Down South: The Sto. Nino Cold Springs of Camiguin

Annyeong~!! If you’ve seen my IG feed, you’d know what I’ve been up to these past few days. It’s still the tail-end of summer here in South Korea, which means except for the occasional showers, it’s hella hot. I sweat a lot, so I am feeling the heat even more. At times like these, there’s nothing I’d want more than to plunge into a cold springs, which is exactly what I am reminiscing in this post, during our visit to the Sto. Nino Cold Springs in Camiguin.

Down South: Tuasan Falls in Camiguin

Hello from Jeju! I’ve been here a couple of days now and I have to say this reaffirmed my earlier contention that Jeju-do is one of my happy places. It’s pretty much got everything I’d want to see in a vacation place and, this early, I’m declaring my intention to come back for my third round. But before that, let me talk about another place in another small island back home: the Tuasan Falls.

Down South: Walkway to the Old Volcano, Camiguin

As we speak, I’m off to another adventure several months in the making. But the good thing about travelling is how the memory always seems to be fresh, even months after it has wrapped up. Our trip to Camiguin was more than a few months ago, but I could not help but look back at every detail with fondness. Good thing we have photos, eh? It makes for better distillation of those memories, so to speak. Read more

Down South: The White Island Sandbar of Camiguin

If I’m not mistaken, the original plan for this trip was just for some time around Cagayan de Oro, or thereabouts. Somewhere along the pseudo-planning stage, it became a getaway with the island of Camiguin at the center. And quite the adventure it turned out to be! I’m telling you, if you get the chance to go on a trip (that’s more than one or two days) with good friends and kindred spirits, GO FOR IT. Read more

FoodVentures: Foodtrippin’ in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Guys, I’m… pretty sure I’ve come to the end of my Vietnam travel post series. <insert wistful sigh here> It was a relatively short trip, but I think we did a good job of packing as much as we can into those few short days, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh, without killing ourselves. And what better way to end it than with FOOD? Believe it or not, my first gastronomic encounter with Burger King was in heated Saigon.  Read more

Exploring Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam (And Why You Should Visit)

The heat was indeed ON in Saigon when we were there. Literally. It was quite a pleasant surprise to find that the City I originally only identified with the Cameron Macintosh musical actually has a lot to offer. It’s easy to get lost in images of “Platoon” and other Vietnam War movies and completely forget the fact that Ho Chi Minh is a progressive and thriving city that is definitely worth your while.
