The reason I have this blog is simple – I love creating something out of nothing; and everything I make represents how I see things and what I enjoy in a moment in time. It’s almost the four-year anniversary of my blog now, and this project is one of the most special. I spent a couple weeks in my hometown in Beijing in August – the longest time I’ve spent there in about six years. In the last few days, I collaborated with a photographer and took a walk in the area in which I grew up. I’ve moved around…

Adventure is Out There

Adventure is Out There

                  I’m currently sitting 39,000 feet in the air, typing this into a word document instead of Wordpress because of the lack of fast internet (I’m still amazed there’s internet on planes at all). Somehow blogging feels fundamentally different if I’m not typing directly on the internet. I don’t tend to make impulsive decisions or step outside of the box much when it comes to major life choices. However, I’ve always had a bit of a whimsical side. I crave and chase after the feeling of spontaneity, freedom, romance… It’s not always…

When Time Stands Still // LDR Thoughts

When Time Stands Still // LDR Thoughts

I'm not good at breaking rules, even ones that are self imposed. When I started a full time job back in 2016, I set a goal for myself that no matter what, I was going to write at least three blog posts a month. I don't think anyone else in the world cared if I accomplished this very arbitrary goal, but come the last day of the month, there was a good chance you'd find me rushing to finish up a post before the clock struck midnight. I'm proud that I've hit that goal every single month since I created…

More Similar Than Different & Other Travel Reflections

More Similar Than Different & Other Travel Reflections

Recently I traveled to Cleveland, Ohio for a few days. Not going to lie, my expectations weren’t particularly high, but as all things are relative of course, I was pleasantly surprised by it and the trip gave me a chance to reflect on traveling in general. Here are some of my thoughts on traveling: 1 / Food is history. Landmarks are walled off for protection, monuments get erected, but food is something that reveals history in a subtle but undeniable way. This idea is nothing new as seen by Netflix’s extensive food documentary library, but I have been noticing it…

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

I've been putting off this post entirely too long now because it's not a fun topic to write, or even think about. I'm currently sitting with a coffee in the cafe of the Taipei hotel we're calling home for six nights. My boyfriend and I have been best friends for almost four years, partners for more than three, roommates for almost two. We can't count on two hands the number of countries we have traveled to together (thanks to those Caribbean countries we visited on a cruise :p), and now we're on one last big trip before the start of…
