During my trek through Germany, I wanted to experience the true flavor of the country. The German Tourism Bureau team was so generous and completely provided a spectrum of activities for my travel taste.

When I first learned that it was Jean’s 30th time to Russia, I couldn’t understand why she’d visited so often—until I took the journey with her.  There is too much to do and [...]

Traveling light is essential.  I used to be that person that packed everything because I couldn’t decide what to wear, so I’d pack more than I need to have outfits for every occasion.  These days, I try to pack minimally to be hassle-free at the airport security line.

How to #ExploreMore in D.C.: My Top Ten

7 Comments 18 June 2014

When you live in a place for a while, even a place as prominent as Washington, D.C., you start to take its beauty, its highlights and its history for granted.  That’s why I love when friends and family come and visit me—it gives me an opportunity to see the city afresh, through their eyes.  I [...]
