So, I heard there’s this new flight ticket and hotel booking app called Traveloka that my friends have been suggesting me to try. I recently downloaded it and decided to see how it works. And as a result, I booked a one-bedroom suite at Richmonde Hotel Ortigas for a weekend staycation.
Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you can no longer wander. ☺ While pregnancy may be an amazing phase in the lives of some women, it may also be an unpleasant experience because of the major physical changes that expecting mothers have to go through during this stage. So sure, expecting mothers can still travel. As a matter of fact, I think it’s the best time to just chill, relax, and take your mind off the awful changes that pregnancy may bring.
Ever since we finished the Annapurna Base Camp trek, I’ve been asked SEVERAL TIMES how much it costed us to reach the foot of the world’s tenth highest mountain. I think it’s about time I share this information with you guys. Sorry you had to wait this long. *wink* Nepali Visa – $25.00 You can apply for your visa either before leaving the country or upon your arrival in Nepal. They issue tourist visa for 15 days, 30 days, and 90 days. We paid for a 15-day visa for $25.00 since we’re staying in Nepal for 10 days only.
When Rowjie and I first learned that I am pregnant, it was blissfully chaotic. It’s still blissful, but less chaotic now. The first trimester was really critical and we were worried all the time. Thankfully, we were able to surpass it all and, as of writing, I am now on my sixth month of pregnancy. That being said, I urged Rowjie that we push through our Boracay trip last December as a stress-reliever. I told him that this may be the last vacation I’d have before or after I give birth to our first-born.
Words by: Kaiz Galang Photos by: Rowjie Galang and Edwin Rolian The smallest aircraft I’ve ever boarded touched down. Tears were barely clinging when I saw the ragged Tenzing-Hillary Airport signage. I almost couldn’t believe that the scene I was witnessing is real. I used to just see it in National Geographic shows. Then the chilling air kissed me as I stepped down the aircraft as if saying, “Welcome to Lukla. Sagarmatha has long been waiting for you.”
