The French Art of Living Well

Have you heard of “L’Art de Vivre”? It’s French for “the art of living well.”

There’s a delightful town in the south of France, where the people are renowned for embracing this philosophy. This is where I spent 3 blissful weeks, learning about and lapping up L’Art de Vivre.

L’Art de Vivre or “the art of living well” is a celebration of life’s simple pleasures. It’s about appreciating the beauty that surrounds us.

It encourages us to be present, to bask in the warmth of the golden sunshine, linger over a delightful drink in the company of loved ones, and indulge in delightful food. Cooking, eating, and even shopping for food in the vibrant local markets become delightful experiences.

It’s about savoring the little moments that make life truly special. At the end of the day, happiness comes from noticing and enjoying the little things in life.

In this video, I share with you the 4 ways you can take inspiration from the French, and embrace the art of living well!

Food and Spirituality in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur was the next stop on our 8-month world trip, after our time in Bali (Ceningan Island). We stopped over in Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights, because the best flights to travel from Bali to Paris, were via KL. Before my visit here, I wasn't even very interested in...
