Waterloo Bridge - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-100
As many of you may know, I work as a travel agent as my day job. I do plan trips for other people for a living and I of course feel more confident if I personally know the person I’m planning the trip for. My Aunt visited me from the Philippines and I started planning her holiday months in advance, she doesn’t even have her UK visa yet and I already had a final itinerary for her. A bit about my Aunt, sh

Chasing Autumn Colors In The USA: An Autumn Drive Itinerary

December 3, 2017
Skyline Drive - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-118
I’ve never experienced the four seasons until recently, VERY recently. I grew up in the Philippines and moved to the Middle East afterwards – both places only had two seasons so I never get to experience the complete change of your natural surroundings 4 times in a year. When I left Dubai in 2014, I spent about 6 months in the US – I experienced a bit of summer, the entire autumn and a bit of wint

The highlight of our recent holiday in the US was our stay in the beautiful Omni Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. While The Greek Mister and I were planning for our US autumn drive before our holidays, choosing which hotel to stay in as we break our drive was probably the most stressful for us. There were so many grand hotels to stay in for every budget but it was the stunning photos of the Omni Homestead which

To My Sister, On Her Wedding Day.

November 20, 2017
I attended my sister’s beautiful wedding last month in Maryland. I was supposed to be one of the bridesmaids but I decided against it, anything about formal affairs just isn’t for me. Hate is a strong word but it’s the best description of how I feel about formal affairs – family or not. This is why my own wedding was small and intimate, I can’t handle being the center of attention for

It’s been more than a month since my last post and I think it’s the longest that I haven’t updated this blog since I started it. I went on a holiday in the US and unlike any other holidays that I’ve taken in the past, my blog wasn’t involved in any part of it. No sponsorship nor complimentary services in exchange of a blog post or a social media update. For the first time in years, I t

Greenwich Day Trip Itinerary

October 8, 2017
Greenwich - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-202
Greenwich is one my favorite boroughs in London, there’s something about the wide open spaces and the beautiful architecture of the buildings around Greenwich which I find so charming. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m definitely not a city girl which made the small town look of Greenwich so endearing for me. I’ve been meaning to do a Greenwich day trip itinerary for quite a long time now but it was only last w
