I love the excitement of getting to a new unfamiliar place in a foreign country. The best solution to get out of a routine and create a lasting memory.

I remember well the first time I came to the US and specifically Manhattan. It was different from what I was used to and this experience lasted with me. The subway, the city skyline, the rivers around it, yellow cabs everywhere. Like I’ve only seen on tv before. After coming back a few years later and living here for a while, this feeling fades out. As you get used to the environment you begin to notice the disadvantages. The busy sidewalks you can barely pass through, dangerous cab drivers, piles of garbage everywhere, unreasonable rent.

Last year I had a chance to visit Japan twice. I got to travel all over the country and it was an amazing experience. The cultural difference, food, nature and many other things made it something I’ll definitely remember for a while.

It makes me realize how much I want to travel more.
