Jeju Island, Korea

Kisty Is Going To Jeju Island

By April 3, 2015 Sponsored

Three weeks ago, I squealed in delight when I received an invitation from Rakso Travel to join them for a Familiarization Trip to Jeju Island, South Korea. A gracious opportunity to travel? Of course, I would say yes!

If you’re into Korean Dramas, chances are you’ve heard of Jeju Island before. The island is a filming destination of various K-dramas like “Boys Over Flowers” and “Princess Hours”.

Jeju Island

But if you’re not so familiar, here’s a little background on the so-called ‘Hawaii of Korea’, Jeju (or Cheju) is an island located in the lower part of South Korea. It is also one of the nine provinces of the country. The island is a very popular holiday spot and honeymoon destination among Koreans and Japanese because of its picturesque landscapes and unique culture.

And starting this Sunday, Rakso Travel and I will be flying out to Jeju Island via a chartered flight (PAL). We’ll be staying there for four days and three nights, exploring the wonders of this mystic island and possibly get a taste of their local culture and cuisine. I did a few research of the places stated on our itinerary and I can’t help but feel a little excited because there’s a high chance Canola and Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom!

Since Korea is wi-fi heaven, I’ll be bringing live updates that are the marvelous beauty of Jeju Island via Twitter and Instagram, so stay tuned!

Thank you so much to Rakso Air Travel & Tours for the opportunity! To know more about Rakso Travel and their tour packages, you can visit their website or Facebook page.

The Perks of Traveling Together

The Perks of Traveling with Your Partner

By March 23, 2015 Life Hacks

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. But aside from that, traveling with your partner just brings so much fun, love, and happiness! Taking a vacation is great for your well-being and to your relationship with one another.

Here are some of the perks of traveling together:

1. You’ll discover their little quirks and habits.

Is he a neat-freak? Or a total slob? Does he leave the toilet seat up? Does she collect all the unused hotel toiletries in the room? You know, the little things you may have not noticed before. Traveling with them will allow you to discover and look closely at their habits, routine, and quirks. Can you tolerate and accept these habits or will it drive you mad? Continue Reading

Discover the Unfamiliar: Johannesburg, South Africa

By March 20, 2015 Travel Guides

Due to the success of my post about Australia, I thought I should do a segment of places I’d like to visit someday and places I know nothing about (like Durban in South Africa). Not only do I help a country’s tourism by promoting what they’ve got to offer, but I also get to learn something new. I also have something to look forward to when I travel to those places. And if that isn’t passionate about travel, then I don’t know what is.

So, for the second volume of the Discover the Unfamiliar, I’m going to discuss another city in South Africa — Johannesburg. I chose Johannesburg because it’s a transit point for connecting flights to Cape Town, Durban, and Kruger National Park, making it a very easy go-to destination for everyone. So, you really have no excuse not to go!
