What is a romantic getaway without getting crazy drunk on the world’s best wine?!  Napa Valley has more than just wine.

Napa Valley also has MUSTARD!  Thats right, MUSTARD!  I know you are thinking, “DimeTravel, who the fuck cares about mustard?!”

Fisherman Wharf - Best Romantic Getaways in US

Fishermans Wharf – Peir 39 is probably the most visited part of California’s bay area.  San Francisco offers a very beautiful coast coastline.  Its a great scenic place for a romantic getaway and I doubt you will get better pictures anywhere else in California short of a National Forest.  Fisherman’s Wharf is the highlight of the city second to only the Golden Gate bridge (a must see if you are in the bay area).  There are amazing, strange and unique shops along the pier, there are street performers and artist that make a living on their talent alone.  What I loved most about Fisherman’s Wharf was the food!  If you and your loved one are into sea food, you will fall in love with some of the freshest and most abundant catches on the West Coast of the US.

Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia – If you like the outdoors then one of the best places to visit is Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park.  You can take a romantic vacation and be blown away by a natural wonder and all have very cheap:  between 26 and 30 USD for the average tour.

Lake Tahoe & Reno – When people think of places to go in Nevada, the first thing they consider are the bright lights of Las Vegas.  And if you have not been to Las Vegas then its definitely a must see and can be ver, very romantic indeed.  But what you may not know is that the North part of Nevada is a place with a different kind of romance.  You have nature, skiing, and kayaking.  You can still get the casinos up north.  If you are into gambling, bright lights and city than Reno has everything you cherish.  If your idea of escape is nature and being away from crowded streets then try Lake Tahoe.  Between California and Nevada you have about 6 ski resorts in Lake Tahoe.  You have spectacular shows, hiking, casinos, and MUCH MORE

DimeTravel –

Philippines

  • Do not forget to bring toilet paper if you travel to the province
  • Do not put you wallet in your back pocket.  A lot of street kids are pick pockets.
  • Do NOT go to southern Zamboanga Peninsula and the Sulu in Mindanao.  There is a good chance of kidnapping

Middle East

  • Do not talk about Mohamed unless you are a Muslim and have “god is greater” type things to say… In fact, just avoid the subject of religion all together (I don’t know about Israel).
  • Do NOT walk alone at night as a woman anywhere.

As of this moment (3 months after a 7+ earth quake 2013), Bohol is still under reconstruction and the bridge connecting Panglao and Tagbilaran has been broken.

Hopefully early next year everything will be fix so the tourists can come visit again into Alona beach, historical churches, Loboc river and famous Chocolate Hills.

bohol news

As of 9 Dec 2013, the news in Bohol is grim.  Earthquake aftershocks are continuously occurring in the provinces of Bohol & Cebu as well as neighboring countries.  Bohol officials have also received information that looters from samar/leyte are starting to go to the island. The residences are warned to close their doors and guard their properties as there have been reports of people stealing, killing and raping women.  Electricity in the city of Cebu and Talisay are cut an hour a day to be distributed to the island of Bohol as construction continues.

Locals have not recovered yet from the natural disaster.  Government offices and businesses have not fully recovery operations yet.  Infrastructure is slowly being rebuilt. Some people have also moved out after the typhoon. All government related affairs are frozen until everything is fixed including the tourism of Bohol.   This includes the restoration of all the historical churches and other tourist spots that has been destroyed.  Aftershocks has been going on for almost 2 months now.  – abs- cbn news

Recent Bohol News: President Ninoy Aquino had released 1 billion pesos budget for the restoration and assistance for the people and its livelihood. Other countries have also donated millions of dollars to help rebuild the place. Hopefully everything will be back to how it was for the year 2014. People fear that the island will be divided from the mark the earthquake had left and for the continous aftershocks . Lets all pray that Bohol island can recover from everything that its going through now.  Philstar
