It worked for me and my wife
Fortunately we have been granted visa without big cash on the bank and showed only our credit cards...

Proof of Subsistence
Are credit cards not enough proof that showing big amount of money in the bank is being required?

VIA process has changed
Hi, thanks for writing this up. I think recently the process has changed at VIA center in makati. I went there on a Monday around 12 noon, (this was the second floor of Allegro building) and I had to wait 2 hours, and then documents-checking took a full hour. The BIG Change is that after all my documents were checked, they said I needed to return on another day with an appointment for "Compliance" which is located on the 3rd floor. They said the earliest appointment i could get was 2 weeks away because all the slots were filled until then but I fought and argued and luckily got an earlier date only 3 days later. They didn't even keep my documents, it was returned to me. I don't know if this was because I was missing 2 documents which they told me to bring. (But then why couldn't I simply return the next day with the new documents??). Anyway, this is just a heads-up for any other readers of your blog, to plan accordingly.

To be on the safe side you'll have to show at least 150 euros for every day that you're there so you will have to show at least 800,000 Pesos in your bank account. And yes they will check your accommodation bookings

Gaudi was a genius

Gaudi was a genius
He sure was! I went to the park but didn't go in. Just explored the gardens up in the hill. Perhaps next time

Loved seeing the GoT locations
I recognised the steps but not where Arya got stabbed. We're planning on re-watching all the old eps before Season 8 is released! Rubbing her foot on your leg? I think that girl's watched waaay too many 80s and 90s rom-coms :)

Loved seeing the GoT locations
Yeah it was on that bridge. It's hard to recognize since they did a lot of CG but there are more places there that I did not include. Really cool to see them in person. Too bad I didn't have enough time to see Seville in the south but I'll be back someday! Lol at the 90s rom coms!

Kumusta!
Hey! I was in Spain the same time as you. Did you see me!! ja ja ja I absolutely loved Barcelona, as did you! Great blog and pictures. I'm jealous you made it to Montserrat. I didn't have the time. Teaches you for wearing another countries scarf! Did you go to a game?

Kumusta!
Didn't see you but I really thought I saw you in BC a few years ago working at a vintage shop until I read your blog where you mentioned that you worked in prison! No I didn't. Football is not a thing in the Philippines so it wasn't really in my radar

How did it go?
I hope you made it to Europe! :) I just got back from Europe (Zurich,Munich,Budapest,Prague in 10 days!LOL) a week ago and I can honestly say that I think $2,000 (excluding plane fare) should be enough. You just have to be 'tipid' in some parts of your travel. :) Let me know how your trip went.

How did it go?
It was amazing! 5 countries (six if you include the Vatican) in 26 days. I've started writing about them. Good job girl :)

Thanks! I thought it looked very beautiful so I snapped a photo. It's only when I wrote this entry that I discovered that it's actually famous enough to have a name

Raphael is now my official favorite artist.
Oh the joy. that you say "After seeing thousands of paintings in one day you get tired of it and just look for the famous ones like the Da Vinci's, Raphael's, and Michealangelo's." Ah the irony of it Harold...you had to buy the souvenir fridge magnet within the Vatican walls to be authentic and it cost you three times more than outside the walls. So much magnificent art yet your everlasting memory is the ring that you slipped on and couldn't give back. Isn't travel grand? Always full of surprises!!!

Oh yes it is! Haha! I still wear the ring sometimes and it always reminds me of that moment at St. Peter's Basilica whenever I put it on

Multiple entry visa
Hey With your multiple entry visa were you able to stay for the months then depart Australia and re enter for 3 months again? If so, how long do you have to exit the country before re entry?

Multiple entry visa
Hi Kara! Yes you can re-enter for sure but I don't know how long you have to be away to go back. I guess a day outside of Australia is good enough?
