How To Enjoy Summer Vacation Alone

Many people believe that taking a vacation is like having a therapy in life. It's like changing one's outlook in life through leisure and travel. In that sense, the main purpose of enjoying a vacation is to unwind and take a break from your daily activities. But what if you're all alone and still want to enjoy summer? Here are a few things to remember in enjoying a solo travel during summer.

Plan your vacation. This is the best time to take a list of all the things that you want to do. Choose the best place to visit during summer. Participate in travel and tours programs organized by other people for all those who love to travel. In some cases, riding a rented bus just like those offered by Manila Bus Rentals Philippines companies is a very interesting activity. Don't forget to research about popular travel destinations while preparing for the trip.


Prepare your things ahead of time. The main reason to prepare your things in advance is to make sure that you have packed everything for the trip. Remember that you're travelling alone and you don't have someone to share things while on the road. Make sure that all the items listed in your list have been thoroughly checked. Aside from that, it will also help you save a lot of money by having all things packed in your bag.

Bring extra money, clothing and medicine. During travel for a vacation, there are untoward incidents that cannot be avoided. All you have to do is to be prepared all the time. Take proper medication in case you need to take something for a good health. Bring extra t-shirt for swimming activities. Have extra cash in your wallet just in case you'll need it on the road. Be ready for emergencies and other unavoidable circumstances.

Book your plane tickets and accommodation in advance. Why do you need to book your plane tickets and accommodation in advance? It's simple. You can save a lot of money because promos are usually offered three to five months before your travel period.

By the way, don't forget to be friendly. Even if you're alone, it doesn't mean that you'll be lonely in visiting a new place. Enjoy your trip!

The Things That Changed Me This Summer

How are you dear readers? It's time for me to update my blog because I really missed doing this.

I know that I wasn’t able to post an update in this blog for a long time. Now, I would like to share the reason. I’d like also to talk about some things that will inspire you. I’m so sure of that.

I got a job that I really liked, so I tried taking it on until the last week of training, since I decided to stop for some reasons. It was very challenging knowing that it isn’t the usual job that I do. It was hard because I have to deal with people who are not aware of the way I was trained back in the academe and that it was totally different. It was life changing because I met a lot of people who love the job dearly that they’re able to do it for more than three years.

As for me, I found out that it’s not just really for me; it’s also affecting my plans. Even if I really liked it, I had to stop. When I was still on training, I think about my blog, the usual things that I do and I think about having a vacation at Mount Sea Resort in Cavite. I think about swimming, hiking and playing with my dog, Enzo. Suddenly, I realized that I was trapped in a job that doesn’t fit my personality. Even if I’ll pass all the tests that they’ll give us, I won’t make it for long. I know.


But I’m really grateful for the experience. It gave me a wider perspective of life. I had a chance to look things differently now. It really doesn’t matter who you are in the first place, it’s how you balance things out. If you think you’re an expert on something, you should share your knowledge in a humble way so as not to hamper the learning process of the one that you’re teaching. If you’re trying hard to learn the trick and trade of things, make sure to deal with people in a positive way. If it’s too much, don’t be afraid to assess things for your own good. There are other options anyway. It’s not true that you don’t have other chances.


I think it is not proper to set your expectations too high on a person who has trodden a different world no matter how good he or she is. I’m talking about a person who took another skill on purpose for a change.

Anyway, I just enjoyed a wonderful lunch after I’ve decided to stop training. It was a time to be free from something so wonderful yet challenging. All I have to do is to find another job and learn from the experience.
