It is almost two months now since I returned to my second home from a holiday in Asia. I cannot deny it, I am badly missing home now. My family, friends, the escapades, the foods, the travels, window shopping, the fun….being home is always the best. I guess, I haven’t get over yet from that vacation and I am always l reminiscing it from now and then. I have to slowly accept the fact that my recent vacation is over now..so help me Lord of travels!
Interior of Ayala Mall in Cebu City, Philippines.
One of the things I miss is the window shopping that we always do especially in Ayala Mall and SM. Ayala Mall is only some minutes from the hotels we stayed. We did some overnights in Mandarin Hotel, Park Lane, Elizabeth and Quest Hotels. It was like having hotel hopping during that recent holiday. (more…)
How have you been folks? Wow, it is century now since my last update here. I am glad, I am finally backed giving you an update today. The sweet days of my escapes to Asia is finally over! I am still having nightmares until now. Sometime in the middle of the night or during dawn time, I just woke-up and the first thing that always comes to my mind was that awesome fabulous 6-week holiday I had recently in Asia especially in my home Cebu, Philippines. The worst times was during the first two weeks since I returned in Europe. Those were truly terrible nights of not having enough sleep and the feeling that you wake-up in the morning tired and exhausted. I know it was jetlag or maybe that thinking in my subconscious that I was still in Asia. I am thankful, it is getting very better now.
I finally saw my future retirement home after over 4 years of not visiting it. Living in this place will surely make me feel like being on vacation everyday. There are still a lot of things to be done, but I am glad that from time to time, I am continuing this project.
It has been a long time since my previous vacation there. After over four years of not vacationing in my home country Philippines, it did finally happened again. I am thankful to my dearest siblings from the United States of America for making it happened. (more…)
Hey peeps! I am back here. I am very sleepy now but let me share this post before I sign-off. I was browsing one of my external hard drives looking for some photos taken from the past. Those were actually the photos when we attended special events and celebrations. Whether it is a birthday party, anniversary, burial, wedding, etc., everyone needs a proper attire to wear in any of these occasions. (more…)

If you love plants and flowers, this is the perfect time to visit Keukenhof. This place is like heaven to me and it is indeed a paradise. Since I love flowers and gardening, in which I can also say, I am a gardener myself, that visit we had in Keukenhof was really a great experience for me. Simply awesome!
It was an adventure we had in in Netherlands
that time. My very courageous good friend drove from Bavaria, Germany to the different destinations there. Oh well, it was not really a direct driving because we also had a stop-over in Cologne for sightseeing. After that, we proceeded to our friend in Bochum to have an overnight. The next day, we drove to Keukenhof but had a short stop-over in Xanten, Germany to tank the car. We also visited Amsterdam and Solingen that time. Thanks to my lovely travel buddies who were with me in that trip. It was a lot of fun, indeed! (more…)
This post should be done some hours ago. Since I hooked-up again watching movie on television, it took me again too long to finish this post. Sorry for that. Hey, March is ending soon! Hello April, I am excited that you are coming in some minutes, Central European Time. I have so many things to share especially about my travels and adventures but it seems that my time is always limited. Or I would say, so many things are keeping me busy these days.
the Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi, Italy. Taken last March 22, 2014.
Let’s go back to Assisi now. After visiting the capital of Umbria which is Perugia, our next destination was Assisi. Not much time seeing all the sights in this town but I am happy to experienced the the birthplace of St. Francis. He was the founder the Franciscan religious order in the town in 1208, and St. Clare (Chiara d’Offreducci), the founder of the Poor Sisters, which later became the Order of Poor Clares after her death.
