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

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

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

A Day Tour in Winchester Virginia.

December 22, 2014
Last Thursday, I asked my mother if she’d like to go with me to explore the Old Town of Winchester Virginia. I only have a few days left in the US and I’d like to see as many places as I can and would love to spend my time as well with my Mom so dragging her out on a day tour is the best solution to do both. 🙂 I am no city girl, that I know for sure. I’d rather live in a small, old and quaint l

Things To Do in DC: Take a hike at the Great Falls

November 21, 2014
Great Falls
Being only 45-min away, Great Falls in Maryland and Virginia is a great day out from Washington DC. The only downside is, Great Falls is not at all near to any public transportation routes so you really have to have your own car to get there. It is absolutely worth it though. My sister who is very familiar with the place took us to the Great Falls’ Maryland side. There’s an entrance fee of USD5 per ve

Things To Do in DC: Visit George Washington’s Hometown Alexandria, Virginia

November 7, 2014
Alexandria, Virginia
One of the many things that I love about DC is its centralized location and the easy access it gives you to explore the nearby states and old towns. Alexandria in Virginia State is just one of the many places that you can visit from DC and I will have to add that it’s also a favorite of mine. If you have your own car rental, Alexandria, Virginia is a mere 15-minute drive from Washington DC which makes it rea
