It’s happening! Amidst all the chaos in my life right now, I’m dropping it all to accompany my boyfriend on a business trip to London. Traveling is the one thing I’ve never been able to say no to. No matter how many emails I have to answer or orders I need to fill for work, I would drop it all for the chance to travel which is basically exactly what I’m doing. I just love traveling so much (who doesn’t?) and London is one of my favorite cities in the world to visit. It’s starting to feel like a home away from home.
After bidding my brother and Lacoste farewell, we jumped back in the car and drove to Aix-en-Provence for lunch. It’s a pretty fun, small college town with shops and trees lining the streets. I was excited when we found a salad bar called Jour, where you can make your own salad. I was especially happy that they had plenty of vegan options, so I got a big salad with black rice, chickpeas, avocado, green beans, peas, carrots, cabbage, and lemon juice. After feeling refueled, I grabbed some mango & strawberry sorbet and we headed back to the car so we could make it to Marseilles and then on to Saint Tropez where we’d be spending the next 3 nights.
Just over 2 week ago, my boyfriend and I flew from Hong Kong to Paris to embark on our most spontaneous adventure yet. Ever since my brother started working for SCAD at their campus in Lacoste, France, I promised myself that I’d make a trip out to visit him. After countless times of thinking about it, I finally decided to make it happen with the help of my loving and supportive boyfriend of course. We hopped on a train to Avignon, where we then rented a car and proceeded to drive to the small southern town of Lacoste in the stunningly beautiful Provence region of France.
