We just arrived in Petra on a 4-hour road trip from Amman and we needed to get some shut-eye before our Petra by Night Tour to see The Treasury. The room in our hotel (Petra Moon Hotel - Book Here) was good. What made it even better was the view outside. Petra, Jordan November 2015 [...]

We went to Bali, Indonesia early this year and had a good time enjoying a week of beach, shopping, relaxation and party.

Either it was Morocco or somewhere in Asia. My wife and I were wondering where we would spend 7 days of our free travel time. We would be able to get affordable flight prices whichever. Since it's peak of winter time in the Middle East, we opted to go somewhere warm. Asia seemed to be a [...]

After a fun afternoon of Go Kart racing in Tarlac’s Kart City, we spent the night in Microtel Inn & Suites Luisita.
