Traveling on Xmas Day: Things to Do to Keep the Christmas Spirit Alive When You’re Away From Home

Maybe you’re traveling during the Christmas day, or maybe you’re just simply trying to avoid any possible family drama during the holidays. I mean, as much as I hate to admit… The most toxic environment that I could feel to give me a lot of pressure, that’d be my family and that’s probably the reason why sometimes I dislike the holidays for the nature of seeing a lot of family members.

But hey, celebrating Christmas when you’re away from home could still be special for you. If anything, maybe it can be some unforgettable experience for you if not your best Christmas ever.

So, are you planning to celebrate Christmas far from home? Or are you doing it intentionally but somewhat you still want to keep the Christmas spirit alive?

Penida LaCasa Cottage: A Cozy Place to Stay in Nusa Penida, Bali

I got some kind of writer’s block lately. Not because I had no idea what to write, because I’ve actually got plenty of topics that I want to write on… But rather I was too lazy to sit down and start writing in front of my computer. My back hurts from carrying this dry sense of humor. LOL.

On a serious note though, I also got some other projects that I’ve been working on. I’m transitioning for my VA role, as now I’m more responsible for content creation instead of just managing clients’ social media. But anyway… I’m here now, so forget about work! 😀

I know that the first thing I need to write after this writer’s block passed would be the review of the accommodation where I stayed in Nusa Penida to catch up with my last Bali post. So, if you’re planning to go to the island and considering some options for the accommodation, I’ll share my experience staying at Penida LaCasa Cottage in Nusa Penida on this post.

What You Could Get in Haarlem for $10 – Experience the Real Dutch Culture in the Less Touristy City

Hi everyone!

Here’s the thing, I’ve got a plan to finally go to Europe maybe next year. In fact, I’ve been saving up for this since enough money in my bank account is necessary in order to get the Schengen visa. You know, Indonesian passport holder problem.

Speaking of which, I heard the easiest way to apply for Schengen visa in Indonesia is through the Dutch embassy. I don’t have any plan yet to stop by the Netherlands quite yet, but I’m considering it. And just when I’m considering it, Lisa from Flip Flop Globetrotters reached out to cover the first city in the Netherlands for our very own $10 series.

Not Amsterdam, but it is definitely not so far from the capital city… It’s Haarlem.

Or as my friend Keshia said sarcastically, “It’s a city close to that Amsterdam country.” And it is due to the ignorance of some people who think the Netherlands is only Amsterdam. 😛
