Litta, Taipei

"Everyone smiles in the same language" - Author unknown.

No matter where we travel, whether we can speak the language or not, there will always be signs and expressions that we recognize and pick up on, that form our first impressions of the people we meet. And sometimes it's even before a single word is exchanged. We arrived in Taipei at the weekend and it really is nice to be back in this vibrant and colorful city where the people are all smiles and so friendly. It makes me happy to meet people on the street who not only look great, but who are just really cool and interested in what I'm doing, and have the time of day just to stop and chat for a bit. It's nice to walk away with a smile after experiencing that.

Also, big thanks to Liyana and the team at ActuallyMAG for featuring StyleSophomore as part of their "Behind The Lens" street-photographer series. You can check out the feature and interview here.
