Welcome to my travel blog!

Hey there, it's nice to e-meet ya! My name is Jasmine (Jas for short) and I’m a Taiwanese Canadian gal from Vancouver, Canada – or as I’d like to call it, Raincouver. It gets depressing here ten out of the twelves months of the year, which is why you can expect to find me elsewhere staying dry and avoiding the rain.

My Suitcase Journeys is a luxury travel blog that specializes in weekend getaways for the 9-to-5 traveler. The name “My” originates from my Chinese name – Ming Yu – meaning bright and joyful.

From hotel reviews and restaurant recommendations to detailed travel itineraries, this blog covers a wide range of topics to help you find comfort and inspiration in your designated city of voyage.
