This year, 2016, is the Year of the Monkey on the Chinese Zodiac. The Monkey is commonly regarded as the emblem of trickery. If you want to make sure the new year offers more hope than last year, then you need to outsmart the Monkey.

Culture shock as part of travelling. Arriving in a new country can be quite a challenge, some level of culture shock is inevitable. it is nothing to be afraid of.


Japan is a wonderful country with culture shock for the visitor, especially the “westerners” from non-Asian countries. There are many cultural differences including local languages, concepts of time, meeting and greeting and religion, let alone the traditions of Samurai, Geisha or Ninja, the tea ceremony, calligraphy, pottery, haiku, you name it.


Timing the trip at sakura cherry blossoms season or Summer Festival to explore your “once in a life time experience” in Japan. Of course don’t miss the very best part of Japanese cuisine!

Travelling from Paris to London can be as short as 2.5 hours with Eurostar high-speed train. That means you can enjoy the best croissant in Paris in the morning and indulge in a spot of afternoon tea in London with style.


Of course don’t miss the famous British icons like Big Ben, Tower Bridge, big wheel London eye, London Queen’s Guards, double-decker buses and even the red phone booth.

If there was no heatwave, which its temperature soared to 39.7 degrees Celsius and claimed as many as 3,000 lives, I would love Paris with a view of famous attractions like the Arc de Triomphe or the Eiffel Tower, the classical or chic fashion style from Paris and the world’s very best restaurants.

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves, and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” – Pico Iyer


Truthfully though, your next stop is home too, and the next. Enjoy the travelling.

If you want something natural, but fed up with florals, galaxy print would be an alternative choice. 


Galaxy inspired print clothing has been a hit in recent years, beautiful shirts, dresses and tank tops featuring real astrophotography. It would be awesome to make your own galaxy clothing of the whole solar system and planets with star prints!
