Hello! Welcome to Wanderlass Travel Blog

Wanderlass blog began in 2007 as a mean to update my family and friends during my first solo trip to Europe. As our memory struggles against forgetting, this blog serves as a backup memory of my travels around the world. Please enjoy!

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Have a Magical Day!

This is how they greet you here in Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Resort. You might smirk at first, but the truth is, it is kind of magical around here. All the little details inside and outside the hotel; the castle like building, the maze, hidden mickeys, will definitely draw smiles from the grumpiest person. As for myself, I was a kid inside Disneyland.

Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland is phenomenal because it made Disneyland accessible to Southeast Asians. For many years, children in the Philippines (and neighboring Southeast Asian countries) whose parents could not afford to bring them to the US or Japan, could only know Mickey Mouse and the Walt Disney prince and princesses through Disney channels and videos. With its opening in 2005, it made many childhood dreams come true.

Viva Las Vegas

There are a million of things to do in Las Vegas. It has such a good vibe because almost everyone you see there is on holiday or celebrating something: graduation, birthday, marriage, divorce, you name it! It’s the Disneyland for adults.

Xiamen: A Family Holiday

Xiamen China is a major coastal city in Fujian Province. It’s also the ancestral home of many overseas Chinese scattered around Southeast Asia. If you haven’t already guessed where I’m going with this, my parents’ are from here (Fujian). My dad actually went to school in Xiamen City, so this is sort of a homecoming for him. He hasn’t been back there for over 30 years though, and with the mega urbanization that went on in mainland China in the recent years, he’s as much of a tourist as we are.

Fairytale Town of Sintra

Located just a stone’s throw away from Lisbon is the quaint little town of Sintra. In my opinion, this is one of the best places to go outside of Lisbon if you are interested in Romantic Architecture of the 19th Century, or simply because you are after a day trip from Lisbon to escape the modern city.

Hey, I'm Wanderlass! The lass who wanders.

I travel the world on a quest to live a life not ordinary.

In 2011, I went to live my greatest dream of traveling around the world. This epic trip took me to 25 countries across 5 continents for 425 days! Needless to say, the wanderlust did not wane one bit when I came back. I continue to go on trips, albeit shorter ones.

Today, I’ve been to 58 countries & territories on 6 continents. I target to visit countries I’ve never been to; dive new dream destinations; and try new adventures like sailing, skydiving, or stepping on a brand new island.

Come, wander with me!
