back to this beautiful country
I have been to Singapore several times. Last year, I got a chance to visit there again for business trip. Actually, I received a mail to join a training in India at first. I was super exciting! India, how awesome! Indian food and another new adventure!I already opened google map to check where to go, but the training was moved to Singapore in the end.
Anyway, I love Singapore. It is a small country but have many things to see. You can experience Indians , Chinese, Western, Malaysians… many different cultures here. And this city is super charming. Since the airport, It made me feel like entering a big garden instead of a busy city.

A day to Taipei’s country side
Taiwan is an island surrounded by ocean. There are many things to do and see in this beautiful island. The east side is within incredible natural scenery. The south is perfect for surfing , beach and food(for me). And the west and north are more for cities and modern life.
Most people visit Taiwan will choose the capital – Taipei as their first stop. However, if you only stay few days or a weekend here, I strongly suggest you to save at least one day to travel out of the city to see the real beauty of this island.

Spectacular view in Gorkhi-Terelj Nation Park
The image of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia, is not really matching up what most people think about Mongolia- the nomadic lifestyle. It is a big city, with tall buildings, cars, clubs, hotels and fancy departments stores. However, the story is totally different in the country side- with open fields, mountains, animals and many others! It will be a waste if you visit Mongolia without out visiting the wild.
For travelers who only have few days in Mongolia, Terelj National Park will be a perfect choice. After 1.5-2.5hrs drive from Ulaanbaatar, you are out in the wild to enjoy the great nature of Mongolia.

visit the biggest statue of the greatest king- chinggis khan statue complex
When I told my friends about traveling to Mongolia, most of them had so many questions about this country. For almost everyone, what came to their mind were horses, steppe, gers and Khan. Some friends even thought most Mongolians are still live in ger, speak Chinese and have deep connection with China. Lol
Naaaaah…Mongolia has nothing to do with China, and they have their own language- Mongolian. Indeed, there are nomadic people live in country side. However, Ulaanbaatar, the capital city, is a modern big city. I started my adventure from UB, and enjoyed 2 weeks of nomadic life. 🙂

Sun, Beach, Beers and Friends!
Why Almeria? Just becoz its ma friend’s hometown.! I have to admit that I never heard about this place until we met. Before this trip, I went to bookstores in Taiwan for some guides of Spain. However, I can’t even find “Almeria” on the map! lol. Anyway, after few days in Barcelona, I flew to Almeria directly and started this trip with many unknowns.

Santa Catalina Monastery , Arequipa, Peru
Arequipa was my last stop in Peru. My travel route was clockwise, for getting used to the height. Indeed, even if this city is located at 2328m, I didn’t feel AMS anymore. Arequipa is the 2nd biggest city in Peru. However, not just like the prototype of metropolis, the historic part of this city has its unique charm.
Arequipa is surrounded by volcanoes. Since that, the old area of this city are with buildings constructed by local white volcanic stones called sillar. It made Arequipa be known as “the white city”. In addition, being influenced by Europeans, those buildings are constructed with baroque style. The historic area is really beautiful and has became a famous spot in Peru.

From Seoul to Busan and Jinhae
South Korea is a country with distinct four seasons. Even if I have been there few times, the scene always brought me different feelings and emotions. After freezing winter, the temperature raises slightly and the chilling winds subside with the coming Spring in March and April. During this period, many festivals and activities are held around South Korea thanks to this moderate weather.
April announces its arrival with blossoming flowers. There are three types of spring blossoms in South Korea – cherry blossom (벚꽃 or Sakura in Japanese), yellow cornelian cherry flowers (산수유꽃) and magnolia (목련). This April, we followed those countless beautiful blossoming spring flowers to travel around South Korea, from Seoul to Busan. Spend the precious family time in this lovely atmosphere.

Rachel & Machu Picchu…. Rachu Picchu …Raichu Pikachu !?
Ha i have no idea why i started with pocket monsters..lol.Anyway, the first time i heard about Machu Picchu was from high school. This amazing view was on the cover of our geography text book. For me, Machu Picchu is full of mysteries and unreachable. This place can only been seen in movies or the animations.How can I give up this amazing chance to visit there!?
Actually, I kinda gave up my whole trip before my flight. lol..so until then I still had no idea how to travel in Peru, ALONE, not to mention Machu Picchu .Fortunately, my peer just went there last summer. He kindly came to help and shared his experience , traffic route and hostels. Well.. let’s see.. 🙂

To be near you, to be free.
This Feb, I got a chance to Seattle on business trip. Most of my peers took this chance to travel in some other places,such as LA, San Francisco, Vegas or Canada. However, I have no idea how I came up with this idea. As long as I got the confirmation of Seattle trip from my boss, I made up my mind to PERU.
Well…why not. To be honest, I was kinda afraid and worried to travel alone there.For me, there were so many unknowns of this country. However, I am so glad Ive made the right decision and achieved this goal. 🙂

all the way to Berlin Teufelsberg with Drive Now.!
This summer, I attended a friends’ wedding in Portugal. After that, I planned to visit some other countries nearby – France, Netherlands, Belgium… Be honest, I did have any ideas and plans about where to go or where to stay. However, “when you venture outside, you are in for a surprise”, I ended up my trip in Berlin unexpectedly!
A week in Berlin was more than amazing. It’s my second time here, but with totally different feeling and experience. I visited some cool places ,and had lots of fun with my lovely friends. Cold War and graffiti art are two things that make the city unique and special. History and art had left marks in many places around Berlin , including this amazing place- Berlin Teufelsberg.
