My name is Tuyen (pronounced "twin") and I'm the creator behind this website. I'm Chinese born in Vietnam, raised in Seattle -- resulting in a culturally diverse upbringing and hard-to-pronounce name.
Professionally, I'm a UX Designer II at Expedia where no two days are the same. You can find me in whiteboard sessions with product & engineering, gathering insights with UX research and analytics, moving stronger ideas into prototypes, or giving/receiving feedback at daily design reviews. Sometimes you'll even find me cleaning my fish tank. Yes, I have a fish tank on my desk.
Personally, I refuel by traveling, practicing vinyasa yoga and HIIT, and drinking bubble tea. I'm a very sentimental person, so what started as me organizing my travel memories evolved into sharing them publicly on a blog format. My hope is that they are helpful in providing trip ideas and inspiring others to travel.
