I used to work at a retirement home as a teenager and the elderly residents would always tell me how it felt like just yesterday that they were my age. I’d just smile and nod not really understanding what they meant. Now at 29, I feel like time really does fly. My perspective has shifted on how I view work and living in France surely had something to do with it. Being here has opened my eyes to how Europeans view a work-life balance. Not only do they work smarter, but they have enough vacation time to make the average American green with envy.
Why are McDonald’s restaurants in France better?
