“We are not tourists, we are travelers… I hate seeing tourists moving as a pact with their umbrellas on a sunny day… hostels are dirty and scary… I hate standing beside a smelly backpacker.” These are just some comments I heard from my past trips. Obviously, some are coming from those people who are labeling themselves as ‘travelers’ while other are from the people labeled by the travelers as ‘tourists’.

I don’t know what’s the deal with these labels but where I am seating at, its seems that a lot of people want to be tagged as a traveler as this sounds more serious…while being a tourist seems to be like a joke…Well, I definitely want to be called as a traveler.


When it comes to food, there are two things that are close to my heart, French and breakfast.

There is something about the French cuisine that seems so simple yet very sophisticated. Not too flavorful, yet not too bland and still will hit you directly to the heart.

As for breakfast, Filipinos are heavy breakfast eater. I never skipped breakfast as I feel  that this is the most important meal of the day (some new studies will disagree with this). I love smelling the aroma of freshly toasted bread and newly brewed coffee in the morning.

So, When I received an invitation to try the All Day Lazy Breakfast Promotion in Madeliene Café & Boulangerie, I didn’t even have any second thought— I said YES!

It was my first time to see numbers of beautiful tall ships and to see the Statsraad Lehmkuhl up close with its crews singing a sailor chant was really something—-I tried my best to sing-along (pretended to be in a karaoke haha). Hey Ho! Let’s Go! The Tall Ships Races 2014 Bergen

This is my first attempt for a timelapse (obviously I need to improve a lot, but watching this brings a lot of memories—specially that I got lost  w/o any map on hand in a very beautiful city, COPENHAGEN)

"Copenhagen is known for being a bike city, so I decided to try it myself—-roam around the city on a bike! I must say I really enjoyed the site, the sound and the wind! swooosh!"  #Copenhagen #Denmark

A place where history can be seen through its walls. #Berlin, Eastside Gallery.
