Happy New Year! How’s everyone doing out there? I hope everything is doing good with you all. I just looked at the calendar to make it sure that I will not make a mistake. And yes, we are indeed in the third weekend of January 2015. Isn’t it a blessing to be well and alive for another year? I believed yes! It is the greatest blessing to be here in this universe for another year!
The best part of the season is remembering
those who make the holidays meaningful.
We wish you all the love and happiness this season can bring,
and may it follow you throughout the coming new year.
Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas to everyone!

I am back here! I have so many travel experiences to share but time is always limited now. I wish I can share more often in this blog even just photographs of the places I visited but with the many things that keep me busy the past 3 months, it is quite impossible. I will still my best to share my travels when time will allow me.
The Abbey of Saint Gall, known in German as Fürstabtei St. Gallen, is a Roman Catholic religious complex in the city of St. Gallen. It was founded by an Irish monk named Gallus around 613, a disciple and companion of Saint Columbanus, who established a hermitage on the site that would become the Abbey. In 1983, the Convent of St. Gall was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “a perfect example of a great Carolingian monastery”.

That was really a fun day! I and a friend went to the Oktoberfest in Munich last month. We took the train in going there and it was quite scary riding the train without a ticket. There was a story behind it and I will surely share it in my next post. It was quite an adventure and we were lucky to solve the problem. Sometimes the power of speaking and explanation can really help. This is especially true if you speak the local language. I am thankful, I can speak and understand German language. In short, we were able to obtain a train ticket from the inspector.

I was deciding whether to go to this so-called Tillyfest festival or not. The rain was on and off that day but then, I decided to go. When I left home, the rain stopped for awhile. After some minutes of arriving in Breitenbrunn, the rain started to pour again but it did not hindered the parade that took place that afternoon.

Tillyfest is an annual festival held every month of September in Breitenbrunn, a municipality in the district of Neumarkt in Bavaria in Germany. If I am not mistaken, it is held every second weekend of September. The festival is unique on its own. It might not be a big festival but celebrating and seeing its parade is very interesting. It is already a part of the culture, history and solidarity of the people in this town. ==> READ MORE

Hello peeps! How have you been? The harvest month is almost ending and I hope that you are all doing great out there. It is time to slowly and gladly say goodbye to August and continue to hope that the coming month will be a better, or I would say great one for us all.
I am happy because I finally had the chance to talk to my family back home. I miss home so much but since I just spent a vacation there recently , to be exact almost 3 months ago, it is impossible for me to travel now especially that I am working already.
The water is just direct in my door step. This place is a paradise for me. I wish to be there again next time. ==> READ MORE

I have live in the Philippines half of my life but it was the first time when I visited this beautiful place. Imagine visiting 7,107 islands? I haven’t been to all of these island but I already visited its three biggest archipelagos namely Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. I have been to many places in my home country and hopefully when I retire there for good, I can visit more places again.
The beautiful white sand beach in Boracay. This is the beach front of Mandarin Resort Boracay, the hotel where we stayed for three nights. It was indeed a luxury vacation that time. So thankful for my siblings for this holiday.

Summer time is one of the best time to visit Germany. This is where you can find a lot of festivals from Volksfest to Weinfest, Sommerfest, Medieval festivals, Music festivals and more. Last Sunday, we went to the Volksfest, (literally translated as People’s Festival) in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz or Neumarkt Upper Palatinate.

The weather was sunny that time or I would say, was really hot. It is better than having a rainy day. The parade started at around 2:00 PM but they already arrived in the Altstadt or Old City of Neumarkt at around 2:30 PM. According to the newspaper last Monday, it was participated by 103 groups. ==> READ MORE
