Travel Diary: Blast From The Past – Paris

paris, France

Two years ago today, I flew to Paris with my brother thanks to a contest I won, hosted by Delifrance Malaysia. I was even treated to a French baking class at Ecole de Boulangerie et de Patisserie, one of the oldest baking schools in Paris. Taking a trip to Paris had always been a dream of mine, it still is, and it was like an early birthday present to be able to finally visit “The City of Lights” or “The City of Love”, whichever you want to call it.

It was such a thrill to find out that I was going to Paris and the timing was perfect because my brother was overloaded with work and needed a break. I would love to roam the streets once again, hopefully sometime in the near future with a special someone. I apologize for the quality of the photos as most of them were taken with an iPhone 4s and a Samsung S4. I did have my DSLR but I was still a total noob at using it and I wasn’t familiar with ANY of the settings or anything to do with camerawork.
