mySpot | Unplanned trip to Legazpi City, Albay

Cagsawa Ruins (during cloudy day)Daraga Church, Daraga Albay
 I've always wanted to see Mayon Volcano as close as possible and get a post-card photo myself, but I didn't think I'd see it sooner than expected.

Two weeks ago, I received an invitation from a friend to go on a trip to Legazpi, Albay and see the whalesharks in Donsol. Without hesitation (but just a few questions) I said Yes!
However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I ended up traveling solo for four days in Legazpi. Haha!
I stayed in Mayon Backpacker's Hostel in Legazpi which saved me a lot of money...

mySpot | A Walk to Remember in Paris, France

Arc de Triomphe de l'√Čtoile
Eiffel Tower
Venus de Milo
This year is definitely a year not to forget. Being able to travel to different places with different people really amazes me. Finally, another item on my bucket list has been crossed out. Paris!

Before going back home after a trip in Germany, sure I wouldn't miss this majestic place I always see on the movies and on pictures. It's time to see them with my own eyes. And truly the wonders of these things are hard to forget.

mySpot | One Day in Rome - Trip to Italy :)

First trip to Europe! Hopefully not the last... It was one awesome adventure in Rome where I saw all the things I only see in books and from the Internet.

Went to visit the Vatican and I event saw the Pope. Walked all day within the city to see all amazing places... Also had a great meal on of the restaurants there... My one day trip to Rome (actually overnight stay) is the best so far :)

Some funny experience I've got is my first time to ride the RyanAir from Nurnberg to Pisa. It was my first time to experience a plane ride where you don't make seat reservation but you get to choose where to seen once you are boarding the plane! How's that! hahaha

One great experience. Check out my fb profile for more pics :)

mySpot | Seoul, South Korea Trip 2013

Studying Korean Language wouldn't be complete if I will not test myself to go Seoul. I'm not an expert though but still I learned the basics. After watching endless Korean-Novelas (TV Series) and listening to songs, I decided that I wanted the real thing. 

Though I'm not a big fanatic of KPop unlike my other friends, it's just it is one of the places I wanted to visit on my bucket list. 

Traveling alone has been my challenge to myself and so far I am enjoying it. It's my second time to visit another country alone and it was really difficult because of the language difference but it was fun.

mySpot | Davao - Surigao del Sur Trip 2013

La Entrada Beach Resort, San Agustin, Surigao del Sur
If there's one thing I learned on this recent trip that I had with a few friends, it's that your itineraries should be flexible and interchangeable if possible.

Me and my friends went to Davao and Surigao del Sur to check out some jaw-dropping spots in Davao and Surigao del Sur. Also, it was my first couchsurfing experience.

We (they) already had planned our activities ahead of time, though I arrived earlier to spend a few days in Davao City (that explains Day -1 and Day 0 on the itinerary). Unfortunately we missed our bus and suddenly everything changed (except the destinations)...

Good thing we have a GPS-enabled phones, a few contacts on some places, and just enough pocket money to move from one place to another. It was pretty hard at first but the experience and the adventure was priceless.
