European Brazil

GREECE | Sun, 7 Jul 2013 | By joannawong | Views [519]

I like how in Greece, you have enough time to procrastinate AND still follow through with your plans. It's happened nearly everyday. I wake up after a sleep in, ponder if it's too late to do what I planned, decide to linger in thought, walk to the beach ... Read more >

A Day in Athens

GREECE | Tue, 2 Jul 2013 | By joannawong | Views [452]

I turned up to Athens with the lowest of expectations after hearing countless mixed reviews of Athens in the past. Most were quite negative, dismissing the city as not worth visiting. As far as I was concerned, it was just a stepping stone to get to ... Read more >

Last Day in Paris

FRANCE | Sun, 26 May 2013 | By joannawong | Views [538]

I have to be honest. I am feeling a little blue today. It feels strange being alone again after having my parents accompany me (sometimes grudgingly because I make them walk too much) for two and a half weeks. Seeing them leave today mean going back ... Read more >

Viva Brazil

BRAZIL | Wed, 8 May 2013 | By joannawong | Views [521]

I feel like I will REALLY leave my heart in this gorgeous country.  Today's breathtaking memory: Dangerously perched at the edge of a rock, watching the waves violently crash and mingle at Joatinga at sunset. It was like watching fireworks but ... Read more >

The Inca Trail

PERU | Sun, 21 Apr 2013 | By joannawong | Views [635]

It's hard to believe that I've now ticked off some major items on my bucket list in the space of two months. The Inca Trail is the latest to be crossed off   Before the trail, I was very anxious and nervous as to how it would pan out. I had ... Read more >

Happy Easter from New York!

USA | Sun, 31 Mar 2013 | By joannawong | Views [599]

I nearly skipped Easter mass today because I was slightly hesitant about going to a foreign church. I was unsure of how the mass would be, what the parish was like, what the dress code would be, among all the other things a fearful person might wonder ... Read more >

Last day in SF!

USA | Wed, 27 Feb 2013 | By joannawong | Views [442]

I spent my last day chilling out in the Mission District. It was refreshing to get out to somewhere without the tourists. I'm not entirely sure if you could call the Mission "da hood". But it reminded me of my favourite suburb in Brisbane - West ... Read more >

I'm in San Francisco!

USA | Sun, 24 Feb 2013 | By joannawong | Views [448]

An interesting start to say the least - thanks to a few unexpected nuances.  Despite the hurdles, I'm here! :) I'm not sure if I'm a huge fan of SF yet. The roads, trams/trolleys/cable cars, hoards of tourists confuse me. It took quite ... Read more >
