traveling once more

My first trip out of the country
Singapore birthday for me!    
I really want to spend more time traveling this year. After a year of personal loss and financial gain, I think it's time to focus on myself.

I had a nice birthday surprise when I received  a notification about my travel write up. Here's my first travel review as Kathy R in 
"The ad through Metrodeal was accurate. The place is lovely and situated in the mountainside. Our balcony has a wonderful view of the mountaintop, with clouds rolling by. We didn't need the AC because of the cool breeze wafting in our rooms.

The people are friendly and accommodating. The wife of the owner even gave us some red wine when we had a drinking session during our last night there. The food was excellent. You get your money's worth.

The room was clean and the restroom was very spacious. It's a wonderful place to be alone and forget about the worries of city life.

For activities, we swam in their pool and trekked to Aninuan Falls. The trek is quite far so if your muscles are not used to scaling large rocks and walking through a a stream with a strong current then you might want to go snorkeling or diving. They also provide trips to the Hidden Cave and the Giant Clam Garden. They offer in house massages as well, especially when you get tired after all those activities.

Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely go back with my friends."
Will post my Singapore adventure soon. Here's to a great year ahead!
