Hello everyoneeee. It’s Saturday, it’s hot, the weather’s a bit gloomy, but I’m feeling creative. For today, I have a different style of writing than what you usually see in my other posts. Changing it up, experimenting with what I enjoy writing and what people enjoying reading. Let me know what you think!
In April 2017, my family and I went to Boracay, Philippines – it was during Holy Week so the place was jam-packed! We flew with Cebu Pacific and stayed for 3 days and 2 nights at La Carmela de Boracay. It was my first time visiting and I was excited but I knew that it was going to be crowded and very much commercialized. Click the link below to read more about my adventure!
The Mount of Olives, or Mount Olivet, the starting point of our journey through the Holy City of Jerusalem, Via Dolorosa and walking the Stations of the Cross. We were up quite early that day since the best time to start your pilgrim is definitely the morning. By the afternoon, the streets in the old city are jam-packed and it’s quite hard to navigate, especially if it’s your first time here and don’t know your way around.
MASUNGI GEORESERVE BLOG | Masungi Georeserve, a silent sanctuary located in Baras, Rizal flocked by hundreds every week to become one with nature. Spanning across 1,500 hectares of land and surrounded by trees, plants and lime stones, it’s hard to believe that this place used to be underwater! My office mates and I booked this trail months in advance and we were worried it was going to rain, but thankfully the skies cleared and we had an awesome time! Sharing with you guys my experience and some tips for the trail. 🙂
WELCOMMMMMEEEE TO ISRAEL!!! After a quick 3 and a half hour flight from Rome to Israel, a various number of security checks, and a taxi ride, we finally made it to Jerusalem. It was almost dusk when we arrived at our apartment so we got settled and decided to walk around the neighborhood, look for some dinner. A lot of the shops were closed early that night because it was Sabbath day the next day but luckily we found a small grocery store that was open and also a pizza place! We headed home straight after dinner to rest up for our first touring day in Israel!
Finally arrived here in Florence! Another beautiful Italian city that I’ve always wanted to see in person. From Venice, we took a train which only took us around 2 hours. Hassle free and I loved seeing the scenery along the way. Once we arrived in Florence we met up with the owner of the apartment where we’d be staying at for two days. It was around a 15 min walk from the train station to our apartment, very convenient! If you want to see our Florence apartment, click here.
More than a year has gone by since I was in Europe and I know I should’ve written this a loooooong time ago, while the momentum was high but here we are. I’ll try to recollect my thoughts and hope that I have some sort of content for my Pisa post.
We were almost half way through our vacation and we had just arrived in Florence in the morning, travelled from Venice by train which took about 2-ish hours. We met up with the owner of the apartment we had rented out for two days (we booked through booking.com). She showed us around the apartment which was on the 4th floor (with no elevator! Woo that was a work out, the stairs were high!). It didn’t look like much from the outside but it was quite nice on the inside – you can see pictures and read more about our apartment in my other blog post here.
