Last Day in Taipei, Taiwan

Our last day in Taipei was indeed bittersweet. We checkout our hotel at around 11AM. We were scheduled to leave Taipei at around midnight so we still had 12 hours to make the most out of it. Haha! We're talking about last minute shopping at Ximending and Shilin  Markets, a quick tour in one of the capital's contemporary museums, and digging ourselves with the best xiao long baos and pork buns of Taipei.

Best Places To Go On Holiday

I see the dawn of the new beginning.

Traveling is a great form of life investment. I've started traveling since 2012 and up to this date, I still make sure that I'd go out and explore new places one pound at a time. You know, traveling is not that really expensive if you are really resourceful. A lot of budget airlines offer cheap fares from one city to another. Today, more and more people seek new places all thanks to social media. It is really an eye-opener and an overwhelming experience to be in a place outside your comfort zone. Truly, the world is a beautiful place to explore.

Why Choosing the Perfect Luggage is So Important on a Long Trip

Long trips are fun. Instead of cramming everything you want to see and do into a few measly days, you can take your time, explore new places, and travel to multiple destinations. 

Anyone under the age of 25 has probably been backpacking, or knows someone else that has, but age is only a number and if you want to undertake a long trip, you should definitely start planning your itinerary. Of course long trips don’t have to follow the traditional backpacking trails around Southeast Asia. Plenty of people go on road trips across the U.S. or explore Europe by car or rail. The opportunities are endless, but you do need to take the right luggage – something along the lines of Rimowa suitcases will do just fine.

Getting Here: San Juanico Bridge

I can still remember the day when my Sibika at Kultura teacher in first grade showed us a photo of San Juanico Bridge, glued on a 1/4 illustration board. We were all in awe. After all, it’s the longest bridge in the Philippines, spanning a total length of 2.16 kilometers.

The Old Town named Jiufen

Sleepy mountain.

Yehliu Geopark was quite a disappointment for us. There were too many tourists, most of them from mainland whose middle names are either 'I-Don't-Follow-Rules' or 'Who-Cares'. After our hearty lunch at Family Mart, we made our way near a convenience store. According to some reliable travel blogs, buses occasionally stop here and pick up passengers bound for Jiufen.

The weather was still cold and overcast, but it didn't dampen our spirits.

Sunrise at Kalanggaman Island

The sand and the waves, and you and me.
I never thought that I'd set foot to this famed island again. This trip however was totally different from the first one. Aside from the fact that it was my first time to spend a night with people whom I barely knew (but nonetheless, they're the coolest group I've met so far), the vibe of the entire island was also different.

Quick Eats: Ironwood Hotel Tacloban

Friday night is always my me time. Ever since I reside independently here in Tacloban City, I would always go out of the house and look for some good place to eat. Being alone in restaurants, coffee shops, malls, and in the movie house surrounded by people whom I barely know doesn't bother me at all.

I've been doing this for a long time ever since I moved here two years ago but laziness took a toll on me because I'm not a huge fan of uploading photos manually. Thank God for Google Photos, life got easier.
