About Me


Give thanks when all go well, persevere when things go wrong


Hi everyone, it's Sylvia from Hong Kong:)
Nice to meet you all !!! I'm a travel lover. It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beautiful things in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.


Traveling is like dating with the world:)
"When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile"

Teach, Learn, Share

“What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like - love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. ---Letters to Juliet
