You know what’s better than visiting one place for the first time? Revisiting it. You get a new perspective, and an affirmation on the first impression that you had when you first laid eyes on it. So it was with no regrets that I visited Gwanghamun Square for the second time.
Finally getting around to writing up posts on the trip I made to Seoul last November with my buddy Lorie, and I’m starting things out slow and relaxed, and nothing could be more relaxing than a stream, right? I certainly had a bit of that vibe when we took a quick peek at Cheonggyecheon right before we headed towards Gyeongbukgong Palace.
This is not, in any way, an “official” write-up on how to get a Tourist Visa for South Korea. It’s just me relaying my experience (since we all know that Filipinos generally don’t have the easiest time when it comes to getting these types of documents). Basically, I looked into this issue online, reading lots of helpful blogs and browsing through forums and, of course, referring to the official website of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Republic of the Philippines.

I thought it only fitting that I write something about the Adivay, which is the celebration of the anniversary of the province of Benguet. Every November, she turns a year older, and Adivay is “hotter” than ever.
Its the year of the Monkey, so are y’all ready to go ape?! Happy New Year, all~ How’d you ring in 2016? Mine was… uneventful, which means restful… which is a good thing, because if there’s one thing I would like to happen in the coming year, it is for me to have plenty of rest in between adventures. *crosses fingers* The last post I did was Part 2 of this Travel Challenge, and it also happened to be the 200th post I’ve made in this blog. Wow. 200. I hope I’ll be able to do 200 more. 🙂 Travel gods and fairies, be nice to me~
That one time in the year where we are allowed to be contemplative is here again: the coming of the New Year. For those who are still into making New Year resolutions, I say, “good for you”. For those who, like me, have stopped, and just relied on hoping for the best (haha!), I say, “yaaay for us!” But no, really, if you’re going to make plans for change, this is the best time for it. For me, personally, though, I’m just glad to be able to look forward to 2016. And continuing this series of posts on the Tacadang Travel Challenge.
Christmas Day has passed, everyone! How did you spend it? I hope you had a good and meaningful Christmas, with the people who matter. I had a restful one, thank you for asking, and with the family, too, so all’s well! And it looks like this blog, too, had a bit of a rest period. And before the year is over, imma shake it up a bit! This time, with a series of posts about my last major climb/trek for 2015, in Tacadang, Kibungan.
