When I was a single, I used to go to the USA twice a year by myself I loved playing basketball so when I went there I watched NBA! I remembered to be excited. I also went shopping. There were many cute, interesting things there. So I bought them for friends, co-workers and of course my family.

I've never travel by plane, but there are many places I'd like to visit. I really love travelling to Japan and explore their unique nature and culture. I also want to visit Bhutan and find out why Bhutanese people are so happy. Visiting Egypt also one of my dream. I want to see the mysterious pyramids. Also, I love visiting Austria where I can enjoy wonderful music. However, Antarctica will be my most extreme travelling experience.
