It's been a while since the last update but I have been pretty busy. I now have a job, a new place to stay and have taken a small trip to Paris! The job
- Yay! I now have a job in Victoria (very close to Buckingham Palace) as a Customer Support Advisor. Basically I answer phones and emails about people having problems with being charged for the "glamour" content they've viewed on the internet. It's Mon-Fri, 9-5:30 and having just finished my first week I am pretty tired but it's not such a bad job. There's always something to do or someone to get angry with you so time goes pretty quickly which is good when you're only working for £8 an hour! The new place
- I've just spent my last night sleeping on a couch and I am so excited to sleep in a real bed. Although this new place is like a hostel and I will be starting out in a dorm room with 7 other people before being moved into a twin room in about a week or two. I only have to pay a week's rent in advance and it's very cheap. The
place itself isn't the nicest but will be a great way to meet new people and get out of the boys' house. I'll be looking for cheap double rooms in share houses in the meantime but have a friend coming to live in London in September so I just need something until then. Paris
- Was amazing. The city itself is beautiful but unfortunately my photos don't do it justice because as we were going to see all the sights it would start raining. The weather was really weird for the 3 days I was there. The morning was gorgeous and then at about 3-4pm it would bucket down for about an hour and then become sunny again. Regardless it's still a very pretty city and my favourite part was walking along the River Sienne from Notre Dame to Museum de Louvre to Basilique finally ending with the Eiffal Tower. I didn't go inside any of the places as we'd been walking for about 8hrs and the queues were massive. The only place we went inside were the Cattacombes which is like a mass buriel site underneath the city. It's very dark and creepy with bones literally just stacked
on top of each other along hallway after hallway. It goes for about 2km! I did however eat croissants and baguettes and they were amazing. There are patisseries everywhere and very little western world influences like fast food places. For a major city the place is very French. I was surprised at how little English was spoken, especially in restaurants. The french people also aren't the biggest fans of tourists and didn't appreciate the space I took up on the train with my backpack and bag!
I hope everyone is well at home. Missing you all especially now that I know I won't be going back to the same little house in Endeavour Hills! I'll try and send a whatsapp message out to you.
Lots of love xoxo
