It was the first place we visited that day. I already set the alarm at 6:30 in the morning. The breakfast at the hotel will be at 7:30 AM. That time, I know for sure, I am done in preparing myself before the trip begin.
Santarcangelo di Romagna is not so far from where we stayed during that 8-day trip in Italy including San Marino. It is less than 20 kilometers from our hotel in Rimini. At 8:30 AM, the bus will already start moving. I was 5 minutes earlier in going to the bus because I don’t want to be the last one. If you are the last and worst will be late, you will surely caught the attention of other passengers.
The Collegiate Church in the middle of the image in Santarcangelo di Romagna. It is one of the most important 18th century buildings in the whole territory of Rimini; built between 1744 and 1758 by Gian Francesco Buonamici, Chamber architect and architect of the cathedral of Ravenna, with its grandiose and refined interior similar to the Roman and Bolognese forms. ==> READ MORE

It was good to be backed to Venice again! The trip in Italy is over now and all I have are the memories and the photographs I took from those trips we did to the different places there. I never had enough of Venice and I keep on coming back in this beautiful city. Indeed, for me it is always one of the most beautiful cities I visited in Europe. I won’t be there again and again if I don’t love it!

After the many visits I had in Würzburg, I finally had a tour inside the Würzburg Residenz (Wuerzburg Residence). It was during my 5th visit when I had the chance to have a sightseeing inside this beautiful palace in Wuerzburg. I escorted the relatives of my friends who were visiting Europe last summer 2012.
If you are visiting this city, don’t miss this historic building. I was only saddened because taking pictures are not allowed inside the palace.

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.

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
