Backpacking Indochina: Bangkok Leg

As happy as we are to be around our family during holidays at the end of the year, JG and I would really rather avoid all the stressful other things it brings. More importantly the long holiday allowed JG some time off work to be able to plan a long vacation, one that we especially…

The Great Spain Rundown

I have to say that I am not going to jump up and down of excitement telling you about Madrid, it was a great city, as well as the other parts of Spain that we went to. I really find it wonderful how countries like Spain are able to maintain a lot of their historical…

The Compromise That Begot Vigan

I cannot reiterate enough how mildly irritating JG kept scheduling our vacation in the Philippines with more vacations. Aside from our three major trips, and tours on the weekends, he also tried sneaking in more side trips in between the said plans. It caused some major fights mind you, ones that we had to do…

And Lastly on Berlin…

… I want to share my trip to the site of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and some final thoughts. I have always been fascinated with stories that have to do with the Holocaust, both the tragic tales and the inspiring stories of survival. One of the very first books I read…

Detour Prague:Czech

When JG sets his mind on something, there is really nothing much you can do to change his mind. So when he decided to stop by at Prague for a day, during our Berlin trip, my attempts to discourage him were futile. I was already worried about how we were going to adjust to winter…

The Famous Walk of Berlin

Now that I’ve told you about my first European winter and how it was the only thing that made the trip less than perfect, I can tell you about the parts that I really liked. Perhaps the only things I was looking forward to going to Berlin was to learn more about Germany during WWII…

Tropical Girl Does European Winter

For our second wedding anniversary, JG and I decided to go to Berlin. On one side I was not that excited about the trip because I really did not know what to expect there, but I have been having another episode of bad cabin fever, which is why I haven’t been posting any new entries…

Vacanze Romane

Since my Paris whim was already granted it is only fair that JG gets to pick our next destination. And since he’s a great big history geek, where better to go than to one of the most historical places there is, Rome. I could not possibly begin to give you a historical themed post however….

Malta Part 2

Because I did not want to be left at home, I went with JG to Malta over the weekend. He had some embassy stuff to do, whilst I came along for a short holiday. I would’ve liked to help him out but I haven’t had the first idea how. Since it’s summer season, it would’ve…

On Paris (Part 2)

The thing about having one of your long time dreams come true is that you are afraid that it might not be what you expect it to be.  I was afraid that Paris would not be at all what I pictured it to be, or that something bad might happen in exchange for this great…

On Paris (Part 1)

After six months of being cooped up in Tripoli, JG and I decided that it was time for a vacation. The last time was Malta, if you remember, and a weekend at Djerba which was okay, except it was freezing cold (a very bad time to visit). Anyway, this wasn’t just some trip, this was…
