Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, Liverpool, rah!

all strapped and ready to go!

Well, it was bound to happen, my first official backpacking mishap — but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Let me tell it from the start.

Kaladkarin’s UK Adventure – Oh yeah, work.

Two weeks have passed by in just a blink, and I’ve barely gotten to write about it. Although it doesn’t seem like it,  I was sent to London to do some actual work, so most of those first 14 days were spent within the Canary Wharf office.

Kaladkarin’s UK Adventure – Portobello, Priscilla & Piccadilly

I heard that the Portobello Market at Notting Hill was a mecca for quirky shoppers, so I set off even if the clouds were taunting. Served me right — I got my first dose of the infamous London moody weather. Close friends will know that I’m averse to actually having to open an umbrella; I would rather grin and bear it.

Mt. Kitanglad, Bukidnon

Of course, every great trip deserves a tribute video. =)

To say that Mt. Kitanglad was a sight to behold is a glaring understatement. It was definitely one of the best climbs I’ve been on –> fun trail + awesome view = winner! If there was any doubt if climbing is still my first great love, then this trip just about squashes it all.

This goes out to kindred spirits Jan, Stan & Biboy. Can’t wait to go back and visit D2 next! 🙂

Kaladkarin in Backpacker Mode Across Southeast Asia

7-14 July 2008
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Siam Reap (Cambodia) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)

Marking my first overseas leisure trip. To say that this trip was life-changing is like saying that I have my mom to thank for bringing me into the world. Witnessing wonders such as the Angkor Wat is a blessing that I couldn’t fathom taking for granted. Cliche as it may be, words are definitely not enough to describe the experience; I’ll let the video do the talking. There are also links below the vid to prove our shameless camwhoring across SEA. 🙂 Continue reading Kaladkarin in Backpacker Mode Across Southeast Asia
