    People, please pay some respect to history.

    People, please pay some respect to history.

    I have been wanting to talk about this place for a very long time - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin. I visited this popular tourist site back in October 2018 (Some background: I am from Hong Kong and was in Denmark for a semester exchange. I loves museums and I personally really like history and cultures although I am a business major!) There are two sides of the whole memorial experience - so basically the indoor part is the museum where texts, graphics and photos were shown. There is a quota for each round of visit, so be sure you go there earlier as we have to queue for a bit! The outdoor area is shown in my photo above, and you can stay there for as long as you want to. After all, this was definitely one of the heaviest, saddest and most emotional places I have been to. I literally wanted to cry when I was there and i couldn't finish reading everything shown. I couldn’t never imagine being a Jew in the 1930s/40s..

    Lost Baggage in Taiwan

    Lost Baggage in Taiwan

    Lost or misused things is a conspicuous worry for explorers and transportation substances the same (Saber, Inc., 2002). By and by, baggage is perceived as lost or misled when a traveler endeavor to get their things toward the finish of a trip and understands that the pack isn't there (Cash, Offutt, & Yourek, 2002). The traveler should then locate the appropriate baggage agent, some of the time hold up in long queues, and report the pack as missing. For the most part, the transportation bearer is first alarmed that a pack has been lost when the voyager reports that the specific bag didn't show up alongside different bags from a similar flight (Cash et al., 2002). However, this was not the case that my Filipino companion had encountered.

    Not all roads

    You'll notice that before you clicked on this image, it seemed crisp, vivid, and clear. From far away, this is the perfect image of McLean Falls, a famous spot in The Catlins that I've seen on almost everyone's New Zealand trip feeds. From far away, this shot is serene and lush. The greenery contrasts so sharply with the falls, like something you might only see on a computer desktop background. As a small thumbnail image in my phone gallery, I had captured the perfect picture of my trip.

    Yountville - Bay Area Weekend Getaway Extraordinaire

    Yountville - Bay Area Weekend Getaway Extraordinaire

    " Where to go in wine country for a day or two?", you ask. My enthusiastic reply of late is “Yountville”! With so much to offer: eats and drink within a four block area, Yountville is one of my favorite places in NorCal wine country. No designated driver? No worries; park and walk the whole town in a leisurely day. Better yet, stay the night in one of its many hotels and inns. Yountville runs high on luxury, indulgence and beauty, but maintains a quaint charm and sense of ease. It is also accessible to both Napa and Sonoma, and only about an hour from the city.

    Get in Loser, We’re Going to Okc

    I have roamed the streets of Oklahoma City for my entire life, and I won’t lie to you, it isn’t the most glamorous city on the surface. It is often an afterthought when it comes to vacations and is a misunderstood city in general.
