In March, I flew to Taipei, took a train to beautiful Hualien County on the east coast, and explored the Taroko National Park with my mom and seven-year-old nephew. This place holds a special place in my heart. Of the many trails available, we only got to explore four. Definitely, need to return. How did I get here? Is a story for another day. At the moment, this is just a short picture update.
One of my favourite movies is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The storyline, journey, and film location has brought me to Iceland in 2018, after two years of saving. You see, sometimes a movie is so powerful that it creates a strong connection with its viewer. Such a good movie – and a very good one – will always bring colour and inspiration into someone’s life. When it comes to travelling, we sometimes need some sort of inspiration to push us to get on that plane and to reach our destination. In January 2016, I wrote about movies that will inspire us to travel. I listed five movies, all of which are my favourites. If you haven’t read it already, click here. This time, I list down another five movies and put a link to each, so you can also watch it. Enjoy and be inspired. 1. The Way
Overpacking or underpacking. Aren’t we all guilty of this.
In my early days of travelling, I had done countless overpacking. This habit often attributed to my “just in case I need it” reasoning. I would end up with a bulky bag at the beginning of my trip and have no space for travel souvenirs.
However, over the past years and after many travels, I learned to understand my style, what I need and don’t need. Hence, building a travel capsule wardrobe is important to avoid overpacking and underpacking.
The last time I wore temporary tattoos was during high school. Back then, the design was old school with a lot of black ink. It was the traditional American styles of tattoos – skull, dagger, sailor, heart, bird, and anchor among others. Very rock and roll indeed. The other popular design was tribal.
The airport. You either hate it or love it.I love the airport. What I do not like about it is going through security and customs check. The process can be horrendous and exhausting, to say the least. Especially, when you are in an airport with high passenger traffic.
