6 weeks of summer in Paris – It doesn’t get much better than this

I’ve been to Paris before, many years ago, but it’s a whole different experience when you’re not hopping on and off tour buses, getting lost amongst a sea of tourists or exploring the streets of Paris through DSLR lenses.

Travelling with Australian interns to work in a French Chateau in Paris; sharing an office with colleagues from 12 different countries who speak a minimum of 3 languages; researching country developments in Thailand during the day and attending European economic classes at night (taught by an Italian lecturer) - There’s really nothing like the Paris Placement Program.
Whether it’s passing the Eiffel tower from the Metro with a French busker serenading us on the way to work, catching the bus from the OECD headquarters down Quai D’Orsay through Trocadero every afternoon, stopping by Laduree down the road for a Macaron treat before class, walking along the Seine watching the sunset at 9pm after Uni, or casually waltzing through Cathedrale Notre Dame before going home – what more could you ask for?
