EBC Day 2: Phakding to Namche Bazaar

By November 21, 2014 0 1

When I woke up the next day, I no longer was feeling the headache that ruined my night in Phakding. I felt so much relief knowing that it wasn't altitude mountain sickness or AMS that struck me the day before. Yipee! No one's gonna send me back home! Hello, Everest Base Camp trek Day 2. I'm so ready ...

By November 15, 2014 2 1

When an activity commences (regardless of its kind), all involve are in high spirits. But how can you maintain such energy if that activity will last for 14 days? This is Day 1 of 14 of our Everest Base Camp trek. There are two ways to reach the main jumpoff points of Mount Everest from Kathmandu. One ...

Offbeat Manda Gastro Treats

For someone who's so used to eating in fast-food restaurants and food establishments that are found in malls, there is this longing to always try and taste something new. So when I tried to look for top restaurants in Mandaluyong using the internet, I got frustrated with the results. Most them are located in, where ...

Gateway to Death?

By November 13, 2014 0 1

After I've seen this one show in History Channel titled Most Extreme Airports where Tenzing-Hillary Airport or more popularly known as Lukla Airport topped the list, I have always wondered how extreme the airport really is. Is it really a gateway to death? You'd be surprised with what I found out when I finally had the chance to land and take-off ...

By November 11, 2014 0 1

I never really was aware that Binondo is such a great place for foodies and for those who are just plain hungry until November 2011, when my new-found friends from the Pinoy Travel Bloggers community invited me to join their food tour. I wasn't able to blog about it.

When we first set foot in Batanes, we really had no idea of what we would do in the province. And since we only have eight days to accomplish everything we could, we needed to come up with some sort of itinerary. We asked around and gathered some leaflets and flyers from travel agencies near our ...

The Joys of a Home in the Sky

By October 25, 2014 0 1

"Your Home in the Sky," says the slogan of the country's flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL). Being a budget traveler and because of the extreme difference of the company's airfare against low cost carriers, I have never been on any PAL aircraft since I started flying. So I have long been wondering how does it ...

Win a Holland Winter Holiday!

By October 24, 2014 0 1

The whole reason why I was so thrilled to trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, well aside from its record of being the highest mountain in the world, was because I can finally experience snow and ice! Unfortunately, there was no snow. Just ice. I am not losing hope though as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines ...
