Whenever I feel lost, I would always go back to this hipster place where we used to hang in the north. I and my college sisters discovered this place sometime in 2014 when we were bonding after our long exams. Nothing beats the sound of the waves while having a bottle of beer together with your college friends. Just recently, I visited the place again to unwind and get some beach tan.
Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel, La Union
Right after I stepped out of the bus, I went to grab a beer because of my long week at work.
Smirnoff Mule at Php100
Relax by the beach while drinking some Heineken at Php 120
The vibe of this place would be appreciated by people who love to chill and relax. There are a lot of foreigners who also spend their vacation here.
I live incredibly close to London. Only 25 mins away on the train so I don’t really go to London at all… apart from to work!
However last week my fellow blogger An Historian About Town came over from Canada to visit the UK and after 4 years we finally met! An Historian About Town was actually key to the beginnings of my blog! She was the first ever person to stumble upon my, what was then brand new, little blog and since then she’s helped me with its growth and allowed me to bounce many ideas off her!
So, back to our day out! AnHistorianAboutTown was desperate to visit The Queen’s House in Greenwich and she was desperate to visit Cath Kidston with me! So after meeting at London Bridge we headed out to Greenwich for a wander!
I’ve never actually been out to Greenwich before and immediately we…
Theme parks are such fantastic places to visit while travelling. With themed shows, thrill rides, fireworks and your favourite characters, they are a true modern marvel. Japan happens to be the home of some of the world’s best amusement parks, which are definitely worth checking out. Here are some tips and tricks for some of Japan’s top theme parks.
The happiest place on earth really needs no introduction. Disneyland Tokyo is the second most visited theme park in the world, with 7 themed areas- the World Bazaar, Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown.
Best known for:
All the Fastpass rides, which are very popular. Several of these rides have the word ‘Mountain’ in their names for some reason. More on the Fastpass rides later.
The Dreamlights Parade, Happiness is here parade and Happiness on high parade are definite highlights.
One of the best things about going to Battambang is getting there by boat. The boat leaves Siem Reap, travels briefly along the very dirty Siem Reap river, crosses the northern end of Tonle Sap – the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia, and then ambles along the Sangker River to Battambang.
Gliding through Tonle Sap is a glimpse into another world, where life is lived almost entirely on water. Life on the lake looks pretty good. I could live there in one of those cute floating houses – if I could bring myself to eat fish, or build a floating vegetable garden. JH and I debated floating garden designs as we travelled along.
Once we exited Tonle Sap and entered the Sangker River, people became poorer. In some places, whole families were living under a piece of…
SWITZERLAND | When I’m choosing a ski tour I always better play safe. I like to choose places that I already know a little bit, because if there is no trace in the snow, I would be lost even with my GPS. To avoid that we decided to go to the Telschehorn, which is next to the Brudelhorn.
It was freezing cold like last time and so we decided to skip the summit and skied down.
Where: Park your car next to the excellent restaurant Mühle, then walk up the forest. The surroundings after the forest are simply breathtaking.
What: Skitouring, easy, nothing above 30 degrees, even feasible with bad conditions.

We had heard about how cool Tulum was prior to the trip, but nothing really prepared us for the ancient ruins juxtaposed with the white sand beach and turquois water. We got off the colectivo from Playa del Carmen and went walked to the entrance. When you arrive at the entrance there will be lots of people trying to stop you and offer tours. You do not have to take a tour, you can pay the entrance fee and walk through the ruins on your own. We ended up going with a company that offered a boat tour and snorkeling out on the reef for around $10 per person. We first walked through the park on our own to see all the ruins you can see from the land. As you walk through this part you get incredible views of the beach and the water. The ruins are all roped off so…
