I’ve always known that my country, the Philippines, is a piece of paradise on earth. But it was only a few years ago when I started working and earning my own money that I realized that my home country is truly unlike any other place. The more I traveled, the more I discovered the beauty of the Philippines. The British Magazine Wanderlust pays £220 per 1000 words and their fact pages offer a remuneration of £90 per 750 words.

Take a toy dog and put it into the crate you are going to use for travel. Now twist it to the left and then to the right, raise the front and then raise the back. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DOG INSIDE??? Yes, it got bounced from the left to the right and then the front to the rear. During slight turbulence or even upon landing, that crate could get really bounced around and your sedated dog would be just like the toy. Can you imagine, having no way to control your body as it is thrown about the crate!!!

Now that my new passport has arrived, I’m looking into getting a 3-month travel visa. I know you can get one upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or at a number of land border points of entry, but I’d like to be able to take care of this ahead of time if possible. So I called the Embassy of Nepal in Washington, D.C. at 202-667-4550 and left a message, since no one was available at the time. I’ll try calling again in a couple of hours.
It’s a good idea, at the very least, to know where you’ll be staying in each city you stop in before you arrive. I rarely booked reservations for accommodations more than a week in advance, and rarely for more than one or two nights. That way, if I didn’t like the place I was staying I wasn’t locked in for a longer stay, and if I enjoyed the place I could usually extend my stay.
