The sun is shining in this part of the planet! This makes me feel good and it always brightens my day. How are you folks? I am doing okey but I miss traveling again. I know I just returned from my recent travels but here I go again planning for the next trip. After cancelling two trips for next month due to career change, I picked-up the phone again awhile ago and booked for a trip in Europe. I super love this beautiful continent.
The picturesque town of Perast in Montenegro. It lies beneath the hill of St. Ilija (873 m), on a cape that separates the Bay of Risano from that of Kotor, and overlooks the Verige strait, the narrowest part of the Bay of Kotor.
Let me finish this post before going to work. I have to accept the truth that I fall in love with Montenegro the first time I stepped on it. When I visited it for the first time back in 2013, I told myself that I wanted to go back there again. It did materialized during my recent round trip in the Balkans last month. (more…)
Hello September! Hello folks! What’s up? I hope you are having a wonderful time during this month. I am doing good so far and I do not want to complain about life as it is still beautiful inspite of many trials and hardships. There are more things to be thankful of than things to complain. One of it is the blessing to wake-up everyday. More on that, there are a lot of things to deviate ourselves to make us happy and one of it is the Oktoberfest that is going on right now in Munich, Bavaria’s capital city in Germany.

Through this fair, you can taste local delicacies, the best beers in Germany, experience carnival rides, fun and entertainments are waiting for you especially the live bands that perform in every beer tents.

Hey folks! How things going on out there? I hope everything is fine and under control. I can’t complain at the moment as the things are doing good for me and I am thankful about it. I just wish that I am somewhere out there, exploring places.
The pool deck at the cruise ship.
Back to the cruise trip I did last spring time. I can say, it was a wonderful cruise and I experienced a lot of islands and places in Greece including Turkey. I also met new friends and two of them are from my home country who are currently living in Germany. (more…)
It was the third day of sightseeing in Turkey. We stayed in a nice hotel in Ayvalik and from there, the bus will start rolling going to our next destination which is Sardis. That morning, I set the alarm at 5:30 and even set it two times to make it sure that I will wake up at the right time. I need to be ready before before going for breakfast which starts at 6:00. At around 7:30, the bus already started its journey.
The Altar outside the entrance of Artemis much older than the temple, from as early as the 6th century BC. In the Hellenistic period the altar was incorporated into a large stepped platform that still exists.
The sky was gray and cloudy when we left Ayvalik. After an hour driving on the road, the sun was slowly shining. This is the advantage of going in a group tour, everything is already organized and you don’t need to worry about accommodation, meals and transportation. (more…)
Summer time is almost here! I am so glad that the weather is getting friendlier the past days. No more sub-zero temperature in our area and most of the times, I can already wear t’shirts outside whether I go for walk or do some gardening. I simply love spring and summer too!
Participants and musicians during the parade at the Samba Festival in Coburg during our visit last year.
Summer time also means festival time especially in Germany. If you happen to witness the Samba festival in Coburg, you will surely have fun. This Bavarian city is referred to as “Europe’s Capital of Samba.” In 2014, the Festival was pleased to be awarded the title “Best Samba event outside Brazil”, from the Edison Carneiro Prize. (more…)
Happy Easter! I hope you did had a wonderful and peaceful celebration of this season. As for me, it is quite okey. I visited some families during the weekend and last night, I was also invited for a dinner. I did not know that it was my friend’s husband’s birthday. It was quite a lovely evening seeing friends again. The weather was not really friendly because we are having a four-seasons weather since last week until today. Bu then, everything is fine!
I love these live performers in our hotel in Lisdoonvarna, Ireland. They are quite in the age but still, they performed great Irish folks songs that night. Cool performance indeed!
Let me share a bit about my travel in Ireland last 2013. One of the places we visited was in Lisdoonvarna. It is
a spa town in County Clare in Ireland. The town is famous for its music and festivals. One of its famous festivals is the so-called “Matchmaking festival” held every September. I visited the place in winter 2013, so sorry for me, I have not witness this celebration. (more…)
