About me

Let's visit some of the greatest museums and exhibitions worldwide, taste french regional delicacies in open air markets, grab a good bottle of wine and drink it by the Seine river, go vintage shopping and get philosophical like Parisians do! I recently got my Master's in Architecture and decided to leave sunny Greece and move to beautiful Paris in order to work as a designer. I never lose a chance to travel, especially when this includes meeting new people and not only for vacations! I've visited 10 countries as a professional, a volunteer, a participant in projects and seminars and who knows what's next :) I am looking forward to show you the real Paris of its people!

Hello everyone ! I'm so excited about meeting you all and getting to explore my wonderful city with you ! My name is Myriam, I was born and raised in Paris. I've lived in Los Angeles for the past four years. Living away from home truly has made me fall in love with Paris all over again as I can see it with different eyes now. I'm an actress, writer and painter. I'm super passionate and curious about all forms of expression and anything that's mind expanding. There's so much to do with this wonderful life ! I also love exploring nature and getting in touch with that part of ourselves, which I believe deeply helps us put things in perspective and achieve some great levels of self-love and inner peace. I'm also passionate about self development and I love meeting new people to share stories and insights, there's so much we can learn from each other. Let's go on some adventures !

I'm from Buenos Aires but now it's been almost 2 years since I've been living in Paris. I've also lived one semester in England while I was studying. I love travelling, meeting new people, trying different food and learning different languages (I speak spanish, english, french and I have some notions of german and italian). I also love painting, drawing, writing, reading, photography and music of course! I fell in love with Paris back in 2007 and before definitely moving here I came 5 times a tourist. I used to say I wouldn’t really want to live here because I was afraid it would become too familiar and not so beautiful anymore. But it didn’t. I keep on walking around the streets with my eyes wide open, admiring everything this city has to offer. I keep on discovering new places and confirming that my decision of moving here was the best decision I could have made. For me Paris is just the most beautiful city in the world!

I am a Canadian living in Paris. I enjoy swimming and biking as well as attending theatre performances and concerts. I like to explore unknown places and meet new people. I am curious and enthusiastic. Paris for me represents a place where one can discover things about themselves all while learning about history and culture.
