About

I am not French and am not a Canadian though I would like to visit France one day and have been to Canada a few times. :) Just adding this explanation because some people get confused about me and my blog due to the french name. By the way, I don’t really need to explain this, but the reason I named this blog la vie eclectique instead of in English is because that other one is taken and I don’t feel like buying it. Simple as that.
This is a personal blog about my pursuit of an eclectic and beautiful life. In the beginning, this blog is about food and travel in the San Francisco Bay Area (sometimes beyond) and now, it’s much more…
Beyond… I would love to say that I have been everywhere by the time I am old. Lol. Very vague, no? :) I hope to have traveled to all 7  (6 if you are being very scientific about this)  continents (Africa, Antarctica,  Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America) and 50 States (within the US) before leaving this planet. By default, I am living in one now so I have 5.5 to go (.5 because I was really young when I was at another continent and don’t know if that really counts. :) ) As for the 50 states, I have done 9, so I have 41 to go!

I am interested in a lot of things, so you will find that I have a variety of topics on my blog.

If you are reading this, thank you. I hope you will travel along and chime in any time you like.

Cheers-

Pictures from some of the places I visited…(L – R): Neighborhood park in Long Island, NY; Ferry Building in San Francisco, CA; Balboa Park in San Diego, CA; Biosphere in Montreal, Canada; train station in Quebec City, Canada; Fountain inside a historic home in the French Quarter, New Orleans, LA; Manhattan Beach Pier in Los Angeles, CA.
