Floating in the Dead Sea

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!

A Day in Florence

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.

Life Lately No. 2

Ahh. Life lately has been incredibly lazy yet very productive at the same time. Weird, I know hehe. I’ve lacked the time to draft a lot of posts, but I’m making up for lost time. Drafting two today! This post plus one about our day trip in Florence (which was a year, oops). Anyway, I have been writing a lot though outside the online world, it helps to ease my mind. Sometimes I also find myself randomly doodling or writing to help keep my thoughts at bay. It’s also been quite an eventful past few weeks for the world, a lot of tragedies, a lot innocent lives lost. Praying for their souls and their grieving families and friends, I’m sure one day we’ll all find peace.

Hello Pisa!

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.

Book Review: Break Free by Don Soriano

A few months ago I was super excited to receive this new book in the mail. I opened the package to an eye-catching yellow cover with “Break Free” written in huge black font. It read, “Don Soriano went from bankrupt with 500,000 debt to business owner and financially free in less than 3 years.” It caught my attention immediately!
