Xiamen: A Family Holiday

Xiamen China is a major coastal city in Fujian Province. It’s also the ancestral home of many overseas Chinese scattered around Southeast Asia. If you haven’t already guessed where I’m going with this, my parents’ are from here (Fujian). My dad actually went to school in Xiamen City, so this is sort of a homecoming for him.

But it turned out backpack flags isn’t as popular as fridge magnets, postcards or mugs as travel souvenirs. In fact, I forgot all about this plan of collecting flags. I don’t think I encountered them at all in Europe.

Hey, I'm Wanderlass! The lass who wanders.

I travel the world on a quest to live a life not ordinary.

In 2011, I went to live my greatest dream of traveling around the world. This epic trip took me to 25 countries across 5 continents for 425 days! Needless to say, the wanderlust did not wane one bit when I came back. I continue to go on trips, albeit shorter ones.

Today, I’ve been to 58 countries & territories on 6 continents. I target to visit countries I’ve never been to; dive new dream destinations; and try new adventures like sailing, skydiving, or stepping on a brand new island.

Come, wander with me!
