So here I am….finally, after a couple of years of mulling it over. I’ve packed up my life, left Canada behind and arrived in France to follow my passion and study perfumery. The road to get here has been a roller coaster ride of fear, doubt, excitement, and lots of other deeply challenging emotional and mental and physical highs and lows, with some spiritual development (I hope) thrown in for good measure.
I was shooed out at closing and after getting lost one more time in the Metro, retreated to my hotel for one last night of sleep. Sleep, I might add, that was punctuated about every five minutes by the subterranean rumblings of the Metro itself .
.The morning of the 26th, I caught a taxi at 5:45am to the Gare du Nord station, enroute to my real destination- Grasse!
