The Sweetest Escapes of 2016

So, 2016 is nearly over! What? Where did the time go? 

It has been a good year for this food and travel blog. I've been spontaneously productive, and honestly, I'm quite not ready to say goodbye to the magic 2016 has brought into my blogging routine. Magic or mojo or whatever you call it, I hope it's here to stay as I love doing this... blogging, sharing travel tips and making my readers happy!

Looking at my 2016 blog archive, I realize how this year was sprinkled with surprises. Most of the sweet escapes that we had were totally unexpected!

Join me in the memory trail, will you?

Sunset Stroll along Dubai Water Canal

Three years ago, I woke up to a news about the expansion of Dubai Creek that will make Bur Dubai an island. Then, last year, I realized it was slowly taking shape as Sheikh Zayed Road already has a bridge! And this year, my Facebook feed was flooded with updates on the mega-project that is now known as the Dubai Water Canal

The newest Dubai wonder was three years in the making. It was finally inaugurated last month with a BIG celebration... so big and so grand that they actually had to close a portion of Dubai's busiest highway during the ceremony!

I didn't get to witness the spectacular fireworks during the inauguration. In fact, life has been pretty busy that I only had the chance to see Dubai's latest attraction a month after it opened! I guess I'm the last person to visit Dubai Water Canal for the first time, but let me share my experience anyway! :)

7 kinds of People who will definitely love Armenia

Armenia is not in my 20 before 2020 travel list. In fact, I didn't know anything about the country two years ago! I first learned about its potential to be a good travel destination for Filipinos based in the UAE when a family member mentioned that she's heading there for a visa run, but it was only this year that I realized how gem of a country Armenia is!

During our 4-day travel in Armenia, I fell in love with its history, humility, strength and scenery! And I know 7 types of people who will feel the same way.
