  The sweet journey continues.  After spending the night in Davao City’s very cozy Domicilio Lorenzo Apartelle, we spent the next morning visiting the Cathedral and having breakfast buffet at the Marco Polo Davao.  I got worried halfway through the buffet, knowing full well we were on our way to the beach island of Samal […]

I have just gotten back from a four-day vacation, and it was an experience I will never forget.  Up until 3 years ago, I have never succumbed to the travel bug, as I would usually just travel out of necessity, be it job-related, or for family gatherings I simply could not get out of.  When […]

After a seven-hour bus ride from Baguio to Pasay, I finally met with my college BFFs at the bus terminal and we took a cab to Terminal 4, the old MIA.  It looks ok, better than the Clark (DMIA) airport actually.  Problem is, there is not much choice in restaurants and snack bars there so […]

  The planning started out sometime in April, as soon as my bestie Manny confirmed that he is set to come home in October.  I have to admit, the wanderluster in me started the ball rolling, although at first I was suggesting a getaway closer to home, somewhere to the tune of Thunderbird Poro Point, […]

In this so-called life we experience a lot of difficulties and face too many hurdles.  Sometimes our experiences get too overwhelming that they weigh us down and take our breath away.  But we know for a fact that those challenges are necessary: they make our lives worth living, our memories more precious, and our triumphs […]

It usually takes eight to ten hours to travel from Baguio to Pagudpud.  Ours took two and a half days.  Since the kids are are-we-there-yet kind of travelers, I thought it wise to spend one night in Vigan.  It was a mistake (well, sort of…) because I think I left a piece of my heart […]

  After a one-night love affair with enchanting Vigan, we drove towards Laoag City where we would be meeting Hubby’s college friend.  Our Tres Mikaelas, who are such mallrats, got excited to see Robinson’s Laoag (after travelling from Vigan to Laoag, they were dying for cold drinks and a fully airconditioned place); unfortunately, it was […]

This wanderlust persona has been further “activated” by the summer season, much like a Ms. Hyde waiting to come out after months of toiling in work and (my kids’) school activities.  Our beloved city of Pines is not spared from scorching hot sunny weather at high noon, although we are now experiencing April showers in […]

wanderlust

  Summer brings back memories both wonderful and sad, it is what I consider a season of ironies: tempering mixed emotions and merging a fusion of sentiments.  I could not face summertime without having to think about vacations we used to spend with my Mama, and all the fun, food and festivities we have shared […]
