Right now, I am in Paris. This is where I grew up, where I have always found “home”, and where, based on what’s been going on in the world since 2020 … I haven’t been able to travel to for more than 2 years!
And life being as unpredictable as it can be, at the end of February 2022, I flew back to Paris, away from Hong Kong. I simply didn’t feel safe there, nor felt excited to live. Sounds dramatic, I know! Especially for such a vibrant and inspiring city as Hong Kong normally is. But this is not a political post, and as global news travel fast, wherever you are, you probably have an idea of how life has been challenging over there lately…
And all I can say is how lucky we are to have the choice. To have the freedom to pack and go. And that is what we did. So, as I type this from our Parisian home, I feel alive, lucky and excited about life again!
So now, how do I approach a healthy lifestyle in Paris?
This first post for myhealthycities.com/paris is going to be a listing of my go-to’s or rather must-go-to places I want to explore while living temporary here.
If you have been following us for a little while, you know that MHC is not a personal blog, but a mission to care & share about what we feel is inspiring us to live our best lives!
We will simply write, tag and post what we encounter to be worthy to us.
