Every time I am travelling abroad, I always seek help from google maps and other transportation-related apps (e.g., Hyperdia, Subway-Kr, MTR-HK). Google maps has been very reliable for me so far that I keep on checking on it every time I am roaming around a foreign country. But navigating these applications requires you to be connected to the internet otherwise you may not know where exactly are you and if you are indeed going to the right place. You may take the risk of just looking for public wifi everywhere or – the more convenient one – just rent one for your sole use.
Taiwan has always been one of the Asian countries I would love to visit ever since (aside from Japan and South Korea). I never had the chance before to go even though it was only a two-hour flight from Manila because of the hassle of processing the visa (plus, we all know the tension then between Philippines and China so I was kind of pessimistic that I would get it).
My love for Taiwan is not only for its culture and sights but also for its food~ in fact, I made a long list of food that I would like to try in the country.
If you know me personally, read my fangirl musings in this blog or seen my twitter or facebook feeds for a while, you’ll definitely know I’m a ShaWol, short for SHINee World, the official fanclub name of SHINee. Yes, I’ve been their fan for quite some time now (since 2011). I don’t generally like anything KPop, just SHINee. I even had this prejudice with Kpop at first that they are just group of pretty faces without talent. Well, SHINee proved me damn wrong…
And with that… for every travel I did, I make sure I visit something SHINee-related.
If last time we toured around Sapporo, this part will be mostly about Tokyo, the capital of Japan.
Tokyo is probably one of the famous cities around the world. With its advance technologies, clean surroundings and responsible citizens, no doubt it is one of the best cities, as well.
And since this is our first time in Tokyo, we wanted to make the most out of it. That is, excluding the all-day stay in famous theme parks on our itinerary that could eat most of our time. Our plan: to be able to visit as many famous sites as possible!
For my first travel entry on this blog, I will be sharing my first ever (definitely not the last) trip to the land of the rising sun, Japan… As I’ve said on my previous post and probably you will notice in my latter blogs, that I usually combine fangirling and traveling. That is, attending concerts while enjoying the sceneries and delicacies of a foreign land.
