What You Could Get in Hamburg for $10 – Is It Possible to Travel on the Budget in the City?

When I was 11, one of my best friends Mayang moved to Germany since her dad got a job there. It was my first time knowing there’s a city in Germany called Hamburg. It wasn’t until later that I found out this random trivia about how the city is related so much to hamburger.

It was since then that I wish I could stop by the city someday. To meet my best friend, and also to see how the city of Hamburg is.

19 years later now, I’ve never got a chance to stop by Hamburg, but Mayang still lives in Germany. She even occasionally stalks me out of my blog, and I know because she told me so. And yes, she’s basically the only friend from elementary school with whom I still have some occasional contact with.

So, if Mayang happens to stalk me and find this piece, I just want to let her that no worries… Visiting her in Hamburg is still in my must-do list. But today, thanks to Daniela of Top Writers Review, I’ll be covering Hamburg on this week’s $10 series!

Review and Hit-or-Miss: Herborist Olive Series

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something in the beauty section of this blog. Nothing personal, it’s just I’ve come to realize that I may come across “suck” as a beauty blogger, so it really discouraged me to write something related to beauty products. Ironically though, some of my beauty posts rank fairly high so I suppose it’s worth another try to write some more.

This time, I’ll talk about one of the well-known Indonesian beauty brands that you may find in some souvenir shops in Bali: Herborist.

Yep, if you got any chance to travel around Bali and stop by some souvenir shops there, you could easily find some beauty products from body lotion, bath salt and even body scrubs from various brands. Herborist is one of them.

Other than Herborist, you’d also find other brands like Bali Ratih, Bali Alus, and many other different brands that might attract your lust to pamper yourself.

What You Could Get in Dubrovnik for $10 – More Than Just Game of Thrones!

Hi everyone, welcome back to the $10 series!

This is the first series of $10 in 2020, as I gotta postpone the publishing schedule as the last Wednesday was new year’s day… Are you excited?!

And I’ve got a lot of reasons why I have to be excited about this first post. First of all, there’s something about new year that always comes with the positivity and good things and hope that come along. To top it all, the first post in the series in 2020 will be covering a city in the country that is on top of my bucket list: Croatia!

If you managed to read my new year’s resolution, I’m planning to visit the country anytime soon. So, after we covered the capital city Zagreb in the first few posts of the series almost 2 years ago, this week we’re gonna talk about Dubrovnik!

Yep, the city that has gained its popularity in the past few years, thanks to Game of Thrones. And thanks to Ashlea of Dashing Around The World, now we can see how far we could get around Dubrovnik. So, what’s the city beyond GoT?

Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence: Home Away From Home for Your Family Holiday in Bali

Hi everyone!

Tonight, I got pissed as Arsenal vs Chelsea game just finished, and the Gunners played so well only to get robbed in the end. I swear I could never forgive both Jorginho and Pawson for this game… Ever.

Anyway, even before the match started I was already prepared to write a review of the last accommodation where I was staying with my family in Bali. This post will also be the last post I have for my Bali series. I mean, I’m not planning to go back to Bali anytime soon, but who knows? Maybe I will post some more about it some time in the future. Never say never.

As I mentioned, in this post I’ll be sharing a review of the last place I stayed in Bali. It’s in Kuta area, and while Kuta might lose its popularity as it has become super touristy… The accommodation that I stayed in was actually the great one that I’d totally recommend for anyone traveling to Bali with their family.

It’s Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence, and here’s my review!
