Saved the best for last! Los Angeles a.k.a. City of Angels is the last leg of my American trip and what better way to end it? A tour in Universal Studios’ Hollywood specifically in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. *squeals* If you don’t know yet, I’m a huge Potterhead!
San Francisco is one of the places who captured my heart in a snap! From iconic attractions, architecture and many more! If you know me personally, then you know how much I talk about how I love the said city. It’s one of the places I would settle down if I have the chance to. For me, San Fran is the best of both worlds – A city where you can party all night but can chill all day. Basically, its my kind of city! My second peg is New York but the big apple can be a bit overwhelming for me in some way. Besides, I need my one hour drive to the beach once in a while. I guess it’s safe to say San Fran is on top of my list right now. Staying there for a week, I had some time to roam around the city and of course, as a first time visitor in the city, I had to check out all the tourist-y places! Here are my 5 places to Visit when you’re in San Francisco.
Touchdown San Francisco! My trip to the US is one year near and I haven’t completely blogged about it – at least i’m halfway there. Lol! That’s something good you can look at. So, after my 3 day stay in Washington, we headed straight to San Francisco to visit relatives for a week. First on our agenda? Napa Valley. A trip in SoFo isn’t complete without drinking/tasting wine and cheese in the said place. There are tons of places you can pick where to dine and experience the wines from Napa but we chose V.

Now, Picture this, perfect view of vineyard, sunset, Moscato and cold cuts by your side. Ugh! Living the life!
Broken things are beautiful too. Come to think of it, one of the visually pleasing things are ruins – they stand through time and still manage to look breathtaking. Last February, for work, I managed to capture several photos in The Ruins at Talisay Negros Occidental and admired the mansion for hours – including its glorious sunset. I mean, how can something so broken managed to look so beautiful? Then it hit me for a split second, just like the ruins, we must be partly damaged in order of us to stand strong.
One of the things I have always loved about travelling is knowing how rich the culture of a certain place is. December of last year, the tourism of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato invited over Bloggers and Media to have a few days stay in the said place. The farthest I’ve been to South Cotabato is I think the time I trekked my heart out to Lake Holon. I’ve always been curious about the other side of South Cotabato; the side where there is culture, the side where there are stories to tell, the side where there are local T’bolis who preserved their ancestral homes and the side where the land of dreamweavers live.
