La Vie En Paris

After 8 years, I finally made my way back to my second home. P A R I S. To those of you who don’t know, I lived in Paris for a few months when I was 18, where I studied a Post Graduate course on Luxury Brand Management. Strange to study something Post grad when I hadn’t even graduated yet at that time! The reason why this city holds so much meaning to me is because it’s where I grew up. I mean… it’s where I really grew up- as an adult. 8 years ago, I was thrown into the real world continents away from home and straight into the city of love. I was 18, put in a bubble my whole life- and then suddenly- BOOM- left in Paris to fend for myself. The life lessons I learned are priceless, and the city I learned them in? My favorite.

Fast forward to 2016- I finally got the chance to fly back. My agenda for Day 1? Visit the Palais Royal! Back then, I lived 2 minutes away from here and walked around this place every single day. I couldn’t really afford anything on my student budget back then, so it was nice to get to sit down with this view and buy myself a cup of coffee. It took me 8 years, but hey, I’m here! We ended up not really liking the coffee or the snooty barista (as witnessed here), but the experience and mems are priceless. Enjoy!x
