The one about feeding my wanderlust

Since I've been back to Manila, I haven't travelled as much as I would have liked. It's not as easy to just book that flight online and go, as it was while I was living in London. Flights there seemed so much cheaper, (more budget airlines with a wider range of destinations), more convenient, more affordable, and just overall easier.

Since I moved back here 2 years ago, I did however get to make it back to London for 3 weeks, Singapore, Egypt (!!!), SF and Macau. I know I have been blessed to have seen so many beautiful places, but I can't seem to curb this appetite for travel.

Right now, I've got the following trips booked and paid for (well all but the Mexico trip has been paid for):

May 11-14 - Boracay for friends' wedding (next week, woohoo!)

June 23-27 - Hanoi, Vietnam with some girlfriends (this is gonna be a hoot, it always is with this them!)

October - Mexico for my best friends' wedding , and a week in Las Vegas (with a stop over in Phoenix, AZ to visit Sheila, an old friend from school).

Feb. 9-12, 2007 - Kota Kinabalu with my newfound group that I travelled to Macau with. We had such a great time that we made a pact to travel together at least once a year on the 2nd week of February - our Macau trip anniversary.

Ok so far that's it. I can't afford any more trips until summer next year! Both financially and vacation leaves - wise.

Hi Christine! Saw your comment on my blog (meant for katrina really, not me). But I believe the auction site she was referring to for second hand books is Avalon. Happy reading! =)
