Pennsylvania: 1 day in Philly

Basically my plan for Philadelphia: no plan.
I only have 2 Musts on my list: 1. Must try a philly cheese steak. 2. Liberty Bell. We had a lot of "blank spaces", getting ready to be filled up by any worthwhile stops we'd come across.  

From the union station, we took a city bus to the very end of Chestnut Street and start walking around on foot. There are a few free museum to visit around the bus stop, so we checked out a few. These are the highlights:

Spruce Street Harbor Park

San Diego: 1 day in San Diego

I made San Diego a one day trip. Boy I was wrong! I should have stayed longer. There are a lot more places I wanted to set foot on: Joshua Tree National Park, potatochip rock and more. If you have time, check them out for me.

Georgia: 2 days in Atlanta

Atlanta holds a special place in my heart as the "City of Angels". When I was travelling solo in US, I've lost count of how many time I've got myself lost. Unfortunately, this is the reality of travelling, but it keeps everyday real. My biggest fears are: 1. Don't have a place to spend a night. 2. Missing transit to my next destination. And I nearly got in all these situations in Atlanta. However angels are everywhere in this city. A girl provided me so much comfort in the bus, a host in Atlanta offered me a place to stay last minute and picked me up at the station half past midnight, another girl led me to the greyhound station even thought she had to miss her home game and her friend scolded her for it! Like they said, everything happened for a reason, I thank God for helping me to restore my faith in unconditional kindness, and I promise to keep the chain going...

Day 1: Downtown

Orlando: 3 days in Orlando

I moved around the city mainly using the public transportation which is the LYNX bus service and the free Lymmo bus service downtown. The fare for a single journey, plus transfer, was $2.

Day 1: Relaxation

Miami: 2 days in Miami

I am a fan of CSI: Miami. However the series ended when I was still in secondary school. It was fun to watch the Investigation, which it would send Horatio, Eric, Ryan and Calleigh out to different parts of Miami. Whether it is Lincoln Street, the Miami beach, or MPD building, I was fascinated.

Georgia: 1 day in Athens

Simple and laid back. This is Athens in my humble opinion.
Athens is a charming college town housing the university of Georgia. Frankly speaking, I did not know where was I going, but it certainly did not stop me from falling in love with the simplicity of this town. Plus, people are super duper friendly.

As the name suggested, the Royal Mile is a pleasant 1 mile (and 107 yards) walk cutting directly through the heart of Edinburgh. 
The Stretch starts from the Castle on a long-extinct volcano, down the slope formed by the retreat of an ice age million years ago and finally, ends at the Palace of Holyrood.  Located within a World Heritage site, the Royal Mile is a combination of 4 streets: Castlehill, then Lawnmarket, High Street and Canongate,  jam packed with things to see and do.

Most attractions in Las Vegas are "hidden" inside the many hotels on the Strip, while some like the Fermont street are few miles away from the "Strip". This is a rough guide to "Las Vegas" I created before my trip:

There are a lot of flavors to choose from: Strawberry, chocolate, vanilla… but hey, don’t you think this green tortoise is probably the most epic version? … Plus,  Its Matcha, you’ve got the best of both worlds!

Korea: Bastille The Cereal Bar

Their ice cream seems Smokin' Hot! This instagram-worthy Ice cream is the liquid nitrogen ice cream everyone is talking about in Social Media. Come and grab one yourself!

Korea: the Snorkel Cone (Corn) ice cream at Jipangyi

I bet the Jipangyi ice cream is already making big waves in your country. J-play is the same concept.  This J-Shape ice cream had taken the world by Storm and there’s no sign of ceasing. It cleverly replaced the traditional Waffle cone with corn snacks and the concept of a J shape cone is a brilliant way to prevent dripping! Finally, clean hands after eating my Ice cream
