Being Filipino, I have to get visas to countries that I want to visit every so often. This time, it’s Georgia. It’s a good thing the Georgian government made it so easy to apply for one. Applying for one is different from actually getting one though.
Before going through with applying for an eVisa, buy yourself some travel insurance here. You won’t be issued an eVisa without one.

My husband and I live in the UAE, and it was time to go for a vacation in the Philippines. After a short stay with his family in Cebu, we decided to take a ferry to Dapitan City, then take a bus to Zamboanga City.
We booked tickets for the trip a day before. Unlike plane tickets, passenger ship tickets don’t change by the minute, so it’s actually okay to even buy the tickets on the same day, as long as it’s not fully booked. We booked ours for PhP 950 apiece with Cokaliong Shipping Lines in the Tourist class. For your reference, here’s the chart of rates from Cokaliong Shipping Lines’ website.
When you are an Overseas Filipino Worker, you find ways to keep yourself entertained, be not lonely and just live life. Some Filipinos choose to stay put, watch Tagalog telenovelas/movies online, some go malling with friends on their days off, some choose to stay at home and sleep the day away, and some choose to visit their friends and have drinking and singing sessions.
If you didn’t know Filipinos, you should know that Filipinos looove their booze and singing. 😂
We, on the other hand, take road trips. And the junk food that come with them. 😜
A couple of months ago, I was on vacation in the Philippines. And no vacation in the Philippines is complete without a trip to the beach. When I was a kid, my father would take us to the beach on Sundays. He’d wake us at around 5am, and if we didn’t get up, he’d just haul us to the jeepney and let us sleep until we get to the beach. I actually miss that.
Anyway, it just didn’t feel right that I was in Cebu, home to a number of white sand beaches and I was not in any one of them at the moment. So I got in contact with my cousin and asked her if she wanted to go on a trip to Aloguinsan. We still had a few days til her days off and started planning.
We planned for an overnight trip, but on the day before our trip, we found out that they were changing shifts, which meant she’ll only get one day off for this week.
It was a good thing nothing was booked. 😅
