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 […]

Bucas Grande: It Just Happened

When the Dusk Settles

  I was given a chance to fly to Surigao City for free. And yeah, free is almost always good in my vocabulary. Problem is, I didn’t know what to do in Surigao and I had barely 3000 pesos in my travel fund. But what the heck, there’s no way I’m gonna say “no” to […]

How Did You Fall in Love with Solo Travel?


“My alone feels so good, I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.” – Warsan Shire Not everyone is open to the idea of solo travel.

How the Straits of Malacca connected east and west as it became the center for trade ages ago because of its […]

Melaka: UNESCO World Heritage City in Under 1,000 Pesos a Day


3 weeks ago, I went on a trip to Malaysia for the 6th time. This time, I decided to go straight to Melaka, one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites. I spent 3 days and 3 nights in this “Historic City”. To be honest, I’ve always thought of Malaysia as an expensive country to travel in […]

The Sunrise and the Lighthouse


I woke up just as the sky started turning blue with that little tinge of light from nowhere. Before my eyes were completely open, I splashed whatever’s left from the bottle of water that was naturally chilled by the cool sea breeze from the night before. I had just enough light from the sky to […]

Thailand Series: 3 Weeks in Thailand for 17,000 Pesos

Laughing Gas

  That’s less than 1000 Pesos($22) a day!   When I decided to go on my Epic Summer trip to Thailand in 2013, I only had 2 things in mind – Songkran and the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan, nothing else. Like most of my trips, it’s spontaneous…sort of. But this isn’t like one […]
