / kuku/ (familiar) Hi there!


Coucou !  Welcome to my personal blog.

A few months ago, I made the decision to uproot myself and pursue a lifelong dream to live in Paris for a year.  I arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport about three weeks ago with everything I could stuff into one large suitcase and a carry-on backpack.  (I’m still mourning all the pairs of shoes I had to leave behind.)

I decided to start this blog as a way to record and share my adventures as I try to navigate life among the descendants of the Gauls.  After years of drafting mass e-mails, posting travel anecdotes to third-party websites, and even blogging for work, I thought it was time to begin a proper personal chronicle of my own.  I’ll be writing about my experiences in Paris, of course, but I’ll also be including stories, photos and excerpts from other adventures as well.

Thank you for reading.  I hope you enjoy it.
