Asilah: Morocco's Artsy Seaside Resort Town


How many days are you staying here in Morocco? 
Around thirty days. 
What? Why? 

I remember how surprised a certain backpacker was upon knowing that we're going around Morocco for a month. He then told us that a friend and him will try to cover as much for seven days. Upon knowing this, me and my buddy were stunned on that tight schedule. Well, as they say, some people do have lotsa money but no time and some do have the luxury of time but do not have loads of moolah—that was us on the latter.

Rabat: Morocco's Capital City


After spending three days in Rabat, it actually saddened me to leavea total departure from our experience in Casablanca wherein we wanna leave right away after our very first day. I dunno if it's the cheap food, the not-so-threatening feel in the medina, or the friendly people but we had a nice time in the Morocco's capital city that we felt like our three-day stay wasn't enough.

Eurasian Summer Bump 2019


Our school year has ended three days ago which prompted the start of our two-month summer vacation. Once again, my teaching life will be put on hold and my explorer self will kick off. This year, it will all be different as compared to our past trips. We’re traveling to two new countries as a one-year old married couple plus, we’re in the family way! This will surely be really exciting, eh?

Muntik Na


Isang taon na naman ang lumipas. Ang bilis ng panahon. Labing-isang taon na pala ako sa pagtuturo. Kasabay ng mga pagbabago sa buhay ko bilang may asawa ay ang pinakamalaking pagsubok na hinarap ko sa aking pagtuturo; bigla ko na lang naramdaman na ayoko nang pumasok sa eskwelahan, Hunyo pa lamang nung mga panahon na ‘yun. Nasa puso ko pa ang pagtuturo pero hindi na ako natutuwa sa sistema ng kagawaran.

Morocco: Casablanca more than the Classic Hollywood Film

Casablanca Morocco Travel Guide Blog

It was not the Morocco I imagined it to be. There were hardly any colorful tiles and magical lamps that I’ve seen a number of times on travel magazines. It was our third day in Casablanca and I wasn’t even thrilled on waking up as I didn’t feel safe when we go around especially with our cameras in tow. Apparently, Casablanca that was made famous by a movie with the same title (that wasn’t even shot there) is not a usual stop for first-time travelers in the country.

Morocco: A Dream Destination that Almost Never Happened

Morocco Travel Guide Blog

I am a mediocre dreamer. My dreams would often include very attainable stuff that a go-getter person would easily realize it in no time. I don’t work really hard for it, I don’t see it as a motivation in my everyday life and I don’t like to be fixated on that thought. I just let things go by slowly and let myself be swayed on wherever life would bring me.

East Timor: Six Days of Offbeat Adventures


It was our fourth day in the capital city of East Timor. We could go to the deeper parts of the country where we’d definitely experience the local Timorese life in the outskirts of Dili but we chose not to. We remained at the sleepy city and continued our immersion to the slow-mo-like urban life of the Timorese people. Three full days is enough to explore the city and a week may be too long for some, well, not for us.
