Turkey Tourist Visa Application for Filipinos in Dubai

At the time of writing, Ed and I are living the life of Fred and Wilma Flintstone in a homey cave room at Kelebek Special Cave Hotel in Cappadocia. Yes, we are in Turkey! :) 

Flashback to three weeks ago, this Turkey trip was merely a dream we hope to fulfill.  It was a foggy Monday morning when we made our way to the Consulate General of Turkey at the 8th floor of Dubai World Trade Center to secure a much-needed document for this sweet escape – a Turkish tourist visa stamped on our Philippine passports.

Peruvian Dinner at the Garden in JW Marriot Marquis

Tucked in the 5th level of the world's tallest hotel is an authentic Peruvian restaurant that has just been launched recently. I missed the grand opening celebration sad to say, but I'm glad that I had the chance to try out the much-talked about vibrant Peruvian cuisine at the Garden during our anniversary staycation at JW Marriot Marquis last week.

I haven't been to Peru, yet the thought of dining at the Garden excites me. A good friend, blogger Doc Gelo, just came back from South America with wonderful travel stories hence it was a joy to have a little taste of the Peruvian cuisine and culture he has been talking about.
