First off, Riga is in Latvia, which is near Russia and Baltic Sea. Before this year, I didn’t know where this was either. I have recently seen so many Instagrams from here and posts on travel blogs about the city of Riga. I also have a friend living in Poland recommend it.
The city of Riga is so charming and the vibe is great. I love all of the cafes, architecture, and the vibe. It has a feel of all of my favorite European cities all rolled into one. I couldn’t have had a better time in this great city.
I LOVE RIGA!!!! full post

I found my slice of paradise at the Orange Pearl Resort in Palawan. Prior to coming to El Nido, I couldn’t find a place that seemed to meet my criteria (hammock, quiet beachfront, air con, wifi). After a night in town, I took a tricycle from the main town to the “Las Cabanas Beach” as all of the tricycle drivers referred to it as for 150PP. As I walked down the beach, there were not to many options until I stumbled upon the Orange Pearl. I hung out at the Orange Pearl for a couple hours and realized this was the place for me. The staff was so friendly and the view was amazing.
Every morning, I found myself out on the beach at sunrise because I didn’t want to miss a second of the view. I would sip a few cups of coffee provided by the resort and truly just enjoy the moment.

My first stop in the Philippines is El Nido. Six months ago, I had no idea where El Nido was, but I did know fellow travelers post pictures on Instagram of the Philippines and I want to go there. Many of my travel plans in the past few years have stemmed from travel pages on Instagram that have been beautiful pictures. I have put it on my first stop on my Asian adventure.
Now the hardest part of my trip plans: Where do I stay?
