Wadi Rum has affected me like no other travel destination before. Read why.
I travel for "sunsets above other oceans." I've seen the sunset in Wadi Rum and it was indeed a wonder to behold. Read why I fell in love with Jordan!

When faced with challenges, Filipinos just say "bahala na." What does it mean?

Ever wondered what it's like in Amman, the capital of Jordan? Here are my first impressions.
This big city is similar to any other metropolis in the world. However, it is so different in other aspects as well. Here are my first impressions of Amman.

I just got back from a week in Jordan, and all I can say is Wow. That country is beautiful, and is more than just Petra! My most memorable moment was observing the sunset in Wadi Rum. It's a really humbling experience. I highly suggest you visit Jordan!

So this is how a sky burial is done. I hope I can witness it someday too. From +Jazza Lesh Nomadasaurus 
On the hills of ancient Tibet, surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and local priests, we experienced a sacred sky burial as the body of the dead was given back to the living souls of the earth.

Ever been to Jordan? I am so glad to have been given the opportunity to visit. Seeing the Treasury at Petra was a dream come true! How amazing is this wonder of the world??

Dreaming of Austria <3
The Hundertwasser House is a beautifully designed housing project by an Austrian artist. Would you want to live in a cultural heritage like this?
