I travelled Asia for 4 months and learned so much about myself, music, and the world.
I’ve been burned a few times. I went to the emergency room in Hong Kong, for example.
You’ll discover travel hacks (e.g. how to not be taken advantage of – super useful for females), musician tricks (I’m a pianist), and more.
So, I’ve created a little travel guide for my fellow travellers and musicians. Feel free to share this guide with a friend who might find this useful.
Here are my favourite travel hacks, stories, and tips.
