Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

Hello from Moscow! It’s been raining a lot when we arrived, unfortunately we chose a damp, drizzly and cold summer day to go to Red Square at the heart of the city.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” ― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

A slice of Copenhagen

Officially am the mad Asian girl snapping away with her iPhone, at architecture that citizens of Denmark would have seen all their lives.
