I can’t buy happiness, but I can buy a plane ticket.. and that’s pretty close

 Our destinations for Summer 2016

With the exam period slowly crawling up on us the travel bug is also at its full bloom. I just posted A Pocket Guide to New Zealand and Tsutsumi has to keep her trip to Paris a secret for now, but our plans for the summer is all booked! We could not be more excited for the adventures to come and share all the details with you. 



The first four days will be spent in Singapore, Asia’s most Westernized capital city. A must visit is the Universal Studios! We have been to the main one in Los Angeles before and always wanted to go back for it. Always been a kid at heart and visiting amusement parks is one of our best memories growing up. You can see the endless fun we had at Disneysea in Tokyo, here

The place we are most excited to visit – beautiful Bali! It is the number one place on our bucket list to do together and we are going to spend 5 magical days here.We will sip on cocktails in Seminyak, watch the sunrise from a volcano and visit the Monkey Forest in Ubud. Lazy days to sunbathe and snorkel in the middle of the ocean where the crystal clear waves of Nusa Dusa will amaze us. But most importantly we will simply enjoy life a little.

(I will also force Tsutsumi to try Kopi Luwak with me. It is the world’s most expensive coffee and is a cup of cat poop. YAS!)

Then we will fly to Kuala Lumpur for a day trip! This is where the stress begins with us running off to see the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, Little India and Batu Caves. We will indulge in traditional Malaysian food, visit a couple of shrines and live in the seconds we find ourselves in.

Mabuhay, Manila! We are still deciding whether to visit Boracay instead of being in Manila, but as for now I am more than happy to stay in Manila and do day trips. Our must-do is to dine under a waterfall and visit Mount Pinatubo. It is during the rain season while we’re there, but that wont matter because I really have the best time when Tsutsumi is traveling with me.

Taiwan is going to be everything we need and more. Embrace the history and immerse ourselves in the culture and life of the people. I wanted to visit Taipei during my trip in Hong Kong back in February, so it is a thrill to finally lock the dates in. Can’t wait for my Taiwanese cuisine! I have been missing traditional asian food ever since I came back to Sydney. Our Instagram diaries is going to be one to look forward to, because our cousin is going to meet us halfway!

So much planning to do and that is the best part of the entire trip!  How lucky are we to travel with each other? Despite living on two different continents we still manage to run this blog together and meet for the second time this year – which makes me very happy for Giggles & Dimples to reunite ♥ We are going to have a million freckles to last for a lifetime and the most amazing time twinning
