Dear Amsterdam,

sorry but you’re the least favorite among my trips, so far, ‘cause you just simply remind me of some not-so-good moments…


2013 SPAINtastic Trip (2 of 3): Valencia and the La Tomatina Festival

…So we found a perfect spot in one of the corners; we were against the wall, and tall people were in front of us, which turned out to be effective shields against the flying tomatoes! :p And then we heard the sound. We saw the trucks pass by. And then there were tomatoes flying from all over the place, the rain adding to the excitement.

The fight lasted for an hour, and then all I saw was red–bloody red. I loved it, although the smell of too many mashed tomatoes was kind of awful. I love red. And then O-Tough’s battery went dead.

Four Seasons of Aloneness: A Birthday Run Away to Norway

One of my fave travel quotes says “I haven’t been EVERYWHERE, but it’s on my list”… So on my birthday, just out of randomness (and weirdness), I ran away alone and went to that “Everywhere”! :D **Ang arte lang!**

I took my love and I took it down; I climbed a mountain and I turned around… And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills; ’til the landslide brought me down… –Fleetwood Mac

An Anniversary Snapshot: The Eiffel and the Carousel


In my attempt to take a snapshot similar to that of Hannah‘s in her Paris Photo Diary (because that snapshot’s really a fave!), I ended up having this instead… <3

And oh well, today’s my 4th year of “blogging” here in Wordpress. :) So happy anniv to me then! :D <–didn’t realize it until I got a notification from Wordpress this morning haha!
