Around this time last year, I went to a trip to Taiwan with my siblings and cousin. I got reminded of all the fun that was as I’m cleaning up my files kasi nagmamabagal na phone ko. So before my phone totally crash because of the thousand of photos that just kept on piling up without me posting them, I thought of just blogging about them instead.Continue reading
We did an interstate road trip amidst the lockdown and it was a combination of awesome amazing and overwhelmingly lonely. Awesome because we mostly had the tourist spots to ourselves, therefore, more chances to take photos without any asungot in the background and without the pressure to just click and go. Medyo trigger happy ako sa pagkuha ng pictures kasi. On the other hand, the thing that I love when traveling is also having to see people. The crowd, however overwhelming they are, just gives you good vibes. Diba?
We also expected not to see much people but not that level, even the usual touristy areas were like ghost town, it was almost surreal. I’ve been to New York twice before and I’ve never seen it so quiet and with almost no cars on the road. Of course there are much more people in the other downtown area but Times Square being empty and barricaded by the police is probably no one would have imagined happening before COVID.Continue reading
I have no words.
New York is home to some of the grandest skyscrapers, the most famous parks and the busiest streets in the world. I have been traveling to the US for workshops and meetings and all but I never had a chance to do any side trip until this year. It was a quick weekend getaway so I did the “checklist-bilis-kind-of-trip” versus the “chill-ka-lang-besh” na I’m trying to do in my trips these days. Anyways, more reason to go back but for now, let me share some photos I took in my solo travel in the city that never sleeps.
I’ve recently watched Hello Love Goodbye in cinemas and I was reminded to post my last trip in Hongkong…masyadong delayed!
Our Hongkong trip last November was my first trip abroad with my mother and sister. My nanay is the type who wouldn’t want to stay at home but since she can’t afford to travel, she’s always jealous of me traveling even if it is for work.Continue reading
Everyone loves good food and good coffee. Yes! And yes, we do love to scout for yummy food and cozy nice places whenever we travel to places. It just kind of makes the entire experience complete on top of just sight-seeing. 🙂
If you only have half a day in Montreal, I think a walking tour to the city’s old downtown is more than good enough use of time. Old Montreal is a historic neighbourhood but more importantly for me, a long street of restaurants (fooooood) and shops!
To other people, Quebec might just be another city to tick off their travel bucket list. For K-drama fans like me, it is one of those dream-come-true destinations.
Our Day 7 was the most tiring, heart pumping day for me — mostly because of all the walking and because we were high up most of the time – overlooking the city from either a tall building or from a ferris wheel — x2!!!
We bought the Osaka Amazing Day Pass. for the city tour . It was totally worth it! If we compute all the train rides we had for the day and the entrance fees altogether we did save a lot. ❤ ❤ ❤
I have been a huge fan of Japanese anime ever since I was a kid but I come to really love Japan from our high school history class. And though just thinking of going to this country seemed too farfetched for me that time, I did tell myself that if I’m lucky enough, I should not miss to visit the Horyugi (Horyu-ji) – the oldest wooden temple in the world, coz it was the only temple I memorized from all the historic sites we’ve studied, hehehe!
Thanks to seat sale, we found a cheap 2-way ticket to Kansai for a late November trip and was able to include Nara (where Horyu-ji is located) in our itinerary – I was happy!
