Welcome to my quirky little corner of the blogging world. Silly travel and nature posts, amateur photography, cultural foods, and odd hobbies. 

My parents fled their country, I was born in a refugee camp, we immigrated- we had nothing. Today, I appreciate everything. I’ve been a female traveler for over 6 years to dozens of countries, and am an aspiring blogger.

Growing up in 3 different worlds and had a lot of trouble understanding why I’m different. I never quite belonged anywhere. Until I realized that it was okay. I’m given the life I have, I need to live it as I like it.

In life, I let my heart and impulses guide me, and trust that my wandering will lead me to happiness. 

Today, I enjoy seeing as much of the world as possible. Trying to do as many new and unusual things as possible. I realize that a lot of things are out of my grasp, but have also figured out what the most important things in my life are.

In my travels, I don’t count the countries I’ve been to, only the experiences I’ve had.

Moved to NYC for a year because I wanted to try it

Studied in Singapore

Climbed a volcano and watched it erupt all night long


Scuba diving with whale sharks

Full moon party

Rode an elephant & ostrich

Rode in a hot air balloon

Motorbiked around Thailand & Vietnam

Rode a bullet train

Slept in capsule hotel

Hiked all the way down and up Grand Canyon in one day

Snorkel-ed with sharks and manta rays

Trekked in a jungle for 3 days

If you had asked me 5 years ago, if I would have done any of these things, I would have thought you were crazy. This is why I’m truly confident that with effort to do what you love, you will be happy.

It’s never too early and it’s never too late!

Thanks for stopping by, please do ask me anything!!

Some things about me:

  • I have not watched enough TV in my life, so I don’t know most famous actresses, actors, or movies.
  • I’m a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy genre books.
  • I don’t like running or climbing stairs, but I love hiking, kayaking, scuba-diving, skydiving.
  • My irrational fears: snakes crawling up from the toilet, tsunamis, worms, and hallways/basements/elevators.
  • My food fascinations: noodles, soups, eggs, potatoes, bitter melon, all things vegetarian.

Status: currently working from home, spending time with my family, and occasionally traveling with my loving partner and seeing the world.
