Why thirteenatthreeone?

Alors, here’s my story…

I visited Paris for the first time when I was 13. I was so amazed by this beautiful city, and I remember something about the air. I didn’t quite understand it then, but I knew I had to come back again someday. I also told myself that I would like to live in Paris for some time, be it a month, a year, or forever. French was also the most beautiful language I had ever heard and so I made up my mind to learn this beautiful language some day.

Fast forward to my 20s, I ended up visiting Paris a couple more times whenever I travelled to Europe. With every trip, I thought the desire to live here would die down, but it only grew stronger. I finally decided to take the step on my 31st birthday.  I got all the paperwork and everything necessary done within a month, packed my bags and flew over. I signed up with a French language school, and decided to continue my passion for photography. What prettier city to photograph other than Paris?

It all somehow came together, and then suddenly I was living in the most romantic city in the world. I felt like I was living in a dream, it felt so surreal.

This explains the name thirteen@threeone, as I started living my dream from when I was 13, at 31!
