4 Items You Must Take When Backpacking

Heading off on a backpacking trip? Exciting times… but you’ll need to pack correctly if you want to make that excitement last once you arrive!

What you’re going to need when backpacking will be significantly different to what you’d take for a weekend trip. Chances are you’ll spend a lot of time walking or hiking, moving from place to place and traveling. This means that your packing needs to help you with your journey, not impede it! With this in mind, here are a few items that you will want to take along with you.


Beyond the Sunset

Dear Dad,

     Hi there! Hey, I came to visit the other day. I didn't see you. I suppose you weren't there. It was too grassy where we left you. But don't worry, someone will clean up the place soon. I hope you got what I
left for you there, a candle on the ground next to the yellow flowers. I visited next one of your favorite places in town. You remember? that area where you used to fish? where the sun meets the sky at the end of the day and where I used to sit around and watch you with your fish-net running towards the waves...I went there but didn't see you though I have to admit, the wind, the clouds, the air, the sun, the flowers...they all told me you are happy now....wherever you may be......

Important Considerations When Planning a Funeral For Your Loved Ones

It comes as a fact of life that people are born and people die. Even though we know it will happen some day, it can be a shock when it is sudden and unexpected. It can be a bit of a taboo subject, but it shouldn’t be. That is why it is a good idea to have some advice lined up for planning a funeral. It could be your own that you are planning ahead of time. It could be for that of a loved one. You will have so many emotions at the time of the loss, so it is a good idea to have a few ideas up your sleeve before hand. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself or get stressed out. It will already be a stressful and emotional situation!


Where to Stay In Baguio 001: CityLight Hotel

Welcome to A Series of Hotel Hopping in The City of Pines, Baguio

(The PANAGBENGA/Flower Festival Is All Set There Again so Finding A Great Place to Stay is a Must)

First in this Series is my stay at City Light Hotel, Come Let's Enter!

The Do's And Don'ts Of Staying In A Hotel

Most people enjoy travel and holidays, and that usually entails staying in a hotel or similar accommodation. While the do’s and don’ts of travel fashion are critical in the enjoyment of your holiday, the place in which you stay is even more so.

The summer season is fast approaching, which means that millions of people are planning their holidays. You’re probably in the middle of this process yourself! This is what to do, and what not to do, if you’ll be staying in a hotel.

Do: Make the most of your time

You’ll have a check in time and a check out time, so bear them in mind. You have paid for the room, and you have a right to use it during those specific times. So don’t leave a second before, or arrive a second late. Have a hot bath, and a shower in the morning. You’ve earned it!

Do: Shop around

Chances are, you can find a cheaper room elsewhere. If you’re staying in a big city, there will be a lot of different places for you to stay, so have a look at them. Don’t stick with your first offer. You could browse hotel deals with Hotwire, for instance, and make sure your money is well-spent. After all, holidays shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Just an arm will suffice!

Do: Request anything that would make you more comfortable

Extra soaps, more tea, hot chocolate, you name it. Of course, not every hotel will be at your beck and call, but most good ones will give you extra coffee if you ask, at the very least.
