Something about… Taroko, Taiwan. Visiting Quishui Cliff, Swallow Grotto, Shakadang Trail, and more. Then I started to appreciate the stunning beauty of the Taroko Gorge in the rain under the mysterious overcast.
We had fun in Bergen and Norway in a Nutshell is the perfect way for us to move on to Oslo. Yet… if I am just to describe all the places that I saw (although I will, a little bit with photos :P). I would like to share some tips for you to enjoy the tour a little bit more! Some tips that travel books may not talk about… As I said in the heading – Making the most out of Norway in a Nutshell!
The Lake District, actually (to me), doesn’t have many “one-of-a-kind”, unique, or iconic attractions compared to any other English towns in England; however it has a subtle beauty and a poetic quality that inspired countless artists, poets, writers, and basically everyone who visited the region or called it home.

I have been to Los Angeles more than I could remember… but I have never come around to see the city. Until one time I had a 12-hour window to take a quick spin in the downtown of Los Angeles by metro…
The realm of North Korea is mysterious. Technically, the country is still at war. At the end of the Korea War, a 250kms long & 4 km wide strip of desolated land was established, and the strip is called the DMZ.

Another amazing find would be the hot-spring resort in Minami (Southern) Aso that has INDIVIDUAL, OUTDOOR, IN-ROOM, PRIVATE hot spring at an amazing price that’s hard to believe!!
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.
Winter in England – Grey, dreary, rainy… Somehow, the old English streets and shambles have a particular kind of tragic romance and beauty of the December rain. York is one of the most visited English cities, and it is the “York” that today’s New York is referring. New York has sparkled and become the city
The Matsuyama experience continues in the beautiful Dōgo Onsen… Ride the classic locomotive, watch the cock tower chimes, shop for great local products, and enjoy a historic japanese hot spring bath experience!
