Paris, Je T'aime

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try tomorrow."

Well today was that day. I landed in Paris, well Ryanair call it Paris but Beauvais is 2 hours away by bus. So here I was in Paris, on my first solo trip. I really did not know what to expect or what I was going to do for the next 3 months or even if it was going to be a 15 month trip or not. That was a lot of "or"'s but that just shows how little I knew at this stage.

All I knew was that I really wanted to go to Paris again. I love this city so much. After that, well, it was honestly up to the Gods to decide. If I passed my exams I would be going to do a Masters course in September.

If I don't get the results I need it would not be the end of the world as I have already signed a contract with an accountancy firm who may let me start in November or the October of next year, thus giving me 15 months to play around with. If I had the 15 months I was going to head to Zambia to work in the little village of Maamba as a teacher. So either an way the wind blows I was gonna be happy.

So after a long stroll around the city, I decided to sample the culture by going to a traditional French café on the street for lunch, so naturally enough I ended up in an Indian restaurant on the street...as you do. There were the most fierce thunder storms that I had ever heard today but that still did not stop me from wearing my shorts and t-shirt. I was on holiday after all.

 

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
