National Parks in Utah offer some of the darkest skies in the United States. On a clear, moonless night, it’s easy to see the Milky Way with naked eyes. Thousands of natural sandstone arches provide the perfect foreground for night photography, making the Arches National Park one of the best night photography spots.
Cayonlands National Park in Utah has been high on my bucket list. The park has an iconic stone arch that you probably have seen after a famous photographer Peter Lik took the renowned sunrise photo which became your computer background image.
猶他州的峽谷地國家公園一直以來都在我的攝影夢想清單上，自從攝影師Peter Lik在Mesa Arch拍了日出之後，大概大家都在電腦桌布看過峽谷地的這個著名地標。
Being featured on Utah license plates, Delicate Arch is probably the most recognized landmark and most photographed natural wonder in the Arches National Park.
On the second day of our road trip to National Parks in the American Southwest, we drove 2.5 hours from Rifle, Colorado to Moab, Utah. Moab was our base for two of the Mighty Five in Utah — the Arches National Park and the Canyonlands National Park.
第二天吃完飯店早餐，開兩個半小時的車到猶他Mighty Five五大國家公園的其中一個據點 – 摩押市(Moab, Utah)，拱門國家公園(Arches)和峽谷地國家公園(Cayonlands)都離Moab不遠。
I fell in love with our Airbnb in Moab. The decor was stylish. The townhouse was very well equipped. The host was friendly and very helpful. When we left Moab, we were immediately dreaming about coming back for a longer stay.
The drive from Denver to Utah was beautiful. Landscapes varied from mines to ski resorts to a lush valley in a majestic canyon. We were so lucky to see a group of big horn sheep on day 1 of our National Parks road trip!
Osaka is foodie’s paradise. There is a saying in Japan that goes 京の着倒れ、大阪の食い倒れ (Kyō no kidaore, Ōsaka no kuidaore) which basically means people in Kyoto spend all their money on fine clothing and shoes and people in Osaka spend all their money on food. From the proverb came the word Kuidaore (食い倒れ), which means to ruin oneself by indulging in food.
Kuromon Ichiba Market is dubbed Osaka’s kitchen. It’s a ready-made food and grocery market with roughly 180 shops. I had breakfast here twice in three days, and there was so much more I wanted to try.
When I travel to a new place, I always look for good food, cool architecture, and places to shoot. One of the evenings during our trip in Osaka had all the boxes checked. We visited a very Instagrammable bookstore during the blue hour right after sunset. Then we wrapped up the day with a bowl of foamy citrus-infused ramen that was incredible.
Kitahama seems to be an under-rated travel spot in Osaka. Riverside coffee shops with outdoor seating offer a fantastic view. This is a great place to get your coffee fix, enjoy brunch, or spend a lazy afternoon.
