A Step Into the Magical World of Harry Potter

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’ve always been a Harry Potter movie fan (yes, movies only, I’m not really into books). Ever since I’ve watched the first film, I was always looking forward for the next installment. That’s why, when we went to UK last August, a visit to the Harry Potter Studio is a must. Continue reading “A Step Into the Magical World of Harry Potter”

Discover the Beauty of Scotland – Highlands and The Jacobite Steam Train (Part 1)

Scotland has always been part of my travel bucket list, that’s why when we planned our UK trip last August, I made it a point to allot at least 5 days to explore this wonderful place. We spent the first 2 days in Edinburgh city, and the next 3 days at Isle of Skye and the Highlands, which is what I am going to write on this post. After our thorough research, we ended up booking a 3 day tour with Discover Scotland Tours, since the places that we wanted to visit were far from each other, public transportation is a bit difficult when getting to places and we didn’t want to rent a car.

Game of Thrones Experience in Belfast

One of the reasons why I was very interested in taking a trip to Belfast in Northern Ireland, was because some scenes in Game of Thrones has been shot there. So, we reserved a one day tour, Belfast Iron Islands and Stormlands Adventure, from Game of Thrones Tours Ltd. The mode of transportation in Northern Ireland is quite limited, so if you are not going to rent a car nor plan to pay a lot for taxi, then it is advisable to get a tour.

A Day in Segovia

Segovia is one of the famous historic cities in Spain. I came to know this place when I tried to research on the activities to do when in Madrid; a day tour on this city showed up, and it caught my interest. Initially, I wanted to avail that day tour, which aside from Segovia I will also get to see Avila (another city), but something happened, that after a number of online booking attempts, it failed to push through. Anyway, Tep and I just decided to do the trip on our own.

Follow your Bliss at Stilts

When we had our vacation in the Philippines last month, I told my family that I wanted to go somewhere serene, relaxing and would allow me to swim a lot. After researching on a lot of beach resorts, we decided to try Stilts Calatagan Resort, which is in Batangas. Continue reading “Follow your Bliss at Stilts”

Europe Trip with Expat Explore

Last Aug 2015, Tep and I went on a Europe trip. We decided to go on a tour since we wanted to make this trip a little relaxing and hassle free. Yup, hassle free from researching and booking hotels, preparing itineraries, walking a lot, getting lost and taking trains. But don’t get me wrong, I like all these hassle activities for a trip, it’s just that we also fancied trying out these so-called tours. Continue reading “Europe Trip with Expat Explore”

Be the Change and Make your Vote Count

Today, we headed to the Philippine Embassy here in Doha to exercise our right as a Filipino, thru absentee voting. Everything went well; starting from the checking of our names on the register, handing of ballots and explaining to us how it should be filled out, the machine reading and counting our votes, and lastly the printing of the receipt which showed us the candidates we voted for. This whole process lasted for about 10 – 15 minutes, since there’s not a lot of people in there by that time. Based on some writings I’ve read, there are some issues faced by our fellow OFWs, such as receipt printed is not the same as the one they’ve chosen, there are some candidates whose names are highlighted on the ballot and other stuff. This is the reason why I observed while inside the voting room, and to my relief, none of these happened, which I am hoping will also be the case on the election day.
