How I Got My South Korea Tourist Visa in Dallas, Texas, USA?

I also asked myself how I did that.  I was surprised as well.  As I am not a resident of United States of America, I took a chance to apply for a tourist visa at the South Korea Consulate in Dallas, Texas and fortunately I was provided a single entry which is valid for 90 days.

Passport Renewal at the DFA, Manila

Three months prior to my personal appearance at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Manila to renew my passport, I was checking online to see if I can book a schedule.  Unfortunately, all schedules were taken from February to end of April 2013.  So, the only option I had was to contact a Travel Agency in the Philippines and have them schedule my passport renewal.  I don’t know how they did it but I was told my schedule is confirmed.  I think they have a connection inside the DFA, if not how would they if the online booking was fully booked?

The Bayleaf Hotel, Intramuros, Philippines

I booked a Superior Room online for two days stay and what a surprise it was when I checked in found out that I was upgraded to a Deluxe Room.  Unfortunately, my friend who traveled with me did not get an upgrade.  The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros is a charming medium size hotel opposite of the country’s premier heritage site, Intramuros.  The room is clean and well laid out contemporary design and decorated in an assortment of themed colors.  Mine was in Mint Green.

Rum Tours: Getting to the Heart of Jamaica’s Rum Trade

In terms of national identity, rum is to Jamaica what whisky is to Scotland. For anyone going on a Jamaican holiday, getting into the spirit of this beverage is a sure-fire way to tap into the heart of this island’s culture – and chill out in true Bob Marley style.

Rum is produced from fermented molasses – a sweet by-product of sugarcane – and its story is on show in the fields enclosed by the rolling rain-forested hills of inland Jamaica. As a rum tourist, you can get out into this lush landscape where slaves were first brought to toil in the Jamaican sugarcane plantations in the 17th century. No surprise perhaps given the hardship of their lives that it was these slaves who discovered how to ferment molasses, creating a shortcut to liquid pleasure which has fuelled the island ever since.

How I got my Schengen Visa?

I almost did not pursue my application for a Euro Zone (Schengen Visa) from the French Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan due to several factors. There were so many reasons not to. First, the French guy who scheduled my interview was not helpful enough with the questions I asked him, and he was downright RUDE at times during our phone conversation. La French! Second, he told me that it will take at least two weeks to find out if I will even be eligible to get a visa. Third, I called around September 20 and I was given an interview schedule on the 1st of October. I asked the French guy if he can re-schedule to make it earlier, since I was running up against a tight vacation planning schedule. You know what he said?  “We are not a MARKET to do that”. Darn this French Guy, who does he think he is, Sarkozy? I had heard and so assumed that most of the French are rude, but this was beyond being subtle.

Saalbach from the Eye of Your Camera

For the photographer in each of us, one may find Saalbach to be the perfect jumping off point for photographing the exquisitely lovely Glemmtal Valley. But getting there cheaply can be problematic – find Saalbach, Austria holidays from Inghams.co.uk, and have a look for the lowest fares.

At any time of year, sunrises and sunsets lighting the peaks of the Kitzbüheler Alps make for dramatic and colorful landscapes. Of course, nature is the main draw of Glemmtal, but the town of Saalbach also delights with its church building and distinctive onion-shaped dome.
