Wow JB thank you so much for your support and comments!
Yes, I definitely understand how annoying/disrespectful us tourists can be. But from my trip, I felt very grateful I was able to navigate my way in Paris and practice my French. It made me feel not necessarily like a local but similar to a local because the conversations would be solely in French (no switching to English) and we would say “bonne journée!” (mannerisms like that)
I did not know that women do more solo travel than men! So interesting!
My study abroad program in Bordeaux will end soon, so I will probably not have time to go back to Paris. However, maybe sometime in the near future! I definitely want to go back to Paris. Merci beaucoup pour l’invitation!
Thank you again for your comments!
