Monday Madness on Vacation

Monday Madness

This is my first entry for Monday Madness. I like participating in memes like these because they give me something to start writing on. Not that I don't have anything on mind what to post about. As a matter of fact there are so many but these memes give me some kind of organization of thought. :) So let me start with my Monday Madness.

1. Where did you go on your last vacation?
Right timing for all these questions. My family and I just had our mini vacation in Baguio City, the Philippines' official summer capital. I said official since there are so many places here to go (and for some, places to be seen) during summer.

2. Would you go there again? Why or why not?
Of course! It's one of our favorite destinations, summer or not. The weather is nice for one.

3. How many vacations do you take in one year?
Two to three though they aren't really grand, grand vacations. We just like to have some time off away from the city.

4. Where would you REALLY like to go on your next vacation, if money was no issue, and how long would you stay?
If money is no issue, I'd like us to have a European tour, a month will do. :)

5. Do you put a little money aside each week (or month) to save up for your vacation?
Uh-oh. Not really but it's like we do budget our money when the planned vacation date is near already, three weeks to a month thereabouts. But then again saving some money for it on a monthly basis or twice a month is better. Will start on that.


How was my day today? It ended better than it started. Not that it started bad. But early in the evening I was sort of recharged and inspired. Thanks to my professor for being a good motivator. He's not big in words but he's the "walk the talk" type of person. He lives what he "preaches" so to speak.

Lesson for the day is something really obvious: surround yourself with positive people. Their enthusiasm is contagious.

Have a great week ahead!

Hi Lynn. Welcome to Monday Madness! It's lovely to see you here. I'm late with mine this week. I saw your name on the comment box of MM and decided to drop by first before doing mine.

It's been several years since I've been to Baguio. I have many fond memories of Baguio with my friends. Last time I went there, I was the only girl in the group. I felt like a princess because my friends really pampered me. :)

Have to work on mine now. :) Take care!

Hi Lynn, thanks for visiting my blog :) I miss Manila, and esp. Baguio City. The last time I went to Baguio was back in April '89, a few months before I left the country.

I enjoyed reading your answers here, and welcome to MM! :)
