day 2138 – iceland stint

second stint in iceland after touring all the europe cities. this time within the twenty six hour layover, i drove nearly five hours to complete the golden circle check points. i was fortunate to catch one of the geyser’s eruption on camera. also saw a a few waterfalls and craters. i’m tired after an overnight bus from paris to london and a flight from london to iceland. i was definitely looking forward to the late instant noodles dinner back at the airbnb

day 2122 – iceland reykavik

first stop of my europe trip is a layover in iceland. twenty two hours to check into my airbnb and go for a crazy drive. made the trek out south to find the black sand beaches, caves and gigantic waterfalls. the most challenging part was trying to find things when all icelandic words are unprounceable. food there was so expensive even for the most basic and bland burger. i was so tired driving seven hours after a red eye flight, but had to suck it up and get back to the airbnb where my instant noodle awaits

solo series [day eight]

today is mainly a transit day with bus rides and plane rides. on my way to japan, but first, a short layover in taiwan. i managed to squeeze in short face time chats at the airport. i landed in osaka slightly past 7:30pm and didn’t get to my b&b until well past 9:30pm so my japan adventures will begin tomorrow

this concludes the hong kong portion of my trip. i had an enjoyable time getting to see all the family in my birth place. i can’t complain about the scheduling because i was able to fit in all the friends i wanted to catch up with. it’s always hard to say goodbye, especially to my ageing grandmas. although i don’t get to physically spend time with my grandparents, we do make frequent calls to keep in touch

i had one of those emotional day last night where i wasn’t quite my composed self. i really shouldn’t have mentioned it to mo because it makes no sense for him to worry about me halfway across the globe. i think i gave him a scare but i’m much more relieved and lighter after talking it over with mo
