If you had told me in September 2014 when I stepped off the plane at Charles de Gaulle airport that I would still be here over a year later, I probably would have told you that you were crazy. And yet, here I am, finishing up my internship with HiP Paris and head over heels in love with the City of Light.

After a year as an au pair, I put my world travel plans on hold to stay in Paris, and along the way found the HiP Paris internship. I was thrilled when they asked me to join the team, an opportunity to dig even deeper into the city I already loved. My main duties consisted of mostly back-end work: prepping blog posts, sourcing photos, and finding the perfect related links to interest our readers, among other things. As a blogger myself, I learned so much about how a successful blog really works, all of the behind-the-scenes aspects involved, and things I will definitely use going forward.

My favorite part, however, has been writing and photographing for the blog. Before coming to Paris, I invested in a good camera, and have been having the time of my life discovering new places in Paris to share with the HiP Paris Blog readers. Every opening and interesting event meant something new and exciting, and this internship has been a fantastic way to hone my skills and share cool parts of this amazing city.

With any luck, this won’t be the last you see from me. I’ve loved working with Erica, Editorial Director and Owner of Haven in Paris, and Erin, our HiP Editor; they’ve helped me when I needed it and pushed me to do better than what I thought was my best. But it’s time to hand over the reins to someone else in the hopes that they will have as fulfilling an experience as I’ve had.

? oh to be 20 years younger. I have great taste and write well, but could never have been described as hip, alas.

I’m sure that’s not true! 😉

Such beautiful shots. Good luck to all those applying for this. Were I a writer I definitely would. My girlfriend and I are trying to plan a trip there for her birthday next May.
