Hy Khong

I spent Halloween in Paris with friends. As a lot of us had been before, we didn’t feel the need to re-visit all the monuments, which afforded us more time to explore side streets and neighborhoods. Our apartment was right next to Rue Mouffetard, in the Latin Quarter, where I ate the best meals of my life thus far… also where I blew all my hard-earned #cashdollars (oops #casheuros) because nothing in the city of lights is cheap. But it was worth every cent.

Despite crying every time I saw something cool I wanted to purchase but couldn’t afford, which was all the time as cute boutiques and concept stores are everywhere, and having the worst blisters of my life because I chose to be fashionable* instead of comfortable, I love you, Paris… so much.

*I will never compare to the models casually strutting out of a Paris Fashion Week show… but whatever, WE ALL HAVE DREAMS.

Always carrying around a camera, I&#39;m one to believe that even the smallest moments are ones we should preserve. I&#39;ve been to France before, but I was unfortunately too naïve and young to appreciate it. I&#39;m hoping this time I&#39;ll be able to thoroughly experience the Nantais way of life, and have the musings and photos to share with you all along the way.</span></p>
