PHOTO DIARY: Taiwan It That Way



Taiwan is not that difficult to love. Despite being a fairly small country, Taiwan boasts a LOT of activities and sceneries. On our first day, we traveled north and visited some tourist attractions such as National Palace Museum and Yangmingshan National Park. While roaming, we chanced upon a few cherry blossom trees and instantly became the highlight of our first day. Later in the afternoon, we went exploring Yehliu Geopark and Jiufen which were all familiar to me. A wave of nostalgia hit me as I walked the familiar path of Yehliu and Jiufen.

As they always say, love is lovelier the second time around.

PHOTO DIARY: If I Was You, Taiwan Be Me Too



I fell in love with Taiwan last year and made myself a promise to explore more of this underrated country in my next visit. Fast forward to October last year, we scored a low fare to Taipei. I never thought I'd enjoy Taiwan again, most especially if I am with eleven millennials who are a million times crazier than me.

Taiwan, you never fail to amaze me.

The Top 4 Experiences to try in Spain



Looking for new experiences? We’ve cherry picked a few of the best opportunities Spain has to offer, from scenic mountains to rich, diverse culture.

Picos de Europa

Translating to the "Peaks of Europe" – and often known as the Picos – this mountain range, situated 20km from the Northern coast of Spain, provides a stunning backdrop to a range of activities, from the serene to the adventurous. Bridging the Cantabrian, Asturias and Castile and León regions, these impressive peaks are part of the Cantabrian range. The origin of the name comes from the belief that they were the initial view of Europe for approaching American ships.

Nami Island: Winter Sonata Adventure


On our fourth day in Korea, we rode a train to Gapyeong Station, the jump-off point to Nami Island. But on our way, I fell asleep on the train, and my travel buddy was too preoccupied on her phone. In a nutshell: we arrived an hour late, and we were all hungry. Getting lost in the middle of the frigid winter can be very challenging!

Good thing was, there were only a few tourists when we board the boat to Nami Island.

Infograph: Why Should People Stay in B&B's



Over the years, more and more types of accommodations have sprung out to cater the needs of travelers. Some choose hostels because it's cheap, others book at 5-star hotels because they want to experience luxury (or better yet, they have a lot of moolahs and they are willing to spend huge amounts for their vacation).

Today, B&B's or bed and breakfast is slowly overtaking the conventional type of accommodation. A bed and breakfast is a small lodging establishment that offers overnight accommodation and breakfast. Bed and breakfasts are often private family homes and typically have between four and eleven rooms, with six being the average. Generally speaking, guests are accommodated in private bedrooms, or in a suite with a private bathroom. There are some homes, however, that have private bedrooms with shared bathrooms, just like a typical home. As the name implies, breakfast is usually served in bed, or guests may opt to have their breakfasts served at the kitchen or at the dining room.

Guests will have this 'homey' feel whenever they stay at a B&B. More so, it is an amazing experience that you wouldn't get from staying at a hotel or any other typical accommodation.

Here's a very nice infograph stating why should people stay in B&B's.

Searching for Seoul's Soul



And the soul-searching in Seoul continues...

Months before my winter escapade, a few people told me that there's nothing extraordinary about Seoul. It's just your typical first-world capital city filled with towering skyscrapers, western brands, and beauty clinics. No more, no less. So, I just kept my expectations low for this trip. Little did I know, this city offers more than what we always see on TV and on the internet.

Seoul Searching in South Korea



On our last night in Busan, I slept soundly even if my roommate claimed that our room was haunted. Ghosts and other paranormal entities were the least of my concern because I have a bigger and more sinister problem to face in the days to come - winter.

The following morning, we took a cab from our hotel to Nopo station since we still have lots of Korean Wons to burn (LOL), and from there, we rode a bus to Seoul. On our way to the station, we had a pleasant surprise. The snow was gently falling, and it was our first time to experience it! I can still vividly remember how I felt at that particular moment. The first five minutes was surreal and magical. Moments later, we hurriedly went inside the bus terminal and sought refuge from the biting cold.
