It’s that time of the year again… ‘Moving Season’

I for one really dislike this 'season', it will always be really hard to see friends leave, and any expatriate will know the struggle.

(hence the 'local' part of this post) She showed me some of her favorite places to visit in Paris, and we got to chat and catch up over cups of hot chocolate and huge salads.
