Hello, summer. After a year of working hard, being cold, and generally feeling a little bit miserable, your reward has finally arrived. You’re about to embark on that dream vacation: whether it’s backpacking around Southeast Asia, boating around the Greek islands or boozing in Berlin.
Batanes Island is one of the most sought after travel destinations for both locals and foreign travelers. It boasts of hills of greenery, deep blue green waters, and culture too unique to let it pass. You must also remember that before visiting Batanes Island is to make sure you know where you’re going and what you will be doing in the island/s. It would also be wise to know that Batanes Island’s season is different from the rest of the country.
Batanes is one of the top travel destinations in the Philippines and one of the recommended travel spots in the country, hence this lengthy but helpful Batanes travel guide. Batanes group of islands is made of 10 islands and islets scattered on the crazy open sea waves between Philippines and Taiwan. Situated in the north, it is the country’s northernmost frontier and known for its howling winds, and home of the gentle and warm Ivatans.
There is no greater joy than visiting a new place and trying out the local cuisine. One of the only downsides to traveling though is enduring airports, and in particular airport restaurants – although there has been a significant shift in recent years. And if you’re leaving the Philippines on a long journey, there’s nothing like having a culinary treat or two waiting for you on the other side.

Motion sickness is one that even the most seasoned traveller can suffer from. It can ruin the vacation vibe, and can turn an exciting trip to an agonizing one. Vomiting, headaches, sweating, dizziness, and similar bouts caused by motion sickness can dampen, or even cancel travel plans. It can strike while you are on a long road trip, on a plane or in a cruise when you least expected. But some of us grew up or have wise up to […]
It was late when we got to the city that I scrambled a good hour or two looking for a decent internet connection. The difficulty of working freelance and online is that even when I am on the road – whether I am on a long trip or a short one for an errand like this, I still bring work around with me. I had let Josiah know that I need to work elsewhere right at the start of the […]
If there is something that you must know about me, it is that I like anything grilled (meat to be exact) and I would order it off the bat regardless of how full I am. So it was not a surprise when I did some errands at Cagayan De Oro for a few days and we (Josiah joined me) ended up at Boy Zugba for dinner. Boy Zugba is a homegrown restaurant in Cagayan De Oro City. It was introduced […]
Hello 2018! The year that was has been more than good to me. If you’re already following me in my other social media accounts, you might know what I’ve been through and where I’ve been to. It was a great year (yet) for me and I (just) know that this year would even be greater. Besides being a wanderlust, some of you know how much I love planning and documenting on paper as I do digitally. And I know that […]

I stayed at one of the hotels managed by ZEN Rooms during my previous Metro Manila trip. While finding a place to stay, the guys from ZEN Rooms sent me an email asking if they can host me in one of their hotels. To be honest I did not even know that they exist prior to their email, and do not know how they operate when I got booked with them. All I knew was they launched in 2015 in Indonesia […]

Travel has its drawbacks, and it is not as glamourous as people make its sound. You will find that it is more worth the hassle to spend a few days with your family or friends than go off to a business travel.
I spend too much time in airports than I should be. Preferring early morning or early evening flights during my domestic trips, I find myself hanging out during the hours when I am productive. Being an online freelancer, and having a cool boss who allows flexibility in my work hours – I get to bring work around with me. It may not always be the ideal vacation for some – to have work around with them when they are meant […]

Ever had a health scare while traveling, and you could not find any doctor around? My recent health scare was when I travelled to Hong Kong and my blood pressure and heart rate were above the usual which, at the that time I figured, was because of a medical condition that I have. It was difficult for me to find myself in a country that has different medical procedures for out-patients. Because of my previous experience, I was happy to bump […]

I have learned my lesson during my early years of traveling to always travel prepared – at least try to. My travel apps on my mobile phone are proofs of that. I always make room for travel booking apps to help with travel planning either for myself or for family. One of the apps I swore by is the travel booking app called Traveloka. It is a mainstay travel app on my phone and the first one I go to when checking out […]
