Home, Sweet Home

These photos were taken about a month ago a few days after our arrival in Seoul. So far, my experience has been more interesting than exciting. I’m actually not sure how to accurately describe what I’m feeling towards it. I feel at home but at the same time I could not feel more awkward at…

Florence: A Colorful History

flore35

The first thing I noticed about Florence is the colors. It’s one of the major factors that differentiates it from other cities in Italy which I’m inspired to apply onto my wardrobe. Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of Florence where you will find rooms filled with art from top to bottom. No matter how hard…

Florence: Home of Beautiful Things

Heard that the Statue of Liberty in New York was inspired by this. Do you see the resemblance? Where Leonardo Da Vinci, the greatest artist of all time, is buried. I actually found out that his tomb was located at this church after seeing his name there. I know most people get a lot of…

I’m stranded at home for another week due to a complete lack of wardrobe both appropriate for the weather…

Photo taken during a short break from the reality show. The day we decided to finally visit the Musee d’Orsay, it was…

Duomo di Milano: The Largest Cathedral in Italy

“What a wonder it is! So grand, so solemn, so vast! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful! A very world of solid weight, and yet it seems …a delusion of frostwork that might vanish with a breath!… The central one of its five great doors is bordered with a bas-relief of birds and…
