Life is short. If I learn anything from books and movies, most stories are about people taking chances in life. They made the choice to take those chances. They make their stories worthy of telling. I want to have a story of my own.
Life is short. I believe in afterlife and if people from the other side were to ask me how my life was, I would tell them how much I loved my family and friends, and that I could never ask for a better life. I always feel blessed.
Life is short. There are so many stories out there in the world, stories from the past, stories from 7 billion people living in this world and stories yet to be told. Stories that one would never have the chance to hear.
Traveling is just one of perks of life which I want to experience. I’m grateful to have been able to experience it. It would be a part of my story, a journey of many stories. And just like our ancestors who engraved stories on cave walls not knowing what the future will hold, I want to share mine on this blog. It would be proof that I set foot in many cities with stories much different with mine, but with the same subject, living life.
Because at the bottom line, we are living on the same Earth. It is just plain sad to me to leave the only home I would have ever had without really seeing what it looks like.
Hopefully, I will see enough of the world to my own satisfaction. But clearly it would never be enough. One step at a time.
Compared to many experienced travelers/writers on WordPress, I am relatively new to travel journalism, but have always been fascinated by it. Born in Indonesia and currently living in Singapore, I am thankful to be able to see the beauty of nearby countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia since the start of 2014. Taiwan is the furthest country I visited since I started working on this blog and it is also where it all began. I learned so much from traveling to all these places and from experiencing new things. I enjoy writing about places I visited and reading from blogs on the same interest.
I wish to have my blog to be a guide for those who want to travel. Also, my writing is not just simply a piece of writing. I want to improve my writing skills, in any way I can. I enjoy every part of it and I want to do more of it in the future.
