@lykishkeane Do you like visiting museums during your trips? Or your prefer just going outdoors?
.
.
Definitely a YES for me, especially if it’s an art museum ^_^
.
This was taken from HAKONE OPEN-AIR MUSEUM. It’s about an hour and a half away from Tokyo by Shinkansen (bullet train).
.
It features a lot of unique sculptures and one of its famous exhibition is this stained-glass tower (only the inside).
.
We decided to go here after I saw a picture of it in @instagram ^_^
.
If you like modern art, a long walk surrounded by lush greeneries, and you want to getaway from Tokyo, then this is the place for you ^_^

@lykishkeane What’s the NO.1 thing you always bring with you to survive the SUMMER HEAT?
.
.
For me it’s an umbrella ☂
.
My Western co-workers don’t understand why I used it during sunny days, even my husband.
.
It’s a norm in the Philippines because the umbrella ☂ helps lessen direct heat from the sun and also to avoid getting TANNED.
.
Many Filipinos desire a fairer or whiter skin, because they think it’s “prettier.”
.
ANYWAYS...,
.
.
This summer, Japan’s biggest “Umbrella Sky” project is in Hannou, Saitama’s lakeside forest― Metsä Village (メッツァビレッジ).
.
Around 1000 multi-colored umbrellas hang at its forest entrance to the lake, giving its visitors a rainbow-like pathway. This exhibition is open from June 8- July 15 and was inspired by Portugal’s “Umbrella Sky” in 2012.

@lykishkeane What is the thing you WISH the most?
.
.
For me, it’s having GOOD health 💙
.
When I was younger, I never really cared about that. I was drinking all day with my friends and I smoked a lot.
.
Now, I’ve stopped smoking. It’s not easy. I still crave it from time to time, but I try to resist it.
.
.
So this was taken from SHIFEN OLD STREET, where you can write your wishes on the lanterns and then fly them. It was really fun!!! But I’m also concerned how they deal with the lantern when it finally has decided to fall???
.
I hope it was cleaned up >_<
.
Anyways, the only thing that ANNOYED us (especially my husband) was the person who took our picture, who was a one of the staff where we got our lantern, was making us do AWKWARD POSES and will make us do it anyways even if we say we don’t want to xD
.
And apparently they did the same to @in.jinna when she went there xD

@lykishkeane Do you prefer QUANTITY over taking your time when traveling?
.
.
Before I used to do that, but now I take time to take good pictures or just simply savour the moment of getting to know a place.
.
This was taken from HACHIMAN-BORI  in Shiga Prefecture. I wanted to visit this place because RUROUNI KENSHIN was shot here. If you’ve seen my story couple of days ago, I posted a movie clip of it in my story 😉

@lykishkeane Have you visited a place because it was featured in a movie/animation/show?
.
.
Definitely a YES for me!
.
This shot was taken from Jiufen, where the “bathhouse” from SPIRITED AWAY(a Ghibli animation movie) was inspired from! And being a fan of Ghibli movies, I immediately added this place in out itinerary.
.
Just a WARNING: it can get very crowded! The way going up is narrow; hence, it may be very difficult to get a decent shot! We were lucky to be able to get to a cafe (we didn’t get the name sorry 😐), where we have a nice view. .
When we finished, we saw that the cafe closed the way to their entrance because a lot of people wanted to go in or just want take pictures.
.
We were lucky 🍀

@lykishkeane Have you been to Disneyland? When and which was the first one you visited?
.
.
This was taken around May 2014 in Tokyo Disneyland. It was my first time going to Disney so I was very excited!
.
Japan has two Disneylands, Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea.
.
I like DISNEY SEA more because the rides are more exciting. It’s more for “grown-ups.” My students even told me that they serve “alcohol” there, which I DID NOT KNOW 😆

@lykishkeane What is the most PHOTOGENIC place you’ve been to?
.
.
France is definitely on my list!
.
When we went to Paris, I wanted to takes photos everywhere 🤩🤩🤩 It felt like I was in a movie! I have never imagined I will be able to set foot on the land of “cheese and wine.” 😂
.
For you see, I have a Filipino passport, which is one of the weakest😩
.
But I got my Schengen VISA and was able to enjoy the sights of Paris,Bordeaux, and Dresden (Germany) ❤️✨DREAMS DO COME TRUE✨
.
I hope I could visit Prague next time❤️

@lykishkeane What’s your favorite color?
.
.
It’s quite recent, but YELLOW, MUSTARD, and GOLD are the colors I’m really fond of, hence my “golden theme” this past few weeks.
.
I just love how this color looks on my tan skin and how vibrant it is. Moreover, I still like color BROWN and I think it matches well with yellow 💛💛💛💛

@lykishkeane Have you experienced hotel staffs go out of their way to HELP you out?
.
.
For me it happened at the beginning of this month when we stayed at Subic Bay MANSION GARDEN HOTEL 🏨 for 3 days.
.
The morning of our last day, I asked for a car to drive us to the airport (3 hours away) at 11pm. The STAFF confirmed my requests and told us he’ll look for it.
.
We were supposed to take the bus but my partner got sick, so we want to travel as comfortable as we can.
.
On the night we checked-out, I asked the receptionist (not the one i previously talked to) where’s the CAR I asked for, she said that there weren’t any notes nor was informed about it.
.
In my head I was panicking because we can’t miss our flight!! 😰 She then asked the other staff if he knows any driver available to drive us to the airport in Manila.
.
They were both calmed and made us feel assured that we will be OKAY 👌 .

It was already 12 am and finally they got a driver for us. We managed to arrive to the airport on time! 😁
.
.
I highly recommend to stay in MANSION GARDEN HOTEL if you travel to Subic Bay, Philippines. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating; close to bars, mall, and restaurants; have a nice buffet breakfast (both Filipino and continental food); nice pool, and affordable price!

@lykishkeane Have you visited a place that you’ve only seen on Instagram?
.
.
For me, it’s definitely a YES!
.
I discover a lot of places in this platform that I want to visit one day. Hence, my bucket list is growing longer and longer 🤪
.
A lot of my friends have visited Taiwan and saw their wonderful IG posts about it! As a result, it triggered the wanderlust inside me to explore Taiwan myself 🧡

@lykishkeane What was the fanciest meal you’ve ever had?
.
.
I grew up in a 3rd World Country. We weren’t very poor, but my family did struggle especially when we were kids.
.
Sometimes, we will eat rice and MIX IT with coffee or instant noodles and that’s our meal. RICE IS LIFE 😁
.
So when I went to France and ate at some of its fancy restaurants, I remember those struggling days. It made me very thankful and blessed.
.
.
This shot was taken at @smithhautlafitte after our lovely meal at La Table du Lavoir ❤️ I really like its cozy and rustic ambiance.

@lykishkeane Do you prefer group or private tour, or on your own?
.
.
When we went to Taiwan 🇹🇼 we just hired a PRIVATE DRIVER thru @ownrides . It has good reviews and we wanted to book something secure and a driver that could speak English.
.
JEFF, our driver, was there to JUST drive us around , but he did more than that. He told us interesting infos about the places we visited and took us to photo-worthy spots!
.
And this is ONE of those places. It’s rarely visited by tourists because they go directly to YEHLIU GEOPARK. I don’t know what’s its callee but it’s maybe around 15 mins away on foot from the geopark.
.
It’s small but it also has interesting yellow rock formations and this one looks like an old dwelling place ^_^

@lykishkeane Is Bali on your bucket list?
.
.
This was shot a year ago and it was our second day in Bali. Our first day was just walking around UBUD and relaxing in our gorgeous villa in @dwarakavillas ❤️❤️❤️
.
We decided to go to Pura Besakih because it’s not too crowded. We we got here around afternoon, but it was CLOUDY so we weren’t able to see the sunset much xD

@lykishkeane Got Milk?
.
Recently, my tummy has been a bit sensitive with MILK. I am sad that I can’t drink or eat a lot of stuff with it anymore 😢 But, SOMETIMES I still do, but it’s a risk. .
.
Are you lactose intolerant? What are your challenges when eating during your travels?
.
.
This beautiful cafe is located at the Songshan Cultural and Creative in Taiwan 🇹🇼 It’s the perfect place for BIBLIOPHILES ❤️❤️❤️ They have a lot of books you could read while you drink tea or coffee 🥰

@lykishkeane What’s the most breathtaking NATURAL WONDER you’ve been to?
.
.
For me it’s YEHLIU Geopark! It’s actually the reason why I wanted to visit TAIWAN (and also Philippine passport is VISA exempted until July 2019 so I made sure to go here before that period😁)
.
It looked so surreal! Like it’s from a different planet! I’ve never seen anything like this in my life!
.
However, these natural structures are changing over time. They are getting smaller 😞 So, the staff there are quite strict with the visitors. .
They will warn you if you sit, jump,or step onto the stone formations.
.
You might think it’s not a big deal, but simple actions like these can help to their rapid deterioration.
.
So please be careful and so our future generations could still marvel this wondrous gem ❤️

@lykishkeane Do you like doing crafts during your travels?
.
.
For us, we do! It’s a great way to get a souvenir! That “trinket” is not just something you bought, it’s an “experience.”
.
We book a CHOPSTICK making class in Taiwan 🇹🇼 through KKDAY. It only cost 1,823 yen (per person). Our instructor didn’t speak much English but he tried to communicate using  a bit of English and clearly demonstrated the procedure. He was patient and friendly.
.
This workshop is held by CARPENTER Wooden Craft Workshop and it’s located at ESLITE SPECTRUM Songshan Store (few minutes away from Songshan Cultural and Creative Park).
.
If you want to see how I made this chopsticks 🥢 visit my Taiwan 🇹🇼 highlights ^_^

@lykishkeane Do you like “artsy” streets?
.
.
For me, it’s definitely YES! Hence, that’s why I like going to Koenji. It’s a street somewhere in Tokyo where you could find cafes, shops,bars, and restaurants that have interesting themes/ decoration.
.
I actually don’t know what this shop is, but I took a photo here just because I like the color YELLOW💛💛💛 .

@lykishkeane When we were planning our trip to Taiwan, I was considering of not including SHIFEN in our itinerary. But, it was on our way to Juifen so We decided to stopped by. .
It was a nice little town and our private driver took us to a restaurant that served delicious Xia Long Bao (which is on my IG highlights) and this bridge.
.
There was a lot of people so we decided not to get a wide shot. This was still a nice snap though 🥰
