Adventure Travel

I was a little worried with the idea of crossing over to Peru from Copacabana, Lake Titicaca. The media often paints South America as a place full of armed robberies and theft. My boss over at LivingtheDreamRTW.com for example had all his stuff stolen while he was in Puno, Lake Titicaca in Peru. Knowing…
They say the Bolivian Salt Flats is where Heaven and Earth meets. I can’t agree more. Going to this place is such a mind blowing experience. Normally, after seeing a famous site like one of the Seven Wonders of Nature or the World, I’m blown away and amazed but probably won’t go back to…
I was feeling happy go lucky after an amazing time in Jeju island. Little did I know what was in store for me in the coming few minutes. After finally reaching the front of the check in and baggage drop off counter, I presented them my passport. I was feeling excited to go to…
Visiting Jeju Island, South Korea is one of my most favourite part of my one year trip around the world. Declared one of the Seven Wonders of Nature in 2011, it definitely lives up to its name. The entire island both peaceful and beautiful. Also named the Hawaii of Korea, it boast beautiful beaches…
Halong Bay Vietnam is one of the Seven Wonders of Nature and should be a mind blowing experience…right? Not for me it wasn’t! When I arrived in Hanoi, my friend living there helped me arranged a tour with one of the local companies. Halong Bay is actually not located in Hanoi. But, it’s the…
Seeing Taj Mahal has always been something I’ve always wanted to do. After speaking with many travelers, they all told me it’s worth it and definitely a must see in your lifetime. Despite originally having no plans on going to India, I spontaneously decided to go to India since its fairly close by to Thailand (where I was at…
It all started in Siem Reap, I was about to board a bus on my way to Bangkok. This long bus ride will be taking us to the Thailand-Cambodian border. Once there, we will be required an exit and entrance stamp from both border offices. It was going to be a long day because not only…
Going to Sagada was one of the best adventures I have ever done during my one year trip around the world. Our adventure took us on a long 12-hour drive from Manila all the way to Sagada (one of the highest points in the Philippines). And a similarly long journey on the way back…
I wasn’t sure what to expect before seeing the famous Puerto Princesa Underground River in person. Sure it has the label “One of the Seven Wonders of Nature” but does it really live up to the hype? Formally known as the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, this is the world’s second longest underground river. I was…
Going to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea has been one of the most random turn of event during my one year around the world trip. In a previous blog post, I explained how I ended up in PNG. And, also how I ended up in a FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup. All of a…
