In a country of coconuts as tropical as the Philippines, winter is something one would like to experience at least once in his or her lifetime. So here I am, someone whose mood is affected by the weather and someone who has always donned a jacket in an airconditioned room; about to experience the first winter of her lifetime.
Indochina: Crossing bordersThe World, Wanders
Our Indochina trip is the first international trip that most of our friends have (and that includes me by the way). One of our friends acted as the main organizer of the trip while most of us helped out in confirming our accommodations, places to visit and food to try (I volunteered for the food).
Thailand: Three more days pleaseThe World, Wanders
We got soaked after alighting the bus in Bangkok from a ten-hour drive from Siem Reap. At the bus stop we waited until the rain stopped, we were entertained by the bus ticket in-charge.
Cambodia: More than Angkor WatThe World, Wanders
Cambodia. Temples. Angkor Wat.
Guilty here! Honestly I did not make enough research before embarking on this journey. Cambodia has more than just temples to offer.
Vietnam: Pho first before anything elseThe World, Wanders
Touchdown Vietnam specifically Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
Coming from sunny Cebu, we were kinda bummed about the weather – rain and gusts of wind. Nonetheless our spirits were starting to lift up when we travel from the airport to our hostel and saw the roads filled with motorcycles and motorcycles. Truly Vietnam!
