十五 | TEDx WanChai

October 29th, 2016 For those who know me, you may already know that I’m a big fan of TED. If I’m ever watching something it’s either Japanese Anime, NBA basketball, or TED talks. I even have a little dream to give my own TED talk one day, so being able to attend a TEDx event ...

十四 | Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival

October 30th, 2016 After a rough 4 nights studying back to back for midterms, I had a pretty exciting weekend to relieve the stresses. Starting of with the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival! This is held every fall lasting 4 nights at the Central Harbourfront. There are hundreds of stalls set up festival-style with ...

Raíces: Universidad Nebrija II

Hi everyone, I want to dedicate this post to students considering study abroad at Nebrija. I will talk about the university, what it is like to study there and what my experience has been like thus far. I know almost all of my posts have been about my travels, so I hope to make this one more ...

Raíces: Andalucía II

Málaga Málaga is a port city 100 miles (160 km) south of Córdoba, about a two-hour drive. It is a beautiful city with amazing views, great food (especially fish) and nice people like everywhere else I’ve been in Spain. It was definitely worth the visit. Granada Granada is 78 miles (126 km) northeast of Málaga, ...

〇 | Hong Kong.

September 2nd , 2016 So today concludes my first full week here in Hong Kong. All seven days have been quite adventurous… a little more than I expected, which is great! There’s also no sign of me recovering from jetlag just yet, I don’t know what time zone I’m running on. I wake up at ...

三 | MTR>MTA>SEPTA

September 11th, 2016 The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) is easily the greatest public transportation system I have yet to experience. It’s so simple and easy to get around. There is pretty much an MTR stop near every destination you would want to go to in Hong Kong, and if not there will be connecting busses ...

五 | Food for thought

September 18th, 2016 Because some of the food I had to think twice about haha. But honestly, there’s a plethora of options to eat. Like really, there are restaurants of different cuisines all over. Hong Kong is a place where Western and Eastern cultures meet, so on the days when I feel a bit homesick ...

八 | Worldly Exchanges

September 26th, 2016 *Not many pictures in this post At Drexel, I never really gave much thought to the international student community. But now that I’m actually an international student here at HKUST I’ve realized that there is so much adjusting that they go through. You have to cope to new living conditions, along with ...

九 | Thailand Part 1

October 1st, 2016 I’m not sure the next time I’ll make it to this hemisphere, so I’m going to try and maximize my travels over here. This sounds quite expensive, yes I’m far from rich, but travel is surprisingly really manageable. Well for one I’m in closer proximity to places like Thailand, mainland China, Japan ...

十 | Thailand Part 2

October 4th, 2016 So adventure number one was to the Chattuchak Weekend Market. We took Bangkok’s Mass Transit System to get there, which was fairly simple to navigate through and very crowded. It was about a 20-minute ride from our stay in Sukhumvit.               Boy oh Boyy the market ...
