‘Not all those who wander are lost.’

I enjoy swimming and hiking. The sense of conquering nature during hiking is intriguing. I once finished the 50 km Hong Kong Trail around the Hong Kong Island in 10 hours. The scenery along the trail is breathtaking.
I learned the piano for over 10 years since I was a little girl. Fur Elise is my favorite piece.Web Analytics Made Easy - StatCounter
