Scandinavia Series: Oslo, Norway Travel Guide

NOTE: Photos will be added within 1 week. 🙂

Scandinavia is not a cheap travel destination and Oslo, the capital city of Norway, is no exception. Nevertheless, it was well worth the visit. I see it as a spectacular destination with nature-related activities, modern architecture, reliable public transportation and so much more.

Norway can be enjoyed on a budget if you plan ahead. If cutting on costs would not be feasible, at least you can research and plan ahead to make the most out of your stay.

Online Shopping at Morrisons

I am so impressed at how convenient it is to shop online — especially the groceries! 🙂 On our first few months here in the UK, we bought our supplies from a Morrisons branch which is just a short walk from our home. The trips to the supermarket were exciting at first, but they became a bit tedious and tiresome eventually, us having to carry a week’s worth of groceries.

American vs. British Words

It has already been four months since E and I relocated here in the UK from the Philippines. Whilst English is a commonly spoken language back home (school, workplace and even in regular conversations), I learned that there are vocabulary differences between American English and British English.

Home Search in London: the Basics

Hello! I created this post to share what we learned from our recent home search when  my husband (E) and I moved to London. Prior to our flight and this huge leap, E already did his research on the nice places to live in London, which borough (local authority district). I am grateful for my husband for looking into it as it made us more prepared for the home search. We are fortunate because E’s employer provided us with hotel accommodation for a couple of weeks. This gave us some time to visit some of our pre-selected properties.

2017 European Trip Itinerary (Our Honeymoon)

My husband, E, and I went on our honeymoon shortly after our wedding. If you’re looking into visiting nine (9) countries in Europe within three (3) weeks, then this itinerary might work out for you too. All the credits go to my husband for coming up with this jampacked, but still realistic schedule. And for funding too! 🙂

London Public Transportation

I get so amazed at efficient public transportation. Both tourists and locals make more out of their time when the means of transportation are accessible, affordable and reliable. Having lived in London for almost two months, I would like to initially share what I think about their public transportation, particularly about the train system and the buses. I have noticed that people from different walks of life take the public transportation. And this, for me, is an indication that it is really inclusive and serving its purpose.

There are several types of transportation in London.

Valentine’s Day 2012 – Hot Air Balloon Ride

February 14, 2012: Valentine’s Day 2012

Hot Air Balloon Ride - Valentine's Day 2012

I’ve never had an eventful and memorable Valentine’s Day experience. I never saw it coming though that this year would be a whole lot different. I missed the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga.. FOR THIS. An hour of Hot Air Balloon ride in Cappadocia, Nevsehir in Turkey! Glad we went there during the winter season cos the snow made the sight more beautiful (at least for me who just experienced snow for the first time 😀 )
