During the summer of 2016, I traveled overseas completely on my own for the first time. Over the course of seven weeks, I wandered through Scandinavia exploring the Swedish heritage of my grandmother, made my way to Berlin by train, and confronted the stark beauty of Iceland—stretching myself along the way.

Danny Woo Community Garden

Right smack in the middle of Seattle’s bustling Chinatown/International District, perched on the side of a slope, sits a quiet, sanctuary of a community garden hidden in plain sight—Danny Woo Community Garden. Up until a few days ago, I had no idea this gem even existed. It’s easy to pass right by without a clue of what you’re missing. Just take a look at the cherry trees in bloom and you’ll have a sense of the tranquility that awaits the curious explorer eager for a respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.
