Alas! I can finally tick-off skiing from my bucket list. Not that my skiing skills are something to be proud of but this winter activity has been on my list for a long time already. This tropical girl, born under the sun, finally got her hands on these skiing gears and that, my friend, is something that I can rejoice– for now. For the skills? Well, I guess I can improve that later on.
Traveling from the Philippines all the way to Bulgaria sounds like a crazy decision to some but for me, it’s an adventure that will last a lifetime. Two weeks was not enough to entirely discover Bulgaria but it’s enough to make me fall in love with its people and culture. I can’t believe Filipinos are skipping this in their travel plans.
If you happen to be in Zaltbommel or any nearby towns and you’re looking for a decent hotel with luxurious treats, Van der Valk Hotel in Zaltbommel is a perfect find. Located on the outskirts of Amsterdam, this hotel has a peaceful and calm neighborhood which gives you a break from busy tourists and backpackers.
Netherlands is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. Regardless if you’re up for a week-long excursion in Germany or you’re in the middle of your Eurotrip, a side trip to the Netherlands is always a must in your itinerary. Who would dare to skip sight-seeing rows of beautiful tulips, cruising the long rivers, and enjoying an afternoon with freshly made stroopwafels? I’m not sure about you but skipping these off my list is unforgivable. Aside from that, there’s definitely more to this kingdom than these wonderful travel gems.
Dumaguete City is quite popular as the perfect place to chill out and unwind from the stressful metropolis traffic. But apart from the laidback vibes of the city, it also opens doors for adventure seekers like scuba divers where they can explore the rich marine life in Apo Island. However, the waters of Apo Island is not only restricted for professional divers and underwater daredevils. Swimming with sea turtles or pawikan is also possible even for the frustrated swimmers like me.
South Cebu roadtrip.. why not?
A spontaneous road trip is one of the ultimate travel goals so why not take a tour in South Cebu? The Southern part of Cebu leaves you with choices of adrenaline-pumping and relaxing activities– both on the same side of the plate. So without further adieu, here’s how we conquered South Cebu with our 2 days and 1-night road trip experience.
If you’re someone who has been to Cebu or proudly from Cebu, I’m pretty sure you already ticked off Osmeña Peak and Kawasan Falls in your list. I guess I am an exception though because even though I was born and raised in Cebu I have never been to these spots until recently. Located in South Cebu, these two usually go together in every trips whether you’re a mountaineer or a mere tourist who wants to explore the highest point of Cebu and down to the enchanting waters of Kawasan Falls. If you’re planning on a Cebu adventure, you might want to add these two in your itinerary.
You might (or might not) heard of them yet but you can also find a taste of Amsterdam, Greece, and China without spending thousands of your hard earned money. How? Cebu’s Sirao Garden, Temple of Leah and Taoist Temple got your back. So if you happen to be in this lovely island for a day or two, ditch your passports for now and brace yourself for a multi-national tour without leaving Cebu.
It was one hell of a magical night when we decided to visit ‘s-Hertogenbosch. I know it’s a bit difficult to remember– it’s something like “heterogeneous” and sounds like “heshcdsrfjsdskkj”. (Yes! Emphasis on the “g” + “sch” sound in Dutch which really hurts my throat by the way). Later on, I found out that it is colloquially known as Den Bosch which is not that difficult to remember for me. Thank goodness!
Setting that aside, I was really mesmerized by its beauty. If you want to know what I am talking about, here’s a sneak peek and my list of 4 (+1) things to see while at Den Bosch.
