Lighthouse on the edge of a cliff in beautiful Santorini sounds like an ideal romantic setting for lovers.
But for solo travelers like me, this place can still be bewitching-- without making you needy for another hand to hold on to :-P
Located on the southwestern tip of the island, the Akrotiri Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece.
Guam may be known for its beaches, but this place will forever have a special place in my heart because of… SHOPPING! Maybe I live in a country blessed with better beaches… or maybe I’m just your usual crazy lady who cannot resist shopping ;-)
But seriously, in my opinion, Guam is the best place for shopping NEAR Southeast Asia. It’s just a few hours away from Southeast Asia and you could shop for American and European brands TAX-FREE.
If you’re planning to shop in Guam, here is a list of places to hear your shopaholic heart beating (and pockets crying):
1. NEX (Navy Exchange), US Naval Base
It’s the cheapest place to buy souvenirs like chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, toys, electronics, appliances, laptops, bags, groceries, etc. Getting inside is the hardest part since you need an authorized patron to sponsor you a guest pass.
Granada Cathedral of Incarnation is one of my favorite churches in Europe. It's not as grand as St. Peter's Basilica but its interiors is a standout.
It’s regarded as the masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance style and became the model for Renaissance churches in Spain and Latin America.
Colorful graffiti, quaint cafes, a breathtaking hilltop fortress, pretty blue tiles, artsy bars and markets, narrow streets, stairs leading to more stairs, Renaissance-styled churches and cathedrals, medieval architecture, breathtaking view of the mountains--- Granada will always be my favorite city in Spain.
Lahat naman ng tao ay nahuhumaling sa mga artista. ‘Yung parang sinasambitan ka ng perfect dialogues kaya para bang mapapa-eye-to-eye contact ka sa kanya. Lalo na’t naka-hihimatay ang kanyang titig sa iyo... mala-diyos ang kanyang ngiti... at parang-slowmo ang kanyang bawat galaw sa teleserye o pelikula. Perfect na mukha at katawan, at pati na rin ang kanyang ugali. Kahit may screen sa inyong pagitan, kakatha ka ng ilusyon na para bang kayo ang para sa isa’t isa.
Pero J, hindi ako kagaya ng karamihan na umaasang may pag-asa na mamahalin ako ng isang karakter na iginuhit lang ng mga pelikula. Lalo na’t nagtatrabaho ako sa media industry, alam kong walang pag-asa ang isang ordinaryong mamamayan sa isang taong kagaya mong libo-libo ang pinapakilig araw-araw. Kaya lang, J, dumating ang araw na nakilala kita sa totoong buhay, na walang screen na kinakailangang pumagitan sa ating dalawa.
Vlychada Beach (Vlichada Beach) is the closest thing I could get to reach the moon. Yellow carved cliffs standing tall near the "Moon Beach" makes this Greek paradise a breathtaking alternate universe.
The beautiful formations go on and on. It's as if you're transported to the surface of the moon or to another planet!
Dear blessed married/in a relationship ones,
On behalf of all of us, single beings, I've compiled some of your statements that we do not want to hear from you ever again. Kindly read, understand, and memorize in case you do not want to receive any of our frowns and smirks in the future:
We appreciate your concern. Thanks, but no thanks. You would probably never understand our lives as single beings but I can summarize it with just three words: WE ARE OK. So go on with your lives and stop questioning us.
single and happy Jazz
