So, I am going hiking!?

We decided to go to this place in Italy called Cinque Terre for my birthday. It already looks amazing on the photos that I have seen so far. But apparently, walking is the recommended way of exploring the beautiful villages - one that I can definitely do but not very good at. There is also a mention of about 90 minutes hike and all that. Well, my problem is I really haven't hiked in a very long time and I have no idea how will I manage it. For one, I am scared of heights and just the thought of it really makes me sick. But as I have always (wanted) to believe, the most beautiful and enjoyable things in life are sometimes the ones that I am really scared of, so sod it! I know this is gonna be worth it. Now, my other problem is what shoes to wear. I know right? Kind of stupid to be worrying about shoes but honestly, I don't have a clue what to wear.

The SAHARA : An Experience of a Lifetime

The camel trekking in Sahara was not in our original plan. In fact, we only booked our trip the day before we arrived in Morocco. We only booked one night as we didn't know what to expect. I thought that I would not like it as there were no facilities, but I was wrong basically. If there was one trip that I would love to do over and over again apart from my trip to Santorini, it would be this one. Honestly, when we travel, we always book the cheapest flights and accommodations we can find. I would really love to travel a lot cheaper though, and I know that backpacking is my best option. But I honestly can't tell you at this moment if I am ready for it. It's there for consideration, but I need to think about it. After all, if some of the people I know could do it, then I could. But if you are looking for tips on how you can travel cheap in the Philippines, Asia, Europe or anywhere in the world, you can read these blogs which are also my favourites : We Are Sole Sisters , Pi
