2 nights in Venice, 1 day in Milan

The last part of my Italy trip consisted of 2 nights in Venice and a day trip to Milan. Both cities were more than I had dreamed of – Venice being the romantic city above the water with a life of its own, Milan being full of hustle bustle, with larger buildings and fancy shopping … Continue Reading

2 days in Florence, Italy

Like Rome, Florence was another beautiful city with its own historical and architectural flavor. My mother and I actually didn’t stay here a full two days, since we traveled from Rome the first day and traveled to Venice the next afternoon. I wish we had more time to explore the city, but I’m glad we … Continue Reading

3 days in Rome, Italy

Just like my Paris trip the previous month, my long-awaited trip to Italy was also a culturally enriching experience that left me completely dazzled.

The Grand Palace in Bangkok

Visiting the Grand Palace in Bangkok was probably the highlight of my trip in Thailand. It was truly a surreal experience walking through the palace grounds in all its splendor. タイのメディアツアーの中で最も楽しみにしていたのがバンコクの王宮での訪問でした。こんなに立派な王宮を訪れるのは人生で初めてで、その品のある輝きには圧倒されました。 One of the first things I noticed before entering the palace was the amount of people dressed in black from head to toe, waiting … Continue Reading

5 Temples to visit in Thailand – Bangkok and Ayatthuya

The first 2 days during the media tour in Thailand were spent sight-seeing various temples and the Grand Palace (I will blog about this in a separate post later).

The Landmark Hotel & Spa Bangkok

Last week, I went on a blogger media tour in Bangkok, Thailand in celebration of the 130th year between the diplomatic relations between Thailand and Japan.

During … Continue Reading

A cherry blossom heaven in Nara

Nara was our last stop for the Global Travel Blogger Summit, and I can’t think of a better way to conclude this amazing trip. Our host, Hiro, is an expert when it comes to Nara, and he took Lena, Melina and I on a bicycle tour through the best cherry blossom spots in town. We … Continue Reading
