“With the Island’s pristine landscape, exotic charm and seclusion. It’s really not hard to imagine that something strange and mythic lives there. Whatever it is, I’m pretty sure it’s a laid back and dovish one. I mean, with all the beauty around it, well how can it not be?”🙂
One spring afternoon, I was bored out of my wits and I was itching to get out of Tokyo and go somewhere without the hordes of people in a business suit hurrying their way to work. So I pulled out my map of Japan, closed my eyes and decided to go wherever my finger points at. After a few mispoints, (my first point landed in the Pacific Ocean, the second attempt landed in North Korea) I figured that my lazing around wouldn’t get me anywhere. I eventually ended up doing some proper reading and finally decided to experience the sub-tropics of Japan and visit Okinawa. Okinawa is at the tip of Japan and a plane ride away from Tokyo. Getting there is surprisingly cheap. We went during the golden week(high season) and we got our ticket for 7000 yen round trip (around 70 dollars). Our first stop was in Naha, the main hub of Okinawa and the gateway to the nearby islands of Aka-Jima, Zamami and tokashiki. We decided to stay here for a day …

Here’s a list of places that are worth looking into when you’re visiting Orlando and you’d like a quick trip beyond the city’s disney route.
Bantayan is perfect if you want to relax, slow down and not do anything. We left the Island feeling thankful that we accidentally got stuck there to see its beauty. It’s too bad though that we didn’t get to see its sunset but hopefully we will on a different time. I’m sure watching the sunset there in the summer would be awesome. 🙂
“If there’s anything surfers know how to do aside from surfing, it’s drinking and partying. Siargao has parties to go to if the nights gets too quiet for you in the Island especially on the weekends.”
It’s a surfers haven and the perfect picture of a tropical paradise with it’s warm turqouise water, endless waves and a garden of palm trees to get lost in.
Have a great week everyone!
Indonesia is an amazing country, it’s one of my favorite countries that I visited to date. I had a lot of fun in the two weeks that I spent there despite our mishaps. Here’s some of my notes about Indo. It’s not a definitive guide about the country obviously but just random notes that might be helpful to others who is planning to visit Indonesia too. Useful Info Indonesia is largely a Muslim country. Ramadan or Eid Al Fitr is a national holiday observed all over Indonesia. Make sure to have enough cash when visiting around this time because prices of all transportation hikes up and almost all banks and most establishments are close in observance of the holiday.Ramadan is celebrated around June-July Indonesians don’s speak a lot of English outside of Bali which can get a little bit frustrating sometimes, they’re also still a bit conservative and it is common to see people wearing hijabs and kufi and small prayer nooks in local establishments. Central Bali is 30 minutes away from Denspasar Airport, …
