Starting a New Journey

Starting a New Journey

In 8 days, I’ll be embarking on my first trip to Europe since becoming an adult.

Tony and I will start off in a small French town, La Salle, with a volunteering opportunity through Bay Area non-profit Sprouts Cooking Club. I’ll contribute my photography and videography skills to document the culinary immersion trip, while he’ll be a counsellor to work with the kids and their families!

I’ll spare you the details as I’ll be writing more to update. But basically, it seems that our schedule with Sprouts will evolve around food :)

As a child, I was lucky to have visited many foreign places with my family, but my perspective was much different then. First, I was much shorter… haha!

I’ve since shaped my own style and focus when I’m traveling. I love experiencing the authentic, local lifestyle: the cuisine, fashion, architecture, habits… Of course, sometimes you just gotta do the touristy stuff, but I try to seek out places and activities that are less explored by travelers.

So to start my first grown-up Europe trip, here I present to you, my first travel blog. I must note that I’m more of a photographer, not a writer… but I’ll share my thoughts on where I visited and hope you’ll find them useful and inspiring!
