Hallstätter See

This is truly one of the very places I dreamed countless time in my childhood… always wished one day my Prince Charming would take me there with his white horse… hahaha

I was a very sheltered kid growing up… never imagined I would grow up to this brave cool girl who is so fearless and so adventurous…

It took me a while traveling from Italy to Germany then finally drove myself to this very special place… Hiking up through the village… listening to the birds singing along the way… enjoying the amazing and peaceful view… even when the clouds occasionally decided to pour some rain over the village… that was one of the best days I have had so far in my life! =)

Travel opened my eyes… blessed me with so many precious experiences… taught me I can always trust myself, helped me realize how brave I am… and how much I must cherish, love and enjoy life no matter what…

Be well y’all! Have a wonderful summer! =)

The whole town turned into a party town on that Wednesday night… or has it always been like that in Florence?

Not sure if these two locals were on their way to their parties that night? Maybe?

Fun place for sure… much fancier than New Orleans… and less crazier than Vegas… What am I talking about… scratch all that…

This is Florence… a place for all the coolest dreamers! ;)

Happy humpday y’all!

The rain suddenly started falling…She walked towards the lake while she was waiting for her tour bus taking her to her next adventure… Then the swans joined her… It was so beautiful, almost felt it was a scene from a fairy-tale…

This beautiful moment only existed because of that rain…

Like a blessing this rain came… Life is so beautiful… so so beautiful!

Hot summer afternoon roughly an hour before the sun was about to set… my feet were in so much pain I wanted to cry after a whole day walking around the city, plus my extensive daily 12+ hours walking in Rome for good three days prior.

Seeing this view paid off all my pain!

After countless museum visits, I eventually realized museum is not my thing… But yet, I found myself standing here at the Vatican Museum.

The only reason I was there was I wanted to photograph this stunning staircase designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932.

Yes I am serious!

Similar to my February Chicago visit… the Arctic storm did not stop me just because I was way too curious about if the city was really that mysterious in the winter like how it got presented by this Instagram photographer… and if not… would I be able to create a similar vibe in my photos… And the only way for me to find it out was going there!

Crazy things we do for our photos, right?! ;)
