Asianmapleleaf

I’m a Canadian currently living in New York. I fell in love with traveling the first time I flew to Hong Kong when I was a kid, and since then I have been exploring new destinations each year. I love experiencing different cultures and also trying the local food! I have also always taken a lot of pictures while traveling or even at home, turning every moment into unforgettable memories. My Instagram and blog share these moments – my adventures in New York, my journey in self-discovery, my experiences traveling the world, and my favorite brands, which I take with me while traveling.

Asianmapleleaf showcases vacation destinations, unique experiences and culinary adventures. I’m also a contributing editor and writer for Swagger Magazine, global correspondent for ManAboutWorld, contributing writer for followsummer and Outings & Adventures, and ambassador for ilovegay. My goal is to inspire you all to travel more, experience more, and love more.
