Making the Most of Your Next Big Trip

We’ve almost all been hit with a sense of wanderlust at some point or another in our lives. The yearn to travel far and wide, seeing places we haven’t seen before, immersing ourselves in different cultures and really getting to experience more of the world.

Right now, travel may be off the cards. The rapid spread of coronavirus means that many of us aren’t able to safely leave our houses, nevermind jumping on flights to the other side of the world.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your next trip for when this all passes. Here are a few ways you can get the most out of your next big travel adventure!

Hai Chau, Chau Doc Hotel: A Recommended Place to Stay in An Giang Province

Despite all the travel bans around the world due to Covid-19, I’m not gonna stop writing some of my experiences I had on my last trip around Indochina. It’s better to update it now when I still have a good memory about my journey. Besides, I took almost 2 months that I got plenty of things to write about.

Now that you’ve probably read about my last post about places to visit around An Giang Province, today I’m gonna write a review about the hotel where I stayed for a couple of nights in Chau Doc: Hai Chau Hotel

If you’re looking into the accommodation around Chau Doc, chances are you won’t find as many hotels or hostels as you get in the other cities in Vietnam. I suppose it’s also because there aren’t so many international tourists coming to Chau Doc. If anything, most of them who come to Chau Doc are probably enroute to or from Cambodia.

The Diary of a Quarantine Queen: My Daily Activity as a Lazy Yet Productive Lady During the Pandemic

Before you read further, just know that this is not the right post if you’re looking for a recipe. In fact, I got an idea to write this post because I figure there must be someone somewhere who’s pretty much like me during this quarantine period. A person with no talent for cooking or baking who isn’t yet interested in Tiktok either.

But heyyyy, just because I never post what I make in the kitchen or show off my dancing talent through my social media, it doesn’t mean that I’m not productive. If anything, I just told my mom that instead of making a baking content to share on Instagram, I’d rather work so that I can order delicious food online.

If there’s one thing I am thankful for this quarantine, I think it’s my situation. I know some people who got laid off during this difficult period, and I’m glad that I’m currently in the position where I can share a little piece of my fortune to those in need these days.

Anyway, in this post I actually want to share my day-to-day life as a lazy person. I can’t for the love of me remember when was the last time I did my exercise, I even told my cousin and my brother that with my lifestyle, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day I’d die from a heart attack.

But if that’s what happens, just know that I don’t regret it because I’m living a happy, productive life.

What You Could Get in Yangon for $10 – Cherish the Burmese Local Life Around the City

Hi everyone!

I know, we’re all frustrated with the situation. This is not the right time to travel still, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t plan out our next travel destination right? It helps us to expect better things to come, and keep our hope high!

So, after we covered the capital city of Vietnam Hanoi last week, this week we’re going to cover the city that used to be the capital of another country in the Southeast Asia. As you’ve probably read the title already, yes… We’re gonna talk about Yangon on this week’s $10 series!

I’ve been to Yangon and Bago City a few years ago, but I feel like I could explore more places around Myanmar. Today, we’ve got Adriana of Czech the World to outline how far we could go in Yangon. So, what could you get in the city for $10?!

Blog Trial and Error: What Works and What Doesn’t Throughout My Blogging Journey

Hi everyone!

I figure it’s been a while since the last time I wrote something related to blogging. I just deactivated my Indonesian blog and I’m currently in the mood to talk about my blog trial and error. I’ve been blogging for forever, but I only took blogging seriously (and not for the sake of journaling or ranting) since 3 years ago.

Now that I decided to deactivate my Indonesian blog, it’s obvious that there’s something about it that doesn’t work to my liking. So, here I am writing about the blog trial and error that I’ve done throughout my blogging journey in the past few years.

Besides, during this difficult time in the quarantine, I know some people might run out of the ideas to kill the boredom. Well, you might as well consider starting a blog to spend in your free time. So, what’s up with blogging this time?
