The Everglades - Florida (69)

The Everglades, a huge wetland area in southern Florida, isn’t just host to a large population of alligators. It’s also a habitat for many types of birds, some resident, some migrating. I don’t know much about birds, but the guided tour around the Everglades is likely to tell you more about the wildlife of …

The Everglades - Florida (59)

Like alligators? Florida has lots of those for you all over the state, but you’re most likely to get a kick out of the Everglades National Park, a massive wetlands down in southern Florida. It’s probably one of the must day trip attractions if you’re visiting Miami, and one of the most pleasurable experiences I’ve […]

OuCuo & Pianopiano - Kinmen Island (13)

Oucuo is a traditional settlement of the Ouyang family, who came from Quanzhou during the Ming Dynasty over 400 years ago. The village was originally intended to defend the island from the sea invaders to the southern China coast. I arrived in Ou Cuo at sunset after a long day of riding a motorcycle around […]

Owakaduni Hell Valley - Hakone (1)

What does hell look like? Up on the mountains of Hakone by a tram and a cable car, a daytrip away from Tokyo, is the Owakaduni Hell Valley. Boiling steam comes up from the mountain to create an atmosphere that looks a bit like hell. Aside from looking at steam, the area is famous for […]

Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (24)

I spent the last Christmas and Newyears holiday season in New York City with the familia, and if there’s one thing you can count on it’s that NYC on holiday season is going to be expensive. Very expensive. But, we were lucky, and I found a small artistic Brooklyn apartment near the subway and Prospect […]

Ringling Museum of Art Sarasota (20)

Although Ringling is mostly famous for living the American dream by becoming a millionaire in establishing one of the world’s biggest circus shows, his Ringling Estate in Sarasota down on the western coast of southern Florida hosts an impressive top notch museum of art. Featuring an impressive Spanish architecture and some of the finest private […]

Ci Hu Lake - Kinmen (5)

Venturing out of Jincheng town in Kinmen on a motorcycle for a cross-island ride, the first stop along the way was near Cihu (Ci lake), in the northwestern part of the main Jinmen Island. The main story about Kinmen is definitely the cold war between mainland China and Taiwan, as Kinmen served as an isolated […]

Christmas lights in Tallahassee (23)

This time last year I was living in Tallahassee and was surprised to see the preparations for Christmas starting as early as November. Riding around town I noticed quite a few light shows popping up in various churches and I occasionally stopped by to have a look.   Take this next one, …

China Town - NYC (3)

To get a taste of home during my exchange to the states, I joined my mother during our joint visit to New York last year to explore the NYC China Town, one of the most famous China Towns in the world. It was actually much more humble than I remembered it from my last visit […]

The Jewish Museum New York NYC-002

Although I live in somewhat of a disconnect from my cultural heritage, my travels sometimes offer me the opportunity to reconnect. New York City, with its large Jewish population, has quite a few options for that to happen. Meeting my parents in New York last Christmas we were walking around the upper east side to […]
