Friday Nights are Grill Nights at Saffron in Amorita Resort, Bohol

We have a quick one today! I know I’ve been silent across the social media platforms lately as I’ve been out and about around Cebu. However, we’re throwing it back to Bohol today. We’ve talked about Momo Beach House’s magic and the delightful Spanish feast we had in Tomar. Tonight, we’re going grill nights at Saffron. After Tomar, we were able to roam around the resort and burn the food away. Just enough for us to be stomach-ready for a…

Wine & Dine Like El Español at Tomar Tapas x Bar in Amorita Resort, Bohol

After a magical overnight stay in Momo Beach House, we were transported to Amorita Resort in Panglao. But before I give you the 411’s of their infinity pools and a secret cove, let me briefly take you to Spain. Tomar Tapas x Bar is one of Amorita Resort’s restaurant, where you’ll feast on comida Española. Croquetas y Paella, Amores De Mi Vida We started our lunch with a variety of appetizers, from pinchos platter, to croquetas and chorizo al vino.…

Bohol’s Momo Beach House, The Paradise Less Traveled

I do not like sea travel. I, who has lived on an island for 2 decades, who would get out of the sea last and unwillingly during beach trips, get too anxious when I have to travel by sea. My inability to swim, the odd smell of boat gasoline and how I’d feel mildly claustrophobic are primary culprits. When I first said yes to my first ever blog trip out of Cebu, I was beyond ecstatic and grateful. Finally! My…

The Great Orme in Llandudno, Wales

A view of Llandudno’s The Promenade and its surrounding area. My feed is very summery right now and I thought I’d insert this gloriously sunny day we spent in North Wales. The boyfriend, his parents and I drove to Conwy and Llandudno spontaneously on a Saturday. Aside from Lourdes and London, all other weekends I had was loosely scheduled, hence, being able to just “spontaneously” go .Coming from an archipelago, I loved the fact that UK is mostly just one big island and…

Staycation in the Sky at The Mactan Newtown

Labor long weekend was fast approaching and I was itching to have a mini-vacation for fear of missing out on summer completely, yet again. I’m not big on road trips (so much anxiety build up) or ship rides (I cannot swim, for the life of me, if things go south, also, ship gasoline smells so bad, don’t you think?), we do not have trains and plane tickets are too expensive for an overnight vacation. Thankfully, millennials invented (ha!) staycations, so I thought,…

Where To Go, What To Eat in Lourdes, France

Despite having only a 40km square area and a population of around 15 000, Lourdes is the second highly-visited city in France after Paris. In fact, among French cities, only Paris has more hotel capacity. Famous for its Marian apparitions in 1858 to a village girl named Bernadette, Lourdes is also the 3rd most important site of Catholic pilgrimages following Rome and the Holy Land, respectively. Lourdes reminds me of the little French town Belle sings about, but of course, sans…
