As some of you may know I travelled to France for a month! Now I am back in Taipei city! I have a ton of things I want to write about and I'll start by saying it was a wonderful trip, creative, inspiring and filled with new experiences + delicious plant based / Vegan Food! Yummy! Come with me as I go through my France Travel Journal part [1].  

I can still remember the first time I visited Paris, it was with my family and I don't recall it being very pleasant. I remembered after that trip I felt like Paris wasn't suitable for a kid, I was about 12 at the time. The second time I visited Paris was in my early 20s, I was visiting my boyfriend at the time and I was able to visit more places and not just Paris. That trip opened my eyes to the artistic and "romantic side" of Paris and the beautiful towns + other cities France offered. I remembered the Louvre as well as all the public art and the beautiful large fountains where people would just sit around and enjoy a good book or nap. I also learnt about la biz greeting (air kiss) which was not so usual for me at the time.  

Fast forward to 2016, my third trip to Paris + France. To be honest I was a tad nervous before I left as I heard there was flooding as well as with the recent attacks, somewhere in my heart I felt uneasy. I went for it anyway, that's what they want terrorists to make us feel afraid, small and fragile. We can not let them get what they want. Amidst all the tragedies and cruelty the only way to fight terrorism is to keep living and to never take life for granted. 


My Paris trip was to attend my friend's wedding as well as take a nice mini holiday with my boyfriend. We made plans to visit some cool events such as Solidays of Love and Fete de la musique. He also planned some wonderful park visits and made sure to visit some touristic highlights such as DisneyLand Paris + Versailles + Museum Pompidou and much more. Another major part on our list was to indulge ourselves in delicious plant based + vegan food. The food did not disappoint, Paris is changing and what wonderful changes they are! I had an awesome time and I'll let my photos do the "introducing". In the next upcoming posts, there will be more exciting snaps and stories! I hope you enjoy this travel photography journal of France and don't hesitate to tell me about your summer trip or link your post down below :)
