What You Could Get in Alexandria, VA for $10 – Strolling Around the Old Town

Whenever I hear ‘Alexandria’, my mind always goes to the city in Egypt. But hey, did you know that there’s also another city with the same name in the United States?

Located in the state of Virginia, I wasn’t really aware of its existence until I got connected to Maria from Call It Adventure for this week’s $10 series.

Yup, she’ll be covering the city that is just south of Washington D.C. So, how could you spend your $10 in the city that is known as the Old Town? Check this one out for details! 🙂

The Art of Working From Home: Pros and Cons Before You Consider Leaving Your Office Job (and Everything Else)

I’ve been quite busy lately to the point that I didn’t even have time to update anything throughout this weekend. Last weekend, I went out again with Nesia and Jean, my go-to partners when it comes to exploring places around Bandung. After we hit off the road to Stone Garden last year, we decided to go to Ciwidey last week.

Anyway, one issue that came up when we went out is this: my working from home situation.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my current job more than my previous one(s). But then again, not everything in life sparks joy because life isn’t that fair like that. There are times when you have a hard time, sometimes it has something to do with what you do, with whom you have to do it, or even how you do it.

As it is holiday’s seasons for some of my cousins who are still at school, they come to Bandung to spend their holiday here. Long story short, as someone who’s not exactly a big fan of kids, I couldn’t really stand with all the crying or the yelling. Especially not when I have to catch with the deadlines.

What You Could Get in Tbilisi for $10 – Get Busy in Georgia’s Capital City

Hello everyone, rogor khar?!

In case you’re wondering whether I spoke gibberish at that point, just know that it’s Georgian word for ‘how are you?’. And when I said Georgia, I mean Georgia the tiny country somewhere in Eastern Europe. Yes, not Georgia as in one of the states in the USA.

I’ve got a few good friends from Georgia, as I met them during my summer course almost 10 years ago in Turkey. In case you’re not familiar with the country, go google it now. For those who like football ever since the golden era of AC Milan in early 2000s, you might not know about the country, but you’re probably familiar with Kakha Kaladze.

If you knew his personal story about his late brother Levan, you might also take a bit of concern about the country as well. Just like what I did back then. Otherwise, you might want to know a little more about this country and what it can over for your wanderlust.

This week on What You Could Get In The City for $10, Chris from Worthy Go will share with us how far you could get in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia.
