Fantastic. It would be great to have some one who knows their way around!

Which part of Paris are you in?
Hi Yvonne and Ailsa, I will be in Paris for a year come the end of this month and would love to meet up with both of you. i wil be in the South West-ish part of paris for a French-Swedish family. Am really looking forward to it, but also know no-one when i arrive, apart from jelena, another au pair I met on this. if either of you have facebook, feel free to add me, it doesn't bring me up on search engines, so if you type in 'UWS 6ths' - I am the administrator to that group. Hope to hear from both of you soon.xxx
Or add me to msn - firstname.lastname@example.org
hey dominic i just added you on facebook.that would be cool as i dont know anyone here yet....am here for nearly 2 months....whats the name of your town where you'll be stayin??x
I'm French so I know Paris and if I can council something, it's to visit another part of France during your "holidays" because of course Paris is nice but noisy and not really... green...
I live in South of France, near Lyon and I've visited parts of France and Strasbourg, Provence... are the best places of France!! Beautiful landscapes and some little old town!
Really, knowing something else than Paris, I can say you that now, I like it just 2 weeks, no more... Then , I need my country place, near town and all commodities, with charming villages very dynamic, with lots of "vogues" in summer.
So Enjoy France!! (and not only Paris) You'll see that most of French, (particularly in South), love France but hate Paris, but of course, we may go in Paris once in our life!!!!!!
Bon séjour à Paris!

Hello there! I am also moving to Paris in September and will be staying in the city centre, next to the Eiffel Tower (lucky me!!). I don't know anyone, so I would love to arrange some coffee meetings/exploring weekends! I don't yet have my France mobile number, but my email address is email@example.com
I will be in Paris for a minimum of 12 months!
hi all, i am actually starting with a family on the 31st of august, so will be going there in a couple of weeks.
i will be living about 10 mins from the centre of paris, and im really excited and scared. i am 21 yrs old and would love to get to know some people before i go and hopefully would like to meet up and try and make a few friends, someone where i can practise my aweful french and basically to have someone going through the same thing and be able to talk about it and share stories would be amazing. so you can add my on face book, or on hotmail, or email me, it would be amazing to hear from you!

Ailsa et al,
I am coming to the Paris area (St Germain en Laye) with my first au pair placement at the beginning of December, and I am incredibly nervous, but it looks like there are a lot of au pairs in the area! I would love to get together and practice my french (currently it is tres mal). Also, I will have weekends off, and as I am from the United States (WI) I want to explore France with people!
I'm a US citizen and future Paris-area Au pair this fall (Sept 09), as well. I'd love to find fellow French explorers (and walk through all the preparatory paperwork together) online before heading over to Paris.
Who's got the facebook??
