Travelling In Contrast

Road that never ends

There are days when you just want to go home and tell your story of how amazing a place is and how friendly the people are, then there are days when you just want to talk to someone that actually speaks your language. Some days you’ll think about the future of a place and what it would […]

To the Friend Who Travels Differently

Hitchhiking.jpg

Dear friend, The other night, you asked me how I travel more than you do and longer than you usually do. You always seem to ask me this same question and to be honest, it’s slowly creeping into my nerves every time you do. So now, I would like to answer this question once and […]

Yangon | Day Trip on a Budget

Shwedagon-Blue-Hour_thumb.jpg

If you’re planning to go on a trip to Myanmar, you’ll most likely be entering the country through Yangon. You can actually visit most of Yangon’s attractions in 1 day. Earlier, I did just that. The good thing about it is, it’s actually cheap! Just get your shoes(or in my case, slippers) on and just […]

Yangon | First Meal

Street food in Yangon

“My trip doesn’t start until my first meal”. This is what I realized as I’m writing this in the lobby of my hostel on 20th street in downtown Yangon, a block away from the infamous Chinatown and 19th street, Yangon’s equivalent to maybe Pub Street of Siem Reap or Khaosan Road of Bangkok…but not quite. […]

Yes, there’s cheap and delicious food in Siargao. Apart from the usual chicken barbecue, grilled fish and homemade burgers at the boulevard and the “chicken joy” in the corner of the next street, there’s actually cheap and delicious carenderia food for those of us who are travelling on a very tight budget. “Where can we […]

Hozu-Gawa River: The Long Way to Arashiyama’s Bamboo Forest

I jumped out as soon as the train stopped and the doors opened and I dashed through the turnstiles to beat every other passenger heading towards the exit. I couldn’t contain my excitement to see the famous Bamboo Forest of Arashiyama. I already imagined myself in the middle of the forest with my samurai sword […]

The Anatomy of a Capsule Bunk

When I came to Japan, sleeping in a Capsule bed was never on my “list of things to do”. Wait, what list? I didn’t even have a list. I never realized how interested people were to know how it feels to sleep in a Capsule bed until I posted a photo of my bed in […]

Moments: When Time Stands Still

Osaka Moment

It was the peak of noon, the sun was directly on top of me and I was trying to find my way back to the train station from the Osaka Castle. Right before the stairs that led down to the fountain right in the middle of the Osaka Castle Park, I passed by a little […]

Japan’s True Beauty Lies in Its Soul

Golden-Pavilion-Kyoto_thumb.jpg

As soon as I settled in on the top bunk of my 10-bed hostel room 2 nights ago, I was so eager to write about how I’ve already fallen in love with Japan just 2 hours into the trip. From the moment I stepped out of the plane, to the time I bought my Kansai […]

SONGKRAN MEMORIES

Sturmfrei(adj.) – the freedom of not being watched by a parent or superior; being alone at a place and having the ability to do what you want.   As I’m writing this, I’m green with envy for all the people who are in Chiang Mai right now. It has been 2 years since I went […]
