Travel…

I’ve always been a dreamer, so what better way to feed into my dreams than to travel and experience the world for myself. I grew up hearing my dad describe his travel tales in his youth and I promised myself that when I grew up I’d go adventure the world for myself, that way I have stories to tell my children. What excites me the most about travelling to a new place is really the excitement of experiencing life through someone else’s lifestyle. So when I travel I try as much as possible to do as the locals do so that when I leave I take a piece of the culture with me.

It’s easy to think the world ends at the end of your town but traveling helps me broaden my mind. I also love trying out new food and picking up different languages and learning that we are so different but still so similar. Continue reading

The weather was cool, the environment was very calm and the structured flowers came to life with glowing lights all around. The enormous garden is complete with sitting areas, souvenir shops as well as Pizza Hut! Continue reading
