Our journey in San Francisco - my most favourite city in the US so far. Beautiful views, unique terrain and interesting small winding roads. From the historical Chinatown to the famous gay district of Castro, to the Italian district of North Beach, the heart of San Francisco lies in it's culturally diverse neighbourhoods. Nothing quite beats the feeling of biking the Golden Gate Bridge with the wind in your face and magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean at sunset next to you. - Nasha Lee
"Had the most amazing 3 weeks of my life travelling with awesome friends. So grateful and blessed to be able to have this chance. Will remember all the people I met on this trip, all the moments the 4 of us had together, and all the laughter shared. Time to go back to Florida ! :)
In the past year I learnt that the that the journey is much more important than the destination, and that life is a one way street, no turning back. New year's resolution for this year: to stop being afraid , to live life as it comes and to trust God for all the plans He has for me. Life is wonderful :)"

"Determination and perseverance of human being amazed me the most in this trip:
From the ultra challenging sculpture engineering at Mt. Rushmore, successful Starbucks story that first started in Seattle, manufacturing of Boeing Dreamliner 787 that revolutionize flying experience, amazing architecture work of brilliant red Golden Gate Bridge completed in the 30s, Silicon Valley that changed our way of life, glamorous Hollywood which makes our imagination goes wild through motion pictures to the booming city of Las Vegas in the middle of dessert; the will power of man made the impossible possible.
If we ever doubt of our own ability, look back on what we've done. Not just in the US but all other great civilizations in the world. Internet alone makes so many things possible. So let our imaginations go wild, even the sky is not the limit. Dream. Achieve. Share. Live. Love."
