I some times feel I life for traveling. I love to explore, to see new places, eat new foods and to take the road less traveled!
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness." ~ Mark Twain
"Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit." ~ Frank Borman
"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things." ~ Henry Miller
"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." ~ Saint Augustine
Where to go?
USA, Russia, England, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Turkey, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. I'm blessed to have seen so many places, and yet there are so many more I long to visit. This year, I spent a week in Taiwan. I took many trains and buses to literally circle the island, going from Taipei in the north to the southern most point of Kenting.
Take a friend or make a new one!
"A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles." ~ Time Cahill
Whether traveling, always take or make a friend because life is best when you have someone to share it with. That's why I like to organize school trips or travel with my family. At SCIS, I've helped to organize trips to Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, China Trips and though we did not get to go, Germany and Poland.
So many of my travels have been aided by the great advice of friends and strangers. Because of that, when I travel, I always try to give back to the world by sharing my thoughts on Trip Advisor . . . At last check, Trip Advisor says my reviews have been read by more than 65,000 people! It might sound silly to celebrate this, but I've received over a hundred emails from travelers asking my opinion, and I always try to answer as best I can!
