During this voyage I realized that traveling alone is the biggest experiment I can conduct on myself. I say that because since I am the only person making decisions in new places, I can see the immediate results of my decisions and how exactly I react to new environments. I know I can see how decisions and environment affect me at home, but not quite as explicit as when I am this isolated and controlled subject. I can trace exactly how I met a person and what I did that lead to my circumstance right now.
When traveling alone, I’m an isolated variable and my new contexts are new experiments.
Hoi An is a beautiful port city with buildings painted with bright colors like yellow and turquoise, once colonized by the Chinese for its premium location in Southeast Asia. In Vietnamese, this dreamy city’s name means ‘peaceful gathering’ and when I was here, the open spaces and clear air refreshed my mind that I almost forgot about all the busy ruckus left behind in Hanoi.
Nice shots! :)

My friend Anna and I moseyed on over to the Cambridge River Festival – which, due to construction, was held in Central Square and not actually on the river – today. There were lots of artists and vendors, music, and performers. It was great fun! I even bought a cute glass frog to add to my collection of crawly animal figurines.
Looks like a wonderful event! :)

A hawker selling food on the backstreets. This is still a common sight in Penang. They are largely “extinct” in most other cities and urban towns in Malaysia where they operate in hawker centres and markets. Penang is considered a hawker food heaven among the Malaysian Chinese population and deservedly so.

I like seeing people going about their daily lives. Scenes that some might walk by and not think anything about, I like to stop and capture. These big cities are filled with endless opportunities for capturing people just being people.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Asheville NC is a mini hipster mountain city within the state of North Carolina. Strolling downtown you are likely to see at least one person barefoot, one musician busker on every block, and one vegetarian restaurant. Asheville provides surreal mountain scenery surrounding the city, making it a prime location for outdoorsy types, hippies, health snobs, yogis, and hipsters. The town is quite quirky and filled with lots of character.
Going along with its hippy nature, it is also quite sustainable, providing many local businesses and local food.
Good shot! :)
