Might be the best thing I've done for myself on my birthday so far.
New York, New York. Can I be more cliche when it comes to this place?
I'm not a big fan of ceremonies. They are meant to be important, and important things make me alert and/or nervous. This might explain my tendency to play down at those "big" moments. When I first got into university, I perceived attending graduation ceremony as a privilege, for a small portion of people. They can… Continue reading Ceremonial Emptiness
Je tiens à exprimer mes remerciements les plus sincères à toutes les personnes qui, au cours des quatre années d’études, m’ont apporté aide, appui et soutien! Ma gratitude chaleureuse va également aux professeurs de notre université. Sans eux, je n’aurais pas pu acquérir des connaissances professionnelles et complètes pendant mes quatre ans d’études de la… Continue reading Remerciements
London is the stage for performing art. In the minimalist style, here is a list of reasons why you need to be there for the show(s).
The Dark Hedges The Giant Causeway (Friend from Shanghai, living in Glasgow) Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. (Trying not to compare with Capilano Suspension Bridge...) A little town called Ballymena.

Healthy whole food with creativity… Continue reading Just A Ferryboat Away (Northern Ireland – Giant Causeway, Belfast, etc. Sept 8-10th)
My original plan for Scotland Highlands was to drive along North Coast 500, stopping at every place for anything that seems spectacular. I couldn't complete that on this trip, but there is one thing I definitely need to do, and that is hitting John O'Groats. John O'Groats, one of the places I don't know how… Continue reading To The End (John O’Groats, Sept. 7th)
It is quite an interesting transport rail in Scotland, as there is no direct train to Inverness from Fort William - if you wanna travel in between these two places by train, you gotta take the train to Glasgow (or Perth) as transit. Bus seems like an ideal way, because the route is right by… Continue reading Where Nessie Lives (Inverness & Loch Ness, Sept. 5th)
On the morning of 3rd, I packed up and left Sligchan camping site. At the Sligchan Inn bus stop, I told myself, “All right, if I can get a car take me back to Portree, I will stay there until the bus to Inverness comes; if I can’t until noon, I will take the bus… Continue reading Fort William, For Your Willingness (Sept 3rd and 4th)
Today's itinerary was something I hesitated about for a few weeks before departure. I heard a little about Isle of Skye, most of which was about how people overrated this place and how everyone should avoid it while doing trips. However, the classic Portree photo won me back in every self debate. Here we go… Continue reading Somewhere over the rainbow, somewhere in the Skye (Ben Nevis to Isle of Skye, September 2nd)
