The bush sure is one magical place. It is something I’ve always seen on TV, but never imagined I would have the opportunity to actually witness myself.

We stayed at 2 different private game reserve, where we saw very different vegetation and landscape. Both had amazing rangers and trackers that educated us on the animals, plants, and environment, every safari drive was a unique experience, nothing is ever the same. This truly was a once in a lifetime experience, I feel so blessed to have been able to experience it, and encourage the ones that are interested and able, to go out and experience the bush for yourself. I hope that one day I’ll be able to come back again!

The Wild Side

Home is where the heart is

Sorry for the 2 weeks break on here guys! I took a long overdue 2 week vacation home to Taiwan at the beginning of February, and it was amazing! I don’t get to go home as often as I would like anymore ever since I started working because tickets are quite pricey and it takes almost 24 hrs to get home, which means I’ll have to at least be able to take off a week of work to make going home worth the time and money. But going home always makes me so happy, even if it’s only 2 short weeks. I was so glad to be home and see my friends and family. It was a not too short but not too long vacation, and I miss it so much already.

This year, I was able to go home for Chinese New Year for a little over 2 weeks! This trip has been in the planning since last summer, and I was beyond excited when it was actually time to travel. Unlike past trips home, this year Brian came with me and he was able to meet my family and friends and see me in my comfort zone. And this time I also made a conscious decision to spend more time with my family, which I’m very glad I did. When I was younger, I spent most of my time home with my friends and I barely get to spend any quality time with my parents and grandparents, as I grow older I’m starting to realize and appreciate more of the importance of family, though I didn’t get to see all the friends I would like this time around, I’m so glad I was able to spend a lot of time with my family.

Here are some of the pictures I’ve taken during my trip home with my (and some from my friend’s) iPhone! This year since Brian was with me we did a lot more tourist-y things and saw a lot of places I usually wouldn’t (and some that I’ve never been to before). It was a different experience compare to my past trips but in a good way. Hope you enjoy my little photo diary!
