Welcome to my world! My name's Nik, and I'm a British expatriate who has been living in Paris, France for the last five years. Even though I never planned to stay in Paris for very long, now I'm here I've no plans to leave soon - the beauty of Paris has never worn off, and so far it's been a five year long vacation! Enjoy my ramblings...

While standing in a supermarket queue that was also standing still, I found myself looking at the ready made cakes on a shelf near by. There was a packet of brownies that looked like this;


'à Partager', written down there on the right, means 'for sharing'. I looked at all the other cakes to see if there were explicit instructions that they must be shared too. Apparently not, only brownies must be shared.

And that's why the french are so thin.

And I'm not.
