Most people travel to Napa Valley for the obvious reason, to go wine tasting. Home to over 500 wineries, Napa Valley’s perfect climate and soil makes it one of the premier places to sample some of the best wines in the world. But what happens when you’re a non-wine drinker?

Unspoiled Paradise: Coron, Palawan

After a 3-day stint in Manila, James and I couldn’t wait to leave the craziness behind and enjoy a much needed relaxation in Coron. Thankfully, it’s only an hour plane ride from the metropolis. Known for deep sea fishing and shipwreck dive spots, Coron is a beautiful town on the northern side of Palawan. Huh? Palawan?

A Muggle’s Guide to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley

When I was 9, I spent most of my afternoons curled up in my bed, firmly clutching my Harry Potter book. No one tried to get my attention because they knew they would fail miserably. I was immersed into this magical world and everything else was just secondary. Every book was re-read, every movie re-watched. I basically grew up with Harry Potter and his friends by my side. So imagine my excitement when I first set foot onto the cobblestone streets of Diagon Alley and Hogsmead. I was grinning  ...
