How to Enjoy One Day in Maastricht: The Essentials

I would not pretend I knew anything about Maastricht (The Netherlands). I was in Bielefeld for work and told my then-coworker, I would squeeze a weekend trip to Aachen and Cologne. And she, a local in the area, told me I should check out Maastricht too as a day trip […]

We only have three types of travel as a couple. It’s either a food trip, a weekend trip, or a road trip. To be completely honest though, most of the planning of these road trips is on my husband. He knows his home country, Germany, and its neighboring countries way […]

10 English Bookstores in Prague You Should Check Out

I have a flippant mind, but in this life, my obsessions have been quite consistent the past fifteen years or so. Books. Cats. Travel. Plants. My hobbies, as I love saying now in German, das passt nicht zusammen. They don’t fit together. Well, living in a camper van will make […]

2-Day Itinerary in Prague: What to See and Experience

Prague was the second European city that I traveled to solo. Traveling to Paris solo didn’t really count since every day I spent with friends that I hadn’t seen for so long, and while I spent some days alone in Split, Croatia, most days were spent with some marvelous girls […]

Weekend Thoughts: On Schadenfreude, Glückschmerz, and Compersion

With my German exam looming in the air and some unexpected news, I shouldn’t have time to pin yet another useless weekend thoughts on something so trivial triggered by a clickbait post seen on Facebook. It says study confirms that nobody gives a shit about your vacation pictures with a […]

The Best 19 Moalboal Beach Resorts

I think I’ve mentioned this countless of times that I love Moalboal so much that I bought a tiny piece of land somewhere between Bas Daku (White Beach) and Bas Diot (Panagsama Beach). I love it for several reasons: it’s quite close to Cebu City (my home back then), it […]

The Best 20 Beaches on Hvar Island

Personally, Hvar Island was my bet among the Croatian islands I visited. It got this Mediterranean-Adriatic vibe. I’m a sucker of overlooking the sea spots, and Hvar, especially its many beaches, has plenty of that. Hvar Island is a sun-soaked paradise with beaches that are the stuff of legends and […]

The Best Lugano Hotels You Can Choose from

As someone who grew up surrounded by waters, I found my first Switzerland experience more than a pleasant experience. My German-Swiss partner chose this destination as part of our week-long road trip that started from home (Munich) then to Jesolo, Venice, Lake Como, and then Lugano. I didn’t expect much, […]

The Best 17 Siargao Beach Resorts with a Pool 2023

Siargao Island has always been one of my favorite places not only in the Philippines but in the 20-something countries I’ve visited. Perhaps because at the very core, I consider myself an island girl, like many vagabonding locals who call this archipelagic country their home. Welcome to Siargao Island, where […]
