It’s more fun in the Philippines! That’s why we had to return to the Philippines for the third time. This time we picked a snorkelling and waterfall paradise of Moalboal in the south of Cebu island. Diving with sea turtles, sardine balls and others definitely make for a great trip and getaway not only for Christmas!
Imagine, you are very close to making one of your big dreams come true. For example, you almost saved up enough money to go and travel to a place you always wanted to visit and only missing a few more bucks to set off. Or you are expecting exam results for which you studied hard and that can help you get the desired promotion at work. You put up the hard work and feel you are one step there and suddenly, something sets you back to where you started. No holidays in Europe. No promotion. You have to start all over again. How would you feel? What would you do? Would you give up on your dream?
Coral reefs are a dominant tourist attraction in countries like the Philippines, Indonesia or Malaysia. A little do we know that a very long time ago, they appeared in abundance in Hong Kong too. Luckily, there are still a few left here and you can explore them too! But please be gentle to these fragile ecosystems and take your litter home!
In 2019, we visited Japan and travelled to the central and southern parts of Honshu. From Tokyo to Hiroshima, we tried to balance the city and sightseeing with nature and sports activities like hiking or biking. Here are the detailed itinerary and budget.
What comes first to your mind when you hear Japan? Sushi, geisha, sumo, Shinkansen, blossoming cherry trees or something else? For us, it’s definitely Mt.Fuji! The perfect volcanic cone that dominates most of the postcards from Japan. We’ve been dreaming about it for long and finally ticked another bucket list item! What a journey to the top!
Four islands. Two kayaks. Tens of meters high majestic hexagonal rock formations. Crystal clear water. Sea caves. Sitting by the fire and sleeping on the beach. Two full days of kayaking with our friends in the paradise of Ung Kong islands. “Ung” what? You won’t believe these can be found in Hong Kong.
In May 2019, Kate hosted a workshop at the one of the Hong Kong’s Toastmasters Club where she is a proud member and entertained public speaking and travel enthusiasts! More than 35 people turned up to hear her authentic story of high altitude trekking and no showers along the way:-) #ClapClap

The photos in today’s post don’t need any comments. The Day D of our trek. We are reaching to the Larke pass at 5106 meters. Manaslu seems closer than ever before. The Manaslu Circuit is one of the toughest treks in Nepal. The reason is that there are no ways out along the trail. Once you start trekking, you trek for 13 days until Larke Pass. If the weather is not on your side, you have to turn back and walk another 13 days the same route to the place where you started. It’s hard but worth it!
