It was born when a few expats brought a dozen bands together on a southern beach back in 1995. Now, it’s a three-day music festival in Kenting National Park on the southern tip of the island, featuring 200 bands spread across eight stages — nearly all of them local, including Taiwanese and expats.

When in Rome… http://www.shenzhenphotos.com/photos-of-roma-italy/ http://www.shenzhenphotos.com/photos-of-roma-italy/#respond Sat, 17 Oct 2015 13:44:23 +0000 http://www.shenzhenphotos.com/?p=1164 Back in 2013 I started out on a European roadtrip with my parents in Rome. Later in France, one of our friends described it as a "village" in comparison to Paris. I think that's part of it's appeal. I can't wait to come back some day and wander the narrow alleys while taking espresso shots and admiring all of the ancient architecture. Here are some snaps from my weekend in Rome, all taken with a Canon 6D and 24-105L.

Towards the end, we spent several days in Paris. It struck me as a very grand, hip, diverse, energetic, beautiful, and cultured city. Here are some visual impressions I took away from it.
