I am finally back from my three week vacation!
For starters I will sum up my experience and post some Instagram pictures since I filled 40GB on my SD Card and it will take a while to find the best pictures. Also I have an exam tomorrow and next week, those need attention as well ;)
From the three countries I visited, Cambodia was my favourite part of the whole trip.
I loved to explore the many temples in Siem Reap, eat the yummy food and enjoy the sun and the humidity of the jungle.
The country is poorer than the Philippines but I felt a lot safer there and we even got back the cameras my dad forgot twice without any problem.
If you haven’t been to Siem Reap yet, you should or at least write it down on your to-do list!
We had a package tour which was great since everything was being taken care of and we had a personal driver and tourist guide.
I was actually looking forward to Seoul the most but it was so cold (-10 with wind), we could not enjoy our sight-seeing that much.
The food we ate was great though and if you need a cheap but clean and central hotel with an awesome breakfast buffed I can recommend you mine, which was Wonsville. It is located near the Myengdong shopping street and the underground station of Myengdong.
In the Philippines we had lots and lots of family reunions since we only visit every 5-6 years due to the expensive plane ticket and the long vacation one has to take. But when we do it is always lovely to see everyone again!
Lechon which is roast pig is probably the national dish here, no party would be complete without lechon!
Molly has two different eye colours and gave recently birth to a kitten which has yet to be named. It is so tiny!
Elza is a golden retriever mix with a japanese spitz and the cutest dog ever and really fluffy. So sad I could not take her here with me. I miss her already.
Over New Year we stayed in Boracay, an Island famous for its fine white sand beaches. We stayed there 6 years ago but it we did not enjoy it that much because exactly during the time we stayed there we had a taifun and only rain, which is unnatural for December but hey climate change can’t be denied any more. Also it is a lot more commercialised with a lot more people than we expected but on the one day we had good weather we enjoyed the beach in its natural state, far away from all people.
Now I have to catch up on all those interesting and fun posts I missed from you guys and study a bit :)
