Did Keukenhof ring a bell? Pretty sure you’re thinking of the vast tulip field in Lisse which only opens during the Spring season but it’s not what this post is all about. Unfortunately, I was too late to catch this flower show during my visit last August. This, however, did not stop me and my boyfriend to travel all the way to Lisse to see what remains of this spectacular garden which eventually led us to a different secret garden in the heart of Kasteel Keukenhof.
12 hours seems so short for all of them yet, I had all the time to get lost. What a day! In the end, I was able to do only less than half of my plans. As I came to reflect on this trip, I can’t help but to ask myself, “Did I really waste my time this time?”. To wrap everything up, here are the things that I learned from getting lost in Hong Kong on a 12-hour layover.
Layovers can be boring or exciting. It depends on how you make the most out of it but most of the times, it surely depends if the Passport Control officers allow you to pass the gate without sacrificing a chicken to the travel gods. HAHA! My trip to Bulgaria was surely a long one and with the 12 hours layover in Hong Kong, it seems like forever! But all thanks to the visa-free policy, I had the chance to sight-see these Hong Kong attractions… or not.
Photos help keep good memories but let’s just admit it… we always find something to take home at the end of our trips. Aside from chocolates, keychains, fridge magnets, and coasters are the most popular souvenirs to bring home to our friends and family that most of us now have a mountain of piled keychains or a wall of fridge magnets at home. So to give you an idea for your next travel goal, I compiled unique souvenirs that you can find when traveling around the world.
A low-cost weekend is one of the greatest things on Earth. Fortunately, you won’t have a hard time fitting a small budget for a great weekend when you’re on the Land of Roses. How? Read this guide to know how, where and why you should be partying in Bulgaria.
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.
Getting a Bulgarian visa is not that common for travelers because anyone who has a Schengen visa, which is a more popular one, can enter this Southeast European country with it. If you’re someone who needs a Bulgarian visa or you’re simply curious how I got mine, here’s a not-so-long post that can give you some information.
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.
