Inside Catedral de Sevilla – The World’s Largest Gothic Cathedral

Catedral de Sevilla boggles the mind. Not only it’s incredibly huge but also unbelievably magnificent inside! It’s the most stunning cathedral I’ve ever been to, so far. From the dome ceilings to the columns and to the marble floors, everything is just amazingly stunning. I honestly had goosebumps as soon as I got in and […]

The Light and Show at the Pyramids.

Light and Sound Show at the Pyramids

I watched the Light and Sound Show at the Pyramids from the rooftop of my guest house. It’s free, of course. But, if you’re staying somewhere with no view of the Pyramids, then, you’ve got to shell out $10 to see it at night. Related: Spectacular Sunset at the Pyramids Travel Tip:  Instead of paying […]

I’m supposed to post these photos of Al Diwan at Madain Saleh but I got so busy at work and all the research I had to do on my trip to Bahrain and UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain). Now, that I’m back, I just realized that there are still two posts I have […]

Qasr Al Saneh – A Nabatean Architectural Wonder

PHOTOS: Grand Canyon Sunrise is Magic

I woke up at 4:15 in the morning. Yes, that early! I left my camp site at 4:35. The first shuttle bus was at 4:30 and I reckoned it’s gonna pass by Mather Campground at 4:45. It turned out, my guess was right. 😜 I was told that there’s no such thing as the best […]

Getting Lost in the Labyrinth In Camaguey

Getting Lost in the Labyrinth In Camaguey

Getting lost in this old colonial city, however, offers a curious visitor some old gems that are new to his senses. […]

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China

Sunrise at the Great Wall of China is one view that would forever be etched in my memory. The serenity from where I stood to take this pic is reflected in the rugged terrains of the landscape where the ancient wall is snaking through its way up, as if reaching to heaven’s azure. The arch […]

Spending my morning with the Soldiers of Gyeongbokgung Palace

Now that the end of this trip is getting closer, I’m beginning to feel muscle pains in my back, legs and arms. The excitement of going to places and do some touristy stuff bore me now a bit and all I want is just sleep, sleep and sleep. You know, like lying in your bed without fellow […]

Landmarks to see at Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima

There are no more traces of the war and the atomic bombing in Hiroshima. Except for the A-Bomb Dome which is preserved and sturdily standing by the river. People are moving on but they don’t forget that saddest day of their lives and they don’t forget to honor the 140,000 victims of the nuclear bombing at […]
