Sagada's Wine Refilling Station / Where The-? Travels

Sagada’s Wine Refilling Station Warms the Body (and Soul)

Philippines: LUZON

Beyond Sagada’s magnificent landscape, epic peaks and troughs, winding roads, adventure scene, creamsicle sunrises, and pet-friendly community hides a tiny stall selling locally crafted wine aged in clay jars. Sagada’s Wine Refilling Station is a fun quirk to return to, definitely.

Canto Bogchi Joint, Baguio

BAGUIO Food Crawl: Canto’s Famous Ribs Got Us to Stop Bickering + Burnham Park’s Random Shawarma Stall was Lame

Philippines: LUZON

Baguio’s one of the best spots to go on a food crawl. In fact, I filled up our itinerary with only two things: restaurants and markets. That’s about it.

Canto Bogchi Joint was our first order of business upon arriving in the City of Pines.

HANOI, VIETNAM: Lost In Translation On the Very First Night


It was half past midnight when we arrived in Vietnam’s capital. A vibrant city of blinding lights, lush parks, French colonial buildings, and masses of fast-moving Vespas.

SURIGAO DEL SUR: Bleeding Mountains and Mining Towns

Philippines: MINDANAO


On our first Caraga Region road trip, we began by boarding a hot bus to take us from Surigao City to Lanuza, Surigao del Sur. We had an idea of what kind of ride we were in for but our expectations were blown out the dusty window the further south we got.

Matinloc Island, El Nido, Palawan / Where The Travels

EL NIDO, PALAWAN: Tales from the Creepy and Beautiful Island of Matinloc

Philippines: LUZON


Did I say creepy? It’s a juxtaposition of sorts. Imagine a secret island with nothing but abandoned ruins. Elegant yet enigmatic with a religious shrine greeting you not far from shore. Tourist-filled afternoons are fine but what could be lurking about come nightfall?
