I’m a qualified dentist in Hong Kong who also has a strong passion for travel and photography. I get inspired by the places I go and sharing my experiences with my followers has become a part of my life.
This might sound crazy, but if that’s the case, I think I’d build myself a spaceship and go to outer space. Just wander around space and probably land on some planet and explore. I’ve always been intrigued by the outer world since I was a little boy, gazing at the countless stars. It’s just so beautiful and mysterious. That would be a big achievement for me personally – and I’m sure the photos would be very Instagrammable!

Bear Grylls, because I could finally experience what I have seen in his shows – and it’s more likely I could survive and make my way back to my normal life.
When we used to do family road trips to the States as a kid. My parents were an amazing driver/navigator duo back when Google Maps didn’t exist. Those were the most exciting and memorable times.
Hard to choose... maybe my Venice ones!
Build your own sense of aesthetics and always allow the place to give you inspiration.
Yes! In fact, I have done it three times already – in Australia, New Zealand and Guam. More to come!
I don’t have any go-to books or blogs for travel recommendations, but I like to research through various sources to decide on what I’d like to see.
I have gone through the budget travels as a student, lived in hostels, et cetera. I think as long as you can take the first step out of your door, regardless of the budget, it will always be rewarding. I have heard many interesting stories from working holidays; that would be a good option as well.
I just want to go everywhere, so it’s usually determined by my travel companion(s).
For short trips, maybe one large and one small. For longer trips of two weeks or more, usually two large and one small.
I was never an expert in packing light! But I do kind of mentally plan out my outfits so I don’t get way out of line. In fact, I have been fined four times and had to pay for excess luggage weight.
Photo shoots and cocktail time!
Coming back to my car in Pisa after lunch, only to discover that my car had been broken into and all my suitcases were stolen.
I’d like to say dolphin, but no... maybe a horse – an Icelandic one, perhaps?
T-shirt, sweatpants and a nice bag.
Amsterdam, Corsica and Sardinia.
Going through security and immigration.
Five days, when I was on an island in the Philippines for my scuba diving license.

I can’t choose – because I’m not ready to settle down yet!
The world always has so much more to offer than you can imagine.
