It's not everyday that we're in New York City, but when we are, we make sure that we stay in a nice place. We checked out a bunch of hotels, hostels, and Airbnb's in the city, but there was only one place that really caught our attention, and it was the Arlo NoMAd Hotel.
I finally got one of my San Andres vlogs up! WOOT WOOT! I know it took forever for this vlog to finish, but better late than never right? After all, my trip to San Andres is one I would love to relive over and over again! :) I'm just glad so glad that I was able to get this video edited and published.
Like I mentioned in my Anolaima post, Colombia reminded me so much of the Philippines, my home country. It has the same vibe, the same amount of grit, and the same warmth from its people. In today's post, I will be showing you photos I took around Bogotá. I wish I had taken the photos a bit better, but apparently, this was the best I could do. But I think the main reason why these photos aren't the best is because we had to be extremely cautious about our devices. Colombia, like the Philippines, has its dangers, so most of the time, I just had my phone in my bag, which was kind of a bummer.
Anolaima is a little town in Colombia, located 71 km. West from Bogotá (and yes, I Googled that haha). This is where Jorge's grandmother lives, and we paid her a visit days before we had to leave for the US.
Okay, I'll admit it. I've been slacking off on blogging and I'm so sorry! I should have had this post up months ago, but life happens you know? Well, it's up now, and I really want to finish what I started so here we go. This is day two of my Columbus adventure!
WARNING: Lots of photos ahead since day 2 was when we had a really full schedule for exploring!
When LifeinCbus reached out to me to do visit Columbus, Ohio for two sponsored posts, I was beyond excited! First of all, it would be my first paid travel ever, and secondly, it is the perfect opportunity to go see and explore a new city! After contemplating for a couple days, I accepted the gig and I was so glad that they let Jorge tag along with me because a trip to a foreign city would have been difficult and lonely!
When traveling to new places, you don't really have to spend so much money because you can always find fun and free things to do, if you do your research! Columbus is a city full of life so finding places to see and things to do that are fun and free aren't difficult! Today, I'm going to share with you my top 5 spots in Cbus that will sure make your trip memorable.
I did some research before traveling to Columbus, Ohio, or how the locals would call it, Cbus, and I learned that they have a bunch of local coffee shops. We all know how much I love my coffee so I knew I had to check a few out! Today, I'm going to share with you the top 3 coffee shops in Cbus that I fell absolutely in love with!
Summer is in full swing, and that means that a lot of people are trying to get some time off to travel! I love the summer season because to me, it means: a trip to the closest beach, or a road trip to a neighbor city or state; and I love both equally! Jorge and I are actually going on a road trip this August and I'm so excited! Can't wait to let you guys know where we're going! In the meantime, I'm going to show you what I usually pack on my travels, c/o Target's Cottonelle Clean Care Box! #CottonelleCleanCareBox #Target #CleanRipple
I seriously didn't know how to write about my Colombia trip so I'm letting you guys know now that the Colombia posts won't be in chronological order ⏤ I wrote the blog posts by place (city). Hopefully you won't get too confused as these posts roll out. Now that you've read my short disclaimer, let's proceed...
On our last full day in Bogotá, Colombia, the family decided to visit the famous Monserrate. If you've watched Narcos, you've probably seen this mountain from their opening billboard. Monserrate is a mountain that can be found in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá. This place is definitely a must-see when in Bogotá for its amazing gardens, breathtaking views and the beautiful church. This place also holds so much history, and hey, how often do you find a church on top of a mountain? It was very overcast and foggy that day, but it still didn't stop us from getting nice pictures.
I've visited Washington D.C. a number of times but it was my first time to actually document a full day trip for a blog post when Jorge was given the opportunity to takeover Daniel Wellington's Snapchat account. Jorge had planned a very eventful day in D.C. so I figured it was the perfect time for me to finally write something about D.C. and what we usually do there when we visit. I guess we can call this post "a city guide of sorts".
When Jorge told me we will be visiting and staying in San Andrés for 5 days, I got so freaking excited! I don't remember the last time I visited a tropical island and the whole time I was living in Canada, all I wished for was a trip to the beach with legit hot weather! That wish was granted a few months ago when we visited Colombia in February.
I'm going to be splitting my San Andrés posts into two parts because I have so many photos to share with you guys and I don't want to upload everything into one page to avoid any lagging that may occur.
On Easter Sunday (I know, it took me this long to get this post up! 😭), I had a very eventful day! After church, Jorge, Angelo and I drove all around the DMV area. DMV stands for DC, Maryland and Virginia. It was a very long day for us but it was fun, despite the cold and gloomy weather!
I made sure to only include one-second clips from our trip, with a few exceptions. You'll see.🙊 I hope you guys enjoy this travel vlog, and if you did, please don't forget to give it a 👍like👍 and subscribe to my channel if you want to see more videos from me!
