Pondering: Where are you from?

Where are you from? This is the trickiest question that I can get when meeting new people while moving and travelling. And I do get this question all the time! I guess mainly because it’s hard to guess where I’m from from my messed up English accent – the result of moving around. I even […]

Prague the Fairy Tale City and How We Almost Missed It

Next leg of our Europe trip was Prague! It was the city I looked forward to the most and it met all my expectations and beyond! It is such a gorgeous city that you can just wander in aimlessly. So many pretty arts – even the little souvenirs were all so pretty, cobbled-stone streets, hidden […]

Rich Vienna and the Travelling Empress

Continuing my Europe trip, we went by train from Munich to Vienna, which takes around 4 hours. The train itself should probably have prepared me for what was coming. I was very impressed with the Austrian train, which was probably the best train I used during my 19 day trip. It was clean and high-tech […]

Insights into My Second Swipe of Europe This Summer

When people do a tour of Europe, I always wonder what route they take and how they get from point to point. Very rarely, if ever, did I get this information. So here I am now, sharing the result of my extensive research and the result of it. I haven’t finished writing about my country-to-country […]

Here’s the itinerary map of my first swipe of Europe last winter: Straight line indicates land ride (or in my case, train) and curvy line indicates air ride. As I mentioned […]

Neuschwanstein, the Real Live Disney Castle

Sometimes I go somewhere with lots of ammunition ready. Lots of plans, maps, reading on the place of destination. Sometimes I just go with “we’ll see what’s there” attitude. And sometimes this works just as well. For Europe winter trip, we knew we wanted to go to Germany. But Germany is a country that is […]

Queuing in Paris

For the second leg of our Europe winter trip we went to Paris, using Eurostar early in the morning from London. London-Paris trains takes 2.5 hours by crossing the underwater tunnel. I can tell that I will pass Paris quite often as long as I live in London, since most trains going to the midland […]

Post Christmas 2011 in Amsterdam

I used to have a travel blog for a very short period of time. Have no idea why it didn’t last very long even though I have tons of stories and pictures. Possibly because I spent too much time on one post that it became too tiring. Will try a different style now. Brevity is […]

Europe 2011-2012

There always seems to be a good reason to start a new blog. And right now, for this one: as much as I love traveling and photography, I have not journaled or shared my photos much at all. Hence this blog is born. New year, new resolution. Share more photos. Document. Write. So post Christmas […]
