It took me forever to start this post. I already want to sleep because I am on a 6-day shift starting today, but there is a group in Facebook where I always love reading the posts of the members who love traveling. Wanderlust is actually calling me but I cannot travel at the moment. I can’t wait for the next travels to commence next month.
Berkeley is a city on the east shore of San Francisco Bay in northern Alameda County, California. It is named after the eighteenth-century bishop and philosopher George Berkeley. It borders the cities of Oakland and Emeryville to the south and the city of Albany and unincorporated community of Kensington to the north.
Are you to travel to a foreign land soon? It could be the very heel USA or the oriental Nippon land or the very orthodox Turkey. That’s wonderful but before you reach there, you must get the solid idea on the overall ambience there, including the local culture and lifestyle. This will help you with proper packing and expectations as you embark on your voyage. You will find video programs online highlighting on the lifestyle of USA and many other foreign nations with a gist on the people, attractions, customs & traditions there. You must follow these videos closely to avoid any cultural mistakes on your foreign trip. (more…)
Hey guys! How have you been? I hope everything is great with all of you. I am happy to be backed here again! This blog already miss a lot of things n the blogosphere and I think it is time to share some updates again. If I have more time, I should be telling you a lot of travel stories here. Sad to say, time is always limited at the moment.
“The memorial displays some 65 plaques and 130 busts of persons, covering 2,000 years of history. The earliest person honored is Arminius, victor at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest (9 AD).”
The hall of fame in Bavaria, Germany known as the Walhalla.
Let me begin..It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was still foggy in the morning when we drove to Regensburg but later in the afternoon, the sun finally appeared. After taking a lunch buffet in an Asian restaurant, we decided to visit the Parthenon of Bavaria. If you happen to visit the Acropolis in Athens, for sure you know what I am talking about. In short if Athens has its Parthenon, I can say Germany has also its own version of it. This amazing architecture is called the Walhalla, which is also modeled from the Parthenon of Greece. (more…)
Hello world! I am resurrected again! I apologize for the late update here. Life is so busy right now especially that I am already working. Not really my dream job but it is better than nothing. My dream job is traveling around the world while earning a living. lolz! I am thinking when it is going to happen…maybe next year, in 5 years? hmmm…hopefully soon!
I am thankful before I started this job, I did able to spent a vacation in Southeast Asia especially in the Philippines. That dream of visiting the island of Boracay finally came into reality. That vacation in Asia was planned months and even years before it commence. Thanks to my family, relatives, siblings and friends for all the support. I had a great time visiting Philippines again.
The beautiful sunset in Boracay, Philippines during my travel to Southeast Asia this year. In 2012, Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.
It is time to visit this blog again! It seems that the author is gone for a long time. She is glad to be backed! There were so many travels that happened in the past, one of the reasons why she was not able to give you some updates. My deepest apology for that.
Let’s go and visit Europe this time. I am bringing you today to the so-called “Land of Beer and Sausages”. How would you love that. There are a lot of festivals going on in Germany especially this summer season. If you love to enjoy and fun, visiting this country is surely a must. In fact, the biggest beer festival in the world takes place in Munich, Bavaria every year.
Let us forget first Oktoberfest and visit Jura Volksfest. This is a yearly festival held in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz or Neumarkt Upper Palatinate. It takes place every summer, in the month of August. Since there are a lot of places named Neumarkt in Germany and Austria, I am especially talking here about Neumarkt, a town located in Bayern or Bavaria, Germany. Be careful when inputting it in your GPS, you might land to the wrong place. (more…)
It was only a short visit in this little but lovely and lively town of Santarcangelo di Romagna. It is a town and comune in the province of Rimini, Emilia-Romagna, Italy, on the Via Emilia. Our tour guide who was with us in the bus that time was already telling a lot of history and important facts about the places in Rimini including this town.
The beautiful fresco at the chapel where the relics of the Blessed Simone Balacchi can be found.
One of the sights we visited in Santarcangelo di Romagna was its Collegiate Church. I always love to visit churches everytime I go for sightseeing in a certain place. I heard from a friend who mentioned last time when they visited Europe, “churches and castles again”? Well, this is Europe, a continent where you can find a lot of historic sights. I know that traveling is not for all people especially if you don’t have interest in historic architecture and sights. (more…)
