Welcome to a View of the World Through My Lens

Hey everyone! First of all, I’d like to welcome you to my personal blog, where you will be able to read some of my travel stories. People who know me personally would say that I’ve been a social science enthusiast since I was a child and to live that enthusiasm as an adult has made me feel immensely blessed.

My humble blog is not your typical travel blog – I didn’t have much preparation setting this up nor do I have the instruments and marketing to make this as a commercial blog. I was motivated to create this blog after three of my friends separately recommended that I set up one as I’ve been traveling around the world with much passion, knowledge and excitement. I would say that I’m still private about my experience, let alone my travel experiences. But this might be the right time to share some of my moments with the rest of the world… to show its beauty through my lens, my perspective and through the incidental experiences and lessons I have learned along my travel routes.

From here, I don’t know how this blog would eventually become. Would it last a year? Maybe a couple more? I used to write a lot when I was more introverted but would I be inspired enough to frequently write new posts? Only time will tell and I will keep it as it is. What I know is that, with this medium of expression, perhaps I would be able to draw in readers who share an authentic passion about the world – the history of civilizations, empires and modern states; the diversity in languages, culture and cuisine; and perhaps, friendships and connections derived from a common interest in these things and in travel.

For now, I hope you will have a pleasant time in my blog. I’ll stay in touch more with all of you soon.

...social science enthusiast since I was 5 years old My travel experiences have been motivated by my desire to satisfy my childhood self's deepest desire and affinity to geography, world history, cultures and languages. This blog is not your regular travel blog - not at all fueled by profit; but rather, that my adventures would resonate to many of the 7 billion people in this planet... to meet people with similar hobbies, to exchange stories and ideas with faraway friends, to travel in behalf of others or with people who couldn't physically do it themselves, and hopefully, to inspire people to achieve their dreams.
