I apologize for the inactivity of this blog. And my inactivity to read blogs on my part. I can’t promise to boost it up, but I will, eventually, get to my posts and your blog in time.
I wanna thank everyone who has given recognitions especially from the last couple days. I truly appreciate all the acknowledgements.
I cannot possibly list all of it. I also thought of including the best this and that or the worst this and that, but it’s just too much for me to handle. So… Here are just some of my travel whoa’s and woes that are most apparent amongst all the places I’ve been to.
- WOE: When we were visited Neuschwantein Castle, there’s a 2-hour wait to get in. So, booking is a must!
WHOA: This real-world fairytale castle is truly magnificent. Plenty of photo-op just outside it. Germany? In one word, BEER. -
Notable WHOA when it comes to waiting in line: Sistine Chapel – plenty of tourists who want to see it. The line is always long but it considerably is always moving.
- WHOA: Venice Beach is one of a sure-fire top California travel recommendation of mine.
WOE: I paid over $50 after getting a parking ticket. California parking is awful. Venice Beach is the worst. Like I said before, bring dollar bills, mind your parking time limit, or paying set high price parking lot space is better than getting a ticket. -
Notable WHOA for parking: Research exactly where. Santa Monica – 90 min. free. Beverly Hills (Rodeo Dr.) – Free.
WHOA: Monterey Bay is, not an iota of doubt, one of the best aquariums in the world.
WOE: I did a little research. I found out that it really has an expensive admission in the world, if not the most considering the size and number of sea animals compared to other aquariums. A whopping $37 total with tax.
NOTABLE WHOA: Baluarte Zoo in Philippines
WHOA: People always say about travel destinations that “there’s plenty of things to see and do“. Las Vegas multiplies that statement. The Strip is a no holds barred entertainment, adventure and sightseeing getaway street. WOE: Being less restricted, public intoxication, prostitution, illegal drugs and such are observed but undisturbed by law.
Notable WHOA: Balboa Park is huge for someone to not have anything to do. Get there, and you’ll be guaranteed to find something that suits your interest.
WHOA: Why then did Survivor choose Caramoan as their set location?
WOE: It’s so hard to get there! Plus, you pay a lot of unexpected additional fees.
NOTABLE WOE when it comes to worst transport experience: Driving in snow is dangerous. When we had our drive to Roccarasso, Italy, cars were slipping and sliding. Some cars had to completely stop at the side of the road. We were doing great with ours but it was still nerve-wracking. I was afraid our van would slip or get hit by the other cars.
NOTABLE WHOA when it comes to roadside views: California
NOTABLE WHOA for the water: Sorry Coastal California, this down here is the best … Virgin Island in Bohol, Philippines …
WOE: There’s plenty of complains and negative feedback about Naples. They have a never-ending issue on garbage disposal. Scams, pick-pockets and thefts, house and car break-ins is a matter of course. Traffic is horrible. Parking is tight. Italians drive like they always have pizza in the oven to attend to. The whole Neapolitan social behavior and attitude and way of living are just not the most pleasant and are distasteful according to some other cities and Italian folks who despise it.
WHOA: You can sight in a good view of my beloved, iconic Mt. Vesuvius from Naples. Also, Pizza Margherita is the original pizza and is home to Naples.
NOTABLE WOE: Leaning Tower of Pisa – I just think it’s overrated. But, it’s so nice to know that you’ve traveled it if you did see it.
NOTABLE WHOA for the best city: ROME
