10 hours and a few stopovers later, we arrived in Baguio, the summer capital of the country, to experience the chilly weather that everyone’s boasting over the holidays. Since it’s been years since we last visited Baguio, we’ve decided to stick to the usual tourists spots. Continue Reading
You think you know someone, but you don’t. Not until you’ve travel or lived with them at least. Do you agree with this quote? Because I do! Traveling is a great opportunity for couples to get to know much better, create memories, and form a stronger bond.

Pursuing blogging and a life of travel at the same time is fun but also a challenging task. I think it’s nearly impossible to do both — to go to exciting new places and write your adventures immediately — if we didn’t have these applications and smartphones (Hallelujah to Steve Jobs for revolutionizing the iPhone!) to help us connect with our readers.
