-the city that had me falling in love
this is the first time ever in my life that i travelled by myself, no family members coming along.
i left for a week. went with only one other friend. this trip taught me more about my own pursue of happiness than anything. where as my other trips taught me more about attitude and actions and many other things.
its a beautiful city.
it's by the sea,
and theres a little famous island near by.
on the island, there are only pedestrian sidewalks.,you dont really see cars.
you can walk all day around the island.
something special about the island is that when you get on the island you can get a stamp book.
each store on the island has their each individual stamp, and you can collect your stamps from the store to store.
another special thing about this island is that , its known as the island of cats, there are appearntly thousands of cats here.....although i saw more dogs than cats...
people who come to this place likes to mail postcards to other people.
to me, it feels like this is the island where people are true to their feelings and this island is full of people's stories.
its a tourist island, but inside every single cafe (sometimes stores too), on their walls and sometimes furnitures there are messages(usually post-its or sometimes just written by sharpies) left by people who were once there, they write of their stories or their emotions and feelings at the time and often also their deepest secrets.
its really cool being in places like these where you can see what others have been through (majority of the messages are about love) and it can really inspire you,
it definitely inspired me.
what it inspired is a secret teehee.
but i was honestly very happy during this trip.
i feel like it helped me understand and better communicate with myself better yet again. (other trips did alot of that too) and to me it was meaningful
i felt so free, and i had no burdens and no worries.
.... i think im addicted to traveling as a twosome in china...... (already planning one for next year )
