"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."

Hi, I'm Amy. 

Do you resonate with the quote above? It's a quote I live by because I really believe in stepping out of comfort zone, aiming high and exploring what works for each of us. 

This is the place where I share my journey moving across the world from Vancouver to Tuebingen, Germany to attend grad school, seeking for new experiences, testing my limits and potentials.

So keep in touch, email me and/or add me on Instagram. I promise I'll be sharing my learnings along the way as well as some fun stories and hot tips for travelling and studying abroad!!!

— Quote from Mozart in letter to his father Leopauldo from vienna

"I assure you that this is a magnificent place here." 

What are you passionate about?

This blog is a place where I write about everything I love and here are a few things I absolutely love. Traveling, reading, writing, food, but above all, self development and living my best life. After graduating from uni and working for a year in Canada, I moved to Germany with the goal of living a passionate and intentional life. 

Fast forward 1.5 years, I'd say it's going pretty well. Traveling to old cities in Europe gives me so much inspiration and creativity and meeting new people and trying new jobs help me learn more about myself. If you are where I was 1.5  years ago, wondering if you should make some changes in your life, but not sure how to, this is the place for some inspirations!  I write about studying, traveling and working as a Korean- Canadian international student based in Germany. Follow along for an exciting life and insights living between Asia, North America, and Europe!
