Moving to Paris - Travel Nostalgia

I shot this in the last week of February and by the time I had finished editing it, it no longer felt appropriate to post what with everything going on around the world. I waited a few months and now it's weird to even watch what I made.

    First off your parents look very cool and interesting, have you done any videos on them? Secondly, this was filmed on a phone? The quality is great, must be a good one, what phone do you have if I may ask?

    This makes me miss the times I jumped on a plane and moved to a new country alone. That experience is something I wish everyone did at least once. For just a month or two. I would not be who I am without those trips.

    I watched every minute of this video with such an intrigued! It was so refreshing to see everything real, your talking in the background, how you go through everything, see the struggles but at the same time it was so inspiring to see! It is also my very deep dream to live in Paris. I fell in love with it while being there many times in the past already, but always there is something that keeps me from just packing and going to live there the next day, just like that (as I imagine many times in my head) . But I guess you need to have a plan and leave things well behind you. I hope and believe I will experience the same as you show in this video! Thank you because I feel one little step closer to my dream.

    Moving to a new country is such an incredible experience! I did the contrary, I moved from France to the US. The way I felt in the plane was unique, I was so excited, a bit scared, happy, I just enjoyed the fact of not knowing what was waiting there for me! Hope you enjoy the everyday French life :)

    Yes! You encapsulated the experience of being a new expat perfectly. When I first moved to Rome in 2017, I felt like a newborn baby learning how to do the most mundane, simple tasks. I was lucky enough to already have a community in-country to help me out at first, but what a learning curve! It's thrilling and exhausting all at the same time. I've since moved back to the States, but can't wait to experience that again

    When I first moved to Paris I was terrified and overwhelmed, and my anxiety and fear got the better of me for about a month. So the first month was horrible. But then I decided that I couldn’t go on like that, so I told myself, either I go home and give up, or I change my approach and transform this into an adventure. Going home and living with that regret was NOT an option (i would hate myself if I gave up) so I chose the latter! With a lot of determination and constant check-ins with myself to make sure I was not sinking into negativity and fear again, I ended up having the time of my life and it altered the course of my life - met my husband in Paris, started a career in Paris, etc!
