 Marine Life in Great Barrier Reef from Bundaberg, AustraliaA great place to see marine life is on the Great Barrier Reef.  We have visited many times from various points.  Recently we visited the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef from Bundaberg.We snorkeled in the coral reef off Lady Musgrave Island where we were surrounded by hundreds of colourful tropical fish.  On board the glass bottom boat we saw 7 turtles, some people were even lucky enough to see the turtles whilst snorkeling.On our way back on the boat to Bundaberg we had a wonderful experience where…

freediving-in-philippines-the-ultimate-list

Sometimes, all we need is to say yes.I already shared my first freediving experience here in the blog and I mentioned that my boyfriend invited me to try freediving. It was a memorable experience and I’m happy (until now) that I said YES to his invitation.Through freediving, I experienced a lot of wonderful memories and feeling that I haven’t done and felt before. Underwater is a beautiful scenery and it gives a different feeling each time I can glimpse of marine life. All I want is to stay for a much longer time with every dive…

The moment I started college, I wanted to document my experiences growing up, how it’s like living miles away from home, experiencing things for the first time and everything I do as a college student. I knew that it was a new chapter of my life and documenting it will be memorable and fun.I have been keeping journals since I was 16 years old. I write every day, 365 days a year. No misses.I’m not quite sure why I like to write. I don’t like the subject English, my grammar is not good, my vocabulary…

After our amazing experience chasing whale sharks in Pintuyan. We went directly to Limasawa island.Some of my friends visited the island and I heard a lot of good things about it.

visited-bantayan-island-again

Reminiscing my first visitI remember the first time I visited Bantayan Island.I was 16, and about to enter college. I took the university’s entrance exam and the school’s administration office said that the result will be revealed after a week. We needed to wait so that I could enroll to the university. During that time, we stayed in my Aunt’s house, she is Mama’s first cousin. While waiting for the result, they decided to go to Bantayan Island, where my grandfather was born.I actually had no idea about the island back then. I…

travel-solo-while-married

I always believed that in order to grow, we have to experience things on our own. Having our own space means we can decide, execute and reflect about our own actions. And by that, it can lead to a better version of ourselves.I already shared with you some girls all over the world who travel solo for while being in a relationship. I learned a lot from them, but I also wondered if there are women who travel solo while married. And I am glad to find some of those strong independent women.Here are some of their experiences…

I almost didn’t go to this trip, because of shallow reasons involving money. In case you didn’t know, I do not have a job. Not that you care about this, but as an obvious reason, it is an important way to generate money and to make my travel dreams come true (A little bit exaggerated but I know that you get it). Anyway, I’m grateful that I have the energy and a boyfriend who supports me in everything I do, and I went anyway.Accompanied by fellow freedivers. We had one goal. To see and swim with…

Malaysia was the last leg of my journey to visit during my Southeast Asia quick escape. It was also the most difficult one for me.Solo travel is a challenge, especially for me who tried it for the first time. But throughout my travel, some of my destinations went pretty easy.Singapore was easy because I have Hernan, my boyfriend, during that time. He has always been my navigator slash translator slash everything when we travel. It’s not like I’m useless, I’m just lazy.Vietnam was wonderful because I was surrounded with a lot of people that…

best-places-to-travel-solo-philippines

Traveling is one of the most liberating things to do. No matter what kind of traveler we are, we can experience different situations, and from that, we can tell different stories to other people.I experienced different versions of being a traveler. It all started one summer at a time in my homeland, Mindanao, as a family travel. Then college came, group of friends started to explore the nearby towns in Cebu. After college, I experienced traveling with strangers in a boat for four days and three nights on an island hoping in Leyte. And recently, I experienced traveling alone…
