Chasing Autumn Colors In The USA: An Autumn Drive Itinerary

December 3, 2017
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

November 26, 2017
Omni Homestead - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-173
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

Where To Eat in Greencastle, Pennsylvania: Mrs Gibbles Restaurant

August 10, 2015
Mrs Gibble's Restaurant
I love supporting local businesses wherever I go. I think whatever their business is, you always get a personalized service and not a generic one which you’d probably receive from big companies most of the time. That is the case when we had our lunch at Mrs Gibbles Restaurant in Greencastle, Pennsylvania. It was my last full day at my Mom’s so they decided to take me out for lunch. They know that I̵

Things To Do in West Virginia: Flat Water Tubing at The Shenandoah River.

July 31, 2015
Tubing in Shenandoah River
I’m not the outdoorsy type of person, as some of you may have noticed by now. My idea of a perfect vacation is to sit by the beach with a cocktail in hand and a harem of cabana boys with washboard abs at my disposal. (Yeah right!) But that’s not to say that I don’t welcome some change and having spent quite a long time in the East Coast of the USA where outdoor activities are abundant, I now think

Things To Do in Virginia: Discover The Subterranean World of Luray Caverns

July 26, 2015
Luray Caverns
Luray Caverns is one of the most celebrated and largest caves in the US which goes beneath the earth’s surface upto 16 stories deep. Discovered in 1878 by local men who were, at the time, looking for places which they can promote as a tourist destination in the area. I think its discovery must have felt like seeing a pot of gold for them as it definitely is something to be revered. We arrived at Luray Caver

Philadelphia In 12 Hours Part 2

July 22, 2015
Philadelphia City Hall
I fell in love with Philadelphia the first time I went there so I felt like I needed to go back there on my second visit to the US. I know, I know! I said that I will stay there for a longer time on my next visit however, I am once again constrained in time. I fell sick during this holiday of mine which had a huge effect on my travel plans. So once again, I had only about 12 hours to spare to see what Philadelphia
