Brugge, Belgium

Greetings from Belgium! 

It's so good to be back in Europe just less than two weeks before Christmas, even it's freezing here in Brussels but I'd take that as an excuse to put on my winter outfit. While it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here and everywhere around the world, this time I have a little mission to find the world's prettiest Christmas market. We don't really have Christmas market in Asia so it's always good to experience the cold weather, hot wine, hot chocolate, just a magical Christmas with all classic Christmas songs on repeat. I did a little research about the prettiest Christmas markets months before I booked my flight tickets to Europe and I decided to put Belgium, Prague and Austria on my list. 

When you're visiting Belgium, I think everyone would recommend you to visit Brugge as well. This postcard-perfect town located about an hour by train from Brussels offer not only magical Christmas vibe ( if you visit around December ), picturesque corners, a lot of cafes and restaurants with wide array of food choices but also a charming town overall that you know you'd love to return anytime any day in a heartbeat. Sure Belgium has the best beers and chocolates, dreamy little towns like Brugge but it's definitely the PEOPLE and frites ( with samourai sauce please ) that make me want to return one day.

Top 10 Most Colorful Cities In The World

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would visit these colourful cities around the world. When I ask God and the universe to simply give me a colourful, meaningful life - I never expected they would give me this grand adventure. From dancing on Club Med's stage to a beautiful year in Disney World, to days full of music with Spotify and a lot of travel schedules in between... I always remind myself that nothing lasts forever, so enjoy the moment. Embrace change and live out loud. Here are my top 10 favorite colorful cities around the world. Let me know if you have any favorite colorful cities that you personally think it's unique and I should visit. 

 Cape Town, South Africa

Burano, Italy

Menton, France

Bergen, Norway

Copenhagen, Denmark

Santorini, Greece

30 Before 30

“I went around the world, because in the end, it was just a little further. Because time ceased to exist, and the fleeting moments of chance encounters along the way were the only thing that mattered.”

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year! What has been the highlight of your year so far? For me, 2018 has been incredibly special, also challenging. From hiking Table Mountain, South Africa on my birthday to visiting Hawaii, Japan and Norway for the first time, and I even got to perform on stage with some of my favorite pole dancers last July, I’m so grateful most of my dreams have come true this year. Sometimes I have to pinch myself every time I visit new places, meet new people on the road or simply just having a quiet moment to reflect on the past, HOW DID I GET SO LUCKY? While 2017 taught me A LOT about self love, this year life taught me more about letting go. Letting go of control, toxic people in your life, some opportunities that unfortunately not meant to be yours, someone you love, things you don’t really need, expectations, comforts, doubts, worries, etc. And instead trust the process, allow life to happen. The moment you find the courage to let go, you’ll start receiving miracles. Talking about miracles, below are some of my favorite pictures from 30 countries I’ve been fortunate enough to visit. Every picture tells a story, a dream. I’m so happy to see not only my photography is improving but also I get to reinvent myself all the time through good and bad times for the past 8 years. The truth is, you find yourself when you travel. It took me a while to decide my top 5 favorite countries but I’d say: Indonesia, Italy, Nepal, Myanmar and South Africa. What’s on my bucket list? Bhutan, Peru ( basically South America ), Africa, New Zealand, India and maaaany more. A girl can dream.
