A trip to Cebu City

Jun 2, 2011 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: destinations, hotels / flights, Travels and destination

The weather these days were not good and typhoon Chedang was on her way to Philippines but still me, my two sisters and niece went to Cebu City for my interview and in the same time to have fun and make some bonding with each other. It’s was our first time to visit the place. It took us 40 minutes by plane before we reached Cebu City. The very first day we came after checking-in in a certain hotel in Cebu City, we went out to visit Taoist Temple on top of the mountain and the very next day I prepared myself for my interview and after we visited Basilica del Santo Nino-the oldest church in Cebu. It was short and tiring but enjoyable trip. We did enjoy it. We found Cebu City a very nice and beautiful place. And thanks God, I passed the interview and typhoon Chedang turned her way to other country. We went home very safe and successful. God was and is always at control and took care of everything.

At work, majority of our hotel guests are tourists from different countries. Usually Tourists traveled miles just to make a tour to witness the beauty of the country and its people. Some of our guests were too confident making tours of their own without any tour guides. I just wondered how they made it to drive and find the place wherein they were not familiar with and were able to come back to the Hotel? I found out, they were using handheld gps. It is a satellite-based navigation system that navigates locations all around the world and provides time information in all weather. It helped them enjoy the adventure of travelling without getting lost.

Summer getaway

Apr 27, 2011 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: destinations, holidays, Travels and destination



It’s summer time! This is the best time for us with my family to go out, to relax and have fun. We have been in “Enchanted River” in Surigao Del Sur which is known for its mysterious depth that gives deep sky blue color. We’ve been also in Emaars Wave pool in Davao City and Panas Falls in New Corella Composta Valley province. I am enjoying the summer. It was so hot these days but yesterday the weather changed to shady until it rained. What a cool summer. I went outside & played in the rain. I just miss being a kid.

Peru for less

Mar 18, 2009 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: destinations

Machu Picchu in Peru is one of the highly valued archeological sites in the world. And it would be an awesome experience of a lifetime to see what it has treasured for thousands of years through our own eyes, the spectacular views of the “Lost City of the Incas” and other magnificent architecture of their time. I know some people who have been there on their trip and all they could say was that it was an amazing Machu Picchu travel experience, made easy and comfortable by Peru for less travel agency. I have dealt with international travel agencies myself and I like those honest and upfront, who don’t have hidden or unreasonable charges especially to those who don’t know. But Peru for less has guaranteed that theirs is the least price published, of course superior service and support 24/7. You may book now.

Tahiti tourismI have been looking for information about the easy way to Tahiti for a Bora Bora holidays and vacation in the islands. I know that in organizing vacations like this, it is always better to deal with local agents from the place. They can always provide support and accommodate our concerns because they have the local knowledge advantage and the best vacation deals. Bora Bora is a major tourism place in Tahiti and staying in Bora Bora hotel just in front of the beautiful lagoons and beaches cannot be more inviting for relaxation Tahiti beach and accommodation. We have flown with different airlines but now we can fly to the island paradise by Air Tahiti for cheap fares. Everything is exotic. The pristine white sand beaches, ecology, geological diversity and colorful history of Bora Bora and the whole island group of Tahiti are an attraction in themselves, and especially their black pearl farming. It will make a perfect wedding anniversary gift.

Mar 19, 2008 Author: admin | Filed under: destinations, Featured, holidays, reviews

Na Pali coast adventure

I love nature. I love the beach. Though I am not the best swimmer, the beach always captivates me, maybe because of the freedom and wild feeling it gives those who indulge, and also because of it’s wonderful beauty. Stopping over in Hawaii many times I came to know first hand some facts about its great tourism spots. One place I want to explore some day is the Na Pali Coast along the Hawaiian shores. It is the best for nature trek and beach adventures. Na Pali coast is a national state park that can be accessed by hiking, by chopper or by boating. Kauai boat tours by the Yacht Club O‘ahu Channel sailing race winner Capt. Andy and his crew will sail us along the state park, the nature reserve, and to see geologic formations, volcanoes, and other natural features. They are always breathtakingly beautiful. You will not just witness the wonder of the works of nature which are diverse in this place, but always view wildlife and even Kauai whale watching. Isn’t that a one of a kind experience? All of nature wild and free, the amazing cliffs, exceptional landscapes is always stress relieving, the place so lush and tropical. Some called it a must-see place; yeah we can call it paradise on its own. Sailing adventures or the daring raft expeditions, you can have it all with an online comprehensive coast guide to Na Pali.
