Boracay in the New Normal: Travel Prep

Quick disclaimer: I am in no way encouraging anyone to go out right now. Whatever you do, whether it is to stay home or go out, safety should always be the number one priority. When I told someone of my plans, his first reaction was WTF, but also told me that I’m an adult and…

My Korean Visa Story

So I am finally writing about this. I previously decided not to do this anymore, but I couldn’t bring myself to finish the Siargao blog so I changed my mind and thought about writing about this instead. This is not an informational blog, I’m sure there are so many out there if you just search…

Jul 20: There’s No Place Like Home

If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you? Hmm, I love traveling, but honestly and this might be surprising, this is not a life I would want. People think I want…

CANCELLEDT.

There was another cancellation today – the Pussycat Dolls concert, supposedly happening on May 9th. A few days ago, I got a mobile and email notification for Alanis’ concert, because I forgot to remove that from my Google Calendar. And that really made me sad. So far, I’ve cancelled a trip to Korea, a weekend…
