Amanda & Centurion: The Journey of the Soul

Every voyage is a journey of the soul.

I have been living abroad for so many years and traveling so many times, still, expectations of every trip never wane. Every time, I couldn’t help but wonder that how much I could enhance my inner self, how much myths could be unlocked, how many pieces could be reorganized, how much impurities could be deposited, how many horizons would be expanded, and how much calm I could obtain!
Everyone grows in a miscellaneous way. Some grow up in the integration of gender relations, others grow up in the tension of parent-child relationship,

Solo Traveler: What a personality, Dublin!

Bars in rain

Dublin, the capital of Ireland, emits a peculiar atmosphere. It is the merge of industrial decadence and rustic gloom. The weather in Dublin is just like London, where it rains all the time.
Speaking of Ireland, the most famous music figure is definitely U2! They were middle school classmates and used to hang together. Out of the blue, they have become world famous rock stars!! On my way from the airport to the hotel, we passed by the school where they went to, and the taxi driver even helped me get some photos.
There are a lot of bars in Dublin,

Amanda & NaSaDen: The Ability developed from Traveling Alone: Stay Calm When in Peril

Castle in heavy rain
Continuing the previous two articles, “The ability of solo traveler,” this one aims to share “Stay calm when in peril.”
In 2017, I went on a trip to the country of the fairy tale—Prague. On the hill, there was the world’s largest castle “Prague Castle”. As I admired the scenery, I slowly climbed up the mountain top.
Outside the ancient castle, a huge square resided, and a stage was being built in the middle of the square. When I took a closer look…wow! It turned out that there was a classical Jazz crossover performance by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic in the evening.

The New Stage

Transforming the life experiences of the world-traveling into inspirational elements of the work

 
My extreme curiosity started at a very young age of mine. Wherever or whatever there is a new place or stuff, I just got to try and experience myself.
In early 2012, a sudden thought came to me out of nowhere—Moving to New York—and I DID! With not much money and without any specific reason, I literally moved there by the end of 2012. I didn’t even know why I should make such a decision like this, perhaps, I was just answering the inner callings from my soul.

Amanda & Alloya: The Life-Saver for My Nails

Alloya is a life-saver which solved my troubles for many years!

I believe that many girls would likewise adore the gorgeous effects of gel nail, but our nails just couldn’t bear those trimming and grinding during the removal. I once had my manicure done in three consecutive months, as a result, my nails turned fragile and sensitive. Even my manicurist warned me that I should let my nails rest for a few months. Actually, after such incidence, I dare not to do any gel nail again, because health is always way more important than anything,

Amanda & NaSaDen: Home, Sweet Home

Home and Inner Child

Starting from the age of 20, most of the time, I have lived abroad. Therefore, the time I spent in Taiwan was not much, and let alone my hometown, Taichung.
After all these years, even though my personality has already been integrated into many westernized thinkings, aesthetics, and behavioral patterns. After all, growing up in Taiwan, spending so many important and critical periods such as childhood and teenagehood here, I still own fresh and genuine memories of my hometown and my childhood. All of the great times are always so profound and they are deeply rooted in my heart.

Amanda & MJ-BOX: The Ability Developed from Traveling Alone: Flexibility

Traveling alone is the best chance to exercise your “inner muscles”.

In addition to the “Intuitions” that I have shared before, this time I’m going to talk about the ability to “Flexibility”.
Keep your brain nimble at all times
Anything could happen once you are in an exotic place and nothing is familiar with you. Therefore, this is the moment that calm is your only true friend. Then, you have to play it by ear and try to come up with any possible solution.
I could still recall my adventure of a performance trip to Rome. I had someone arrange my accommodation and the landlady would be my accompany.

Solo Traveler: Oh Well… Marseille

Old Port City — What a bummer!

After traveling so many places in the world, I have never felt so uncomfortable with any European city, and Marseille…would sadly be the first one…
Having spent a luxurious birthday and Christmas in Monaco, the next stop I planned to go was Marseille. Before departure, the concierge told me to be very careful since the place was quite disordered, and especially, I was traveling alone. Therefore, I dare not to take the train after hearing such comments about Marseille. I immediately booked a private driver. Soon we had arrived at Marseille.
