This blog post deviates somewhat from my usual guide on traveling. Instead, this is about my experience in scuba diving in general.

Although I’m not a regular diver, I did dive around 17 times in 3 different countries.  As a beginner scuba diver, it is important to choose the site to dive, and who to dive with (for safety reasons).

The first time I dove was at two different sites in Great Barrier Reef at Australia: Port Douglas...

Three months of Travel around Mexico in 3 minutes. I met amazing friends from Mexico and around the world (representatives from 14 countries). I saw every part of Mexico, from the ruins, jungles, forests, villages, to colonial cities, metropolitans, villages and resorts. I experienced everything that is unique to Mexico, such as eating tacos, drinking tequilas, dancing salsa on the street and watching the Mexican soccer league...

One of the major attractions in Cancun is Isla Mujeres Underwater Museum, or MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte). 


This museum was first conceptualized by a non-profit organization based in Cancun. The museum director hired sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor and submerged 500 different sculptures in the depths of the Cancun sea.


Ever since 2008, the underwater museum became a major attraction of Cancun. Throughout the years, the scul...

Cenotes are major attractions in the Yucatan Penninsula. They are large underground wells that have long been protected by the Mayans.


I've had the chance to explore two cenotes during my trip to Yucatan. One at Tulum and one near Chichen Itza. 


What is it?


A cenote is an underground cave with freshwater pools. 



It was believed that an asteroid hit Yucatan and shifted the bedrocks in the area, the result is a collapse of lime...

Cancun is a world-class tourist city and possibly the most famous city in Mexico. With its beautiful beach, never-sleeping night clubs and a rich culture (notably with Chichen Itza within driving distance), Cancun is a hot destination for tourists around the world.


However, Tulum has been getting more attention in recent years. This is because the city also has a world-class beach (if not even better than Cancun) and also with...

It has been quite an emotional experience in my 3-month stay at Mexico. Before arriving to this beautiful country, I had my fair share of doubts about this place, whether it is related to some of the typical stereotypes or the danger of drug cartels. However, after meeting amazing people in Mexico, I have completely changed my perspective and my view about this country. This country offers much more than I had imagined. The pe...

As Halloween is fast approaching, many people are dressing up for Halloween parties and kids are getting ready to go around the town for trick-or-treat. The same also happens in Mexico, but there is another important date that is very close to Halloween - The Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos).


The first time I heard about the Day of the Dead was during my tour at a small village in Oaxaca, Mexico. My tour guide led me to a cem...

This unfortunately will be my last trip to visit another city in Mexico this year. Although this may sound a little sad, it simply gives me more motivation to come back and explore the rest of the country. Nevertheless, I’m excited to see my travel buddy friends again from Mexico City, namely Kirsty, Matias, Silvio and Lena. This time, onwards to Chiapas!


This is also the first time that I chose Viva Aerobus to fly anywhere in...

When people from five different nations gather together, great things happen. When I say great things, I mean that we used our limited precious time and actually made the most of our trip. In this trip, a Canadian, a Brazilian, a Russian, a British and an Argentinian really conquered the land of healers: Oaxaca Mexico.


When I arrived at the airport of Oaxaca City from Monterrey, I was supposed to meet up with the rest of the g...

Being in Mexico, you must know what Quinceañera means. The first time I noticed Quinceañera was on a random street of Monterrey, Mexico. Instead of the regular bachelorette parties that I see, I saw a much younger crowd and with mix gender. That's when I raise the question "What is that? And what are they doing?"


The simplest answer to this question is that Quinceañera is Sweet 15. However, there is a...
