Two weeks, somewhere, and the rest in my beloved Philly Islands. The trip to Thailand and Siem Reap this year was a revelation. I see travel as helpful to the mind and soul. Work and the American life could be stressful. I deserve to relax and revitalize. Even it will cost me bucks.
This is our original plan for next year. To see the Taj Mahal is one of Mama O's dream. The whole of India would be overwhelming, so we thought the Northern part would just be enough. Rajasthan and Delhi plus Agra seem cool. India has a lot of pretty odd colors. Imagine the Photo Opportunities! I would love it there. And a side trip to Nepal as an accessory? Hmmm... Katmandu sounds exotic!!!
It was a deal at first to meet up with fellow bloggers Kawadjan, [G], and Fuchsiaboy in India until the lips of Bangkok decided to back out and the Siem Reap wunderkid copies Chiz Escudero's indecisiveness. India should have been sealed with the Asian Beauties confirmation.
Ekra is not that excited with India, she suggests Greece. Mama O's Mama Mia's influence collaborates. And my previous fascination with Greek men went over big. We can play Meryl and friends in Mykonos and Santorini and Athens could be ancienting! The now traditional side-trip would be in Istanbul, Turkey. Ruffa G would be proud.
I had enough of the mosques in Dubai but maybe Turkey will be different. Greece alone is major league. I say game! But yet, would it be cold over there on the first quarter of the year?
Spain and Morocco was our original plan before Thailand and Siem Reap came up this year. Barcelona is known for their gay nightlife, thus Ekra and Mimi's thrill. Sorry, but I am more into its Architecture like Gaudi's and the Sagrada Familia. Seriously, Chos! Or maybe go down to Ibiza and experience the Cafe Del Mar musical moments and cross the Strait of Gibraltar until we reach the sands of Tangier, Morocco. Exciting, huh?
However, I am not too aroused with cosmopolitan cities as trip options, and Ive seen sands and camels in Dubai before, but I still think this option would be fun with the sisters for sure. If I have to travel alone, I wont choose this.
I always wanted to go to Brazil. I wasn't able to go with Mama O and Ekra 2 years ago due to schedule conflict. If i decide to go there, I need a travel companion. Jezebel? Hello? The older sisters wont come anymore. They want to see more places as possible. Rio would be more accessible for me and maybe much inexpensive traveling from mainland US. Imagine the beach boys, Jezebel? They may look like you, but who knows, a lost hot Caucasian tourist hunk looking for a Brazilian boy might mistake you for one? Go?
This came up just last night when driving home with Ekra and Mama O. Sydney would be nice, eh? Just the right timing for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras! How about that? Oxford Street is waiting, girls! Castro is nothing during their night-time Pride Parade!
Though I have experienced the parade and Sydney and its vicinity 10+ years ago, I would still love to come. It has changed a lot for sure. And only if we do some side-trips to The Ayer's Rock, Cairns or Melbourne (right, Jase?) for a change.
I will definitely go home to the Philippines for two weeks. Boracay included. If the sisters decided not to travel anywhere next year, my only option is to spend the whole month there. I plan to see the Rice Terraces (before it is gone) and the Caramoan Peninsula (before they commercialized it). Maybe with the "BF"? Or Kelly? We'll see!
Wherever it would be, I am so excited! I need a break! Mga bakla! who wants to come? The more the merrier, Go!
