The poor Bobo- A survival guide to Paris.

Bobo
ˈbəʊbəʊ/
noun
informal

  1. A person having both the values of the counterculture of the 1960s and the materialism of the 1980s; a bourgeois Bohemian.

Combining the free-spirited, artistic rebelliousness of the bohemian beatnik or hippie with the worldly ambitions of their bourgeois corporate forefathers, the Bobo is a comfortable contortion of caring capitalism. ‘It’s not about making money,’ writes Brooks, ‘it’s about doing something you love. Life should be an extended hobby. It’s all about working for a company as cool as you are.’”- The Guardian

Post Paris attacks

Images of love and heartbreak

Je suis pas Paris, Je suis Paix.

-“I am not Paris, I am peace”

This morning we face the aftermaths of last night’s terrifying attacks.

I woke up wondering if it had all been some horrible dream, that I wasn’t sitting by self drinking wine at 4am, talking to the press.

But unfortunately, it was all real.

Paris and Paperwork

I found a new place!

The final straw was the broken washing machine… When I found out they couldn’t fix it for another couple of months I gave in my notice and started looking for a new place ASAP.

Je suis amoureux

Je suis amoureux- I’m in love.

Not with anyone in particular… just quite literally IN love. Surrounded by love -loving this city, loving meeting new and amazing people, loving where I am at.

Ainsley about Romania

I still had some time left in Paris before I was due to start my new nanny job working afternoons. All my friends were away and I was bored, lonely, and missing adventure. More than anything, I wanted to be on, in or by the sea, soaking up the last few rays of summer and spending all day lounging at the beach while the sun was still out.

I tempted my addiction by looking on Skyscanner to see where I could afford to go anywhere. At first Cinque Terre stuck out, but after a quick look at the very limited and expensive accommodation options during high season I gave up on the idea of exploring the Italian coast and went back to my search.

How to do Romania

Romania is a culturally rich country that has a surprising amount of activities to offer to tourists, and a table-full of delicious local cuisine and must try dishes. I was blown away at how clean and green it was, and safe I felt while traveling there on my own. If your thinking of taking a visit, or simply need some inspiration for your next travel destination take a look at this brief list of what to do, where to stay and where to eat.
