This was the moment that I knew I shouldn't be making itineraries when I'm travelling with my mom.
Here in Meiji Shrine

Located in the heart of Tokyo, from all that concrete jungle, there's an oasis which is the Meiji Shrine.
It was a cold afternoon, and especially cold entering the forested place.
Meiji Shrine is dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife.

It was a long walk from the entrance to the Shrine, the path was rocky, so


 Sensoji Temple is located in Asakusa, Tokyo, it is one of the most popular tourist spots in Tokyo. Asakusa is like a backpackers area of Tokyo, there are lots of hostels and guesthouse in Asakusa.

Tokyo Skytree is the tallest structure of Japan.
It is the tallest tower of the world and second tallest structure of the world, next to Burj Khalifa.
It has the height of 2080 feet, making it the tallest structure of the world in March 2011 (thanks wikipedia)
It is located in Sumida, Tokyo.

This was our first destination upon arrival in Tokyo, Fall of 2015.
It was a very cold afternoon, colder than the usual autumn weather. It rained the day we arrived.
Tokyo Skytree is walking distance from where we were staying, the Tokyo Hutte
Originally, my plan was to spend an hour in the Skytree, but my plan was derailed, so we ended up spending our whole afternoon in the Skytree, and the night at Tokyo Salomachi.

Tokyo Skytree is very accessible, it has a station in its vicinity, the Oshiage station. If you arrived from Narita, it'll be the

Last February, we had our Convention in Naga City, Camarines Sur, it was my second time going to the Bicol province, my first one was way back 2011 for the Ad Congress which was held in the CWC. I didn't have time to conquer the province that time because I was still an OJT for the AdCong.

This time, I planned everything so that we would get to see the attractions for the limited time that we had.

This trip was quite an adventure, we only had a day to spend in the beautiful Legazpi City. So this was our itinerary.

We arrived around 8am in Legazpi City from Manila via Isarog Bus Lines. We rode the JR Extreme Isarog Bus which costs Php1100. The trip was about 11 hours. 

Honestly, we really booked a plane to Legazpi from Manila, however, we had a problem with the name of my companion, Joy, long story short, we weren't able to take the flight because of that problem (I also blame the customer service representative of Cebu Pacific who speaks fast, I wasn't able to catch up and I being the idiot that I was that time kept on agreeing on what she said, hence the flight got fucked up.). Water under the bridge, we still managed to enjoy the travel via bus, it was a new experience because that was the first time I encountered a lazy boy chair on a bus. 

The Majestic Mt. Mayon

We directly went to our Hostel, the Mayon Backpackers, see we're cheap travelers, we managed to get a bed for 350 per night per person. It was a dormitory type room. We shared a room with others who happened to be foreigners. The trike from the Bus terminal to the Hostel costs 60 pesos.

First stop:

SINCERELY, CARTER by Whitney Gracia Williams

Just like what I've posted in my goodreads profile, I LOVE BESTFRIENDS-TO-LOVERS stories! They're just GREAT! This book got me super happy and weepy, the best kind of stories, with the high dose of kilig and drama.
