LEAHTRAVELS: PRE-BIRTHDAY TRIP TO OSAKA JAPAN (SOLO TRAVELLER ITINERARY)

Last September 29 to October 3, I travelled solo again to celebrate my birthday in Osaka. Japan has always been on my travel bucket list, but I was too afraid to go because of all the earthquake news I’d hear every time I planned to visit. This year, as I celebrate my 32nd birthday, I swallowed my fears and booked a ticket to Osaka. This trip was one of the best solo trips I’ve ever done. I literally crossed-out everything on my itinerary and it felt so fulfilling.

LEAHTRAVELS: FIRST TIME IN TAIWAN (Solo Traveller Itinerary)

Last March 24-27, I travelled to Taipei, Taiwan. Taiwan was one of the places to visit on my travel bucket list because of the beautiful scenery, structures, and of course the must try milk teas and street food! I stayed at a simple hotel in Ximen. My room was at the top floor with a beautiful view of the city, had a bathtub and was walking distance to the night market of Ximending. I booked my flight via Air Asia, my hotel from Agoda and my tours via Klook. This was the first time I travel solo again after how many years, and the first time I travelled alone outside the Philippines.

LEAHTRAVELS: Exploring Iloilo

Last February 24-27, we travelled to one of the most historical islands here in the Philippines, Iloilo. Located in the Visayas Region, Iloilo was one of the places to visit on my bucket list because I really wanted to see historical structures and architecture like churches and old houses in the Philippines. We stayed in this simple and affordable beach resort, Bearland in Tigbauan. I super loved their huge pool which connects to the bar.
