Top 5 Staycations of 2015

Amazing Bagan Resort Bagan Myanmar

No Eskwela post (I hate). Twelve cancelled classes. Staycations. More staycations. Two-month Southeast Asia backpacking. Romblon. Marinduque. Siquijor. Backlogs. #TeamRHofficial. Fat. Broke. Happy.

2015 brought about so many blessings; 114 posts, 928, 831 page views, 342 subscribed rss readers, 776 instagram followers and 424 twitter followers. It may not be as grand as others but hey, it's enough reason to celebrate. I've become active in social media in 2014, did YOLO trips in 2013 and had some crazy trips in 2012. This year, it's all about being legit #TitasofManila - Staycation that is. Check out my top 5 amazing staycations in 2015.
