Antwerp Chocolate Week

Antwerp Chocolate Week

 

Antwerp Chocolate week is an event that goes on for about 10 days wherein you can visit several participating chocolate stores. You can exchange any of your 10 vouchers for chocolates offered in store. Some stores lets you choose and some stores have it already packed. Locally this event is known as “Antwerpen Week van de Chocolade” and for 2018, it goes from March 2-11. It’s a very short window of time. I was supposed to do it with a friend last Saturday but we didn’t have enough time so I decided to do it after class today.

Cebu City Tour

Cebu City Tour

Cebu City is the queen city of the South in the Philippines. It’s the second biggest Metropolitan area in the Philippines. It is the first Spanish settlement in the country making it the oldest city. It has a lot of history. In this Cebu City Tour, we went to visit the Old Fort which is pictured above. We also went to see Magellan’s cross, not the original of course but a representation of it. We also saw some old churches.

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

I chose Best Western Plus Cebu because it was reasonably priced including breakfast and it was centrally located. The Cebu Ferry Terminal is only 3 kilometers away. There are also a lot of restaurants around the area. In fact, there is a McDonald next door. The rooms look great and the breakfast was nice. Looking back, I wish we had stayed on Mactan Island although the hotels there are much more expensive. I hope this Best Western Cebu Plus Review gives you an insight on what it’s like to stay in this hotel.

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar is a cozy bar by the pool and the beach at South Palms Resort. We mostly had lunch here but we also had dinner once when we thought the main restaurant was a bit noisy. Prices are expensive. We love the colorful tables and chairs strewn around the bar. The decor is really fun and chic. I think they share the same menu with the Oceania restaurant which is the main restaurant of the resort. They are open almost all day except for breakfast serving lunch, dinner and in between drinks or snacks.

Bohol Countryside Tour

Bohol Countryside Tour

The Bohol Countryside Tour is a must do when you go to Bohol. You can do this in many ways by arranging it with a travel agency or your hotel. If you would like to go the DIY route, I’ve seen some people rent motorbikes to see the island. We rented a car with a driver for the two of us. It can actually fit 4 people. If there are more people in your group, vans are also available.
