This is my first official (public) blog entry in years. And when I say years, I mean since my high school years! For a long while now, I wanted to start a blog to document my travels and eats and provide tips and/or recommendations on where to visit or what to expect. Unfortunately, my laziness has gotten the best of me – but better late than never, right?
On this journey dubbed “life,” there are a number of things that bring warm and fuzzy feelings to my heart. Traveling and eating are definitely on the top of my warm and fuzzy feelings list.
Whilst studying abroad in college, the world opened itself up to me. I visited Beijing, China and breathed in all the history the forbidden city had to offer. I roamed the streets of Taipei, Taiwan and devoured all of their yummy street foods. And I visited Tokyo, Japan, one of the cities I’ve always dreamed about visiting, and it delivered more than I could have imagined. In short, I realized how BIG the world is and how much there is to discover, experience and learn – be it about the world, the people around me or myself. It was then that I found a new passion and joy in life – traveling.
My lifetime goal is to travel the world. I yearn to see new places, learn new cultures, learn the history, and eat different and yummy foods. Since I’ve graduated college, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to at least one new destination every year. I hope to reach my goal of traveling the world by continuing on that track – visiting a new travel destination every year, and hopefully, when I no longer have to work (or in my retirement years?!), I can finish traveling the world with the love of my life.
So for now, I’m a wannabe avid traveler. For now, my traveling quests typically last two or three weeks once (and if I’m lucky!) or twice a year to a destination of choice. And for now, since I’m not on the road or traveling as much as I would really love to, I reward myself with food – the other joy of my life!
As a food lover, I’m always open to trying new cuisines or new restaurants. I LOVE LOVE LOVE desserts and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE anything spicy or cheesy! Living in Los Angeles, I feel blessed to be surrounded by so many different food choices.
