Going to Paris

Updated on December 4, 2015


Business and some sight seeing

When we work we sometimes are pleasantly surprised when we get the chance to travel for business assignments. I am fortunate to work for a company that is cutting edge with engineers, accountants and other professionals working together for a common goal and which provides an opportunity for some travel. This is the first company I have worked for where I have experienced traveling outside of the US. Last November I had the good fortune of traveling to China which was a tremendous experience and opportunity. I work with great people and every day is a pleasure. It is so important to find a place to work where you get to exchange ideas and contribute. We all want to play an important role and make an impact that is felt in a positive way for the company we work for.

In our busy lives we naturally wish to travel and experience what life is like abroad and to have a taste of the many different cultures and to see new places and enjoy meeting the people of those foreign lands we have a chance to visit. I have always wanted to have an opportunity to travel to Europe and was fortunate enough to travel to England, Scotland and Wales as a young man before I married. I never had the chance to visit France and when my employer asked me to plan a scheduled visit to the Paris office for a business trip I was extremely excited and happy. I look forward to working with the Paris office and the accountant upon my visit and feel it is an opportunity of a life time just like I did when I was asked to travel to China. We don't often have these opportunities so when the chance comes it is something I welcome with eager anticipation.

I always welcome opportunities where I get to challenge myself, learn new things and work with professionals in a joint and collaborative effort as part of a team with a specific goal in mind. I have had the privilege of meeting the director of the French operations on his visit to the New York office and I welcome visiting and working with him in Paris, France at his office. I wish I had a better command of the French language but am far removed from it since it was back in high school that I last spoke it. I took 3 years of French and remember some words but will need to rely on english as the spoken language. I will try to speak a little French and may find a renewed interest in learning the language once again.

Je suis impatient de mon voyage en France en collaboration avec le directeur des opérations et leur comptable. Je tiens également à visiter certains sites historiques.

I am looking forward to my trip to France in collaboration with the Director of operations and their accountant. I also wish to visit some historic sites.

I anticipate a full work week with meetings and discussions with both the director of operations and the accountant and I will certainly rely on having language translation provided to me as we engage in conversation. I find this will be a great opportunity of learning and understanding the organization and I will certainly make the most of it. When I was in China we had long days where we were introduced to all the staff and we learned their roles and responsibilities. Although the work days were long they seemed to fly by and we enjoyed the evenings where we would dine out and take in some of the sites. I very much look forward to taking in some of the sites in Paris and dining in some of the restaurants as well. I feel that this is also a very important part of the trip and I will certainly enjoy the chance to experience life in Paris for a week. If I could visit some of the sites of the city I would love to see the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Les jardin des Tuileries and Le Place de la Concord.

Travelling allows us to expand our horizons and to see other places of the world that we don't often get to see. Business trips allow us to grow professionally and to experience working in other parts of the world we don't often get to and working with people of other cultures who teach us more about life and allow us to gain a whole fresh new perspective.

As I prepare for my trip I will plan for the week and will eagerly await my journey and once I am there I will work hard to achieve all that is expected of me and I will enjoy the experience and enjoy the opportunity of working with the French office.

Je veut travaille en Paris avec mon amis et voir le sites.
