Throw Back 2-Week: Family trip May 2014 in Seoul, South Korea

We do take family trips during Easter break… case in point Seoul 😉
I remember thinking that it was a mixture of China and Japan (well it is kind of in-between) not as crazy/unorganized as China yet not quite as crazy/rigid as Japan, a nice balance

PS: This was my first Little Planet

Woohoo… I survived 2 weeks of Easter break and you, my dear readers, my throwback posts 😉 This will be the last set as we came full circle since I started doing those during our summer vacations last year. What a year it’s been, now what will I do this year during summer break?!!

****

So to summarize: This summer I did a Throw Back Thursday of our summer vacations of the past 6 years (because that’s how far back this blog goes!).  I revisited the idea again with Throw Back Week with our October Break vacations, then I did another Throw Back Week of our Christmas vacation (but I did it in February – don’t ask!) so now it seems fitting to do it again with our Easter Break vacations (lots of solo trips, and a few family trips).

So once again enjoy the trips down memory lane… for those of you who have been following since the beginning of this blog and for the others the chance to discover old postings 😉

Throw Back 2-Week – Solo trip May 2015 in Dubai, UAE

This was my second time in Dubai (first one was in 2013 for some photography workshops and visiting a friend) this one was for a good cause, a photography exhibition but also needed for closure more than pleasure. Link here: http://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/CelineInDubai/chrono

Throw Back 2-Week – Family trip March 2015 in Guizhou province, China

This was one of my favorite family trip, maybe because it resembled one of my typical solo trip.

We spend 4 days at a village home stay in Guiyang… if you haven’t clicked on any previous links this one is must (just to see one of the morning surprise we had waiting for us on the kitchen floor 😉 Link here: http://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/c&jGuizhou/chrono

Throw Back 2-Week – Birthday Friends trip April 2016 in Tokyo, Japan

Barely 2 weeks after my trip to Kobe with my daughter’s sports team, I got to go to Tokyo for a long weekend with 2 friends as a birthday/going away present to ourselves as we were all celebrating our birthday that month and also all leaving China that summer.

This was very much a let’s follow the experts kind of trip and just relax 😉

Throw Back 2-Week – “Chaperone” trip April 2016 in Kobe, Japan

And we are back to Solo trips. Well, this one was a Chaperone trip to be more precise, because who would refuse to go along with their daughter’s sports team?! Yes, that’s how kids in international schools roll… they don’t play with neighbor cities or even neighbor states they play with neighboring countries 😉

Very pleasant little trip and while in Kobe, one eats Kobe steak of course 😉

Oh it was also my second earthquake in 12 months!!

Throw Back 2-Week – Family trip April 2016 in Dumaguete, The Philippines

We do family trip too 😉 So this was our second time in the Philippines. (we went to Boracay in 2015).
We lazied up by the pool, accompanied the kids on scuba dives, snorkeled with sea turtles, swam with Shark Whales, and even decided to have a stopover in Manila and actually visit the city this time around… link here: http://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/C&JThePhilippines2/chrono

Throw Back 2-Week – Solo Photography Trip May 2017 in Borodudur/Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

So this was quite an interesting Solo photography. I signed up thru Canon Singapore and it was a great immersing photography trip. It was a big group (one of the biggest I’ve been) but with very talented photographers (a few of them had already traveled with the amazing lead photographer) and I was just surrounded by local photographers. They didn’t quite know how I will fit into the group when we met at the airport: female (they were only 2 of us at the beginning of the trip), Ang Moh/TaiTai (will she be high maintenance!), can she even use a camera 😉

The sights were amazing. The food was amazing, and the camaraderie was amazing too. One of my favorite, with Nepal.

To see the photos it’s over here: http://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/CelineInIndonesia/chrono (and yes for the eagle eye that was my 3rd trip (solo/mi-solo) in a month. What can I say some years are better than others 😉
