Innsbruck brings back bittersweet memories. Back in the 80's, I went to a boarding school run by nuns. The school was excellent, my classmates were very nice, the nuns were kind but I was an extremely homesick 15 year old, struggling to learn German and just wanted to go back to the Philippines. I did not finish the school year and went back home. Fast forward many years (I cannot believe how fast time flies), I have been back twice and now appreciate the charming alpine city.
Craft beer and tacos in Barrio Logan which reminds me of New York's East Village in the 90's. Gritty, artsy and in the midst of a major revitalization.
Ever since I watched the movie Empire of the Sun in the 80's featuring a young Christian Bale (who looks as intense as then as he does today) residing in 1930's Shanghai, I have wanted to visit the city. I love the cinematography and envisioned a bustling metropolis filled with inspiring European and Chinese architecture.
I was not disappointed.....
