Osaka-Kyoto Day 1: Higashiyama & Gion @ Night

I’ve recently started blogging and in a way got addicted to it. I’ve been wanting to share my previous Japan trips but I’ve also been putting it off because I just have a lot of pictures to choose from, mahirap magtapon ng hindi basura #hugot. Japan is my favorite country to date because…mmm, there is really nothing about it you will not love.

A quick stop in Nuremberg

Our trip to Germany was just a weekend stopover after our business trip in Switzerland and yet it was more than what I have expected. We have a friend who offered her home in Erlangen for us to stay overnight. We were very happy to accept of course, coz you know: tipid-mode…since all expenses related to this side trip will be our personal expense already. =)

A Daytrip to the French Countryside

I’ve always dreamed of going to Europe ever since I was a kid. Back then, it was mainly because of chocolates, not of the culture and its beautiful architecture – just chocolates. I grew up receiving all sort of freebies from a lot of relatives from abroad and I thought that Europe is a land of chocolates, corned beef and lotion, so yes that explains it. =)

Until now, that dream did not change even though the reason did – it’s not just the chocolates anymore but because of the grand architectures, the art and culture (chika lang), and the beautiful people, you know what I mean (like why are they so gorgeous and everyone looks like a model, and here I am so…small, or something like that)

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 City on foot, thanks to google map!

I was blessed with a bright and sunny day on my last day in Toronto. Now that i think about it, everyone in the city might have prayed for it as it was St. Patrick’s day celebration that Sunday. The actual St. Patrick’s day was on Friday where people in the office wore greens and hats…cool stuff! ^_^

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.
