Hey there! My name is Chloé Bourjalliat and I am a travel blogger and life coach based in London. Many people have told me that I should write a book about my life. There seems to be something special about the way I am living my life...or at least it seems to be interesting to others. I do have many cool stories to tell...but I never felt that my life was anything special, if anything, I never felt that my life was ever cool enough...
But over the years I did notice that my life had so far been very different from that of most people, and my friends always loved hearing about my epic stories... I came to understand that I have a particular hunger for life and the many experiences it offers... I was born in Los Angeles, my parents are French, and I grew up between Paraguay, France and the Caribbean. I practically grew up learning 3 languages simultaneously. I travelled all my life, and lived in 10 different cities, in 7 different countries, in 3 different continents... Yep... and I'm just in my thirties! For me all this is normal! But not for most of you...
All this travelling and interaction with different cultures very early on left me questioning my own identity! Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? Who are my people? Equally, the diversity I was exposed to nourished me tremendously. From the beginning I have been fascinated by the different experiences this world offers, and I can say I was born to explore life in this world! When I was little, I used to say that when I'd grow up I’d be an adventurer! Indiana Jones was my role model… And as I write this, I realise that I've done pretty well in becoming a Modern Adventurer. So maybe I will write that book one day...but for now I’ve started with a blog!
This is my website, a showcase of everything I'm up to, everything that I love, travel articles, little videos on life, pics of my last weekend, people I love, what I eat, what I wear, what I think... all catalogued! I hope it to be a source of inspiration to those who love the world as much as I do and who aspire to be Modern Adventurers!
