Hello! Apologies for not being on time with posts ><”

School began about 10 days ago, and I haven’t had a single real moment to reflect and think about what to share with all of you.

One word that keeps popping up is intense. The course is labeled “Intensive Basic Patisserie”, and let me assure you, it has been INTENSE!

Days usually comprise of at least one demonstration class (3 hours), where chef shows and teaches techniques you will have to replicate in practical class (3hours). A minimum of 6 hours of class a day. We’re already up to lesson 8, that is 48 hours of baking!!!

Paris Adventures Before School Begins

Bonjiour!

I made it to Paris πŸ˜€ after a LOOOooOoNG 12 hour flight.

It’s two days before school begins, and I’ve already eaten and seen so many beautiful things here.

Let me take you on a tour of my version of the Parisian experience. Very limited at the moment, but let’s hope I can build up.

I’m living currently in an AirBnB hired apartment in the 15th arrondissement (kind of like a suburb which refer to as in Melbourne).

It’s a quiet suburban area but FULL of so many places to explore, although I did venture outside myΒ arrondissement too.

I’ll share with you the most memorable moments over the past few days, I’ll also link the address to the places in case ONE DAY you all decide to come to France for your own adventure πŸ˜€

My dearest cousin has been on this munching journey with me πŸ˜€

The end of a long chapter of life into a new adventure

Paris macaroons

Bonjour!

So……..I am off to Paris this week! πŸ˜€

It’s been a long journey to come to this next part of my journey in life. Letting go of a routine that I’ve been doing for about 4 years, into a new adventure πŸ˜€

It’s so EXCITING! I am going to attend Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.

A hospitality school that I learnt about through the movie “Julie and Julia” (a must watch! If you have not seen it yet)

Let me give you all a tad of a background, I’ll try to be short.

I’m what you would describe as a “safe” person, I graduated high school, and went straight into university then onto working life. Adventure is A LOT not a bit daunting for me. O_o
