Dresden for a Day

Several blogs helped me narrow the choices down to Spreewald, Leipzig, Hamburg, Saxon Switzerland, and Dresden. All of them looked gorgeous in the springtime, thanks to all the featured photos; none of them advertised winter. What made me decide Dresden over Hamburg and the rest were 1. it was the shortest distance by bus, 2. its compact downtown area is completely accessible by walking, and 3. it had the best (warmest and driest) weather forecast for the day.

I went to Camiguin and Ilocos Norte in a span of two weeks, and I was exhausted but so, so content.

This little bridge led me straight to the water 👌 . . . . . . . . . . . #sunset #ocean #water #explore #camiguin #mindanao #philippines #tourism #nature […]

The Catch-Up Storybook: Half a Year

Since the last one was written at a sad time for me, some of you might’ve wondered if I had given this up altogether; but no, I’m still here. Just taking it one day at a time. Let’s see, I was sick for half of August, but still managed a trip to my favorite island, Coron.  View this post on Instagram A little bit of rain created this misty backdrop of #mountain silhouettes. This isn't luck, it's Grace. #HikingHuwebes #mabuhaykers #BikiniHikers #philippines #travel […]
