About

This blog documents my journey from sunny and quiet Perth, Australia to the intimidating yet bewitching Paris, France. I left behind my friends, family and the best job I ever had. It was a gamble… A very tough decision. My French was limited, I had very few connections in Paris, yet the chance to absorb the culture and meet new people were too tempting in a world where it’s so easy to let life pass by. Words to live by?
