My Paris apartment for study abroad

The idea of living in Paris might be glam but the reality of living there isn’t always as dreamy as expected. Here’s what the studio apartment I lived in looked like. It was a dark, medieval looking shoebox with a water heater right over the tub for me to bang my head on and a 2 burner stove with only 1 working burner but it did the job. The most important thing to realize is that it is only temporary arrangements and that you should only be sleeping / studying here. You’re in Paris! Don’t spend your time in your cramped room / apartment. Go out and explore! (All photos by Andrea)
