Writing the world

66 Articles in this blog

As an avid wanderluster, my tastes in travel are eclectic and always evolving, and as such this collection of blogs reflects my wide-ranging escapes and journeys abroad. In my travel posts, I write to let my passion for adventure unravel as I share my experiences with the world, hoping to inspire and help fellow travellers like myself.

As I continue to embark on eye-opening journeys to new places in order to fulfill my never-ending thirst for adventure, my travel hunger develops and reshapes itself, which means that you'll always find a different trip story in my blog collection, a new perspective on some remote (or not-so-remote) corner of the world, a new adventure I've decided to pursue or a new journey of discovery, not necessarily ignited by a previous one.

It's hard to pinpoint my thirst for travel to one or two kinds of travel experiences - from hiking mountains to snorkelling, diving, dancing, going rogue to find authentic flavours, basking in pampering retreats and beach-combing - I'd take them all, I'll do it all! I prefer to dig beneath the surface when travelling, go off the beaten path every now and then and find meaningful ways to engage with a new culture, but that's not to mean I don't enjoy the odd luxury stay in a glamorous hotel or a gourmet meal every once in a while. My adventures are every kind of adventure, for all keen explorers like myself, scroll down to browse them all!
