Bacolod – Boracay: A Back to Back Birthmonth Adventure

These trips are included. https://www.instagram.com/p/BX_o-ybgK4E/ Because we were traveling together with the husband's sister who is taking a month off work from being… Continue reading Bacolod – Boracay: A Back to Back Birthmonth Adventure

And just like that, Summer 2017 has ended. It has been a busy April & May for the husband and I but majority of the activities were mine. The last weekend of May were his idea. Going with the Cebu Board Gamers on a 3-day escape to the beach was something new but I'm glad… Continue reading 3D2N of Beach & Board Games in Badian, Cebu

One Trip and Tons of Fun in Moalboal, Cebu


We were on a self-imposed hiatus since our trip from Indochina from August 20 to September 1, 2016. The wife has been struggling with a lot of things and with it the desire to pursue wanders and adventures were put on hold. But since the start of the year, she realized that she was overdoing everything and… Continue reading One Trip and Tons of Fun in Moalboal, Cebu

Backpacking IndoChina in 11 Days: What To See & Do in Cambodia


I need to remember how great our adventure was. The thought of just hopping from country to country alone was an adventure in itself especially the border crossings but the best adventure was being able to see the places that we've only seen in books or in pictures. So stay with me as I relived our 11 day adventure that started in Cambodia then Vietnam then Laos, and finally Thailand. Yay!!! You can do this too! Maybe even better than we did. 🙂

3 Days in Vang Vieng, Laos (Day 7-9/11)


The plan was to leave Vientiane at 6 AM but we found a 9:30 AM bus schedule. We welcomed the change since we've been waking very early the passing days. We woke up a little late than usual and had our breakfast at the Karenderia near Singsanti's. By 9:00 AM, we were already in front… Continue reading 3 Days in Vang Vieng, Laos (Day 7-9/11)

Indochina Backpacking Tips and Tricks


Sharing our trip at Tripzilla was good because I was able to learn a lot from the people's comments. While I find our trip just within our budget, I realized that it may have been too much for others. Our budget was 100K excluding the flight fare and accommodation (pre-paid). We spend only 8OK for 4… Continue reading Indochina Backpacking Tips and Tricks

Indochina Backpacking Itinerary + Expenses (Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand)


I wanted to do this post after I narrated the everyday adventure but the thought of knowing how poor have we become won't let me rest. Haha! I didn't even want to go out since we arrived on Thursday because of it. LOL But the husband was unusually restless. He went out on Friday and… Continue reading Indochina Backpacking Itinerary + Expenses (Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand)

A Day in Vientiane, Laos (Day 6/11)


Fresh from our all-day-all-night city and country hopping, we arrived in Vientiane early morning of our 6th day. Our AirBNB host was away on vacation so we were told to be at the place exactly at 2 PM. His maid will only be there at that time. When we get off the sleeper bus, we… Continue reading A Day in Vientiane, Laos (Day 6/11)
