First things first: welcome to solosophie. My name is Sophie and I'm from... well I'm not sure anymore! I love coffee, Paris, and wine (not necessarily in that order!) Self-confessed francophile and avid reader, I moved to Paris in 2015... That same year I started this blog.
In August 2015, I literally had no idea the direction my life was headed in. Spoiler alert: I still don't. But I've always been the kind of girl with 5million random facts in her head and nowhere to put them (so I started a blog!- a move I highly recommend you make too).
I created this space online to share my passion for, well, life (but mainly travel). On this blog, you'll find quirky, cultural and chic adventures in Europe and beyond. Head here often enough and you can also expect to find photography tips, quirky trivia & a continual stream of wanderlust inspiration.
I'm all about exploring your own backyard just as much as hopping on a plane across the Atlantic (if only I could do the latter more often). After, all, adventure is often just around the corner: this blog is all a reflection of that mindset.
Who am I?
So who am I? Well, I grew up in a small village in the English Countryside and it was pretty beautiful. My parents still live there and I visit as often as I can- I miss my dog lots too! Despite all the greenery and constant rain (ha!), at 18 I couldn't wait to leave. So I packed my life into my Mum's little Fiat 500 and moved to the biggest city I could possibly imagine at the time to study at a university in London.
At 21, I moved to Paris, France. I fell in love with the city... walking cliché, I know! Anyway, around that time, I also picked up my first camera and started taking photos. I then returned to London to finish my degree and now work on this blog full-time!
I hope you'll like it here.
P.s. I'm currently writing a book so watch this space!
P.p.s. the photo was taken by my sister (charlottenadeau.com).
