Switzerland is one of the 22 countries (or I would say 23 over-all including my second home Germany) I visited last 2013. It was so far the most traveled year I had during my existence on planet earth. I am wondering if it will happen again? As of now, I had visited 6 countries and many cities especially in Asia and Europe.
St. Moritz is one of the places I experienced in Switzerland last summer 2013. During that time, we took the Bernina Express from Tirano, Italy to Pontresina, a municipality in the district of Maloja in the canton of Graubünden in Switzerland. From there, we took the bus going to St. Moritz.

Festivals all year round! These are some of the things I love in Germany. You can experience it in any seasons of the year. These so-called Volksfest or People’s Fair for example are very prevalent not only on summer season but also on spring and autumn or fall seasons. Imagine going to the world’s most famous and biggest festival, the Oktoberfest in Munich!
A beer tent in one of the Volksfest I attended in Bavaria, Germany. It is still not full when we went inside.
The one held in Stuttgart known as the Canstatter Volkfest is also a fabulous festival to visit. Although this Volksfest is not strictly speaking a beer festival, it is considered by many to be the second largest beer celebration in the world after the Munich Oktoberfest. (more…)
I was wondering if summer sale in Germany is still not over. I know the month of August is over now in some parts of the globe especially in Asia. I still have almost an hour to savour the moment here in Europe and I will finally say goodbye to my most favorite month. I am gladly welcoming the first BER month of September. How about you?

Whose coming with me this coming Oktoberfest 2014 in Munich? lolz! I am actually kidding. I don’t have any idea if I will be working during those times but I am hoping that I will have some days-off from work to experience once again this world’s greatest and largest funfair held annually in Munich, the capital city of the region of Bavaria in Germany.
View of the Theresienwiese or simply called Wiesn, the area where the yearly Oktoberfest is held. Taken during one of my visits.
Last week, I received again another private message in facebook asking me if there are still affordable accommodation in or around Munich area. Okey, this is what I am going to tell you if you are planning to visit this festival. (more…)
Summer sale is still going on in Germany and most parts of Europe. This is one of the best times of the year to shop especially for women’s apparel from clothing, shoes, accessories and more. Last month, I went shopping at the mall in Regensburg, Germany. It was indeed a perfect timing because summer sale just started.
Various flags of different nations were hanging because the FIFA Championship was going on that time. Congrats to Germany’s Football Team for winning the game.
The mall called Donau Einkaufszentrum, literally translated as Danube Shopping Center is almost an hour drive. There are a lot of stores and establishments inside. I was with friends last time and we just decided to go their spontaneously. One decided drive there, so we ended up gallivanting and window shopping at the mall. (more…)
Wherever I go, there is only one place that is best for me. It is a place where I always feel at home. Indeed the best place is home! And yes, I will be home soon! One more week of sleep and I am ready to fly high again. Flight is confirmed and luggage is almost done packing! I am very excited to be home again, so soon!
The sunset from our terrace in Cebu, Philippines. One of the priceless things I miss at home!
This will be a 6 weeks holiday. I will not be only visiting my home country but also other countries in Asia. Confirmed on the list are Singapore and Malaysia. I will be island hopping in the Philippines as well. (more…)
