Stripping in Davao Airport

Most of the people I know have already stamps on their passports. Me? I have a passport with a “not-so-pretty-mug-shot-like” face and blank pages that are dying to have some out of the country ink to be dabbed over it. But well, that’s life. 🙂 Those who have gone out of the country could say that the security in airports are really tight… Maybe my experience in Davao International Airport (DIA) aka Francisco Bangoy International Airport share the same type of “tight” security.

Day 257: Cashless Departure to the Homeland

On the 6th day of this Mindanao Adventure, everybody is now experiencing overall body malaise, fatigue, and most of all, struggling in the verge of bankruptcy! Well, what can you expect from pre-planned slash unexpected plans from our itinerary and budget? It was a roller-coaster ride of positives and negatives in our budget that some of us even withdrawn from respective banks just to get back home safe. Lol. Read more →

Day 252: The Live Google Earth

Before Google Maps was even born, I was already an avid user of the Google Earth. I am not sure right now but before, this was a downloadable software that works just like the recent Google Maps but the only thing is, it functions even offline – so viewing it before was much easier without the hassle of connecting to a server.

Day 179: After a Brief Hiatus, I’m Back!

Hey there, stranger! I assume nobody is reading my blog posts anymore. LOL! 🙂 It has been a crazy joy ride the past couple of “days” – 48 to be exact! I remember it so clearly like it was just hours ago that I set aside my unfinished articles and said “I’ll publish these later.” Procrastination came hours became days, days to weeks, and now, a month and two weeks! Ok, I lied about the “Brief Hiatus” thing… But I’m not lying that I’m seriously back, though. I miss writing! 😀 Read more →

Day 121: Last Day of Being 21

Two weeks of going about life. Two weeks of doing things out of my ordinary lifestyle. For two weeks, I was able to drink an expensive sparkling water from France, I was able to play several “good notes” on my saxophone with the right embouchure, I ran my first marathon, I spent thousands in one single day (which I hope will not happen again), I finished reading a novel in two days, I cooked some Italian food, I drank a fine glass of red wine on a hot afternoon while working on some designs, and I splurged myself with great tasting Chicago deep dish pizza and Starbucks coffee.

Day 105: Advantages of Solo Female Travelers

It’s amazing how so many women nowadays are traveling solo around different areas in this planet. The number is really growing. The question now is: What are the advantages of women who travel solo?

Day 104: Workstations While on the Road

I’ve been designing for several years already and I have been to some “comfortable” and “uncomfortable” places as well. You get to see those photos of a laptop and the crystal clear blue beach background more often for those seasoned digital nomads. I think I could say that I can probably work anywhere as long as there’s a strong internet connection. And somehow, the beach is not the only workstation you can have. Read more →

Day 103: Benefits of Traveling With a Nursing Degree

A few months ago, I unluckily sprained my ankle while standing on a corner when suddenly a person was running and accidentally hit me down to the ground. It was quite unexpected, though. I was in Compostela, Cebu – very far from the nearest clinic and just a few (probably 200 meters) away from the local “sari-sari store.” Good thing they were selling ice there so I had no choice but to nurse myself at that point in time.

Day 102: Route Plotting – Mindanao

Ok, after making the Visayas Route, I made a Mindanao Route as well. Of course, I don’t know where the transportation goes in that area – I was simply guessing in the whole duration of this planning process. This is in line with the #PHL80_23 project. Check this out! Read more →

Day 100: How To Plan For A 6-Month Backpacking Trip Around The Philippines

“Planning is one thing. Doing it is another.” I am giving myself roughly 6 months and 15 days to plan for #PHL80_23. Believe me, planning is critical – else, I might end up on a sidewalk asking people “what the heck am I doing here?”  If there’s no plan, it’s like jumping off a plane without a parachute strapped on you. lol! 🙂 And no, I don’t have Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. haha! This is my longest blog post yet! tralalala… Read more →
