Hey, I m going to Korea again. Well.. the North one this time.!

Processed with VSCO with fp4 preset

During works, I always try to squeeze in some time to travel. Accidently, I will have a gap week – 9 days free. Turkey, Russia and Egypt are the top 3 countries on my wish list . However, those places definitely need more than 9 days.

One night I was in the karaoke with friends, and a song called Strangler in the North (飄向北方) from LeeHom was playing.  How about Beijing ? I do miss my friend there. After talking to him, I booked the ticket right away.

Backpacking with Parents -【Thailand 】🇹🇭

trip to Hua Hin and Bangkok

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_3c43

Those days were 36-37 degree, humid and hot. To show our respects, we chose black clothes in this stifling weather on the day we visited the Grand Palace in Bangkok.

King Bhumibo Adulyadej has passed away more than 8 months, but this country still deeply mourned over the death of their beloved king. During this 5-day trip in Bangkok and HuaHin, we saw mourning halls in every corner. It is something that will never happen in my country – Taiwan. I can’t imagine, but truly respect.

I think all my western friends in TW are so in love with Philippines.They always told me how amazing this place is, but I never had a chance to visit.

Philippines is my no.26 country. Beach and sunshine, it was definitely one of the happiest trip I’ve ever had.

Chinese Disneyland -【Shanghai, China】🇨🇳

The new Disneyland in Shanghai, China

IMG_2431.jpg

Shanghai Disneyland has opened since June, 2016. Even most reviews from Taiwan newspaper and blogs were really negative, we still did not want to miss this great opportunity to visit there.

It is my 3rd time in Shanghai. The only available time to the park was on Sunday. Well.. I think all amusement parks in the world are crowded as hell on Sunday. Also, China is a country with more than 1.35 billion people. If it is crowded, it must be the worst ever.

Northeast Coast -【Taiwan】🇹🇼

A day to Taipei’s country side

thumb_img_4499_1024

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.

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.

Red, Blue and White -【Arequipa,Peru】🇵🇪

Santa Catalina Monastery , Arequipa, Peru

Negative0-01-00(1)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.

Spring Blossoms -【South Korea】🇰🇷

From Seoul to Busan and Jinhae

IMG_1059

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 … !?

IMG_7743

Ha i have no idea why i started with pocket monsters.The first time i heard about Machu Picchu was from high school. This amazing scnene 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 due to busy schedule and laziness. Before the flight to Seattle, I still had no idea how to travel in Peru, ALONE.

Fortunately, my peer just went there last summer. He kindly came to help and shared his experience, traffic route and hostels.
