In week 37 we went to Paris. Here we go afterwards to learn intuitively trend watcher. The word says it all You’ll learn things To also seen in the society but also to follow your intuition. We did it already various times in the Netherlands, but the teachers thought it was important that we learned to do this abroad. Because this is a totally different country and so you here again other people, cultures so a totally different society standing.
We left on Monday morning are from Tilburg then 6 hours bus ride to Paris. We went to St Christophers Hostel inn.At first, I am not like the hostel because I was a year ago to Berlin I’ve been in a hostel and there were public showers, it was very dirty and the beds were empty and hold you actually slept on a wooden plank. In so we got the bus schedule to hear:
Monday: Went to a kind Woonbeurs the maison and objet
Tuesday: Your itinerary, and received assignments
Wednesday: Leisure and home
There was also the coach explained that we could take three routes:
I opted for the architecture route because my background is still interest here. (Last year I graduated at the Nimeto Utrecht, direction IDEB [interior decoration and exterior protection) hence my interest in architecture. We got a list to the buildings where we were and had to go there on their own instincts. That was really fun because you yourself are preferred. Before we went to the hostel we visited the Maison-objet. This is actually proposing a large Woonbeurs only bigger and yet more exclusive than in the Netherlands. It was very nice what you do to design, colors and products saw. But it was so great that we could visit only 2 halls of the five. But I definitely inspiration from them. For our upcoming block living and Appearance.
Once arrived at the hostel I was very surprised. It was a kind of backpackers hostel so people all over the world and stayed. It was a very focused on youth hostel and was decorated very nice. The people were nice, the rooms and showers were clean and the food was to do. You cannot expect too much from a hostel but it was above me expectations. (I’m not deluxe set). Were also in the hostel evening activities organized for people to meet and have a nice evening.
The Tuesday and Wednesday we had very bad weather and had to hit the road. The architecture was very inspiring and fascinating to see. But I noticed that people really live as individuals and not consider you. The real Parisians are not really charming people. Before I had been in Paris, I thought Paris was romantic but when I was there once was that beautiful picture immediately. The city carries a fishy smell in and people are unfriendly. If you go outside Paris performs the people are different. I heard people say that the real Parisians were a disgrace for the whole of France. That comment surprised me. All in all we have seen and learned much of this city, and we also see how our lessons into practice.
