Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week and got out to do something new and audacious. To all in Taiwan and China, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! It’s the year of the sheep so everyone better watch out for EGE because the lucky numbers are 3,4,and 9 and my lucky number has ALWAYS been 9! Yippieeeee! Anyway, I hope everyone had a good weekend. During the weekends I like to take time to try something new, whether it be exploring a new place, reading a new book, transforming my tastebuds or challenging myself to a new workout. Diversity keeps the mind keen and there are millions of opportunities in this big world ready for you to embrace.

I’m excited about 2015 and want to begin the year off right by sharing some of this week’s top posts. The articles chosen were this week’s most interesting and chosen by EGErs. They range from the truths about being a full time blogger to the world’s strangest attractions – and man are they funny!

You can be on the outside looking in as a tourist, or engross yourself fully into a culture and truly experience a different way of life. Many people will choose the easier, comfortable route and remain ignorant to much of the place they are visiting.
  • Top 10 World’s Strangest Attractions – The other day I found a blog post discussing the most unusual museums in Europe and it had me thinking – what were the most unusual attractions that I had visited? I straight away started thinking about my US road trip – watching the “birth” of a cabbage patch kid and the unclaimed baggage center.
  • Icehotel Jukkasjärvi: A night in snow and ice! – 200 kilometers above the Arctic Circle in the most Northern part of Sweden, about 17 kilometres from Kiruna, lies the little village of Jukkasjärvi where dogs nearly out number humans, but from December to March each year it becomes host to the world’s original…
  • Gare do Oriente, Lisbon – Today’s Sunday SnapShot is replaced by a small serie of photos from beautiful Lisbon. The Gare do Oriente is a major train, bus and metro station located in eastern Lisbon. It is designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and was finished in 1998…
