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…

It Was a Fantastic Vacation!

Image
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.

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 …

Golf Holiday in Australia

Image
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.

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.

The Bays in Croatia

Image
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.


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 …

Spain Trip Coming Soon

Image
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 trip…

Florida Holiday- Things to Do and to See

Image
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 brow…

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

Image
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 …
