MY WANDERLUST


Photo By: Elin Chow

I love travelling and my ultimate goal is to visit most of the countries in Asia. Well, that does not mean that I am not interested to travel around Europe or the United States. To be frank, it is always my real dream is to be able to travel around the world some day. However, this seems like an almost unattainable travel dream as I do not have the budget to realize it. Unless, I am lucky to meet people who are happy to sponsor some of my local or overseas trips.

My Wishlists

The following are some of my dream destinations that I hope to visit at the moment.

Overseas 
Maldives | Japan | Australia | New Zealand | Hawaii | Taiwan | Europe

I am always open to collaborate to opportunity to collaborate on travel-related sponsorship (both local and overseas). Please note that I will not recommend anything to my readers that I have not personally experienced. I am tired of receiving emails that expected to write in exchange for exposure without even offering anything in return. If you are interested, please feel free to drop me an email at elinchow17@gmail.com to discuss further in details.

  1. Hello Elin,I think I partly understand your style of travel -- mostly natural and beautiful places. Even though Bangkok may be a bit dirty and hot but sometimes during December and February may be less hot and some area is OK for walking and eating.So if you and your husband have a free time , try visiting BKK,Thailand always welcome you.Bye

    1. Hi Thaiman,
      I have visited Bangkok several times since young. But it is a bit boring since it is more about food and shopping. I am visiting it again in a week time with a friend on a very short trip. I will probably plan another trip next year.
