Tips

How to Hack Shyness While Traveling Solo 

Social butterfly? Who is that, you wonder. Certainly not you. First of all, you’d never imagine yourself walking in a room full of international people and just waltz yourself from conversation to conversation. There’s just too much about a person looking your way that makes you cringe under a blanket. And more importantly, that’s a lot of energy you’d rather spend on a good book.

Travel

Russia: After the transsiberian (photo story) 

While Russians look so serious, the architecture is probably one of the most playful that I’ve seen. Here’s a photo story of my short trip there. From the excited dinner in Cafe Pushkin after the four day transsiberian, to the subway sight seeing, then the free Moscow tour, Red Square, Kremlin, moving on to Saint Petersburg, St. Isaac Cathedral, and Winter Palace.

Food

Taipei: No meat (vegan/vegetarian) eating 

But for a select bunch of people, Taipei’s no-meat eating options is a delight. So for a day I decided to alter my food preference and see if it works for me. Take note that I’m in no way an expert in the technicalities surrounding veganism and vegetarianism so I’ll just stick to the idea of no meat eating.
