5 Jun, 2017 in Madrid

Madrid has long been on my TODO list, but it was only the end of last year around holiday time that I finally made it. Since it was the holidays, most of the things in Spain were closed, but I was able to visit a few attractions that were open, and perhaps the most famous of […]

18 May, 2015 in Saint Louis
Forest Park  Saint Louis (1)

Though I didn’t spend long in Saint Louis, I managed to visit some of the highlights like the famous Saint Louis Gateway Arch and the Missouri Botanical Gardens. To start off my day, I went for breakfast at a boat house next to a small lake in the lovely Forest Park, home to many of […]

31 Dec, 2013 in Boston, Itineraries
485

To kickoff my move from Hong Kong to the United States last year, I chose Boston to be my first stop in the USA. With top universities like Harvard and MIT (and many others) and the many years since I visited last as a child, it was long overdue. Boston has exceeded every expectation, academically […]

30 Dec, 2013 in Itineraries, Tallahassee
349

Last year, somewhat unexpectedly, I found myself on a research exchange to a small town in northern Florida called Tallahassee – home to Floirda State University where I was to work with a professor in the social psychology department. Before going to Tallahassee I wasn’t sure what to expect, there wasn’t much available on the […]

29 Dec, 2013 in Orlando
Epcot Disney Orlando (27)

The Walt Disney World and Epcot Center are some of the most vivid memories I have from my year living in the states in 1989. Based in Topeka middle-of-no-where Kansas the family set off for a trip to Florida and Orlando spending a few days in kids’ paradise. It was around Christmas and Hannukah time […]

27 Dec, 2013 in Itineraries, Puerto Rico
Cabo+Rojo+Lighthouse+Puerto+Rico+ 52  Los Morrillos Lighthouse : Cabo Rojo   Puerto Rico puerto tico

One of my main travel goals for my research appointment to Florida was to try and get a glimpse of central and south America. It’s a part of the world I’ve never been to but always wanted to explore. Though I failed that mission, I was able to get a little bit closer than before […]

Of all the attractions people visit Orlando for, the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral in eastern Florida an hour away was the one I was looking forward to the most. I visited Disney World, Wet-n-Wild and a few of the other Orlando attractions back in 1989 while I was in sixth grade staying in […]

22 Aug, 2012 in Beijing
Chaoyang Park - Beijing (24).JPG

Though Chaoyang Park (朝阳公园; Cháoyáng Gōngyuán) probably isn’t the nicest park you can find in Beijing, it is the biggest one and there are a number of features and key attractions that would make this park a perfect weekend getaway for families.   There are small hands-on museums, a medium size amusement …

2 Dec, 2011 in Washington DC
Washington DC Zoo (13).JPG

When it comes to museums and parks, very few cities in the world can compete with Washington DC on quality and variety. The mysterious Smithsonian Institution, whatever and however it came to be, has done wonderful things for the cultural and artistic attractions of the American capital. It’s overwhelming, really, how they are able to […]

13 May, 2010 in Shenzhen
Shenzhen - Window of the World
 (90).JPG

Always wanted to see the world and never had the time? make the time, because I doubt Shenzhen’s Window of the World will do it for you. If anything, Window of the World can serve as a mediocre reminder of the grandeur and beauty of these places to those who have actually already travelled to […]
