I've been reading a lot about the benefits and reasons for taking a sabbatical, specifically for those working in fast-paced creative environments. I myself am the type of creative who is always looking to improve, always wanting to provide the highest quality of work possible, and always willing to work the hours needed to get the job done. I love designing for the web, it's something i'm incredibly passionate about. That said, there's something about taking a step back from your work life and pursuing your own creative projects outside of the corporate world - creating something for yourself, something you can share with others, and ultimately something that will leave you feeling fulfilled and recharged for a return to day-to-day life.
My goal with la vie à Paris is to take a month off from day-to-day life to focus solely on experiencing Pairs, France and all it offers with my wife and my camera. We've always been bold in the sense of making things happen and taking chances and we've done just that for the past four years while exploring North America, Europe, Asia, and soon Africa. This project is the next step in our continued goal to explore as much of the world as we can.
