Current Travels

Since October 2015, I travel to a new destination (or at least, take a flight/bus ride) every month. This would be my diary space, capturing my current adventures in Vietnam & beyond, and the typical daily musings of a twenty-something.

Memories

Friends often ask me about where to go, what to do, eat in cities I’ve lived or visited. Or friend would ask about tips to survive in NYC on a broke budget ($800 including rent!), how to find an apartment – quick & cheap, and a gazillion of insane stories in gotham. Plus, I’m a nostalgic person :) so here would be my space to revisit some good ole’ memories.
