The succeeding posts will be about how I went about my planning the trips and the travel itself. Hope I am able to inspire and help other people who are in the same boat as we are.
I had started writing blogs before, but never really continued writing them. I would start and then I would fade into the anonymous internet, ending up living vicariously through somebody else’s Facebook posts. This one, I am hopefully committed to follow through. As our family is now living overseas: my husband and I as overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and our children are living with us here. Continue reading “My Rationale for 2+3 Travels”
So yes, it was a getaway, as we only went for three days.

I know, I know. Five months too late. But I still have the pictures so I can still post them here. Just holler in the comments if you have questions about these places. I will try and answer them as best as I can (or remember)!

The library in Topkapi Palace had this gate in front. You could see some of the manuscripts on display, but not really read them. Looks like a glorified birdcage, really.
We were supposed to visit Budapest next month, but my eldest has a problem with her travel consent (complicated and uninteresting). Scheduling for an appointment now would mean about a month and half waiting period to secure an appointment. The earliest we can do it is in September, so we have no choice but to move the trip during our fall break. Continue reading “Fall Break Trip Planning: Getting our Schengen Visa”
