It is almost two months now since my visit in Ireland. Times really flies so fast. It seems like last week when I was there but when I was looking at the calendar, it’s already almost two months. I was boarding Aer Lingus and we landed in Dublin Airport. One of the places where we did some sightseeing was in Ireland’s capital city.

It was my third visit in Germany’s fourth largest city named Cologne. My first visit was in 2006, followed in 2010 and the recently last May 5, 2013. It was quite a long drive from our place in Bavaria. Thanks to my dear friend Joy for being a power driver. I admired her driving to long distance places. We arrived in Cologne at around 1:00 in the afternoon. We were quite hungry that time and the first thing we did was to find a restaurant nearby to eat. We found an Asian restaurant near the Cathedral.
I am back here! I was feeling a bit dizzy awhile ago and so thankful that I am feeling better now. I was also browsing my photo album files browsing for the picture I made from my travel book collection. It seems that I cannot find it at the moment. I would like to add some Becks Books in my collection. I am trying to browse their site and want to know about the shipping to Europe. ==> READ MORE

It was indeed a lovely day in Oslo. The weather was quite cold with a temperature of 13 degree Celsius. The only good thing was, it was not raining like what I had expected. The sky was bit cloudy and sometimes the sun was shining. The cruise trip we did with Aidabella ship brought us to Norway’s lovely capital. After my friend decided to come with me, I booked the trip immediately without second thoughts. I cannot travel alone with that trip because the charge for single room was very expensive. I have to pay 379 Euros extra if I will book a cabin with window. I am so thankful that a friend decided to come with me. She was very happy as we experienced a lot during that cruise trip.
The view of Oslo City from our Aidabella ship. I am missing this recent travel I had with a friend. We were in Oslo from April 29-30, 2013. Our ship docked at around 10 PM last April 29. We also did some night sightseeing. ==> READ MORE
It was our first day during that cruise. Before the huge ship started to navigate on the sea, the captain welcome all the passengers boarding in Aidabella. I smiled when I heard him over the speakers, telling the whole passengers of the ship to expect to gain one kilo a day during that cruise. I believed he is right!

Are you looking for a chance to take some great pictures on your next holiday? Europe offers some of the most gorgeous places in the world to photograph due to its mix of history, culture and landscape. Here are some of Europe’s most photogenic spots, where you can take postcard-worthy photos all day long.
Tuscany is known for its gently rolling hills, groves of olive trees and fields filled with brilliant yellow sunflowers. Here you can photograph Roman ruins, medieval churches, and rustic villages. It also has a mild, pleasant climate, which is ideal for outdoor photo shoots. Finally, you work on your food photography by visiting one of the region’s renowned cooking schools.
Home of some of the world’s most dramatic rock formations, the fjords, Norway is an ideal place for outdoor, nature and adventure photography. At Stavangar, you can hike to the top of a fjord and look down on the ocean, Or, if you prefer to look up, you can take a boat tour through the fjord and see the cliffs against a clear sky. If you’re really feeling adventurous, you could try rock-climbing or kayaking to get that perfect shot.
This preserved medieval city in Western Flanders is known for its stunning medieval architecture, which poses just above the narrow cobbled streets and dreamy grey canals. In the spring, you may be able to photograph the swans in the canals or the daffodils blooming in the city’s old convent. The city is even beautiful in the rain, of which it receives plenty. ==> READ MORE

Ireland trip is over but the travel memories I had in that country still lingers in my mind. It seems like yesterday when I was there. I am so thankful that I was given the chance to visit it. I am planning to come back anytime this year.
How did I find my first Irish dinner? Of course I am also thinking of healthy eating ideas when I am on holiday. I also love eating meat and poultry but I prefer to eat fruits and vegetables during a meal. Here are my first Irish dinner in our hotel in Dublin City during my one week vacation in Ireland last month.
Sliced baked pork with whisky sauce, potato puree and carrots. ==> READ MORE

Planning to visit Las Vegas? Don’t miss to visit this beautiful themed hotel named Luxor Las Vegas. You feel like visiting Luxor in Egypt when you are there. The architecture itself with its pyramid-shaped like building looks awesome! Luxor Las Vegas contains a total of 4,400 rooms, including 442 suites, lining the interior walls of a pyramid style tower and within twin 22-story ziggurat towers that were built as later additions.
I guess I am lucky to visit this hotel many times during my visit to the “World’s Entertainment and Gaming Capital.” I visited Las Vegas twice. The first time was in 2008 and the second time was last year in summer.

I seldom hear or listen to country music. When I was in Ireland, I always hear Irish country folk music while we were traveling.. Our tour guide always played Irish songs everyday in our bus. I find the songs quite interesting and it is good to the ears. During our stop in Sneem, I ended up buying some CD’s containing Irish folk music. Next time, I would love to visit gibson custom shop to see what music instruments or music gadgets to be found in this store. I am a music lover and I love singing as well. My friends told me that I have a nice voice but I am only good in karaoke singing. lolz!
Our tour guide recommend us to this music store in Sneem, Ireland. I am quite sad because the owner put the wrong CD in one of the case. ==> READ MORE

That was short but wonderful trip I had in Seattle. I want to thank a friend for their kindness and generosity in touring me to this city and other interesting places in the area. From Eugene, Oregon, I took the train Amtrak Cascades going to Seattle. It was quite a long trip but I did enjoyed watching the scenes along the way.
I did visited some sights when I was in Seattle. Thanks to Ate Thel for bringing me in Pike Place Market and to the top of Space Needle. The latter was one of the reasons why I want to visit this city. I watched the movie entitled Sleepless Nights in Seattle. This movie inspired me to visit this city and to go up on top of Space Neddle. That was indeed a dream come true!
The Space Needle. A short monorail ride away from downtown is Seattle’s most iconic landmark. It is quite expensive to ride to the top but the Space Needle is a “must see” for visitors on a nice day. That was indeed a great day being on top and had a breathtaking 360 view of the city. One dream was fulfilled when I was there!
