Smyle Inn :-)

Backpackers and budget-travelers alike are always on the lookout for cheap but nice places to stay in every destination they will travel to. After spending a whole day exploring a vibrant city such as New Delhi, tired wanderers are looking forward to cap their memorable day either lounging in their comfy beds or sipping their favorite drinks before calling it a night.

Si Christina and Me

When visiting San Pablo City, Laguna, strolling by Sampaloc lake is one of those activities which seems to stop time. Jogging early, just when the sun kisses the morning mist is also a good way to start the day.  I would sometimes just do this using flip flops. But then, I came to know that a good pair of shoes, like those basketball shoes from Zalora, would be beneficial to an aspiring runners' itchy feet just (ahem) like me. 

After spending time frolicking around the biggest lake in San Pablo, you may consider having your merienda at this cozy restaurant just a few steps away from San Pablo City Cathedral.  A city-tour can be tiring and Si Christina offers a variety of food choices which are reasonably priced.  An early evening coffee break is much more cozier and relaxing.

Wander Photo: Rappelling

Ah....the thrill of this activity!  This was taken more than five years ago during my first hike, climbing Mt. Romelo of Famy, Laguna in a stormy weekend at the wee hours of the morning.  I tell you, it was not an easy task for then first-timers like me!

After almost five hours of traversing muddy treks, we finally reached the top, rested and capped the day with this stomach-turning activity.

  I was the second to the last to rapel the 15-storey high Mt. Buruwisan Falls.  

Go back with me up to the glorious mountains!  My very first time documented here.
