san francisco, travel

Hi again. It’s me, Hui (‘HOO-EE’).

In 2015, I quit my job as a sales assistant to backpack around the world. I ended up coming back home 2.5 months later because 1) I was exhausted 2) I realized I needed a better plan.

In 2016, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area all by myself to see how well I would do living alone. The plan was to live there for a year or two and then maybe move abroad. But due to some family circumstances, I ended moving back home a year later.

And just when I was ready to give up, I started this blog and stumbled onto the idea of freelance writing and that’s when I realized, I can turn it into a career.

Today, I live in Spain where I teach part time, write part time, and travel part time. It’s not the most conventional way of living but it works for me.

If you’re someone who enjoys reading about traveling, self-discovery, and living authentically, then this is the right place for you. I hope you’ll find something useful. Happy exploring!



“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.”
