As another year winds up, I take a look back at the past 12 months I’ve passed. And looking back, there’s nothing more I could feel beside being grateful. I just can’t believe that I came across this time faster. It’s way faster than I thought, indeed. But in so many ways, 2014 has been one of my best year. It was so full of challenges, laughter, tears, stress, works, struggles, and surprises. It got its ups and downs. But it was a big sweet one.
Now here we are at the very end of 2014. So here’s a little look back at the amazing year!
Let’s be grateful, as we’ve just lived one year more.
Remember about my last trip in downtown Tokyo a month ago? Well, aside from the busy & crowded Tokyo, now we’re heading southwest to an area called Hakone.
Imagine this : a blue sky, a lake with Mt. Fuji at the background, a red shrine gate, and of course, the mountainous scenes. That what makes Hakone area one of the most popular resorts in Japan, I think.
I’ve never imagined myself to be on a cruise. The only place I knew people usually do cruising is in Caribbean – which I believe is quite far from here. I was kinda surprise they have it here in South East Asia! Yes, we did our first cruise at Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. It’s around 3 hours drive from Hanoi – the capital city of Vietnam.
We booked a 2D1N cruise at Signature Cruise. Well, Fred did it. He took care of all of our tickets, hotels, and many other things. He’s also the one who read the map while we’re walking exploring the city (Hanoi and Saigon). All I’ve got to do is wear my jacket and my shoes since it’s slightly cold there in January. Then I’m ready to go.
I’m Sharon Loh from Indonesia. I travel and eat a lot during weekend or during my holiday. And finally I decided to create this blog on October 2012. Although I had no idea what I’m going to go through, I keep writing. And thank God my blog’s readers are growing, real strong. I’d love to hear what you think about my blog and what I may do to make it even better. I love you guys.
Think of holidays to Greece and what springs to mind? Long sunny days, pristine beaches and picturesque coves? Ancient pillared ruins and rocky outcrops jutting out over glorious turquoise seas? Or whitewashed towns and hidden villages serving up lashings of Grecian charm? You can expect to enjoy all of these things and many more on a holiday to Greece.
Traveling is all about adventure, wanderlust, and trying new things. I can’t believe I never snorkeled before. Well, I did scuba-dived once. But that was 4 years ago if I recalled. And I was accompanied with an instructor who always held my hand (or my oxygen tube) here and there under the water. It’s like you can’t even swim freely, you know. So, I’m not really into diving anyway. It’s troublesome, I can say. You’ve got to carry a huge oxygen tube with you. You’ve got to wear the suit, the fin, and well I don’t know… a diving mask?
For some people who don’t like bar girls, visiting Pattaya might seem like a strange decision to make. But honestly it’s something I’d love to do again in the next occasion.
I first went to Pattaya with my friends 2 years ago. And some of the best and most funniest and exciting times I’ve ever experienced were in this big sin city.
Yes, Pattaya is famous for its sex industry and it’s still going strong day by day. But that’s not Pattaya is all about. There are lots of family-friendly attractions and activities you can do here.Lanjutkan membaca “8 Reasons to Love Pattaya”
Yes, I know this is a little bit too late for posting a 2012-review. But I don’t care. Better late than never, isn’t it?
Well, 2012 has been a great eventful year for me. I traveled a lot (compared to 2011 when I went to Bali and Pattaya), I ate a lot, cooked a lot, rest a lot, study a little and unfortunately, I understand the lesson even less. The weird thing is, I’m completely okay with that.
