“It’s not just a smile, it’s a statement”
For years, people have been traveling the distance to the Cebu South – to Oslob for the breathtaking Tumalog Falls, or perhaps to Badian for the more popular Kawasan Falls. But farther, there’s this unexploited treasure of a spot in the neighboring southern town of Samboan – the Aguinid Falls.
Cue in: “Cold Water” by Justin Bieber.
Nope, this is not some click-bait. We really did meet some kangaroos on the way to the mental!
I had just gotten off Facebook after watching global music royalty, Carrie Underwood’s skydiving video in Sydney. I said to myself with much conviction, “I am definitely doing that!”
It’s almost every person’s goal to travel cheap. While others like to take it hardcore, some can settle for, at least, comfortable. It’s another thing for the privileged who travel lavishly. Some want all things fine, it’s so absurd it’s unforgivable. While others, want just enough.
It was rush hour when we landed back in Sydney. It was such an amusing site to see people in the airport walking so fast. Maybe they were trying to catch transportation, avoid traffic, or make it to an appointment or something. On the other hand, we had to make it to our dinner reservation at the Sydney Tower Buffet, which I will be talking about on my next post.
In this age, travelers already have so many options to help plan dream vacations and trips. We have all these third-party travel booking websites at our disposal such as, Booking, Agoda, and the like, and they really make our lives easier. But when they fail us? Well, thank God for Airbnb!
The world’s most livable city? I can definitely say so. The culture, all that art and the quirkiness. And have I mentioned the alleys? I have this crazy thing for alleys, and I guess I’ve had enough of them to last me till next year! O Melbourne, you enchant me!
Cebu’s ever-growing love for food and art would be very evident with this new, photogenic landmark that’s about to flood your Instagram and Facebook feeds, not to mention the traffic that would ensue the moment it opens!
Who doesn’t know Hillsong?
Lunch at 4pm at the Australian capital? Easy! That’s what you get from days of exhausting activities. We planned to leave at 8am, but we woke up very late so we were only able to depart at past 9am.
On our second day in Sydney, we planned on going to Bondi Beach. But coordinating with friends didn’t work out, so we ended up taking the train up to Katoomba instead, where the Blue Mountains and the Three Sisters, Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo are (Aboriginal legend).
When one thinks of Australia, I’m sure these two are the very first things that will cross your mind. They’re icons, not just of Sydney, but of Australia as a country, which also is a whole continent in itself. Ladies and gents, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
We waited five months from that time we booked our tickets, to the day we finally flew to Sydney. So we were no less than ecstatic!
Australia has never been in our travel plans, personally, and as a family. Not that we have anything against it, it’s just that Australia never really crossed our minds.
Here we are getting locked on to love at the N Seoul Tower.
Like the DMZ, we also weren’t able to visit Everland in our first trip to Korea. But it seems, we really do get a happy ever after in the end.
Wasn’t able to go to the Korea Demilitarized Zone on our first visit to South Korea, and so we made sure to make it happen this time.
When I travel, museums are always on my list of to-visit places. Oh how I just love museums. I get all ecstatic inside, like a kid in a candy shop! 😀
