Sapporo Travel Diary 2017: Having a grand old time at Moerenuma Park

Visiting city parks in other countries always turn out to be a memorable exercise for me. It might be because I feel this constant sense of jealousy over these beautiful, well-maintained parks– something we don’t have over here in Manila.

Sapporo Travel Diary 2017: Lifting off to the Okurayama Ski Jump Viewing Lounge

I suppose the most well-known detail about the Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium is the fact that it held the 90-meter ski jump competition during Asia’s first-ever Winter Olympics in 1972.

Suncheon Bay National Garden is a gigantic conservation are housing over 505 species of trees and 113 species of flowers.

WoW Korea Winter Wonderland Day 4: Drama-rama in Suncheon (Part 1)

I feel really bad counting down the days when it means we’re inching towards the end of this trip. I feel like we’re all getting closer with each passing day and if I get another chance to go on some sort of trip with this group again, I’d do it in a heartbeat. I couldn’t …
