    环游世界 -与五月天追梦 有些事现在不做 一辈子都不会做了! いまやらないとできない!

Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organisation that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development, and respect for […]

      Romancing Venice Venice is truly romantic. The glittering canals, meandering streets and just the atmosphere.. who can resist falling in love… with Venice?

Located in the Aydin Province of Central Aegean Turkey, Kuşadası is a busy port town along the Aegean coast. The name Kuşadası comes from “kuş” (bird) […]

      Lost in Paradise – Santorini Ah… the jewel of the Cyclades islands, Santorini (officially called Thira, classically called Thera) is one of the “postcard perfect” places at the top of my “Dream Destination List”. It really looks as perfect as how it is usually depicted in postcards! Masa (the bassist of Mayday) had his wedding ceremony on this romantic […]
