OFF TO LEGOLAND!

If there’s one thing I want to do right now that is to yell my heart out riding a roller coaster, not just any other coaster but the Coastersaurus at Legoland, yes the ones in Florida. If some wish to scream their throats off Walt Disney coasters, I’d like to do mine at Legoland. Since the moment I officially knew there’s this kind of bricks where you can build anything you can possibly imagine out of it, I began thinking wow, suppose there will be a place where practically everything on it is build with Lego bricks – that’ll be awesome.

True enough, build with more than 50 million Lego bricks a fantasy land, known as Legoland came into reality – with countless rides and figures made from lego bricks around this fancy land, I wonder what my reaction would be, I have this inkling that it’ll be like someone standing woozy in the middle of the street rolling her eyes in all possible direction, I think that’s forgivable given it’s going to be my first time.

But seriously, if you’re planning a trip to Florida and want to experience Legoland, you can stay or book for Orlando Hotels and take a 45-minute ride to Winter Haven to enjoy this toyland and if time is of the essence and you want to maximize your stay you can check out ‘Things to do in Orlando’ on Facebook to check on some great adventures while on your vacation.

I’m going to work on this that’s for sure!

VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE SISTINE CHAPEL

She who can’t travel abroad as often as she wanted must find a way to at least have a glimpse of the place she wanted to see even virtually, hence, my find on this virtual tour that led me to the world’s most historic chapel, The Sistine Chapel, found right at the heart of the seat of Catholicism – The Holy See.

I won’t describe to you anymore how happy I was I’ve seen the inside virtually and how sad I’ve been to have not experienced yet the feel inside this chapel, hence, my adjectives aren’t as sharp as those who have felt goosebumps while walking and rolling their eyes around here, but even then, I’ve experienced that virtual feel of how its like to be in a place where the works of the Renaissance artists including that of Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio and many more come real and existent.

SWIMMING POOL AT THE JAPANESE TUNNEL – DAVAO

It was raining on the morning of Jan 14, it was cold and damp but my son insisted on going to the Japanese Tunnel in Balusong, Matina as he made a promise to his classmate to attend her birthday. I was hesitant to send him because of the unpleasant weather; I’m too guarded when it comes to situation like this because of the flooding that happened to Davao City months back, but his father sent off a go signal so I didn’t contest anymore.

D’ Japanese Tunnel Family Resort and Restaurant is located in Matina Balusong, Diversion Road, Davao City. It’s one of the historical sites turned tourist spot in Davao City.


There’s an outdoor pool,  hotel and restaurant just in case you may want to spend time with your family and friends a little away from the city. [that's my son enjoying the pool alone]

And of course the main attraction why it was named so is this .. this is the entrance to the tunnel, the tunnel spanned about 300 meters long, there are replicas of Japanese soldiers and a Buddha inside this tunnel, other than those there’s nothing much to see, ah, the tourist guide that since my first visit still blabs the same spiel. I wish the owner can research more substantial info on what has been during those fateful Japanese days.
