My travel wish list

I’m a stay-at-home mom for the longest time, but I still keep my wish list of the places that I still want to visit while I’m still able and fit to travel.

The places in my travel bucket list include Baguio, Benguet, Vigan, Batanes, Tagaytay, Cebu, and General Santos City.

I’ve been to Baguio, Cebu, and Tagaytay City several years ago. But those visits were related to work. I want my next visit to be for relaxation purposes.

You are going to deal with a currency you may not be too familiar with and it is also possible that you do not know how to speak their language. Do not worry though because you can still enjoy the beauty of Bali, Indonesia as long as you know some tips.

1. Get to know the places you want to visit.

If you would like to get to nusa dua bali indonesia, you have to be familiar with how you are going to get there. The capital city will give you a wide range of luxury hotels and resorts that will fit your taste. In all places that you want to visit, know how you are going to get there and what transportation you are going to ride.

2. There is a dress code in some of the hangout spots in Bali.

You may think that just because you are in Bali, you can get away with beach wear and chill outfits but on the contrary, there are some places wherein you will not be allowed to enter when you are wearing flip flops. Research about the place ahead of time to avoid the embarrassment.

3. Respect their customs.

What makes Bali a highly spiritual experience is their strong belief in religion. While you may not share the same religion, you have to learn to respect their religion and their culture. By doing this, you will begin to feel the magic of the island. You will realize why it is highly different from all the other islands that you have visited in the past.

4. There are wild and stray animals.

There are a lot of animals in Bali and while they are naturally cute, remember that being bitten can give you rabies. There are some serious diseases that you may acquire if you are not careful. Also, take good care of your things as the monkeys in Bali are known to get things that are unattended. They may even get items that you are holding.

Remember that Bali is a wonderful place that is unlike anything that you will see on Earth. Respect it and love it.

Santo Niño Shrine Museum

In 2008, hubby and his officemates were able to visit Tacloban City through the auspices of the company’s old patron. One of the places they visited was the Santo Niño Shrine in Tacloban City.

The Santo Niño Shrine used to be one of the 29 presidential rest houses of the late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos.

Santo Niño is a representation of the infant Jesus Christ. He is the patron saint of Leyte.
