Pinoy in Rajasthan - My unforgettable visits to Jaipur and Amber

Jaipur - Amber Fort window details bwI've seen Jaipur in many movies so seeing it upclose is like seeing a movie star in person. And I was star struck.

The grandeur of Jaipur's magnificent past is like a scene of right out of a fairy tale. I think magical is the right word.

Pinoy in Agra - My wonderful visit to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort

Agra - Taj Mahal front_ bwIt is true what they say. Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful buildings ever built. From afar and close up, this building is made to impress and to be loved.

For me, it is a dream come true and I am so grateful for the experience. A trip to the Agra Fort was a bonus.

Pinoy in India - My memorable travels to Bangalore

Bangalore - Tuk tuk bwI recently traveled to Bangalore for work but I set aside time to see the city during my spare time. I was determined not to go to Bangalore and not see Bangalore.

What I saw was a neat, liveable, trendy and green city. I heart BLR!

Pinoy in Texas - Back in Austin

Austin - Austin mural bwMy second time to travel to Austin for work. I only had Saturday as the only free day to see Austin so I took advantage of mornings and evening during the week.

I enjoyed Austin by exploring coffee shops near where our Austin office is at. I also took a Segway tour this time.

Pinoy in Argentina - My travels to Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires - Ave 9 de Julio ObeliscoCharming. I'd like to use that word to describe Buenos Aires. The old buildings, the boulevards, the open spaces and Tango. They are all charming.

Follow this Filipino guy as he takes you around the "Paris of the South" through his pictures and his travelogues.

Pinoy in Chile - My travels to Santiago, Viña del Mar, Valparaiso and Maipo Valley

Santiago - Cerro San Cristobal skyline bwThe view from Cerro San Cristobal gives Santiago a spread out look but the city is surprisingly walkable. Thanks to its very good urban planning, there are under ground highways, subway trains, lots of green areas, and picturesque side walks. 

To me, Santiago is the epitome of the romantic old and the modern new.
