Visiting Chicago’s Tourist Sites. (Video)

Saturday’s schedule was jam packed with outdoor activities that I wanted to see or do. I originally intended to spread out the activities in a span of 4 days while I was in Chicago but, since the weather was fantastic, I decided to see as much of outdoor related activities as possible. Most of them, of course, were the typical tourist sites. In daylight, I … Continue reading Visiting Chicago’s Tourist Sites. (Video)

Visiting the Sunset Sea Cliffs, San Diego. (Video)

I’ve had my share of views for sunsets and I can tell yeah that watching it from the Sunset Cliffs is a one of a kind experience. I arrived without too much expectations but, it turned out to be more than what I anticipated. My first initial thought was that I would walk along the cliffs and sightsee. Doing so allowed me to peak over … Continue reading Visiting the Sunset Sea Cliffs, San Diego. (Video)

Visiting the Skyline & the Gaslamp District, San Diego.

After checking out of my hotel, I walked around Orange Ave. street for a bit. It was near the hotel and thought it was worth exploring. I found out that they actually had quite a few shops and cafès. I took a break and got a latte at 1134 Coffee shop. Orange Ave. has a ton of stores and restaurants to see but, on this … Continue reading Visiting the Skyline & the Gaslamp District, San Diego.

Exploring Old Town Temecula. (Video)

You can’t come to Temecula without seeing Old Town. It is one of the main attraction aside from wine tasting and it is a must see in my opinion. Truthfully, I didn’t have high hopes for Temecula at first because it reminded me of a previous experience I had visiting near the area that turned out to be disappointing. However, this trip completely changed my … Continue reading Exploring Old Town Temecula. (Video)

Exploring Slab City in California

Slab City definitely lived up to its quirkiness. Many of you have probably never even heard of this city unless you’ve been to or have seen at one point the popular site called Salvation Mountain. The site is in Slab city and it basically brings in (if not) most of the visitors to the area. This trip was my 2nd time visiting the Salvation Mountain and I’m glad I came back because I apparently missed a lot from my first visit.  Continue reading “Exploring Slab City in California”

Volcano Night Tour (Hawaii, The Big Island)

My last day in Hawaii was spent doing a packaged all-day Volcano Tour. Many suggested, base on research, that the Volcano Tour was one of the Big Island’s top attraction for tourists. The tour, in a nutshell, was about getting a general idea on The Big Island that eventually leads you to a live volcanic site at night. I was at the visitor center at the time flipping through several activity brochures and I learned about the tour in one of the brochures I was looking at. The more I read about it the more my curiosity grew and next thing I knew, boom, a ticket was in my hands and I was on my way to do the tour.  Continue reading “Volcano Night Tour (Hawaii, The Big Island)”

Swimming in Coral Reefs (The Big Island – Hawaii)

I think I was a mermaid in another lifetime because I love swimming and I can stay in the water all day especially when it is clear and warm. Our boat called Fairwind Big Island Ocean Guides arrived mid-afternoon after our 1-hour ride in the ocean. We docked at Keauhou Bay a.k.a. Captain Cook’s Monument.
