While a lot of countries all over the world are planning and maybe still adapting with technology, Japan just had it all figured out. They are way ahead and they are the exact definition of the “FUTURE.” I maybe exaggerating but, I was there, I saw it, I experienced it firsthand. It amazes me to think what else in this world of technology could they be cooking up, Artificial Intelligence perhaps? But seriously, who knows what’s next?
Do you have any idea how amazing the internet works? Well, I’m an IT guy but am still amazed of how broad and smart the internet is. I have no idea about Enoshima and Kamakura at first and I only remember Google-ing places to visit in Japan near Tokyo when suddenly, Facebook is recommending places and showing me all sorts of things I need to know and go to when in Tokyo. Not sure if I make any sense, but yes! I found a must-visit area where you are surrounded with waters, beautiful landscapes, temples, food and definitely away from the hustle and bustle Tokyo and its skyscrapers.
I crave food, but I also crave space and sometimes we just really need to go off on our own. My travel this time is a whole lot different from my previous ones because I am not just flying out to a local destination, but I am actually beginning my journey in pursuing solo travel and I am going to set it off with Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun.
The Ruins. It’s the first thing that comes to my mind whenever I hear of Bacolod City, which is often referred as the City of Smiles. I have come to ask why is it that I rarely see people smiling? The locals really need to live up with its slogan. LOL. Nevertheless, this city without a doubt left a big smile on my face as I tick off this place on my travel bucket list.
I didn’t know what to feel when I got a prompt from Lakawon Island’s website that the TawHai Floating Bar will be unavailable during our stay due to maintenance and improvements. The reason I acted out is that everything was already set. We booked our room and paid for the floating bar experience prior learning that we wouldn’t be able to try it ourselves. I also read a blog that the Lakawon Island is just a mere beach like every other beach and the only thing that makes it special is the TawHai Floating Bar. But I was there and I tell you, it’s not your typical beach like what other people are saying! 😛
