Last night in Russia with an affordable but classy meal in C.D.L. – “Central House of Writers”.
Arriving the unique communist country, Cuba, I had a kinda bizarre adventure with the taxi driver on the way to my hotel.
Taipei, Taiwan – The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind would be the mouth-watering, scrumptious and savory street food in the night markets (Shilin Night Market, Raohe Street Night Market, Ningxia Night Market, Gongguan Night Market, maybe a little farther, Keelung Night Market). All kinds of Taiwanese-style bubble tea, oyster pancake, mini hot-pot, barbeque
Getting around the romantic Paris Vélib’ing to many iconic landmarks and attractions in a day for free (almost).
Let’s talk about Green Travel. The Keukenhof in Amsterdam is the biggest Tulip garden in the world and it’s the best time to view the tulip blossoms in mid-March to May!
…Walking on the shopping street in the city center, there were satin shops, vintage toy stores, street vendors, and ice-cream parlors serving desserts with a chairlift shaped waffles and a baby umbrella – everything looks like Hong Kong in the 70s, a setting of a Wong Kar Wai movie – ‘in the mood of love’….
It is one of the most important and largest art museums in the world, where it would take you days, or even months to appreciate the precious exhibits one by one.
That was also the time I visited the Alexander McQueen’s exhibition – Savage Beauty. It was one of the most unforgettable and core-shaking exhibition that I have seen in recent years.
The great thing about DDP is because it’s open for public, it’s permenant, it’s located in a prime location, it has shops and it constantly has different theme exhibitions; therefore, people from all walks of life could be inside the building and “enjoy something” with it.
Unlike many Europe cities, Porto is hilly. Although it doesn’t has a spectacular harbor view from the peak like Hong Kong, it has a double-deck iron bridges that spans the Duoro River. Standing on the hundred-year-old Dom Luis I bridge I could view seagulls soaring freely over the body of water, and layers and layers of houses making a concerted effort to Porto’s spectacular skyline.
The recent Rubles drop really saved a lot on my travel budget to Russia; I joined a Moscow Free Tour for the second day of my trip – All in all, this tour covers a great deal of Moscow classics, and travelers should (like us) definitely explore them one by one afterwards!
