    My first year in China I had made travel plans to go to Kunming for Chinese New Year. I had heard phenomenal things about Yunnan, the natural beauty, and the rich culture. As a rookie in the travel scene here in China at the time, I had no idea what

    far from the Himalayas and Mt. Everest. That’s why it is

    Most people traveling to Cuba choose popular destinations such as
    Varadero or Havana. They stay in 5 star hotels, they go on some city
    tours and drink mojitos all day long. Cuba is not exactly a backpacker

    I love getting massages in Asia where the prices are less expensive than in the West. While I worked in China, I frequented a chain of massage spas which I really liked. One weekend I was in Beijing in an area that I was not familiar with. I decided

    The first time I travelled to Shanghai, I was walking down the street, simply wandering around. I walked into a small clothing shop to browse around and came across a great shirt that I immediately loved. I went over to the shop owner and began my fi

    Whenever you visit Southeast Asia, chances are you will meet people with a motorbike. Riding a scooter or motorbike all the way down Vietnam for example has always been a rite of passage for first-time visitors.

    It's always a nice surprise when your aunt calls you up to say she's bringing you to a 5-star resort somewhere in China. So was the case one summer and I was ecstatic!

    I had been living in Shanghai for about a year (and kinda slumming it)

    When I return to Thailand in 2018, I made the small backpacking town of Pai a must see, and I’m so glad I did! Surrounded by beautiful mountains and with a friendly vibe throughout the whole town, I enjoyed my 3 days here.

    Of all the places I've been in Europe, Lisbon is one of my favorite cities. It is just so distinctly European - the hills, the roads, the beautiful yellow trams, the buildings, the churches, the culture, the cuisine, the little old ladies who as

    A few years ago, my family and I drove down to the state of Georgia to spend a week away from the hustle and bustle of life. We chose an out of the way destination, so that we didn't need to worry about crowds and other tourists.

    I've been to Europe now about 20 times for business and pleasure and while I have many favorites, Italy will always have a special place in my heart as it was the first country I visited back in the 90's. Just recently I was back to Venice
