From Henry Miller, “One destination is never a place, but rather a new way of seeing things.” It’s my travel diary talking.
In 2010 I left the Philippines and went to live in Switzerland. After four years and now married, I moved to another country. It’s Belgium this time.
Since then, I’ve been to several places, visiting other countries like France, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Hong Kong… So yes, my travel list is just getting longer and longer! All I can hope is that I can visit more places as much as I can.
I typically enjoy wandering around the city, visiting museums and sightseeing spots, dining in nice restaurants, relishing on local food and drinks, and shopping. I love the outdoors, most especially the beach life, simply because there’s a lot of beach islands in the Philippines. I also came to enjoy other activities like hiking, camping and biking. I have traveled alone (going solo in Rome for 4 days), but of course, having travel buddies is still the best.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
All I want is an online travel journal. From here, I can tell vivid stories of my experiences as a traveler with a perspective of a Filipina born and raised in the Philippines. I also share practical tips and advice for every destination – what to do, what to see, where to stay, what to eat, who to meet.
Europe is my home base now, so most likely I share stories of my travels more about this side of the world. Like anybody else, I want to visit all the countries in the world. But I’d rather travel slowly and get immersed in every beauty and culture that each destination has to offer.
My mission is to hear your stories of travels, too! I’d love to hear your views and opinions, your misadventures, and most especially, the lessons you learned – as we go out there and explore.
