i left in a boxcar to see the northern lights.


Zara pussybow blouse | F21 ripped denim shorts | H&M basketweaved clutch | F21 beaded bohemian bracelet | Zara denim wedges

For those of you who aspire to become detectives, you might have noticed the trail of rain drops in the photos as they splashed a watercolor painting around me. We managed to snap a few a shots during the intermission before the rain started to perform its dance again. It is supposed to rain for a good measure the next few days, so it is time to curl up with a hot cup of tea and a good parcel from my library.

Recently, the rain has made me nostalgia of my couple trips to Taiwan. For some reason the industrial scents, the slick downtown roads, and the overcast skies remind me of the times we weaved through the buzzing metropolis alive with mopeds, alluring bakeries on corner streets, night markets, and the incandescent light shows blinking in the windows of tall buildings. Although I was born and raised in the U.S., it's always nice to see that part of my heritage that is of a different world. A tidbit about me: I've been to 43 of the 50 states, and to 15 countries. Even if you don't care to travel, I encourage you make it on your bucket list to visit at least one other country. It is definitely an enchanting and eye-opening experience that will give you something to reminiscence.

Annika said...

Jamie, you are such a sweetheart! Thank you so much for your adorable comments on my blog!

Plus, you're obviously a gorgeous, intelligent young woman and I'm so glad I found your blog. You have a new follower for sure!

Travelling has been a huge part of my life, as I've lived in Berlin, Shanghai and London, and something I have no choice but to keep on doing since I have my mother and sister Amanda in southern Spain, my brother Axel in Florida, my dad and sister Wendi in Los Angeles and my sweet cousins in Seattle. But to be honest, I'm so happy in my little countryside house that I almost wish I could just stay here for a while. This year I've already travelled to Los Angeles, Seattle, Thailand and Berlin, and I have plans to go to Venice, Italy in June and to New York in September. I do look forward to it but I still have to say, there's no place like home! Before I moved to our beautiful house March 1st last year, I've never felt that way before, I always used to wish I were somewhere else. It's quite the satisfying feeling.
