Finally Got My Travel Confirmation

It looks like somebody will be travelling again soon. How I really wish that I am always on the road because it is the place and  time when I see and feel myself at best.  Gone are those years when I can travel anytime and anywhere I want. Anyway  I am so grateful that inspite the full time job I am having right now, I can still  do some travels somewhere out there.

I remember my colleague telling me today that she still have 150 days before her visit to the United States of America. I  told her, that is good to know about that and I surprised her by saying  that I only have less than 60 days before my next travels.

And yes, I finally received the travel confirmation.  I would say, I am getting excited day by day that sometimes the thought every night of visiting a special place will come nearer that it makes me go to sleep so late.

I booked the plane ticket last January. I believed  the price of the ticket was already fair enough but then, when I remember the prices 12 years ago,  it seems that it is double the price already.  It does not matter most since I am really getting excited for this vacation.  I believed this will be the highlight of my travels for this year.

Lord of Travels, please always guide and protect me and all those who are traveling along the road to be safe and in good condition  in their journey.

I guess, this is all for now. I have to hit the sack before it gets too late. Take care everyone!

It Was a Fantastic Vacation!

How's things going on folks? I hope everything is fine.  So far, I am doing good and yes, I am back to work again! Sad to say,  vacation is over and I still wish I am on the other part of the globe to  explore more places.  Reality check...I need to go back to  hit the workplace again.

One co-worker  immediately asked me how  the vacation went thru? I was so excited telling her that it was indeed an awesome travel.  Honestly, I miss those years when I just travel anytime and anywhere I want. I came to a conclusion that things change from time to time  and so as our life's plans and path. It is like a wheel that goes up, side and down.  So far, I am very grateful that I can still manage most of the happenings in my life. I would say 99% of it. Thanks to my family  and friends for all the love, inspirations and motivations.

Rock-cut tombs in Myra.
It seems like yesterday when I visited Turkey and Greece. That 15-day holiday is over now. Overall that  one week round trip  in Turkey and a week cruise in Greece was all worth it. I have a lot of stories to tell about the places I visited in both  countries and I wish I have the time to share it.

It was my second visit in Turkey and I love this country. Its historic  ruins, culture, many interesting sights and especially the foods  makes me want to go back there again and again.  Among the places I visited  were Ephesus (second visit), Pergamum, Sardis, Pamukkale, Antalya, Myra, Euromos, Priene and Istanbul.

It was my first visit in Greece. I really find its islands  so amazing  especially   Santorini,  Mykonos and Rhodes. That visit to the most beautiful harbour named Symi or Simi was also fantastic.  That walk in Chios  made me sweat.  I need more time visiting Athens to climb the Acropolis but sad to say, it was holiday in the whole of Greece and the Acropolis  was closed.  That unplanned bus trip from Agios Nikolaus to Crete's capital Heraklion was quite adventurous.

I would say, if I have the chance to visit these countries again, I would surely do! Cheers and have a lovely one to everybody!

Golf Holiday in Australia

Traveling is not only for rich people, so as taking a golf holiday. I am not materially rich but I am glad that I had the opportunity to travel to over 40 countries the past years. There are still many places and countries I wish to visit and when time and money are possible, I will surely do. For now, it is time to work and save money again for future travels.


Planning to Visit Australia for a Golf Holiday

Why not? It has always been my dream to visit Australia. The idea of taking a golf holiday especially in Victoria seems to be a great idea. To give you a brief introduction about Victoria, it is the southernmost of the eastern mainland states of Australia. The state is roughly triangular in shape. New South Wales lies to the north/north-east, with the Murray River forming most of the boundary between the two states.

With 180 miles of shoreline and 14,220 surface acres of lake, it is one of Oklahoma's most scenic and active lakes. You can canoe the rapids of the Lower Mountain Fork.

Time to Go for a Cruise Vacation

If you're looking for a special way to impress the person you love, a chance to get away from the stress of your everyday life, or you simply have some vacation time at work that you need to use up, it might be time to take a vacation. While many adults shy away from vacations that don't involve visiting relatives, the truth is that sometimes it's important to get some time to yourself. Exploring a new place that you've never been can be a great way to get out of your comfort zone, meet new people, and discover the world around you. You'll create some fantastic memories and have some great adventures that you'll be talking about for years to come.

The Bays in Croatia

It seems like yesterday when I had a trip to Croatia. I just looked at the calendar the exact date when I was there. After 2 hours of sightseeing in Maribor, Slovenia, our bus drove to our hotel in Tuhelj, Croatia. We arrived at around 8:00 PM there. We did an overnight in Terme Tuhelj, a wellness center and hotel in this place of the same name. Our tour guide said that it is the largest Sauna World in Croatia. This wellness hotel offers SPAeVITA care and beauty centre where the guests can enjoy various group air whirling programmes, thermal mud, honey or salt treatments, wide range of massages and facial and body treatments.

Some of the places located along the bay in Croatia  during our road trip with the bus from  Biograd na Moru j to Dubrovnik, Croatia. last April 1 2, 2013.

During that 9-day trip in Southeast Europe, also called as the Balkan Peninsula, we were able to visit 5 countries. Included are Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia.

That was quite a tiring trip with the bus everyday but if you see places like the bays in Croatia, your tiresome will surely be compensated.

Overall, I can say that I gained a lot of unforgettable memories during that trip. The lovely places I seen  from those 5 countries will always remain in my memory. Thanks to the digital cameras we have now  where   we can always turn back the past by simply looking at the travel photos.
A lovely town we passed-by during our trip to Croatia last April 2013.
 Some of the places we visited in Croatia  were Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Biograd na Moru, Tuhelj, the National park in Krka and Rastoke in Slunj.

These are only some of the snapshots I took from Croatia. I wish to know the exact location of  these photos.  This is the reason why I ordered a camera with GPS so that I know the exact location where a certain picture is located.

Spain Trip Coming Soon

I believed this is one good way of ending the year, a trip to Spain. Two weeks ago, I finally have the confirmation for our trip after being fully paid. A week from now, me and friend will be finally spending a short holiday to one of the famous tourist destinations in Europe. I am thankful that another travel wishlist is soon to materialize.

The Alhambra in Granada, Andalucia in Spain. We will be visiting this palace and fortress during our trip. Thanks to my friend Claudia for this image.

The trip is not so expensive compared to the ones I see on travel catalogs and in the internet. I have been browsing for cheap airline tickets to Spain the past months but I always find expensive ones. The cheapest I found the past few months is around 400.00 Euros and this is only for plan ticket. With the one we booked last time, an 8-day trip cost only 608.00 Euros. Included in this price are the return plane ticket, hotels for 7 nights, 7 breakfasts, 7 dinners and the trips to the different places and cities everyday for the duration of the trip.

I need to slowly pack this week. Seven night from now, we will be flying. Thank you dear Lord for this trip. See you soon Spain.

More on itineraries and updates of the places that we will be visiting in my Euro Travel blog.

Florida Holiday- Things to Do and to See

The Fall season is getting very cold now. It simply means that winter is almost here. If you have the chance to spend a vacation, what place you want to go? If you ask me, I would love to go to Florida. You know why? It is a popular winter destination due to its warm climate. This is the reason why it is called as "The Sunshine State" in the United States.

Florida is located in the most south-eastern state in the United States of America. It is also know for its beautiful landscape, amazing them parks, gorgeous beaches and interesting cities. No wonder it became a popular winter destination not only for Americans but also from tourists all over the world.

Plan in advance your vacation in Florida. I am quite sure, you can search for affordable flights to Florida. Among the few airlines that offer cheap flights are American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. This is the advantage of our modern technology using computer and internet. You can always browse for your vacation and holidays in any time of the day at the comfort of your home.

Travellers out there, here are some tips of what to do and see when visiting the Sunshine State of Florida.

Visit Florida's Theme Parks

You can visit here the Disney World, the biggest and most renowned theme park in the world . Some of the world's best known theme parks, including Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and SeaWorld are located there. The world class water parks to see and to experience are the Sea World, Islands of Adventure and the Wet and Wild.

Disneyland in Anaheim CA during our visit last 2008. I wish to visit the theme parks in Florida in the future.

Go To The Beach

Florida is famous for its beautiful fine white beaches. Its warm weather and hundreds of miles of beaches attracts millions of visitors every year. Some of the best beaches include the West Palm Beach, Panama City Beach and Daytona Beach but I would also love to experience a day in Miami Beach.

Miami
Take a Cruise

This is one thing I would especially love to experience when I visit Florida in the future. Cruising in a luxury ship going to the Caribbean would be a fascinating experience. You can leave in the port of Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami or Canaveral.

See and Experience

You need to see the Kennedy Space Center Visitor's Complex, Space Shuttle Launch, Gatorland, the numerous Florida Lighthouses, Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Salvador Dali Museum and other interesting sights in this country.

Some outdoor activities worth to experience are diving, hiking and backpacking and fishing. Florida is also well-known for its lively night life. Regardless of preference Florida has something to offer for any kind of traveler like you and me.

The Fountain in Manila, Philippines

Can't Wait to Go Home

Good afternoon everyone! How was your weekend? Thanks God, I had a great one. I hope you too. I am starting to count the days until I will fly for vacation next week. I am quite excited to see my family, relatives and friends once again. I am also imagining now of the sunny weather and the blue sky and sea back home. I am evading the cold winter in Europe. I am thinking if we need air filters for the air condition in my room. Sometimes, it can be very hot in the Philippines especially in the summer time. I hope it is not so hot next month and the first months of 2010. I just can't wait to go home to spend Christmas, New Year and the Sinulog festival in Cebu. I am quite optimistic of my long vacation there. More updates in my other blog sites.

Must Places To Go for Winter and Enjoy Skiing


Hi everyone! I am back!! I just remember that today is Friday the 13th. For some people today is an unlucky day. For me..I can't really tell but maybe find the same also. It is unlucky day for me because I am not feeling good the whole afternoon due to migraine. It is a lucky day because we received a good news from our mailbox. 2008 Tax refund is here. Not so much money but better as nothing...probably enough for a week vacation for two. And you know what came first to my mind....dadaaannn...a winter vacation!!..It is still winter and I believed spending sometime or somewhere for a great winter vacation is still not too late. I never experience skiing in my life. It means I don't have any skiing gadgets. I know deer valley ski rentals have a lot.

I also wish that I am in Colorado or Utah right now enjoying a winter vacation. I know this will not be possible this year anymore because I was already in the US for two months last year. If I were there this time, I should be enjoying park city ski rentals with their superb ski gadgets. Sounds exciting guys..

I am not just very sure if they deliver skiing gadgets in Europe but I know for sure that Ski Butlers delivers it right to your hotel or home in places like Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, California or British Columbia. If you need great ski gadgets, beaver creek ski rentals is always a great place to go. And talking about the must places for me to go on winter include Switzerland, Austria and these States in the US that I just mentioned. I hope my husband will agree with me. have a great evening guys!! time to relax a bit..Wait a minute, got a very nice winter photo from our garden..That was from yesterday.

My Dream Car When I Retire

 Sponsored Post. All opinions are mine. Am I retiring soon? Oh well, not really! Last week, I received a letter from the Retirement Office...
