Planning a Cruise Holiday

Some people love cruise holiday but there are others who do not enjoy the cruise because they might have suffered seasickness the whole time they were on board the ship. There are short and long cruises to fit your budget and the choice of cruise tour packages. For a first timer, you do not know what to expect when you agreed to join your friends on a whale watching cruise San Diego and you are feeling a bit nervous. If you are worried about getting seasickness, prescription for seasickness can be obtained over the counter. Whale watch cruises generally takes about three to four hours long. Make sure whatever you have with you is not easily blown away e.g. the hat or the scarf you will be wearing. Wear suitable shoes for better balancing on a boat. Remember to bring along your camera to capture your experience and a pair of Polarized sunglasses to enable you to see clearer. Once on board, there is a welcome orientation where your safety during the whale watch is …

Hotel reservation can sometimes be a pain in the back most especially when you need to book on the last minute. This happens sometimes when you need to be somewhere else and you need a hotel to stay at. The pain with instant booking? The closer you are to your desired reservation date, the more expensive it can be. Here comes this app that I use when booking discounted hotel reservations – HotelQuickly. HotelQuickly is a mobile application available for iPhone and Android devices that allows users to find discounted hotels throughout The World. The application features more than 250,000 hotels and is localized to 17 different languages including Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, traditional and simplified Chinese, and English.

Cheap right? 😎 Then followed the second time, and the third time last week. I booked a hotel on the last minute and was able to grab a cheaper …

Photo Diary: Baguio

Friday, June 23 5 AM We arrived Friday morning in the cold air of Baguio and went to our hotel to see if we can check-in earlier than schedule. Negative. Meaning we have to wait until 2 PM considering we arrived as early as 5 AM. We decided to leave our luggage in the hotel and started roaming around in the City of Pines. 8 AM: Laperal White House and Teachers Camp It was my first time to visit some of the haunted places in Baguio. I used to pass through these two places but haven’t got the chance to see them up close. As early before lunch, my friends and I decided to visit Laperal White House and Teachers Camp. These places gave me chills, tbh. 11 AM: Cafe By The Ruins Dua Before heading back to the hotel, we decided to have our lunch at Cafe by The Ruins. At first, I thought we’re heading to the original branch but we went to Dua in Upper Session Road instead. Well, I didn’t know …
