BEHIND CHASING BOHEME
"La bohème, la bohème,
ça voulait dire on est heureux" - Charles Aznavour
Hi, Welcome to Chasing Bohème !
I'm Zefa, currently living in Paris, i was born in a metropolitan city while spending most of my childhood days nomad-ing from an island to another.
Through my 9 years living in Paris, sun rays was among the things i miss the most. During my summer holidays, i would chase handmade goods - turquoise ceramics for one - and bring them home. It becomes something i treasure because it reminds me of sea, blue sky and warm summer breeze.
Looking at my apartment now, it fills with love and good memories - a handmade Kilim i brought from Cappadocia, woven basket from Yogyakarta, water jacinthe carpet from Borneo, vintage vases and crystals from Parisian flea market, and more...
Chasing Bohème is a journal where you will find gem i brought home from a voyage, a carnet d'adresse of city i live or visited, a thoughtful itinerary or simply a feeling i got after travelling to a country.
It is about finding joy as i walk on and i hope you would find one too when reading the journey along with me.
Thank you for your being here
