Catching You Up

I’ve already begun the second stage of my travels in 2015–I’m in the Netherlands now!–so instead of fretting about trying to catch up, which will only stress me out and make me more inclined to avoid posting, I will start off with this catch-up post, and proceed by alternating recent posts with posts about my previous Southeast Asia trip.

Really quickly, here is what I’ve been up to these past six weeks.

In early March, I returned to Taiwan from Thailand.


For one week in mid-March, I was in Hong Kong, working installation and de-installation at an international art show. I spent most of my days (and some nights, hah) in the convention center, but on my days off I explored as much of Hong Kong’s easily reachable greenery as I could.

After Hong Kong, I returned to Taiwan for a few more days, just enough time to celebrate my birthday and prepare… to return back to New Jersey for the first time since 2013!

Bookworm confession time: it made me SO happy to be able to spend time with my books again.


It was nice to see family and hometown friends again after so long, and to be within easy access of BOOKS. But my three weeks at home weren’t all lazy relaxation, as I rushed to prepare for my upcoming Eurotrip and even go into New York City and down to Washington, D.C. to visit friends.

I was in DC in time to see the cherry blossoms bloom, which is something that, nature chaser as I am, I’ve only wanted to do since forever.


Then, on April 14th, I boarded a plane at JFK Airport on my way to the Netherlands–but first with a seven-hour layover in Oslo, Norway, which I had built into my plans so I could explore another city new to me.

I am already in love with Europe. Thanks, classy architecture.

Okay, seriously, I WILL be back more regularly now.

    Aw, I miss Taiwan, I feel like I’m due for a trip back.
    And Europe!! How long are you there for and do you know where you’re headed yet? I’m backpacking around in May-June, perhaps we will cross paths! 🙂

      Oh, you’ll be in Europe soon as well??! I’m in the UK for basically all of May; not sure where I’ll be in June yet…. Do let me know if our paths can cross!

    I’m looking forward to your reportage from Europe; and “compare and contrast” blogs [east vs. west]
