Featuring yet again another review of our recent staycation in Tagaytay. 🙂 Really, this place is easily becoming a favorite and a default go-to for quiet weekend getaways.

Sis: *begins a&%*+$!… at me..
Me: *Zones out while imagining huge waves and myself surfing..

The last leg of our 9-day journey across 4 countries was in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. It was an exhausting 14-hour journey by bus from Siem Reap and our bodies were longing for a decent meal, nice, warm shower, and a comfy bed to rest our strained backs. LOL.
