Trip Moment Recommendations
rainy christmas in florence! ✨
My most recent trip was to Florence, Italy in December with my partner. Italy as always is super romantic and even more amazing at Christmas with the light festival throughout the city making every street a performance of lights. Our favourite sights were the Santa de Croca and the famous ponte vechio bridge! The architecture is incredible, every street you turn theres an amazingly designed building and you can see the cathedral from practically everywhere!
Our hotel was right near the cathedral so made it super easy to find our way home, however the city has such good character you get to learn it so fast!
Would definitely reccomend! And the rain pours down heavy but it brought so much reflection with the lights, it was just perfect! #Christmaslights #florence #italy #romanticcity

Beautiful Christmas lights in Madrid
Although travelling in the winter can be troublesome - you need to pack thicker clothes which makes your luggage heavier and the day is much shorter, you get Christmas lights, Christmas markets and festive events that you don’t have in the summer.
If you walk by Gran Via, Retiro and most robust areas in Madrid, you instantly feel the joy and excitement of the winter season with the festive songs that being played in shops and the decorations in the street and department stores.
The winter in Madrid isn’t horribly cold (around 10 degree on average) - you get to feel the change of season but still manage to do most outdoor activities without feeling frozen.

Yu Gardens, Shanghai
Yu Gardens are ideal to visit if you want some instagram worthy photos. The old streets beside the garden are free to walk around, filled with lights and Chinese culture. I would recommend visiting at night when the area looks like it comes to life.
Walking through Yu Gardens remember to look inside the stores, at certain times of year you can buy local gifts that tie in with events upcoming. I’ve visited in the summer and near CNY so I’ve seen how the stores change their products. Some food stalls are also located inside the Yu area, try some local delicacies while you’re here.

Christmas Wonderland at Garden by the Bay
Christmas is always the busiest festive season in Singapore, regardless rain or shine. Other than Orchard Road beautiful lighting decor, you could find many places are well decorated as well, especially at Garden by the Bay.
We were having staycation during last year Christmas at Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay. In the evening, we went to Garden by the Bay. Since it is located within walking distance, we have a strolled there after having dinner in the hotel.
During normal days, access to outdoor area is FOC. But only during Christmas, you will need to purchase entry ticket to access to The Wonderland.
The lightings are beautiful and I like the Xmas songs. As usual, all the “photo spot” having long queue, so you got to be patient. Else just stand beside, take one and then photoshop yourself into the picture.

Viva La Vrboska
Off the beaten path lies a little town called Vrboska on the Island of Hvar. and off that beaten path lies a small settlement called Basina. It is quite a small place with a hand full of apartments to rent. but the selling point for this gorgeous cove is the beach and the water.
There is almost no human activity throughout the year so this place is mostly untouched. During the summer season you can drive up here on the dirt roads away from all the noise of the tourist traps.
The sea is quite. I’ve and during the summer the water is a good temperature. not to cold. and the beach is amazing. it’s a nice rocky beach, so no need to worry about sand getting everywhere and was water is crystal clear.
If you are looking for a nature resort this is the closest you can find on the island. There are some glamping options close by. I would highly recommend this place. 🙂
Another perfect perfect place to chill out. If your partner is not in the mood please bring her here. 🙂 I would highly recommend the food that is shown on the picture. Their chips taste like potato corner with more powder.
A walking distance from my office, this cafe is a blessing during this typhoon aftermath. We found bliss here after our long and tired day. Cold drinks available from opening to closing time. Foods are great! And thankfully, I have found a place that offers kaya toast! I’ve been craving for this since our trip to HKG.
The food specially cakes are not really good.
Nice interior design (instagrammable).
If it's your first time here, would recommend getting the Snow Latte and Croffle!
Delicious and a great deal of serving for garlic shrimp meal and pasta. The macarons were good and perhaps worth the price of 50php but there were holes inside, not the best tho. Theur strawberry kitkat latte is not too sweet, based on my own sweet tolerance. 😂 Their space ambiance is good and cozy. They have common CR for both genders.

Experience the Borderless in Shanghai!
Teamlab Borderless in Shanghai is out of this world. As you walk into the unbounded world of light you can experience the visual impact of the amazing lights and shadows. It is a huge place and the screens too. It allows you to feel and engage in the scenes. Since it has a lot colorful lights it also makes you confuse finding the exit and the next room to view. Well, we even lost our track but that was fine. One of my favorites is where the white lights turn into pink and blue and then all of a sudden flash of lights. It was incredible. Once you are inside, it has a different feeling. It costs 498rmb for two. It is definitely worth to visit.

The Bund, Shanghai✨
Shanghai, China is the country's biggest city and a global financial hub. Its heart is the Bund, a famed waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings. Across the Huangpu River rises the Pudong district’s futuristic skyline. The area along the river faces the modern skyscrapers. The Bund has been one of the most recognizable symbols and the pride of Shanghai. The architecture along the Bund is a living museum of the colonial history of the 1800s. You've never been to Shanghai if you haven't seen the Bund. The best way to appreciate the buildings is to have a walk along the Bund. Roaming among the architectural complexes, you'll have a better understanding of the century-long charm of this city.

Youth Cultural Center Amerika-mura
Amerika-mura is an area just west of the Shinsaibashi shopping district that has for over 40 years been a well-known center of Japanese youth culture. Within this small area there are over 2,000 stores selling local and imported fashions, cafes, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Everything is centered on Sankaku Koen Park, a triangular concrete plaza and popular local hang-out where young people gather to show off their unique styles and discover the latest trends. Back in the 1960s the area was called Sumiyamachi (literally “Charcoal Shop Town”) and was mainly filled with warehouses, and lumber yards. Then one evening in 1969, a young interior designer named Mariko Higiri was sitting in Sankaku Koen drinking a can of coffee when she had a sudden brainwave. Wouldn’t it be great, she thought, to have a place where people could drink coffee till late at night? She decided to open her own café in a building just across from the park, and the café, called Loop, quickly began to gather young artists, designers, and other creative people. People began to convert the local warehouses into stores selling imported American goods.

Sumiyoshi Shrine Old Castle History
Sumiyoshi Taisha (Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine) predates the arrival of Buddhism in Japan and along with Izumo Taisha (taisha-zukuri) and the Ise Jingu (shinmei-zukuri) has its own style of architecture known as sumiyoshi zukuri, free of mainland Asian influences. The oldest buildings at Sumiyoshi Taisha date from 1810 and are painted in a dark red color. The roofs are straight (rather than curved in later styles) and made of thatch. Other features of sumiyoshi zukuri are the okichigi forked finials on the roof of the honden or main shrine and the five square billets (katsuogi) placed horizontally along the roof. The building is surrounded by a wooden fence or tamagaki. Other notable structures include a kagura hall, an arched bridge over a scenic pond known as Taiko bashi or Sorihashi, said to have been originally given to the shrine by Yodogimi, the lover of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and over 700 stone lanterns donated by seafarers and companies related to marine transport. In the Heian Period, Sumiyoshi Taisha was the recipient of imperial favor and patronage. It was from nearby Suminoe no Tsu that imperial embassies to China set sail and were joined on their voyages by the head priests of the shrine. Sumiyoshi Taisha is now a popular place for traditional Shinto marriage ceremonies and draws huge crowds of Osakans for the New Year hatsumode (first shrine visit of the year). There are hundreds of other Sumiyoshi shrines in Japan dedicated to the us who protect sailors, fishermen and those traveling on the sea.
