Romania: The medieval city of Sighisoara
Sighisoara is found in Romania’s Transylvania and is the birth place of Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler or simply Dracula. Don’t worry this place is far from creepy because if you still don’t know yet, Vlad is a human prince and not a vampire (I think).
Antalya: Ruins of Termessos
The ruins of Termessos is probably one of my favorite among the many in Turkey. For one it’s very much a ruin – nothing has been restored (or at least nothing looks to be). And second the view is fantastic! Although it is set on top of a mountain outside the city of Antalya, spending half day is enough to see the ancient city.
How Filipinos can travel in Turkey for 30 days instead of 15 (Turkish e-visa)
In a gist the e-visa means us Filipinos can stay in Turkey for 30 days provided that we have a supporting document (i.e. a valid OECD or Schengen visa). I didn’t have this but I realized it was easier to secure one rather than the traditional Turkish sticker visa so I went to the one that gives out the fastest – in my case it was Japan.
Beijing: Mutianyu Great Wall
Beijing, The Great Wall. Walk up to the highest point tower 23 for a nice view. She tells us this as we drive on a sunny Friday morning to the Mutianyu section of the wall. What we didn’t know was that from tower 14 it was going to be a test of strength to tower 23. It took us around two hours back and forth I think. Difficult but doable.
