Oh! Hello there again my blog! Yeah, I know it’s been a while since my last entry and I’m just so excited to start sharing our journeys again. I’ve been busy with a lot of other things but had managed to fulfill some of my greatest travel wishes. Can’t wait to share them so I’ll start with this one. Ever since I was a child, I always wonder how the snow looks like and how would it feel touching it. I believe this is the same sentiment for those wonderers who live in tropical countries. While this is not my…

I’m already in my mid-30s and I have never entered a cinema alone. Watching a movie all by myself inside a big and dark theatre is one of my greatest fears that I would like to overcome for the longest time. It was a challenge for me to conquer this fear until today. Something came up and I realized that today is the best time to finally do it on my own.  While lining up in the ticket booth for almost 30 minutes,  my will and fear are battling inside my head. I admit there are times that I almost…

This news got me excited! After our successful visa application and trip to Japan, we are eyeing Korea to be our next destination for winter next year. When we came back from Vietnam, we have been doing some researches on how to apply for Korean visa but as the looks of it (and hope this will materialize) we may not need to apply.  Let’s wait and see… Anyways, I reposted here the news from Manila Bulletin’s website published on April 13, 2017. Filipinos and other Southeast Asian tourists will soon be able to visit South Korea easily under special conditions. Philippine…

“And we can still feel the tenderness of mountain’s green grasses that embraced our feet as we walk onto it…” The first time I had a glimpse of Batanes from the plane, I can’t help but stare until we landed. I’m stunned with it’s breathtaking beauty and I’m just so excited to experience and look at it closely. The weather is fair but the sun is eye-blindingly bright so I’m wearing my shades that morning. Looking through those dark lenses, I’m seeing Batanes like on a postcard.  It’s just too good to be true! I remember praising God repeatedly for…

On the day we left Batanes before heading to the airport, our service driver asked us, “Wala na po ba kayong naiwan, Mam, Sir? (Have you not forgotten anything, Mam, Sir?)”, then I replied, “Meron po eh, naiwan ko po ang puso ko (I think… I left my heart)”. Then the driver smiled with pride. I know he is proud. It is true! Batanes with its incomparable beauty is hard to leave and forget. It made us fall in love as soon as we laid our eyes on it and experienced the genuine honesty and simplicity of its people. And…

Known as the the Little Las Vegas of Asia, Macau (Macao) is definitely a land of luck and night life. Most people go to this place to play but like other passionate travelers, our reason is to explore and experience it the best way we can. We are so blessed to explore this once a Portuguese-colony China territory three times in the last five years. I once dream of stepping on this land since college (because of Boys Over Flowers Koreanovela) and looking back, I’ve fulfilled that dream over and over again. Ruins of St Paul…
