Are you the type who mindlessly follow around your group when traveling? I am that too. I never had the need to think when traveling. I rely on my husband and just follow him around. LOL I had never traveled alone outside Cebu, moreso outside the Philippines, until I was asked to travel on business trip by the company I'm working with. This was on 2011. I was scared but gained confidence because of advices given by good friends. This post is my way of paying it forward.
Ever wondered how you'd fit all your clothes including those you recently shopped in your travel bag? That was always a problem of mine whenever I am packing my bags on the way back home. What I did before was to unload all my old clothes and have them shipped home via the Balikbayan Box instead. It was quite an inconvenience because it usually takes at most 2 months for the box to arrive. Well... It's not anymore my problem and I'm very happy. Now, I can bring everything home with me and without extra cost. :)
My most awaited 3-day vacation to LA finally came. When I arrived at LAX, I got the tightest hug from my mom. I can barely breathe but it was most welcome. I love it. How I miss my parents so badly. One time, a piece of eyelash got inside my eye. I asked my mom to blow it. She kissed it instead. My heart melted. I felt like a little girl again.
This year I had the privilege to travel to the US again for my second time. It's so much better this time because my husband had gotten his visa a year before. That means he could travel with me. Yey! :)
If you are a frequent traveler or one who loves to travel like I am, you will need handy applications to make your travels easier.
Tired of the usual malling? Try a long drive. I discovered something cool in Dumaguete... Gabby's Bistro.
This is the official campaign video of Department of Tourism for the tagline, "It's more fun in the Philippines". I had so much fun watching and laughing at how I couldn't help but agree in all text written on it.
Watch the video. Let's explore The Philippines!
