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.

LEAHTRAVELS: MT. ULAP – A DREAM COME TRUE

Hey guys! Here’s another travel blog! But before anything else, I’d like to apologize in advance, because this blog will have a lot of photos!!! A LOT! πŸ˜› It’s been a dream of mine to climb Mt. Ulap for as long as I can remember! It all started the first time I went trekking in Batad, Ifugao, and saw the sea of clouds over Sagada, people were talking about how beautiful Mt. Ulap was. And since you all know how fascinated I am with the clouds, I immediately researched all about Mt. Ulap, and that started my dream! I thought that if I could climb Mt. Ulap, I’d be able to touch and taste the clouds! Yes, you read it right… TASTE! And it tasted nothing! Hahaha!

LEAHTRAVELS: MT. SAWI – A DAYHIKE WITH THE “UN-SAWI” COUPLE

It was 4:45amΒ on May 5 as we started walking towards the summit of Mt. Sawi. I was intrigued with its name, “Mt. Sawi.” The locals didn’t give a lot of information, but as the old story goes, the mountain was named after the suicide story of a girl who was heart broken. Damn! I heard a lot of stories similar to that, but she got the mountain, dude, and that was crazy! So I did my research about this mountain and saw the “Myth of Mt. Sawi”.
