Star-Spangled Journey: Overnight in Virginia Beach


August 22, 2011


Virginia Beach wasn't originally in our itinerary.  But then, we learned that my mom's former boss, who is now based in Virginia Beach, just had a major surgical operation so we decided to visit her before embarking on the east coast journey.

Star-Spangled Journey: Mission of San Juan Capistrano


August 21, 2011

Does anyone know, or has anyone ever heard of this song?



I'm totally clueless about this song until the day we visited the place mentioned in it. But my mom knows the song and has been singing a few lines while we were at Mission San Juan Capistrano which is the subject of this post. 


Star-Spangled Journey: CA's Disneyland, For Kids and Young Once


This is my second Disney experience, my first time was at Hongkong Disneyland. But the magic isn't lost on me. 


Our day in Disneyland in Anaheim, California started on Main Street by visiting The Disney Gallery and the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln (Disneyland Story). Sketches and illustrations of Disney characters are on display at the gallery. Meanwhile, the audio-animatronics technology was utilized to relive the moments in history with honest Abe.

All Set for the Star-Spangled Journey



It took me about a month to prepare for the month-long vacation. Hours and hours of surfing the web, communicating with people in different time zones (which meant staying up late for so many nights which spilled over to ungodly hours, reading blogs and suggested itineraries in travel search engines and making huge dents in my pockets. Google, Trip Advisor, Expedia, Booking.Com and official tourism sites of the various states we'll be visiting became my virtual neighbors.

Finally, August came and we were set.

The Journey to the Land of the Star-Spangled Banner


It has been a while since I made my last post. For two weeks now, I've been criss-crossing the land of the star-spangled banner. Seven states and counting. And that means I have too much blogging backlog.
