About My Trips to Asia

Asia has become my personal wonderland. From the holy sites of Israel to the towering skyscrapers of Japan, each trip has unveiled a new facet of this vast continent.

In Israel, I felt the weight of history in Jerusalem and floated in the Dead Sea. Japan was a whirlwind of bullet trains, delicious food, and the serene beauty of Kyoto’s temples. The ancient city of Petra in Jordan left me speechless, a testament to a civilization long gone.

Taiwan surprised me with its bustling capital, Taipei, and the breathtaking hikes in Taroko National Park. Even a layover in Istanbul became an adventure, thanks to the awe-inspiring Hagia Sophia.

Every corner of Asia has offered something new and unforgettable – the feeling of safety with a local guide in Israel, the mind-blowing flavors of Japanese cuisine, and the humbling experience of standing before the Hiroshima A-Bomb Dome. Get ready to join me on a journey through these incredible memories!

I had an amazing nine-day adventure in Israel! I wanted to see all the holy sites and major cities I talk about in my Global Studies class. Since Israel is pretty small, I based myself in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to explore from there. That way, I could easily reach all the places I wanted to see, like Masada, the Dead Sea, Nazareth, Bethlehem, and Jericho.

Safety was a big concern for me, so I mostly took guided tours. Having a local expert with me made sure I was safe and got the most out of each place. I felt totally safe the whole time, even in the Palestinian-controlled areas of the West Bank.

Nine days in Japan felt like a blur of amazing sights, delicious food, and fascinating history! My trip started in the towering skyscrapers of Tokyo and ended in the serene temples of Kyoto. The Japan Rail Pass was my best friend, letting me zip around to Hiroshima, Yokohama, and the beautiful Miyajima Island.

Japan is a foodie paradise, and I don’t think I stopped eating the entire trip! Every corner offered something new and delicious.

Some of my most vivid memories are gazing out from the Tokyo Skytree, exploring the ancient Sensoji Temple, getting lost (but somehow finding my way) in the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and wandering through the thousands of red torii gates at Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. A truly unforgettable experience was paying my respects at the Hiroshima A-Bomb Dome. This trip was a perfect blend of cultural experiences, historical insights, and incredible flavors!

Wow! I just did a whirlwind trip to Petra, Jordan, and crammed it all into six hours! Even though the bus ride from Jerusalem took forever, seeing Petra in person made the whole journey totally worth it.

It was a long ride, but the second I stepped foot in Petra, it was all worth it. We spent five hours exploring the ancient city, and even hiked all the way to the Treasury – this giant building carved into the mountainside is unbelievable, especially knowing it was built thousands of years ago! It was a short visit, but Petra is incredible, and I’m so glad I wasn’t afraid to squeeze it into my trip!

My trip to Taiwan started with a long flight (thankfully with a comfy seat!) and ended with a smooth propeller plane ride. Taipei was incredible – from the historical sites like Chiang Kai-shek Park to the peaceful temples and the sky-high Taipei 101. 

I even escaped the city for the stunning hikes in Taroko National Park. Taiwan had it all, and it was unforgettable!

Istanbul in a blink! My layover on the way to Nairobi turned into a mini-adventure thanks to Turkish Airlines’ comfy flight (good food and WiFi, score!).

The highlight? Hagia Sophia, a UNESCO wonder that’s been a church, a mosque, and back again! This mix of Christian and Islamic art is mind-blowing, and our guide did an amazing job explaining everything – even pointing out hidden Christian mosaics. This was the perfect way to experience such a historic place on a tight schedule.
