AUSTRALIA 2017: Kangaroos on the way to the “mental.”

Travel

Nope, this is not some click-bait. We really did meet some kangaroos on the way to the mental!

AUSTRALIA 2017: Hyde Park & St. Mary’s Cathedral Sydney

Travel

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.

Travel

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!

AUSTRALIA 2017: Melbourne

People, Travel

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! 

AUSTRALIA 2017: Hillsong

Music, Travel

Who doesn’t know Hillsong? 

AUSTRALIA 2017: Canberra

Travel

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.

AUSTRALIA 2017: Blue Mountains & The Three Sisters

Travel

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). 

AUSTRALIA 2017: Sydney Opera House & Sydney Harbour Bridge

Travel

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.

KOREA 2016: DMZ – Demilitarized Zone

Travel

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. 

KOREA 2016: National Museum of Korea & War Memorial of Korea

Travel

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! 😀

KOREA 2016: Jeju Island

Travel

You might have seen some of the stunning, romantic scenery on this island in your favorite Korean dramas, and I never thought I’d actually get to go there in my lifetime.

KOREA 2015: Jangchung Gymnasium & Kyung Hee University

People, Travel

Right after wandering around Gwanghwamun Plaza and Gyeongbokgung Palace, we then made our way to lunch at Namdaemun Market. Unfortunately, I don’t have any shots of that because our Korean companions warned us of snatchers. Oh well, better safe than sorry. We instead, just made the most out of our very limited time for shopping.

KOREA 2015: Gyeongbokgung Palace & Gwanghwamun Plaza

Travel
Built in 1395, it probably is the most iconic landmark in Seoul, South Korea. The Gyeongbokgung or Gyeongbok Palace, was home to the Kings of the Joseon Dynasty. It also served as the seat of government for centuries.

Malaysia 2014: George Town, Penang

Travel

It was a very tedious ride from Bangkok to Butterworth, Penang. We were on that train for literally, 23 hours! But what was worse was that we went 40 hours without a shower! Gross, I know. Let me narrate it to you.

CAMBODIA 2014: Siem Reap

Travel

Like I said in my previous blog, our trip to Siem Reap was such an ordeal, that’s because we were ripped-off.

CAMBODIA 2014: Phnom Penh

Travel
Before leaving Saigon, we already booked our land transfers to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and then to Bangkok, as we would only be spending at least a day in each of the Cambodian cities. The bus fetched us at the hotel around 8am. We also picked-up some tourists that would be taking the trip with us.

VIETNAM 2014: Saigon

Travel

Our early morning JetStar flight to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) was very exciting. As the airport slowly came alive, the queues started to build up, we wondered why our flight schedule still wasn’t flashed on the screens. We asked some airport people but they only told us to wait…over and over again. Next thing we knew, our flight was already boarding! We almost missed our flight! But thank God for some people who helped us and let us cut through the line. And boy was the run from check-in to the gate, long! Haha
