I believed some of you already visited Venice, Italy. Some of you might also had experienced the gondola ride around the canals of Venice. I did and I experienced it twice. I already visited Venice four times and can’t wait to visit it again for the fifth time next week. Yes, I am traveling again this year and I am hoping for more travels to come.
Taken while riding a gondola in Venice, Italy during my fourth visit in summer 2011.
During my second ride in gondola last summer 2011. We were lucky because a gondolier, the person who navigate a gondola, was singing live as they were approaching us. In this gondola, there was a couple whom I guessed just got engaged. That was very romantic and interesting. Imagine witnessing a gondolier singing? ==> READ MORE

Hello March! Wow, finally March is here! I hope your February turned out great and you had accomplished some things in your life, maybe a dream or simply a wish that you always wanted to come true! More on that I wish you all a lovely month of March.
I finally sent again some postcards last week. This time it is going to Pakistan. We have a group on facebook named Postcrossing and the members are exchanging postcards with each other. As of now, it has over 16,00 members from around the world. I love collecting postcards and I hope to exchange and receive some from other members of this group.
Here are the photos of the postcards. I sent it last February 25, 2014 to a guy named Bilal from Pakistan.

I can’t imagine that this week is already the last week of the month. Indeed, February is almost ending. I was thinking awhile ago about my last vacation in Las Vegas. Exactly today, it is a year and a half now since my last vacation in the United States. I visited some places there and I stayed most of the time in Las Vegas.
I know it will take time again to visit United States again especially that my financiers which are my siblings, will take me to Asia this year. yay! One of the things that I am missing in Las Vegas are its free shows and entertainments. Well, what can you expect with this so called “World’s Gaming and Entertainment Capital”? Wherever you go especially in the Strip, you will surely never get bored. ==> READ MORE

If you love outdoor activities from hiking to walking, trekking, skiing, biking, cycling and more, Andorra is the best place for your to visit.
I have been planning to visit Andorra since 3 years ago. Finally last summer 2013, I did visited this landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe. Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra (Catalan: Principat d’Andorra), also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra is located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.
It was our 5th day of sightseeing. I set my alarm at 7:15 that morning to make it sure that I woke-up at the right time. We always had good breakfast buffet in our 4-star hotel named Andorra Hotel. After taking my breakfast, I went back to my hotel room ,did some personal necessities, brushed my teeth and got ready for our trip that day. ==> READ MORE

Whose not going to miss this lovely place! This place will always be my home. It is simply saying, “there is no place like home!”. I hope you agree with that. Wherever I travel in this world, nothing can replace the country where I grew up. Everytime I miss home, all I need to do is to take a look of the pictures I took from my previous vacations.

There are several reason why The Republic of Costa Rica is an example of a country that has been able to make tourism work well for it.
There are many places in the world where tourism has proved to be, at best, a mixed blessing. Places where the economic benefits tourist dollars brought with them have not been able to offset the damage done to culture and environment by unsustainable development. That, for the most part is not the case with Costa Rica.

Oslo, the capital of Norway is one of the cities in my bucketlist to visit. I was telling myself since living in Europe for 10 years that I will visit all the Scandinavian capitals one day. It finally did came true. 2013 was a great travel year for me. After visiting 23 countries in Europe including Norway, I am already happy and contented with what I had achieved last year. 2013 was indeed an awesome, blessed travel year for me.
The Royal Palace in Oslo by night, known in Norwegian as Slottet, was built in the first half of the 19th century as the Norwegian residence of King Charles III, who also reigned as king of Sweden and otherwise resided there, and is the official residence of the present Norwegian monarch. ==> READ MORE

I know what you’re thinking. If I say it, the jinx fairy will come crashing down and sprinkle its mystical dust all over your upcoming holiday. But alas, it must be said. Are you ready? Jet lag; the bane of any traveller’s existence. Whether you are frequent road warrior or have ever planned a holiday to a distant location, you would have experienced He Who Must Not Be Named (yes, Jetlag you’re right up there with Voldemort!)
For those playing at home, jet lag occurs when there is a misalignment between the actual time zone and your circadian clock. Jumping across time zones adversely affects your ability to sleep, levels of alertness and your immune system. Jet lag generally wears off within a couple of days, however if you neglect your bodies demands, your fun-filled trip will only be enjoyed from the comfort of your hotel bed.

Leading the life of a business traveller can be a bit of a whirlwind adventure. If you are a frequent flyer, country hopping and living out of a suitcase can often make you feel like you are burning the candle at both ends. While there are undeniable perks associate with travelling on company paid time, the stress of it can leave you disorientated. It’s not like taking a regular holiday where you can move around as you please at your own pace.

This is one of the famous festival I miss in the Philippines. I witnessed it twice and it just makes me happy everytime it is celebrated in January each year.
The Sinulog is an annual festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City. It is also held in other places in the Philippines like in Maasin City, Southern Leyte, and Balingasag, Misamis Oriental in the Philippines. The town Midsayap in the province of North Cotabato also have the same version of this festival and they called it “Halad”. The festival commemorates the Filipino people’s pagan origin, and their acceptance of Roman Catholicism. ==> READ MORE
