VIDEO: Taipei, Taiwan Vlogging with Paula

Taipei, Taiwan, July 2016 – Here is a rewind from over a year ago, when Filipinos still needed a visa to go to Taiwan. As of September this year, we can already visit visa-free, as you may know, which makes it a bit easier to go these days. I followed Paula in Taipei and  we went around […]

Chamonix, France: Road Trip from Switzerland

Chamonix, France – What I enjoyed most about Switzerland is being just half a tourist. Since I was staying at Rica’s home, I can take my time and change plans with no pressure. I was thinking of exploring the Swiss alps which they said was one of most gorgeous places in that part of the […]

Bern, Switzerland: Road Trip to the Gorgeous Old Town

Bern, Switzerland, October 3, 2016 – Euro Trip Day 2 There are way too many beautiful places to go in Switzerland that choosing which ones to visit throughout my stay was a tough job. I read about the city of Bern. The historic old town became a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983. The internet […]

VIDEO: Hiking Mt. Pinatubo

Is it nice in Mt. Pinatubo? A lot of people ask me this question. Well here’s my short answer: I’ve been there thrice. Mostly to accompany cousins from abroad. I hope that answers it. I recommend it mainly because it’s beautiful, but also because it fits the adventure and nature categories without much of the pain (i.e. […]

VIDEO: An Airbnb Birthday at Anvaya Cove

My birthday ideas for this year revolved around Airbnb listings. Seriously – a boat in Hong Kong, an island in the Philippines… There are a hundred extraordinary places to experience if you look around there.

VIDEO: Exploring Coron, Palawan

  It has been a long, long while since I’ve written anything around here. At times I feel like adult life has been pulling me away from the part of my soul that likes creating things just for the heck of it. But no. Not today. Two months ago, I “discovered” the GoPro. Of course I’ve known her […]

Temple Raiding at Siem Reap, Cambodia

SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA – Throwback from August 2013. I had a long blogging hiatus last year, but it doesn’t mean I also had an adventure hiatus. I have been out and about, as I always am, though I’ve reduced my stories to snippets of social media posts which I now only see via Timehop. Blog posts […]

The Art of Giving

MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY, ANTIPOLO CITY – I am one of those people who declutter my life as often as possible. I believe in simplicity. Once in a while I open my cabinets to check for things I don’t foresee using in the near future, and see which ones I could either give away or throw […]
