Sometimes I pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming… It’s been almost 4 years since I moved to Paris and it is like sometimes it just doesn’t dawn on me that I live in this dream land.
Moving here has its pros and cons of course but it definitely has brought many enriching experiences and opportunities… I’m not even talking about huge life-changing adventures but little “happenings” that embellish my everyday life.
One of these moments was a beautiful July afternoon where I was lucky to be invited by Vins de Bordeaux to a boat ride on the Seine River, sampling delicious wines with great company.
Simple like that… but then when I was there I had such a special moment of just joy, feeling the breeze on my face and absorbing every flavor, smell, sound and view of the moment… it was a lovely time!
While there, we were explained by wine expert Nathalie Escudero all about the characteristics of the Bordeaux wine we were presented… it was a great introduction for a girl (me) who is close to clueless Oenology.
