54 days until 2017 but here I am still stuck with the lessons from this year's adventure. Who wouldn't? Everything easily excites me before but these days I feel more relaxed and just thankful for the wander-less weekends. All I want to do is rest, binge-watch on TV series and have endless laughter and conversations… Continue reading Changes From Asia Travels
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)
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
So I actually couldn't remember the exact date that I aimed for 3030.5, but I will look for it soon because I know I have written it somewhere in my "million" blogs. Haha But it has to be somewhere before 2012, maybe it's in 2011. That time when I was having a quarter life crisis.… Continue reading I’m 30! Hurray! So How Did My 3030.5 Go?
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
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)
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!
