Elegance of language may not be in the power of all of us; but simplicity and straight forwardness are. Write much as you would speak; speak as you think. If with your inferior, speak no coarser than usual; if with your superiors, no finer. ~ Henry Alford

出行 Journey has evolved from several experimental digital forms throughout the years (since 2006) but the premise and spirit of this blog has remained the same. Through this medium, I would like to share my experiences as a traveler and creator.


Knowing others is intelligence. Knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich. If you stay in the center and embrace death with your whole heart, you will endure forever.
~ Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

My name is orchidus or also known as — the resident windrunner. I am best described as an INFJ, a causal gamer, an eclectic Japanese Anime enthusiast;  an art and history appreciator (especially the European Renaissance and ancient China); an avid reader,  an amateur photographer, and a life-long learner. I also enjoy learning about other cultures and philosophies.

This is a place, where I share my travel and cultural experiences.
