We toured Istanbul for half day for Free!

As someone who loves to travel (but does not really have that much resources to spare, i.e. money), I always try to look for discounted/free stuff when traveling. Yes, I do love peso fares and all that so when we had a chance to travel to the US for work, we did some research on cheap travel routes and stopovers we can afford. My work friends found that Turkish Air offered the lowest fare that time and luck enough, we found out that they offer free tours in Istanbul!

I have been to My Favorite Korean Dramas’ Shooting Locations…and more!

One of my many dreams in life is to visit the shooting locations of my favorite Koreanovelas — I’m sure all korean drama addict can relate. Being able to go to Seoul Korea is already a big thing for K-drama fans like me but being able to actually visit those K-drama locations, is like the highest of achievements — the “tugatog ng tagumpay” kumbaga because it makes us feel closer to our idols.

I have been in Seoul twice now and I thought that I may have had a few list of those famous destinations i.e. “K drama shooting location” that I can share in this post.

Toronto and my first snow experience!

Canada is the place to be! That’s what i would always hear at least for most people I know who want to migrate. Honestly, it was not really one of my bucket lists for places I want to travel to (until I saw Quebec in the K-Drama Goblin). And then I had a chance to travel to Toronto for work and it changed everything. This country is not short of AMAZING – with all its (promise-not-boring-in-fact-amazing) brick structures, multi-cultural people, and very nice weather…though there were days I was really freezing as it was still winter.

I experienced Batanes…di ko sya ginoogle, pramis!

Sabi nga ni Coco Martin – ang Batanes, ini-experience, hindi gino-google. True enough, the google pictures cannot even justify the beauty this place has to offer. I am a proud Pinoy to having been able to experience Batanes, with all its uber-breathtaking-sucking-all-your-energy-sa-kagandahan na views of hills, mountaintops, cliffs and rocky shorelines.

Batanes Day 1: Northern Batan Island Tour

Day 1. Northern Basco Day Tour. Batan is the biggest of the three main habitable islands of Batanes. Basco, the capital is located in the north of Batan. Flights going to Basco are normally scheduled early morning so just enough time to settle down to your hotel or homestays before starting the tour. I think there are a number of tour packages offered by travel agencies but i think it is still DIY-able. We actually got a good deal with  manong tricycle driver who also acted as our tour guide for Php500/day.
