Why my thoughts are with Brenda?

at

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been exploring Mindanao with my parents one summer at a time, or as much as we can. We always make time to travel especially during school breaks when we are all free. I remember that last minute travel decision making was the most exciting thing to do. They are the reasons why I like traveling. My parents made it look so easy. We just go with a tight budget but always ended up completely happy with our vacation.And through our trips together as a family, I met Brenda.I was…

Travel Guide to Britania Group of Islands, Surigao del Sur

at

The last time I visited Britania group of islands was in 2013, when there was no tourist. Mostly, the visitors at that time were from Surigao del Sur like us, and from the nearby provinces.Fast forward from now, I visited the islets again and a lot has changed. From small boats to big island hopping boats, from no crowd to tons of people flocking in each island. I guess time flies really fast and I guess it is safe to say that news travels faster than time.So if you want to visit these islands, here’s a comprehensive…

How my blog helped me find Online Jobs (+ Easy steps on how to start a blog)

at

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, Surigao del Sur Travel Guide: My First Surfing Trip Experience

at

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…

Being Speechless in Taiwan Made Me Realize Something!

at

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…

Eating my way around Taiwan. Starting at Shilin Night Market

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.

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…
