Um so apparently you can live in this Parisian bookstore for free




I just learned about this place called Shakespeare and Company, situated right outside Notre Dame in Paris. You can go there and sleep for free, for just a night or a few weeks. One dude reportedly stayed here for years. During the day you’re welcome to write or make art among the bookshelves. 


All they ask is that you read their books, tend their store for a couple of hours each day, and put a one-page autobiography in their already extensive library. A lot of people here speak English, and lots of the books are in English as well. If you live here, you’re called a Tumbleweed, how cute is that?! (Here’s a link to one blogger’s experience.) I think I’m going to put another item on my bucket list…

Okay.. this is awesome.
