Limited time for a Mambukal getaway? Get some idea how to enjoy it the way my friends and I did.
They say unplanned trips are some of the best, and this trip to Valencia was certainly enjoyable. The waterfalls was lovely, the boneless lechon was awesome, and our habal-habal drivers were nice, helpful, and accommodating.
Just like with several other restaurants, my first time at Kafé Kaspar was with my host family. It was just another rainy day with a twist, instead of eating in, everyone ate out. Even though it was my day off my au pair duties, I was invited to go with. So of course, I tagged… Continue reading The Laid-Back Yet Posh Kafé Kaspar
Security check at the Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport is fairly strict. Especially when one has a ton of electronic devices, one will be required to take those out for x-ray scanning. That is why I advise any traveler who will be going to Denmark, to pack their electronics in a single backpack or any other carry-on… Continue reading A Note about Terminal Security Checks at the Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport

It’s been two months since I arrived in the Faroe Islands. It’s been a bumpy trip to here,… Continue reading Waiting for My Flight to Faroe Islands from Copenhagen, Denmark
Here in the Philippines, the New Year is celebrated with a media noche.
2016 has been great, though it was filled with its own share of downs and double and triple downs.
Tórshavn, or Havn for short, is the capital of the Faroe Islands. It derives its name from the Norse god Thor (Tórur) and havn which means ‘haven’ or ‘harbour’. It is a fascinating city by day, but by night? It’s a dazzling sea of light. And when viewed from the top of Argir, it is simply breathtaking.
Three months now I’ve been living with a host family here in the Faroes, and I’ve adapted pretty well to the ever meteoric weather. They don’t call this place the Land of Maybe for nothing. When I first came here, it was spring–with a twist. It rained, snowed and hailed alternatively until it was summer’s… Continue reading When the Sky Opens up and It Truly Feels like Summer
