Wouldn’t it be nice to earn a living without feeling like you’re working yourself into the ground?

Two weeks’ worth of vacation time?

A Guide on Flight Tickets To Japan  

Up until recently, planning a trip to Japan seems to be a prohibitive proposition.  Aside from the airfare, there’s the thing about Japan’s high cost of living which can translate to rather expensive travel costs.  Good thing that travel has evolved and come of age with more affordable fares and rather inexpensive options – if you know where and how to look for them.  Let’s start with transport: with cheap flights to Japan deals, you can start planning your Japanese jaunt sooner than later.  If you want to save even further, watch out for Jetstar flight promos at Traveloka online.  In that way, you can save even more and have more cash for splurging on other things like shopping, dining and sightseeing.

Sagada Warnings and Annoyances

For the past 8 years or so, I’ve been going in and out of Sagada, Mountain Province since I first went there on a solo trip back 2004. It has been a place of solitude, wonder and invigoration. I’ve brought people there, friends and foreign photographers. Enjoyed the food and the scenery. But throughout the years, I’ve noticed the somewhat subtle changes happening as Sagada becomes really popular. My recent trip somehow made these changes more prevalent than ever in a negative way. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Sagada, I’m sure long time readers would know how I would wax poetic about the place. But I write these Sagada Warnings and Annoyances not to dissuade people from coming, but for them to know what to expect, especially during the peak seasons.

My do-it-yourself Dry Box

Just giving in to some queries about my DIY Dry Box I posted here at my Photography Gear Setup. I guess with the onset of the rainy season, for a tropical country like us, a lot of photographers are keen in protecting their gears from humidity and moist. Moist inside your lens and camera body, left alone can damage your gear either with fungus, even rust. Especially now with the rains, there will be a time that our gears will remain longer in the storage than usual. So here’s a detailed look on how I built my DIY Dry Box.

It’s always nice to see some of your works published in print media whether big or small. On today’s issue of Manila Bulletin TRAVEL, they have a feature on Travel Photography 101.
