Reasons Why You Should Re-Trek


Just last weekend, the Negros trilogy was finally complete when we experienced the leech-infested forest ascent to Tinagong Dagat.

Daily Prompt: Waiting

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 have 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.

Travel Tips: Packing For A 2-Week Trip on a Carry-On


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
