A Peek Into the Past: Ancient Greco-Roman Cities

Hello! It has been a while since I updated my blog. Truth be told, this has been sitting in my draft section for quite some time now and I figured that I should finalize it. It would have been a waste if I didn’t. Advertisements

Spend a Day in Pamukkale, Turkey

Spending a day in a place outside your country can be a little difficult especially when it’s loaded with tourist attractions and you want to visit them all. I mean, why not? It probably took some major planning and a lot of money spending to get yourself in that place and, chances are, it will take…

Viewing Cappadocia on a Hot Air Balloon

It was early at 5am when my alarm went off. It was cold and dark outside. If it wasn’t for the heater in my room, I would have shivered. I can’t really say that the heat was enough for me but it was better than nothing at all. I stood up, washed, and prepared myself for…

Wanderlust: Cappadocia, Turkey

When you have something you want to do and cross from your bucket list, you go after it. That’s what was in my head when I decided that I wanted to go to Cappadocia, Turkey in order to ride a hot air balloon and finally cross it off from my list.

Wander Around Georgia for 3 Days

Truth be told, I regret staying in Georgia for 3 days. I should have stayed for at least a week and explored more but because of circumstances, I took the chance to fly even though I knew for a fact that I’ll be unsatisfied. Three days was not enough for me! If I did stay…

Little Misadventures on My First Solo Trip

Traveling solo for the first time was both nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time. As someone who stayed at home most of the time as a child and as someone who’s used to follow people around during a trip, I feared that I wouldn’t be able to do much on my own. Honestly speaking,…

Visiting the Holy City Mtskheta, Georgia

Would you believe me if I say that I haven’t seen the inside part of a cathedral or a monastery?  I did see them in TV or in the movies but in person? No. There was a time when I passed by one, especially in the Philippines where Christianity is one of the major religions, and…

Pinto Art Museum

I’m going to be honest; sometimes, I suck at understanding art. Paintings, statues, or whatever there is in an art museum would take time in my head before it gets processed (mainly because I space out after thinking). Unless if there’s a really helpful explanation by it’s side, then I’ll understand immediately. I, however, do like looking…

A Visit to Al Fateh Grand Mosque

For someone who’s living in Bahrain for around 10 years, it’s kind of embarrassing to say that I haven’t been to Al Fateh Grand Mosque, one of the country’s top tourist destination, until recently. Honestly speaking, I wanted to visit Al Fateh Mosque for the longest time now but I just couldn’t find the right…

Traditional Arabic Breakfast at Saffron by Jena

Upon entering a small street in Muharraq, particularly at Al Qaisariya Souq, you will find a gem called Saffron by Jena. I didn’t expect to find such a restaurant inside the souq and I am so happy to discover such a place thanks to my friends who brought me there. I mean, I’ve been living…

Blooming Fire Trees

photo from Ben Vallejo If you’ve known me long enough, you’ll know that I have this weird love for trees. Okay, maybe not love. Let’s go for admiration. On the way to the cemetery where my deceased grandmother is resting, a certain tree got my interest. The cemetery is located in the province where my mom…
