Now, I surrender! I was searching for photos in my external hard drive. Those photos are actually taken during my trips in Venice, Italy. It seems that I cannot find the one I wanted to post here. I am trying to find this singing Gondolier in my photo albums. Sad to say, with the thousands of photos I have in my 3GB external hard drive, I can’t find it right now. I need to organize the photo albums in this gadget when I have the time.
The famous gondolas in Venice, Italy.
I have been to Venice four times already. For some reasons, I love to keep on coming back in this city. There are a lot of reasons and one of it is very simple, I fall in love with Venice. One of the things you must experience in this floating city is to do a Gondola ride. (more…)
Having visited over 20 capital cities in Europe, I can say that Madrid is one of the most beautiful cities in the continent. My first visit there was in 2011. I did not experienced a lot during that day-visit in winter of December, so I promise myself to go back again. Indeed after three months, I set-foot on Madrid’s ground again. It was actually a long story why my come back to Madrid happened in just a span of month’s time. That 3 weeks stay was full of memorable experiences and adventures. I also met a lot of new and old friends.
A Souvenir Kiosk near the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain.
One of the things I did when I visited Spain’s capital was shopping for souvenirs. I always love collecting any forms of souvenirs from currency to postcards, fridge magnets, keychains, shirts, shotglasses, travel guides and more. (more…)
WHAT Christmas Truly Means?
It’s sharing your gifts, n0t purchasing gifts;
it’s n0t wrapping presents, it’s being present and wrapping your arms around the ones you love;
it’s n0t having the biggest and best Christmas light display,
it’s displaying the Christ light that comes from your heart;
it’s n0t Santa coming down the chimney,
it’s Jesus coming down from heaven and giving us the gift of eternal life.
and a Prosperous New Year too!
It was indeed a very memorable trip to Morocco. It is the first country I visited in Africa. I can still remember a colleague who told me that visiting Morocco is dangerous. I just ignored his warning because I have a strong belief that I will come back home safe. Thanks God, I came home safely.
I experienced many places in Morocco during that travel. Marrakesh, Agadir, Rabat, Fes, Meknes, Volubilis, Casablanca and Moulay Idriss were among it. One thing that only made me sad was when my Nikon 1 J1 malfunction. The error says “Lens Error, please contact Nikon service.” (more…)
That first visit in Spain was indeed one of the highlights in my travels last 2011. Indeed, it was the most memorable and most exciting trip I had that year. After so many years of dreaming to visit this beautiful country, I finally landed for the first time in Andalusia. Thanks to a dear friend who accompanied me in that trip, or else I won’t be able to do it alone due to the expensive extra single room charge. This is one advantage of traveling with a companion, it is quite cheaper compared to being alone.

Seville is one of the cities we visited in Andalusia. It is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville, Spain, situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir. The city contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alcázar palace complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies. (more…)
Travel excitement is over after I visited Singapore and I was a happy wanderlust when I was there. I am also happy right now because another trip will happen before the end of the year. I am glad, I got the confirmation of my vacation leave last week. With it, I was able to plan another trip accordingly. I am actually very excited after booking it because I will be traveling to another continent again. Where it is? For now, it will be a secret.
The Supertrees at the gardens by the Bay in Singapore. They are tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens’ landscape with heights that range between 25 metres (82 ft) and 50 metres (160 ft). They are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading and working as environmental engines for the gardens.
