Taiwan has always been known to have some of the best food in the world. If you ask Taiwanese Americans what they miss most from Taiwan (if they’ve ever visited), I’d be shocked if not every single one of them answered food. Taiwanese cuisine will always have a special place in my heart, and I want to share with everyone what Taiwan has to offer. So with that, let’s jump into the 10 best snacks that…

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin One of the best experiences you can have in life is traveling with friends. Whether you are hopping on a plane or into the car, going anywhere with your friends and family makes you feel complete.

    The Best Day in Karuizawa, Japan

    If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo for a day or two, there are plenty of amazing towns within 2 hours of Tokyo. One of my favorite day trips outside of Tokyo is the town, Karuizawa. It’s about a 1 and a half hour train ride from Tokyo Station. In the past, Karuizawa visitors was limited to wealthy families that could afford a summer home in the area. Due to the higher elevation and mountain terrain, Karuizawa stays much cooler than Tokyo. Today, many people visit during summer and winter to experience all of the activities the area has to offer. I had the pleasure of…

    7 of the Best Experiences in London

    I love cities that have a ton of history. So naturally, London was at the top of my list of places to visit. When I found a travel deal to London in December 2016, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. Fast forward 4 months, my friend and I are on the 11-hour flight to London. I’m not going to lie…the flight was awful. But I’m not here to give a negative review for the flight. The point of this post is to share my most memorable moments in London. December is one of the peak travel seasons for London. The flight was crowded, the streets were crowded, and just about everywhere…

    A Day at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka

    If you’ve never been to Japan, then just stop everything right now and go! I’m joking…but it should definitely be on your bucket list. Japan is an amazing country that is completely different from anywhere you’ve ever been before. The first time I went to Japan as an adult, I lived there for 5 months and it blew my mind. It was totally different from what I had imagined. I have so much to say about Japan, but this post is about Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. Dare I say it’s better than the Orlando and Hollywood locations? Let’s just say it’s different. In the process of doing research for…
