There are so many things to deal with. Only half of them are done and few more are yet to be attended to. The past two weeks were mostly concentrated on the presence of my vacationing MIL.  She stayed with my family prior to her flight back to Sydney.  Hopefully, we had given her the needed attention. Made sure we brought her to places she wanted to see. (Totally forgetting I had just recovered from sickness and hospital confinement.)

Anyways, the family is happy that MIL was able to take pleasure on an overnight stay in Fernandina Tagaytay Villa and enjoyed sightseeing and food trip on some of Tagaytay’s popular restos.  I just feel bad though, that we weren’t able to spend time with the other balikbayans.   Yes, it wasn’t only MIL who was back in the country for short vacation but SIL from Ca. and her son from Perth, Aus. as well.    Also not to forget my own niece and her hubby from San Diego whom we missed attending their arranged family lunch in Intercon Manila while they were here.

There are lots of personal stuff that need my time but have to set aside.  I had to give priority to seeing sick relatives and give time for bonding with my only sibling.  Thus, on the following day that MIL left for Australia, I met with my sis and her daughter in San Fernando, Pampanga then headed to Talavera, Nueva Ecija to visit  a cousin who met an accident and is bed ridden.   Likewise, a nephew by a cousin was diagnosed with an illness we hate to get.  It is quite a big clan we have out there whom we haven’t seen for years.  When they learned that we were coming, there was an outright reunion of sort and a very orderly potluck lunch was arranged all by themselves.  It was  truly one happy moment of catching ups and reminiscings we had with everyone.

Hah! I still have a lot to post.  However,  don’t want to tire you with a very long update.  I hope that you’ll be back  to spend a li’l more time again for upcoming posts. 

Thank you so much for your precious time!  Have a great week ahead!  Be well and enjoy life!!

Exploring Turkey

If you’re looking for a great summer getaway next year, then holidays To Turkey could well be high on your wish-list. It’s a wonderfully diverse destination with a superb range of resorts to suit virtually every different taste and preference imaginable. Everyone from clubbers to culture vultures, hikers to families will be accommodated - and a lot more between.

Take Bodrum for instance. This coastal gem is located on a stunning peninsula and features many wonderful golden beaches, complete with gently lapping shores and an array of watersports to suit all ages. At night, the town comes alive with the sounds of live music, lively bars and booming clubs. But by day, it’s a wonderfully diverse place filled with historical sights - such as the ancient Bodrum Castle. From its defensive position atop a rocky outcrop, this 15th century castle was built by the crusaders to protect against sea-based attack. Today, it’s a magical place to visit - especially as it’s also home to a marine museum that has a stunning range of items, many of which have been collected from shipwrecks dating back thousands of years.

If Turkey tickles your fancy, don’t book without first checking the range of low-cost deals available. Where package breaks are concerned, the best holiday deals are often found a few weeks prior to the departure date. This is when the prices drop to rock-bottom and providing you’re happy to vary your choice of resort and hotel, you’ll usually find some cracking deals. Alternatively, book well ahead - up to a year, sometimes more - and enjoy special offers on early bird bookings. Not only will you get great savings and longer to pay off the cost of your holiday, but you’ll also get the lion’s share of choice - meaning you can take first dibs on your preferred hotel, resort and even your departure airport.

So whatever you fancy, don’t leave it too long until you explore the wonders of Turkey...
