This month, I had the honor of hosting a panel on working abroad at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Orlando, Florida. This is the largest gathering of women in tech, with over 18,000 attendees this year.
I always hear horror stories about people getting their wallets, phones, or even entire purses stolen in Parisian metros. I had prided myself on avoiding thefts… until last night.
While things are generally wonderful here Paris, be assured that life isn’t always free fancy hotel stays and croissants every day. Tyler and I recently went through our first foreign tax-filing experience. I spent quite a few weeks stressing out about it, but we found the people at our local tax office to be surprisingly helpful to us newcomers.
