THE THING I HATE MOST ABOUT TRAVELLING

December 1, 2019

In four years of travelling, I have had my fair share of adventures, drama, heartbreaks, insanity, and what-not. If you asked me when I started if I would do this for long term, I probably would have said, 'no'. But with the joys come my fair share of loneliness, and you want to know what I hate most about travelling?…

MEXICO: IDEAS, FIRST IMPRESSION AND REALITY

November 10, 2019

Before I came to Mexico, I had a vague idea of what it was like: drug cartels, corruption, traffic, non-drinkable water, and femicide. Well, these were the things that the media have shown us. Heck, these were things that my family and friends said Mexico was like. Inevitably, these were ideas that I was lead to believe Mexico was.…

TO GO BEYOND MY COMFORT ZONE

August 6, 2019

To be honest, I am not your typical traveller. I mean, I also love going to popular cities like Paris or London or Bangkok. But these cities do not force me to come out of my shell nor of my comfort zone. These cities are beautiful, yes, but they are quite pricey and very popular. Again, these are spectacular cities, but they do not force me to come…

July 17, 2019

Every single time that I would say that I am from the Philippines, the follow-up question is always: "Wow, which part is your favourite?" This question is, then, followed by a shrug. I mean, we have more than 7,107 islands so you could imagine the difficulty choosing. But since this is an on-going question, I have finally decided to list up my favourite spots!…

ALWAYS EITHER HOME SICK OR SICK OF HOME

June 19, 2019

On my very first trip abroad, I had been a very young and seemingly clueless traveller. I had no prior travel experience and I had no idea what to do. On this very trip, I had been very home sick. But lo and behold, I had been so sick of home the very moment I got back. You see, this is the traveller’s curse. There will never be…

ISTANBUL

June 5, 2019

A few months ago, I have had the pleasure of visiting one of the most amazing cities ever: Istanbul. I came from Paris and flew directly to Istanbul. Now I have always been dreaming of coming to this historically beautiful city, so it has been such a dream come true to finally be able to do it! First order of business? Food, naturally.…

CHINESE VISA APPLICATION EXPERIENCE

May 14, 2019

Since the Philippines is soon being occupied by a lot of Chinese (loooooool), I’ve figured I should share how I applied and got my Chinese Visa. So a few weeks ago, I had a ridiculously long layover in Chengdu, China. For this layover, I had to get a Chinese Transit Visa. I applied at the Chinese Embassy in Manila, and surprisingly, the visa procedure was pretty swift. Since…
