Easily find Peace in Asian Parks

With the West Lake in Hangzhou recently joining the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites, it seems like the right time to highlight the value I’ve received by embracing some peaceful hours of relaxation in the most beautiful parks of China, Korea, and Japan.

Let’s start with the West Lake (杭州, 西湖):

Luckily, I’ve had the chance to see all of these places. The memories of these visits have not only been engraved  in my mind, but also they have been imprinted on my soul. They are the kinds of places we need to respect and enjoy while we are in this world. I just hope I’ll be able to see and experience more before this ship sets sail…
