Jennifer has lived in the Paris region for most of her life. She spent time in Madrid and Birmingham, England, while studying, but she has always come back to the city where she feels truly at home.
Where I live:
Pantin, a close-in suburb with young creatives and families where you can find everything you need, with a slower life than in the central city.
Best way to get around the city:
Walking. It’s really the best way to feel Parisian: Get lost, find a cafe, sit and people-watch.
Don’t leave without having:
A glass of wine with a “planche,” a board with a mix of charcuterie and cheese.
But the local favorite is really:
Anything in parks, especially Buttes-Chaumont, where you’ll find people enjoying the outdoors with food, drinks and books.
If I moved, I’d most miss:
The diversity. In Europe, with the exception of London, there are few cities where there are as many different types of people as there are here. When I come back from a trip, this is the first thing I notice — and immediately feel at home again.
