We’re going on a 2-week vacation! I’ve never been on one that’s for this long (5 days max is my longest one) so I am psyched about 14 days of no work and all play!
We booked our Manila-Sydney return trip last March via Cebu Pacific during one of it’s fare sales. Our flight was a steal and cost only about 9k per person (inclusive of baggage but no meals). The plane ride isn’t going to be as fun since we won’t have entertainment, free drinks, and 2 meal services on the flight but who am I to complain when it’s only 25% of the cost of a full-service flight. We choose a 12mn departure and plan to just sleep the whole 8-hour nonstop flight. Nice dinner before the flight would also be so much better than airline food.
Just last week, we thought a few days to see other places in Australia sounds like a plan so we booked a SYD-MEL side trip. Thanks to Jetstar’s Price Beat Guarantee, we booked our last minute domestic flights for only AUD 100 per person. Because last minute accomodations are also pricey, we decided to try airbnb for the 1st time. We choose a 10th floor 1-br apartment in the CBD that had amazing pictures, can’t wait to see and review the place.
