The Crest of Surf Photography

•••
What I love about photography is the fact that it can take you to places you've never been to and open up worlds you might have never discovered yourself. A single picture can say more than a thousand words and carry more emotions than the longest love letter. Looking for this kind of inspiration, I like to sit down for a few minutes and browse the web for s[...]

Happy New Year of the Snake

•••
Traveling the world at few or no expenses is one of the many things that I love about New York City. There's of course nothing like an actual trip abroad that comes with the planning, the packing, and the journey itself. And then there also is the ever growing bucket-list: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo, experience Holi, and party at the Chinese New Year. In New Yo[...]

The Mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs

•••
When I first visited Weeki Wachee Springs, I was seven years old and immediately fascinated with the place. I don't quite remember the beautiful scenery, the palm trees, and the crystal clear water in detail but what really amazed me were the Weeki Wachee mermaids who dove in the spring and performed effortlessly on the underwater stage. They seemed perfectl[...]

The Top 10 Most Unusual Hostels

•••
Hostels. Your home away from home. The shack you choose to hunker down in. The wafer thin mattress you lay your weary head on. The packed dorms where you attempt to blank out the epic snorers. The shared bathrooms that may require flip-flops in the shower. We’ve all had our time in hostels that vary in comfort, hygiene and space. Knowing that you have no [...]

•••
Have you ever heard of the fluorescent plankton that lurks out in deep waters? The kind that lights up and glitters when you move through the water? To those who haven’t it may sound like some exotic magical occurrence, and even though I had vaguely heard of it, I had never quite fathomed what it would look like. But lo and behold, on my recent trip to Tha[...]

Top 5 things to do on the Andaman Coast, Thailand

•••
*Sigh*. The Andaman Coast along the province of Krabi, Thailand… full of beautiful sandy beaches, warm calm turquoise waters, heat-stroke inducing sun, tropical landscapes and most magnificently, the incredible limestone geology that results in high and sporadic rugged yellowed cliffs leaping out of the ground! What a place! I've always carried f[...]

5 ways to be a perfect house guest

•••
My roommate and I have a spare room in our flat. It has been spare only in theory the last few months. We seem to have a steady flow of house guests through that small rear room with the round bed and mismatched blankets. We live transient lives in a transient city, and there is almost always someone visiting from out of town or in between housing to occupy [...]

The Little People Project

•••
“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project's slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through [...]

100 little things that travel has taught me

•••
Travel has been one of my most valuable teachers. Rather than sit in a classroom and learn about the world through a someone else's eyes, I did it through adventures and misadventures, tears and laughter. I know I still have so much to discover, but here are some lessons that sometimes I had to learn the hard way. Some of them I already kinda knew, some I ar[...]
