Crossing Borders: Backpacking with a Senior and Indochina Itinerary

I have always wanted to travel to Indochina by means of backpacking, it's cheap, there's more freedom plus it's more adventurous than getting a typical tour package from a travel agency. I have pictured doing this together with friends while carrying each of our own backpacks. But strikingly, one Piso Fare promo had me traveling with people more than twice my age!

Travelers, the Ambassadors of Peace

The Moroccan Association of Ibn Battuta is organizing a vibrant travel and cultural event entitled “Travelers, the Ambassadors of Peace” for this year's International Festival of Ibn Battuta. The event is set to happen on November 9-12, 2017 and will take place in Tangier, Morocco.

Dinagyang Festival Screams Hala Bira Iloilo!

January 24, 2014, after spending exactly a week in Cebu with Sinulog Festival being the trip's highlight, I flew next to Iloilo for yet another of Philippine's largest festivity, the Dinagyang Festival.

Seriously, I miss blogging. Sharing my travel adventures back in the Philippines (UAE-based na po ako). I was so busy being an  adult, that's why.
This trip happened 3 years ago so here's me hoping to make this post as helpful and good read as possible.

The Sinulog Grand Street Parade (Day 2)

The first day of Sinulog Festival is celebrated through the Solemn Foot Procession where devotees dance in honor of Sto. Niño. I had a fair glimpse of how many people will be going to the streets come the grand street parade set to happen the next day.
After taking our breakfast, we hurriedly strolled Osmeña street as some participants were already there. Cebu's Sinulog Grand Street Parade must probably be the country's longest parade time, it starts in the morning and ends at night! Despite the sweet smiles, I can imagine the exhaustion of the performers inside. Hats off guys! Nakak…
