I’ve been to Bangkok a number of times, but this is the first time I’m exploring the real flavors of Thailand beyond the touristy and cliché establishments. 

My food blogger friends Mark and Ying Wiens of EatingThaiFood.com introduced us to their favorite hidden place for kuay teow reua or boat noodles in Bangkok.

Here’s a photo essay of our experience…

HOLY LAND (Day 4 – Cana): “Valentine’s Wedding at Cana, Wedding Reception in Jericho, and Honeymoon in Jerusalem” @BoSanchez @IsraelTourism

Day 3- Wedding in Cana - Our Awesome Planet-483.jpg

This was the most memorable Valentine’s Day for us, which started with the renewal of our wedding vows at Cana, a wedding reception at Mount of Temptation Restaurant in Jericho, then our honeymoon in Jerusalem. 

We’ve been married for 11 years, and this was the perfect marriage renewal for us. If you’re planning to renew your vows soon, it’s worth considering doing it in Cana in Israel, by going on a Holy Land pilgrimage.

Here’s the photo essay of our Valentine’s Wedding Day at Cana…

HOLY LAND (Day 2 – Tiberias): “Mount Tabor, Capernaum, and Mount of Beatitudes” @BoSanchez @IsraelTourism

Day 2- The Feast at the Blue Beach - Our Awesome Planet-17.jpg
I personally like following the footsteps of Jesus’ early ministry in Tiberias with His disciples.

We visited the Church of the Transfiguration at Mount Tabor, then the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fish at Tabgha, and had lunch near the shores of the Sea of Galilee.

After lunch we had a beautiful mass and annointing of leadership at the Church of St. Peter in Capernaum, then proceeded to where Jesus gave the sermon at the Mount of Beatitudes.

Then we ended the day with the best Feast I’ve attended, at the Blue Beach near the Sea of Galilee.

Here’s the photo essay of Day 2 of our Holy Land Pilgrimage with Bro. Bo Sanchez…

HOLY LAND (Day 1 – Nazareth): “Kosher Breakfast, Mount Carmel, and Maria di Nazareth” @BoSanchez @IsraelTourism

Day 1- Kosher Breakfast and Nazareth  Our Awesome Planet-179.jpgWe started our Holy Land Pilgrimage from Tel Aviv, to Mount Carmel in Haifa, to Nazareth, and finally to Tiberias in the Sea of Galilee, which was where Jesus started His early ministry with His disciples. 

Israel has a population of 9 Million, with 6 Million Jews, 1.5 Million Muslims, and about 150,000 Christians. It is bounded by Lebanon in the north, by Syria in the northeast, by Jordan in the east, by Egypt in the southwest, and by the Mediterranean Sea in the the west.

ISRAEL (Day 0. MNL ✈ HKG ✈ TLV): “En route to the Holy Land” @BoSanchez @IsraelTourism

Day 0- Manila - Hongkong - Israel  Our Awesome Planet-83.jpgWe joined Bro. Bo Sanchez’s “Receive Your Miracle” 10-Day Pilgrimage to the Holy Land last February 2014. It’s a life-changing and blessed experience that every Christian should do at least once in their lifetime. It’s best to go with your special someone and a great opportunity to renew your vows.

This Holy Week, I’ll be sharing with you a photo essay of our day-to-day experience throughout the pilgrimage. May these photo essays bless you and inspire you to go to Holy Land one of these days.

Let’s start with the beginning of our journey, from Manila to Israel…
