A Quick Guide to Bangkok, Thailand

Unlike most people visiting Southeast Asia, Bangkok wasn’t really on my must-see list. I felt like it might be too similar to Manila. Densely populated, chaotic and has traffic that seems to go on 24/7. While I’m not fully opposed to exploring big cities such as Bangkok and Manila, I feel more at peace when I’m surrounded by nature. Which is why when I think of Thailand, my mind goes straight to Phuket or Chiang Mai. Beautiful beaches, rivers running through valleys,  ...

First Timer’s Guide to Oahu

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that Hawaii is my happy place. In fact, all I wanted for my birthday this year was a trip to Hawaii. Of course, my husband happily obliged. This makes it our third annual trip to the islands and I couldn’t be more happier! What I love the most about Oahu is that there’s a little bit of everything. Out of the three we’ve visited (Kauai and Big Island), Oahu is the only island that gives you the best of both  ...

On our recent trip to the Philippines, that is exactly what happened. I’ve seen too many photos of this stunning waterfall that it ultimately charmed its way into our itinerary. After a 2-night stay in Palawan, we excitedly booked a flight to  ...

Utah Road Trip Guide: Dead Horse Point State Park

Utah is one of my absolute favorite states to visit. I’ve probably visited more than a handful of times and I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it. No less than two months ago, my husband and I, along with two of our closest friends, went on an epic road trip to Utah. I was the (self-appointed lol) planner of this trip & like with any trip I’ve planned, I took it waaaay seriously. Naturally, I wanted to visit every National Park in Utah but I had to remind myself  ...

How to spend two perfect days in New Orleans, Part 2

After enjoying our time in the Garden District, we made a beeline for the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré. Parking was a daunting task. We had to park all the way at the end of Royal Street, which was kind of far from where all the action is. I didn’t mind it though because the charming architectural houses we saw on the way kept me busy. The houses here are simple and modest. A far cry from the grandiose houses in the Garden District. We  ...
