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…

lanuza-first-surfing-trip

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This post was originally published on June 24, 2016. I added some information that are more relevant for those who will visit Lanuza, Surigao del Sur.When I was a kid, I always thought that the ocean was dangerous and beautiful at the same time. Imagine those big waves rushing to the shore with strong wind blowing through the coconut trees. What a paradise! But for a child who grew up in a small town facing the pacific ocean, the sea was a tease to play with but a warning to stay safe. Having that love-hate…

freediving-in-lambug-beach-badian

It has been over a year since I started freediving. I shared my first freediving experience here in the blog and I can’t believe that for only a year, I already did a lot! (That’s according to me. HAHA)I just want to share with you that it is one of the fun outdoor activities I tried. I always tell everyone that they should try it too. I’m like a saleslady, selling my product to every single person I’m talking with. I have been asking my friends, even people I just met who like going to…

tamsui-taiwan-travel-guide

If you have limited time in Taiwan, the are a lot of day trips you can do outside of Taipei.One of these places is Tamsui.There are tons of things to do in Tamsui and this simple guide may give you a glimpse on what to expect and what to do in this part of Taiwan.For our third day, I wanted to visit the most famous destinations in the Northern part of Taiwan like Yehliu Geopark, Jiufen and Shifen. But we only had limited time, so we only visited Yehliu. (P.S. if you want to visit the…

road-trip-in-siargao-island

Back in Paradise!The first time I’ve been to Siargao, I was in awe how laid back the vibe and the people were. Also, I was surprised how much beauty it offers aside from its famous waves. The place left a mark in my heart and maybe that’s the reason why I keep on going back. It’s like a summer fling I want to experience again and again.In every visit, I can see big changes on the island, which for me is too fast. For example, I was in Siargao last November, then I’m back…

speechless-in-taiwan

We started our day with a beautiful weather. Before coming to Taiwan, they said that the weather was not nice since it was raining almost everyday. But luckily, it was sunny. Too sunny though, I was happy that we visited at the right time with a good weather.We went first to Longshan Temple. This temple was founded in 1738 by Han immigrants from Fujian.There were a lot of people, but according to Paula, it was not that crowded like most of the days. I guess luck is on our side. The temple has a great architectural structure…

Taiwan is one of my unexpected trips this year.We booked a trip to Taiwan last June knowing that our visa exemption will last until July 31, 2018. During that time, they did not announce yet when the visa exemption will be extended (it was extended July 31, 2019) and we wanted to visit Taiwan so bad, and as soon as possible.We have a friend from Spain who we met in Cebu. She is currently studying in Taiwan so we wanted to visit her.All I can say is that Taiwan is AMAZING!!I want to share with you…

4-day-travel-guide-in-coron-palawan

Coron, Palawan has been in my list of places to visit here in the Philippines.Like I intended, I should visit El Nido first (which I already did last year) then Coron (which I have done this year) *insert happy dance. I got this advice from a lot of people who already visited both destinations. You might know that these two beautiful places will always be compared with each other. They are both wonderful, but as I always say, travel and experiences will always be subjective.Like for me, I can’t compare both since when I visited El Nido…

thai-binh-province-vietnam

It was my first time to try solo travel, I’ve been saying it a couple of times that it was one of the most amazing experience I ever had.I volunteered to teach English in a Homestay in Hanoi, Vietnam. During my stay, I met a lot of wonderful people in just that short span of time. Because of them, Vietnam will always have a special place in my heart.Another thing that I always say in my travels is that, it’s the people that makes my travel more incredible. Whenever I try to recall a place, it…
