Happy 150th, Canada!
Over a month ago, Hans and I went to New York for vacation. And since we were already in the East Coast of the mainland US, we planned to make a quick visit to Toronto, Canada. Might as well, right?
Anyways, we were there for three days, and in these three days, although very SHORT, I got a glimpse of what Canada has to offer – Toronto in particular.
Two weeks ago, my partner and I had the privilege of travelling to the Big Apple. And let me tell you, we had a great time. And even better, we stayed under the budget. #Winning!
Of course, as always, the trip has been planned months before it even happened – six months to be exact. By planning ahead, we had a lot of time in our hands to sort out our options when it comes to our expenses – airfare, hotels, places to visit, etc., which then saved us money. Needless to say, I am already planning our trips for next year. You should give it a try, too.
Anyways, without any further adieu, these are the things that we did, and the places that we visited while in NYC:
It’s been a month actually since I got back from my trip! I had a BLAST!! Let’s walk down the memory lane, shall we?
The trip planning started around early 2016. Since 2016 was already planned for Europe (click here for Spain and click here for Italy), I decided that I should go to my other Motherland, Philippines, to have my 35th birthday, family reunion, grade school reunion, and high school reunion. I know. I’ve also squeezed in a 4-day trip to Singapore with mom to visit my cousin, whose been asking me to visit her in like forever, before I head back to Hawaii.
Travel is essential. I cannot emphasize it enough. As I’ve said in the past, traveling rejuvenates your body and soul from your everyday routine a.k.a. WORK. This is so true. I am speaking from experience. Every time I come back from vacation, I feel refreshed. If it’s at all possible, one should travel at least once a year. If I could travel more than that, I totally would.
To get you into the vacation planning mode, let me share with you my two most favorite websites where I buy cheap tickets.

So, we woke up really early (like 4am early) in Barcelona to catch our flight to Venice. Not so bad. It’s just that our taxi driver to the airport had the stinkiest breath, evaar! OMG! I swear I died. Hans was barely alive. Continue reading
