THE GETTY MUSEUM
I just wanted to share these photos that I took at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. I've never been to this museum before and I have always wanted to visit it. Perfectly situated in central L.A. and high above the clouds that you can overlook all of the city. I felt like an angel in Los Angeles, just kidding. The museum is huge and has perfectly, curated collections from medieval times too! I love Renaissance paintings and I'm shocked these paintings withstood the test of time and are perfectly preserved.

ICH LIEBE ZÜRICH
Surprise! a month ago (for the first time ever) I flew to Zürich, Switzerland! The first thing I noticed was that the Swiss air was second to none. It felt clean and liberating (two words that come to mind). I enjoyed my morning meditations inhaling this wonderful city's air circulating through my lungs. It's an experience , I can tell you that. Anyway, the lake, the surroundings, the people, the food, the shopping it was all so surreal. My cousin and I stayed in the old part of town and the cobblestone streets gave such medieval energy, so different from the States. Additionally, having friends in Zürich now made me realize that networking is imperative wherever you are in the world. If you want to see more photos, click the link "READ MORE" below.

LEO's shopping guide f/w 2022
It's been awhile since I blogged and uploaded a new post! I know, I know it's been a crazy three years.

As I mentioned before, this blog is not just a travel blog, at its core it is actually a lifestyle blog. Today, I am blogging about Fall Winter Shopping Guide. I will be sharing few pieces that are on my shopping list for this season and click the link for more.

TWO DAYS IN SINGAPORE
Singapore was a surreal experience. Flying there from the US mainland was one of the longest flights I have ever taken. More than 18 hours of flying (and not including layovers) and I was only in Singapore for two days and three nights. I’m laughing at myself for doing it. Talk about spontaneous/adventurous and all other synonyms. I know, I know I’m slow in uploading posts...8 months later. Click "Read More" link to see more photos.

When I think about Paris, I visualize scooters, lights and harmonious sounds. Additionally, tree lined boulevards and musical street performers. My Parisian sentiments I'm sure coincides with someone else's out there. I've been to Paris before and every time I'm in Paris, I can't help but fall in love with it more. There's no other place like it. Some people may say it's over-rated, I say it's highly-rated. I'll be sharing some photos that my friend and I took all around town. This trip was back in April and I'm still daydreaming about the city of lights. Click Read More below for more.
ABU DHABI MOSQUE
Hello, I have a little surprise. When I went to Dubai last year (back in November), I quietly journeyed to hot and humid, Abu Dhabi as well. I've been excited to show you these photos (but I had to be quiet for a surprise blog content). I finally paid a visit to the bucket list worthy, world-renowned Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and it was absolutely stunning! Click Read More to see morrrrrre
SEE YA, SEATTLE
Oh hello, Happy New Year. For my first post of 2019, I'm serving you photos from my recent trip to Seattle. Recent, meaning last month lol. Seattle remains one of the prettiest cities I've seen in the U.S. Of course, I took advantage of the good (but frigid) weather. One of my favorite jackets, is this teddy jacket but it wasn't completely helpful at all. I was freezing the whole time. Here are the few photos that I decided to share-- It's not much.

DUBAI THE MARVELOUS
For thanksgiving last month, I quietly flew to Dubai and visited for the first time. It was such a surreal experience. I missed the Middle East since if you didn't already know, I spent my childhood years in that region after my parents found a job and we all moved there when I was a toddler. Anyway, being in Dubai brought back so many memories. Arabian food is one of my favorite foods and I think the people in Dubai are friendly, warm and respectful. It was a quick trip and I'm already thinking about my next Middle Eastern destination as I'm sat here in my office room. Click Read More link below for the photo show :)
MEXICO CITY RACONTEUR
The past two weeks was difficult because I kept daydreaming about Mexico City. Time flies indeed. This city is so humongous, you're going to need over a week (or two) to explore all of it. I'm going to do something different for this post. I'll be storytelling. Let me know if you like this post, i'll be doing it for my future posts if you guys like it. Now, when I was in high school my art teacher was obsessed with Frida Kahlo and she mentioned to all her students that we must make sure to go visit her museum at least once in this lifetime--and I did. Now, I have to find her contact information and tell her! I don't know why it took so long for me to visit CDMX but nonetheless, I experienced it now. A lot of high-pitched laughters and food is a dangerous combination haha.

WINDY CHICAGO VIBES
I was in Chicago, the magnificent city up north two weeks ago. They say it's more fun the second time around and yes, I found that to be true and believable. On top of that, I was with friends that made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable. What was the weather you ask? Like NYC. It was breezy though warm and sunny-my post-lasik eyes couldn't handle it either. I didn't take many photos so I hope you like these photos I had to serve (satisfactorily).

NEW YORK CITY ANGEL
New York City will always be number one in my heart. Two weeks ago, I went there and I think that was my tenth time visiting THE concrete jungle. I’m telling you every time I visit there’s always something new but the feeling of being in the center of the universe never changes. It’s arguably the best city in the world. I wanted to live there after university but sometimes things don’t go as planned. However, I’m a few hours away (by plane) and I can always hop on a flight and savor the pollution. With all that being said, click the Read More link below for more New Yawwwk photos.
BOSTON CLAM CHOWDER
Last weekend I visited Boston, Massachusetts! I've never been to Boston before and this was my chance to go visit. I didn't know it was chilly up there during this time of the year! What do I know about Boston? Gisele-Tom and Ryan-Blake hah! But with all kidding aside, I think Boston is full of culture and thus, a different environment to explore. I wish I had more time to traverse Beantown though. Click Read More link below to see more photos.
ROME SWEET ROME
When I think about Rome, I think about the culture and the heaps amount of activities and sights to see. Two weeks ago, I explored Rome with friends and apart from the ample amount of walking, we laughed and shared stories and there's no better way to do it than in the eternal city itself. I hope these pictures turned out well. We tried to take many photos as much as possible while at the same time absorbing the roman environment. I am excited to share with you finally! (I got several DMs on snapchat about when I will be uploading) Click Read More below for more photos.
Last weekend, I visited Orlando with my family. You know what that means? Disney World! We only got to visit two theme parks: Epcot and Magic Kingdom. Apart from the miles and miles of walking, the weather took a toll on me. It was hot! it's lethal! Regardless, I was able to take photos for blog content. Yay! (I tried my best haha).

Toronto is beautiful and such a global city. I run out of words to describe it, I want to say multi-ethnic, dynamic, diverse and has its own idiosyncrasies. I have been in and out of Canada since last year and I just think that this country has so many things to offer. A parka doesn’t cut it this time of the year, one should take the word “layering” important when visiting Toronto. Apart from the runny nose and hoarse voice effects, it was all worth it.

I flew to Amsterdam to experience winter wonderland because where I live, it is a rarity to experience the cold and get immersed in wintry vibes. Although, I love jackets and I continue to buy them otherwise. The purpose of this escapade is to take photos for the blog and it didn’t snow in Amsterdam when I was there but I think it was a blessing since it was extremely cold and raining. I've been back home and as my last post for 2017 and as a surprise I have posted more than the usual number of photos. Until next year earthlings!!

HI VANCOUVER BYE
They say time flies when you are having fun. Yes indeed as I'm back home now. Vancouver is one of those cities that you just want to keep visiting. This was my second time and I enjoyed it regardless of the rain. It was a quick trip since as many of you know, I always take short trips. From traversing the wet and slippery streets and relentlessly eating delicious meals, sometimes a weekend trip is all you need to recharge, to get inspired and fall in love with the world even more.

MONTREAL, IT'S BEEN REAL
This past weekend, I flew to Montréal to attend my cousin's wedding. Although, I won't be posting any wedding photos here, I promised to post travel photos. This is my first time visiting this city and it has always been on top of my bucket list. Yes, I managed to take a plethora of photos despite of being a quick trip (only two days for me). Traveling exudes such a positive emotion for me, it always uplift my spirits and always ends up a transformative experience. Click the link for more photos!
When I travel, I like to share the world through my eyes while capturing photos that will forever remain with me. I'm Leo by the way, U.S based wanderlust.
