HERE I COME MEDITERRANEAN!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are twenty one countries along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea such as Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. Which one should I visit to have an enjoyable and mind relaxing holiday?

I have checked with all the Mediterranean cruises that are available online and found Turkey to be quite interesting since the country sits mainly in Asia and partially in Europe. The Eastern Mediterranean cruises which focused on Italy, Greece, Turkey and cities along the Adriatic should be fun as I would also have ample time to visit those historical landmarks of Rome, Venice and Athens.

As a frequent seafarer, I would love to visit those beautiful ports and beaches that are available in the countries. I have heard so much and hope that I have the opportunity to visit Antalya, a city at the southwestern part of Turkey. The city on a cliff oversees the horizon of the Mediterranean Sea. What a great place for witnessing the sunrise and sunset in the city. I hope I can also get to visit Kas, a small fishing, yachting and tourist town and get some presents for my angling buddies.

I’m getting real excited now as I had booked my tickets with Costa Cruise Lines and my trip is scheduled to be in early January 2009. Hooray! Going for 11 days of cruise has always been my dream.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

MY DREAM HOLIDAY IN LAS VEGAS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although the major attractions in Las Vegas are the casinos, I’m more interested in experiencing the lifestyle of the 32nd most populated state of the USA. Can you imagine being in a place where there would be buildings lighted up every night time? One of the places I would love to visit would be the Fremont Street Experience which is a major tourist attraction and a pedestrian mall in down town Las Vegas, Nevada. Another place which would be interesting would be the Neon Museum which would display old neon signs of Las Vegas casinos as far back as 1940.

There would also be concerts and light shows occasionally. I hope I can get to see one and experience the millions of LED lighted canopy within the FSE. Now there are so many hotels with thousands of room in them for me to choose from. Which of these hotels should I choose? I guessed I would just chose one Vegas hotel that would suit my basic needs as I would surely be busy snapping shots of the surrounding area all the time.

I also found out that there would be the Neonopolis which would form the east end of the pedestrian mall, where Las Vegas Boulevard South meets Fremont Street. This is definitely a place I would visit. Who would want to miss out a $100 million open-air restaurant, shop and entertainment complex with a 14-screen Galaxy Theaters movie theater? As the date for my vacation is drawing nearer each day, I better start packing my luggage now for a fun-filled experience.

WHERE WOULD BE MY NEXT DESTINATION?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Believe or not, I have not even visited Bangkok yet although I have been staying within this region for many years. My next vacation destination should definitely be Bangkok as I can discover its inspiring beauty and endless charm. Bangkok is a place rich in cultural phenomenon, a shopping heaven for me who worship their latest fashion trend and a place where I can experience the taste of their culinary skills.

There are many splendid temples surrounding the city, including Wat Pho, the oldest and largest in Bangkok, which housed a 46 meters reclining Buddha as far back as the time of King Rama. On top of that, it would be a rare occasion where I can take some photos of the colorful floating market along the waterways, also known as “Venice of the East”. If time permits, I would not mind having some romantic moments in a dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River.

As for shopping, I surely won’t want to miss out the Siam Paragon and Central World, two of the biggest and most luxurious malls in South East Asia. Siam Square should be another great place to hang about for great bargains. I hope I have enough energy left after the shopping spree for their night entertainment. One prominent feature in the night life in Bangkok is that almost all the pubs and discos are having live band performances. That would be a great experience as most of time we have DJs only.

A visit to a foreign country for vacation won’t be complete if we do not try out their local delicacies. I for sure would want to try out their Tom Yam Kung (hot and sour seafood soup), Green Curry, Phat Thai (Thai-style fried noodles), Phat Kaphrao Mu (fried pork fried with basil leaves), Khao Niew Ma Muang (glutinous rice garnished with sweet coconut cream and ripe mango), Tub Tim Grob, etc. Gosh! My list will go on forever as I have always like Thai cuisine a lot.

Now I can’t stop myself from thinking about my next vacation. Who else to blame but myself for finding out too many interesting things to do in Bangkok? LOL! Anyway, I will need to check on the validity of my passport and also to get travel insurance for my trip. Bangkok! Here I come!

HOLIDAYS HERE I COME!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I must admit that not only I am a food gourmet; I am also a travel addict. I love to travel to different places around the world, by land, by air or even by cruises. What I am planning next would be a cruise to the Hawaiian Islands.  I have been checking out the different packages available through the internet and found out some great cruise deals.

Would you believe that I got the best offer for a 7-night cruise aboard the Pride of America? On top of enjoying my life aboard the floating resort with six different international restaurants, I will get to visit the many wonderful islands of Hawaii. Now I have to plan my time carefully as what activities I would like to spend more time on. Should I spend my time lazing around the beaches to enjoy the hospitality of the Hawaiians or I should go for a hike taking photos of the beautiful lush green foliages and waterfalls of the island? Maybe I will try my hands on catching a marlin as I had never had any experiences in getting one so far.

Since my wonderful package deal had already included shipboard accommodations, ocean transportation, fabulous entertainment and daily activities, on-board meals and some beverages, port charges and more, I should spent some on getting some gifts for my family and friends. I would think this is going to be one of my best vacations and I am looking forward to enjoying myself to the fullest. Who wants to join me for a fun-filled cruise vacation to the Hawaii?
