Perfect Preparation for Paris Playlist

by Anna Blanch on July 30, 2010

 After discovering some other playlists and taking your advice and comments on yesterday’s post– I put together my own little Parisian playlist to play while I’m getting organised for the grand Parisian adventure! Adventure? listen to me,how far I’ve come since yesterday! I’m going to try hard to make it as much of an adventure as possible! I’m going to learn some French, enjoy an amazing city, do a little editing of my own writing (the two conference papers due first up in September) and try to soak up the atmosphere! I’m really grateful for the external funding that’s allowing me this opportunity. Sometimes this academic thing opens some pretty crazy shaped doors and windows.

    Great playlist! Can I also recommend anything by Françoise Hardy, but especially "Tous Les Garçons"?
