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…

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…

24-hours-in-singapore

Singapore has always been labeled as an expensive country. This was the reason why I do not want to stay longer and explore the place because I have a tight budget. Singapore was the first country I visited for my month long travel. I was with my boyfriend who wanted to tag along even for just 2 days before I start my solo travel. (The reason why I needed to budget).It was a quick getaway for us to travel together, and we only had 1 full day to visit the common tourist attractions in Singapore. And to tell you…

I left Singapore alone, about to embark on my adventure and surprisingly I felt nothing. I was not excited, nervous, or even skeptical about this solo travel thing. It was just blank. I was just doing the things I needed to do like going to the airport, and then wait for my boarding time.Every time I feel nothing, that’s the time I’m worried.As I was thinking why I’m not even bothered at all, my mind was updating me that I should be cautious. It was like my thoughts were jammed inside my brain then everything…

The first time I visited Siargao, all I wanted to do was to surf since it is the surfing capital of the Philippines. It turned out that the island offered (and still can offer) more than its well-known waves from the pacific. Me and my friends stayed only for four days and it was a good trip. However, it was not enough.READ: Complete Guide to make your 4-Day Experience in Siargao WorthwhileRecently, I visited Siargao Island with my boyfriend and we intended to stay longer so we opted for a 9 days trip.One of the…

One of the good parts about traveling is that I can meet a lot of people. Whether I’m the tourist or I’m the local; It connects us to one thing, travel. When we went to Hong Kong a few months ago, we met a local named Monique who went with us touring Hong Kong’s temples. She even took a day off just to take us to their tourist attractions and we tried their favorite desserts. It was one of the highlights of our travel. I believe that the people of a certain place makes my travel more…
