Horseshoe Bend is Breathtaking

I’ve seen stunning photos of Horseshoe Bend before and I thought, “I’ll be here one day.” It happened last month.And boy, I was speechless looking down at the graceful and mighty Colorado River that carves Horseshoe Bend for millions of years. For those with fear of heights, looking down, for

Views of the Bright Angel Trail at the Grand Canyon

If you have very limited time to stay at the Grand Canyon (South Rim), and you really want to go hiking down the natural wonder, you better take Bright Angel Trail. The views are stunning and the difficulty level isn’t really that bad—even for a beginner. FLIGHTS TO AND HOTELS

Where to watch the Grand Canyon Sunset

I arrived at the Grand Canyon at 2:15 in the afternoon from Flagstaff. The Arizona Shuttle Bus dropped me off at Maswik Lodge and from there I got on the Blue Bus Line to the Grocery Store. I had my late lunch at the cafe inside. Later, I collected the

PHOTOS: Grand Canyon Sunrise is Magic

The Grand Canyon Sunrise is one of the things you would never regret waking up early. I woke up at 4:15 in the morning. Yes, that early! I left my campsite at 4:35. The first shuttle bus was at 4:30 and I reckoned it’s gonna pass by Mather Campground at

Is Sedona the Most Beautiful City in America?

The Tourism office of Sedona claims the red rock city as the most beautiful city in the world. I’d say, it’s the most beautiful city in America. I mean, it’s like “Wow, it’s beautiful,” not like “OMG! It’s beautiful!” It doesn’t have the appeal of New York nor the glamour

From Phoenix to Grand Canyon: Tips for Backpackers

Arizona isn’t cheap if you don’t drive. The State isn’t made to be backpacker-friendly. Getting a bus in Southeast Asia is way easier than going from one city to another in Arizona. However, if your ultimate destination is ONLY the Grand Canyon, then, you can, for sure, save a lot

Graffiti Tour in Brooklyn

You can find grafitti anywhere in New York. But not so much in Manhattan, at least to places I’ve walked by. If you go to other boroughs, like Brooklyn, Queens and bronx, grafitti (or street art or murals as they say) is everywhere. From abandoned buildings to bridges to empty

New York Skyline at Night

New York skyline is, I must admit, more beautiful at night. However, I’d advise anyone to see New York from above both during the day and at night. While you’ll be seeing the same cityscape in different times of the day, New York turns magical at night. That’s when you

View of New York Skyline from the Empire State Building

I’m not really impressed with the view of New York skyline from the Empire State Building. I like the view from the Rockefeller Center way better. Aside from the view, the queue management in Rockefeller Center is also much better than the one in the Empire State Building. On your

This is New York’s Most Beautiful Art Deco Building

There is no doubt that Chrysler Building is New York’s most beautiful art deco building. It’s gorgeous on a beautiful azure and it’s stunning at night, shining like a diamond in the city that never sleeps. New York City is dubbed as the world’s capital of art deco architecture—and the

What to do and see at Universal Studios in LA

There are so many things to do and see at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. So, it’s better that you start early—especially when you have kids in tow. One day wasn’t even enough for someone like me who traveled solo. Maybe it was just me who took time to everything

What’s inside the Museum of Sex in New York

Museum of Sex in New York is the second one of its kind I’ve been to—and I’m not impressed. If you’ve never been to one, then, this one is okay–as a start. There’s nothing there that shocked me. I thought I’d learn something shocking but unfortunately, I wasn’t. LOL… To

See the world through Bushwick Collective Murals

There’s a place in Brooklyn where you can see the world through Bushwick Collective murals. Artists from around the world came to share their art, for the love of art. From Australia to France; from Italy to the Philippines, muralists come to share the vision of the Bushwick Collective. You

What to expect in Soho New York

Soho New York is synonymous to branded little shops. Or equally synonymous to cobblestoned streets, too. Or more famously synonymous to [easyazon_link asin=”B00H8KC1OS” locale=”US” new_window=”yes” nofollow=”default” tag=”pridecostume-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”yes”]Sex and the City (SATC)[/easyazon_link], a TV show that mentioned the neighbourhood—almost in every episode for five years! And of

Strolling at Little Italy in New York

Visiting New York? Don’t miss the city’s Little Italy. Though the Italians have long gone and moved to different neighbourhoods, it’s still vibrant and alive with everything Italian. Going for a stroll around the area will reward you with something nice, quaint and lovely. Little Italy isn’t just historic but

The Surfers in La Jolla

After I finished my own communing with the sea, I continued walking further along the cliffs of La Jolla. A van parked on the roadside where a group of friends got out in a hurry, unloading their duffel bags and their surf boards. They ran into the shore, dropped their
