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
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)
Before continuing the story of our Indochina adventure in Vang Vieng, Laos - our longest city stop, let us reminisce the adventure with our everyday updates. Instagram updates were done by the wife (me) and super amazed that the husband voluntarily joined the fun by posting in his Facebook page. Hurray! I have Pokemon Go… Continue reading 13D12N of Adventure – an Instagram and Facebook Recap
Yip. You read it right. It was a van, not a bus. And we were quite surprised as well. But they speak no English, how else would we know what’s going on. The husband kept asking if the van would take us all the way to Vientiane. I had no idea. The husband asked if I still have the ticket. The ticket was collected by the tuktuk driver. Whoah. We had no proof. I bet the husband was ultra-worried at that point because I was. But I kept my cool and the belief that we are favored. God is with us so who could be against us?
She kicked my ass. Hahaha! But what I love most about our little time in Saigon is the people we've known. After the tour, we had our late lunch in Subway. While waiting for our order, the husband remembered a familiar face. I wasted no time and talked to him. 🙂 The husband did too. Just awesome.
Packing can be a no-brainer but NOT to us. It's one of our main struggles. Last time in Hong Kong & Macau, the husband exceeded the carry-on limit so we tied the sleeping bags to my bag. We were only traveling for 5 days then. From that travel, I realized that not having a check-in… Continue reading Travel Tips: Packing For A 2-Week Trip on a Carry-On
Feeling artsy today so instead of putting it into words, I thought of making an info graphic. I'm rather pumped up with the detailed excel planning sheet too but will share it after the trip. 🙂 Here's what's inside our planning board: Plotted - You can see the sked in calendar type. Aug20_Aug24_CamVie - Detailed… Continue reading 11 Days, 6 Cities, 4 Countries – The Wanderfull Life in IndoChina
One more Friday and the next is the start of another adventure - leaving for our 10+ days of trip for IndoChina on the day of my 30th birthday. In 2011, while suffering from a quarter-life crisis and was utterly envious of peers getting engaged and having a baby, I created a dream - 3030dot5.… Continue reading 14 Days To Go Before The Wander Full Life in IndoChina!
25 days to go before IndoChina! Wew! I'm feeling the pressure of both excitement and fear. We just had our 1st International trip in Hongkong and Macau last March but this would be our longest travel EVER. Just thinking of what to pack inside a carry in luggage is crazy. I might have underestimated it… Continue reading The Wanderfull Life in IndoChina Soon!
As summarized here, it has been quite a while since our last touristy trip outside of Cebu. 2015 was mostly spent on trekking. Last 2014, we had a grand time motorbiking Siquijor on our 6th anniversary. After that, we went on a hiatus. We were supposed to resume travels after the wedding but we were… Continue reading Travels in 2016
