Hi, welcome to MelStory! My name is Melinda Tse, and I’m a Toronto-based filmmaker, travel blogger, and digital content creator with a passion for storytelling and personal growth.

I started the blog, “MelStory” in April 2019 as a way to share my travel itineraries because my friends would always ask me for travel advice after I returned home from a trip. I really love documenting my memories and helping others, so I thought launching this blog would be a great resource for my friends, first-time travelers, and also solo travelers!

Here are some things you can expect from MelStory:

  • Travel itineraries
  • Destination experiences
  • Solo travel guides
  • Product reviews
  • Travel packing tips
  • Instagram-worthy photoshoot locations
  • Fashion and outfit inspiration
  • Photography tips
  • Cinematic travel films
  • Bubble tea reviews (I love milk tea hehe)

This blog is still under construction as I work on creating more travel content, but feel free to join my newsletter to stay updated or shoot me a message if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing day!

Your travel friend,
Mel

Everytime I travel, I feel like I’m being teleported into a different dimension, and there’s a sense of adrenaline rush and excitement that runs through my soul. That feeling of immersing myself into an unfamiliar place and exploring the world is exhilarating, and I can’t help but admit that it’s wanderlust. As a filmmaker, it’s inspiring for me to uncover new perspectives and witness the different facets of life. I also love making international friends and appreciating the simple beauty of life.

I first developed wanderlust after studying abroad in Hong Kong in 2017. Since then, I’ve solo-traveled to multiple countries and constantly crave to explore and wander in the unknown. Traveling has opened my eyes to so many incredible experiences, and I truly believe everyone should go out there and discover the world for themselves!
