Staycation - Fort Victoria

Have you ever been in one of those moods where one day, you’re cool as a daisy, and the next you’re stressed about everything and nothing at the same time? Maybe it’s because I’m experiencing quarter-life crisis, too. Since the start of the year, I’ve been planning a staycation to relax and just chill and not have to do chores. At the same time, my high school best friends and I are planning to have a summer outing. Knowing how hard it is to do an out of town trip that actually happens, I suggested we just do a staycation.

Our first night in Taiwan was eventful. Within three hours, we already have stories to tell. Here’s a quick word dump on how I remember our first night in Taiwan went.

Taiwan Visa

Last Updated: March 20, 2017

In the later months of 2016, news about being able to travel Taiwan visa free (!!!) as long as you fit certain criteria made the rounds in social media.

Cheap tickets + cherry blossoms + NO VISA? Count us in!

Since I just came back from my Taiwan trip a week ago, I decided to create this step-by-step guide on how to be exempted from applying for a tourist visa for Filipinos – but I will also share how to get a visa if you didn’t fit their exemptions criteria below.

Changing Your Money: 5 Great Tips on Getting the Best Deals

Changing-Your-Money

Going abroad is exciting. Getting your money changed into the right currency isn’t. Nevertheless, it’s essential you have the necessary spending money available in the local currency.

It’s surprisingly easy to get ripped off when changing money. Exchange rates vary depending on where you go (changing up your money at airports is never a great idea) and most banks will add fees if you use your card abroad.

Hungry Saturday at Bonifacio High Street

Bonifacio High Street

I did some changes on my blog for the past two weeks, if you haven’t noticed. The biggest one is the blog make-over. I had my blog theme changed – huge thanks to Kai! I changed my blog timeline from Lifestyle and Travel Blog to Personal and Travel Blog. I messed around with a few things here and there like my sidebar, header, footer, and about me page – but yes, some things will still be changing. What you haven’t seen is that I will also be changing a few things about my future (and even past) contents. I’m going for a more personal route now, and I’m not just gonna be talking about my major travels now. So, buckle up, friends, my future posts will be like… this one.
