About Me

@the.andrealeung

I tend to look back and reminisce on the best time of my life throughout university while traveling around the world. I love being submerged in such historic culture and can't wait to plan my next trip! Iran, Iceland, and North Korea are next on that list. But as for now, it's back to reality and to dream on...

Live life spontaneously and help energize others along the way. Might as well make your life as exciting and worthwhile as you can! Go for that dream now instead of later, why wait?

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Age 16: first solo international backpacking trip to both east and west coast of Australia

Age 20: first solo around the world trip

Age 23: first time visiting Antarctica

Age 24: first time visiting Mount Everest @EBC (less than 2 weeks before the destructive 7.8-magnitude earthquake that killed thousands)

I had the opportunity to go into an underground coal mine in south-western Turkey. The Turks have been mining in this area since the 1800s but it really set off in the late 1900s. It was such an old operation to see and it felt like I time-traveled back into time to see how they mined coal back in the day. Truly amazing!
UPDATE MAY 2014: This underground Turkey mine collapsed 1 year after my arrival.
