Since Berlin and Helsinki are fairly, we decided to visit Jaleh. :) Our 3 day short visit is sweet and full of salmon.😅 We bought a three-day tram unlimited pass and you can take both trams an buses. The old city is cute and small and we happened to see lots of local college students playing field games throughout the city. (Oh young people! lol) Read More

It's always great to have an old friend traveling with you, PLUS a surprising spontaneous meet up with another one, PLUS explore the city with a good looking friend lol. They were the highlight of this trip. Needless to say, the main purpose of my third Berlin trip was all about LOLLAPALOOZA. The lineup was crazy good this year for the rock and roll / electro fans.

This is the third time I've been to Montreal and first time to Quebec, so I am gonna introduce some events/locations that is not touristy and worth visiting. This is also my first time traveling with my graduate school mate Darcy. Haven't seen her for more than one year and it's been hell fun with her.

2016 is probably the year that I reunited with my friends the most. From school, from home, and even from backpacking. So the start of 2016, I've decided to visit the place where the friends met in Paris currently live: Toronto.

Although I've been to Japan for many time, this is the first time ever I've been in Shizuoka and Nagoya. Taking bullet trains itself is quite an experience. A sense of familiarity, but not quite the same as the ones in Taiwan. My short stay here is full of wonders and lots of laugh!

After Europe, I went back to Asia after 3 years. Last time I visited Tokyo, it was 2005. Tokyo has a sense of familiarity and a sense of freshness since everything changed so fast here. I've also met some interesting people here.

Dublin is my last stop of my 2015 euro trip. I've never imagined Ireland to be so wonderful and sunny (I got lucky again!)

After Istanbul, it's a bit strange to be back in the western city. Everything looks very different from the past 10 days, yet it's so familiar to be back in the westernized city.

Istanbul, it wasn't on my list, but it turned out to become my favorite city thus far. I didn't plan all my cities beforehand. I only had three when I started. When I met Ryley in Paris, he showed me his whole plan and Istanbul grabbed my eyes. We were supposed to meet up in Istanbul, but unfortunately he couldn't make it! My stay in Istanbul was second home hostel and it truly made me feel like a second home there. Here are the stories of the people in the hostel!
