A vacation to the United States would not be complete without tasting the varieties of apples that the country is known for. One freezing morning, my sister invited me to buy fresh fruits and muffins in Sprouts Farmers Market. Every time we will go for a stroll or grocery shopping, I’m so elated to get out of the house to savor the winter breeze and to see every corner of America! And I was glad Gie did not forget about my mounting desire to eat apples in green, red, and yellow.
Our three-day vacation in Las Vegas is not enough to explore its fabulous charm especially the famous Las Vegas Strip. However, this year-round destination and the people I share the experience with will make our last day extra special. Our generous sponsors for this vacation, Miko and Derick are certified foodies. They will bring us to the award-winning buffet in Garden Court in Main Street Station located in Downtown Las Vegas.
Las Vegas isn’t all about the glitz and glamour, the vibrant city lights, swanky casinos and hotels, and the like. It also offers an incredible dining experience. Our generous hosts for our vacation in the city, my niece Miko and husband Derick had toured us to exciting places, and at the same time, they brought us to some of its unique restaurant which includes a boiling seafood restaurant, The Boiling Crab.
It was hard to wake up early in a cold and freezing morning, snuggling against the warmth of our bed. However, today is the start of our exciting tour in Las Vegas, so we have to eat breakfast, take a shower, and get dressed for the long day ahead. My niece Miko and husband Derick who sponsored our trip will bring us to famous hotels and casinos and we will revel in a unique dining experience. We are thrilled to explore and see the charm and elegance of the famous Las Vegas.
Exciting. Shimmering. Fabulous. This is what Las Vegas to me. Apart from our two-week vacation in California, we will visit my niece and her family in Nevada, particularly in Las Vegas. We can’t contain our excitement as we traveled from one state to the other to see the charm and elegance of what is known as “The Entertainment Capital of the World”.
Visiting the United States is one of my biggest dreams since my high school days. Back then, I had a notebook with a list of attractions in each State. I collected picture clippings as well which include the Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. I also had the Golden Gate Bridge for the man-made category. Never in my life had I imagined that one day, me and my loved ones would set foot in one of these famous landmarks. A pipe dream that turns into reality!
I was so thankful that we were granted a multiple US Visa by November of this year. However, we have no plan yet to visit my sister who is based in California and my niece in Nevada because airfare is pretty expensive for one family. I content myself imagining ourselves traveling to a sprawling country teeming with many amazing tourist attractions and staggering natural beauty. America is indeed, a dream destination. Little did we know that by the end of December this year, we would be getting in the United States on an abrupt visit!
My hubby and I craved for ramen after we bought grocery goodies in Hypermarket in SM Mall of Asia. However, as we walked on the Ground Floor just outside Hypermarket, my eyes suddenly beamed with excitement upon seeing this Thai Restaurant called Soi. This is in time with my upcoming trip to Thailand this January. I tried Thai food in Singapore but missed out on the famous Pad Thai. I will try this in Soi and see why travelers visiting Thailand are craving to taste this dish.
I am an art enthusiast (from sketching, painting, drawing, photography, anything that my hands can do), the reason why I admired and appreciated Apo Whang-Od, the woman of ingenuity. She caught my heart that is why when I was invited by Cy (my favorite travel buddy) to visit her place, in a flash, I said Yes! After all, I waited for years to meet her and set foot to tattoo village in Buscalan as well.
La Union is one of the frequented places in Luzon nowadays. Aside from surfing, beach bumming and food tripping, one has to enjoy grapes picking too. After your fill of refreshing vacation and fun activities, drop by on a grapes farm and enjoy the experience as you do the picking yourself!
