We were given a choice between Disneyland and Disney Sea before we left Manila, and without really giving it much thought, I chose Disney Sea in a heartbeat. I had no clue of its existence until my tour with Airlite Int’l Travel & Tours, and how Disney Sea Tokyo was the only Disney Sea anywhere in the world.
On the early morning of March 24, I woke to my alarm at 5:00. After snoozing every 5 minutes until 5:30, I peeled myself from the bed and prepared for our breakfast buffet at the hotel. I peeked out our hotel room’s window before heading downstairs and was greeted with a foggy view. The weather forecast said it would rain the whole day, with little to no chance of sun. That honestly sucked, my initial thought was, “Now all my photos will be gloomy.” but in the end, the photos turned out looking pretty good still. Big thanks to my travel buddy, David, for taking photos of me too!
Let me take you on a virtual tour of Disney Sea in photos. This isn’t even everything yet, you’ll definitely see more snippets of Disney Sea on my Japan vlog. Enjoy! :-) Continue Reading
When I travel, especially for short trips that involves the outdoors or beaches, I prefer having my things in a backpack instead of a luggage. It’s convenient, the size perfect as a carry-on baggage and I can have access to it whenever I want.
Last week I went to Cebu for 5 days and decided I would only need a backpack. One of the things I try to avoid the most when taking flights is checking-in my stuff because I hate having to wait for my baggage at the carousels, which sometimes can cause me precious time or worse anxiety over lost baggage. I find it extremely convenient to have my stuff with me the moment I disembark, and I can move along to get to my destination quicker.
Last month, Gab and I decided we’d like to start an Instagram page together, just to document our life, our travels and the other shenanigans we get into. I noticed how we never really share anything about our life together except maybe on Snapchat, but they’re just mostly selfies, or on my blog. I wanted a different outlet of just photos and short captions and so @fox.and.bear on Instagram was born. Continue Reading
Living in the Philippines means having thousands upon thousands of beaches to visit on account of the 7,107 islands that make this country. On my 26th birthday, Gab and I decided to pack up the car and drive a few hours to the town of Padre Burgos in Pagbilao, Quezon, relying only on the ever so glitchy Waze app. The trip took around 4 hours, and I fell asleep halfway through. I woke up when Gab needed help in looking for the pier in the town where we were supposed to meet with our boatman. We got lost at first, overshooting the sign “Barangay Campo Pier” which was easily missable, but the boatman was cool enough to have one of his people meet us in the town proper and lead us to the right direction.

The date is the first week of October, Gab and I finally made our way to Paris after what felt like such a long journey from the Philippines to London. We soldier on and try to break the jet lag, with me failing miserably — a little warning: I end up whining about being tired quite a few times. I promise you, that’s the first and last of it for the rest of the Eurotrip vlogs. This is the first two days of our stay in Paris. There may be 2 more vlogs in this Paris series.
I’ve always craved living an independent life. No matter how tough or nerve-wracking it seemed, ever since I could remember, I just wanted to be a grown up. The thought of going through the adventure called life excited me. I know, I sounded like a weird kid, but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one! Well, I’m here now, and although most days I question what I’m doing, there’s no doubt about how much I’m having fun. Graduating college and #adulting is one of the best experiences. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being independent, earning your own money and making your own decisions on where to spend it. I know I get some sort of thrill when I pay my bills, because it makes me feel alive. Continue Reading
