The time was almost midnight. It was our first night at our bamboo cottage. We looked around and wondered whether the nipa wall could survive an attack. From what, we didn't know. The horror legends are enough to scare us out of our wits. We hear a scream just a few meters behind our cottage.... Continue Reading →
Beaches near Manila? I search for that all the time too. But let's be honest, the good beaches are at least 4 hours away. Luckily for all of us, I found a solution, Shercon Resort & Ecology Park. I'm never one for resorts, at least since I've found love in the sea and the sand... Continue Reading →
Welcome to South Korea's largest filming location! With over 200 shanties from the 1950s to 1990s, you can practically film your own K-drama right here!
'A day trip in Jeonju' is a guide I have read far too many times from too many blogs. I guess it only shows how busy the people of Seoul are, or how little time tourists can allot in this so-called Slow City. I can't really blame them. But after spending a night here, I... Continue Reading →
First of all, feel free to skip all the drama and go straight to my watered down, important only deats about Jeonju Hanok Village. But if you have nothing better to do than read what happens to a girl traveling with a period then by all means read the next paragraph. I wake up to... Continue Reading →
Traveling alone in a foreign country, with only a level 1 knowledge of their language, was more difficult than I ever thought. I did not put into consideration the lack of English (or even romanized) signs, much less English speaking people. But this adventure opened my eyes to a whole new side of South Korea, and helped me get to know this small country a little better.
Traveling to South Korea was a high school dream, one that I realized while re-watching Princess Hours for the nth time through a borrowed DVD. Coming from a very practical family - who rarely went out of the realms of Cavite and Batangas, or spent on anything beyond what was really necessary - traveling was... Continue Reading →
While there are tons of things to do around Seoul during the day, it is always the nights that I look forward to – beautiful, magical, and ironically in this busy city, peaceful. Everything slows down as the lights color the night and drown your mind with bliss.
It was really a pity we didn't get to spend as much time as we wanted in Seoul Forest. At that time I badly wished we didn't lose all that time getting lost. One day I hope I could come back with a mat, a basket full of food, and a good book. I wish one day I could return to Seoul and spend a whole day doing nothing, not feeling the need to hurry, because I have a lot of time. I would need a full month for that kind of 'vacation.' One day.
