It was just a dream to travel before, as I see remarkable places on books and on the Internet. Now i'm living my dream as I set foot on different places I've never been before. And before going out of the country, it would be great to discover our very own country first. I realized that Philippines offers the best destinations for adventures, relaxations, and tropical beauty.



October 2012 marks my first travel as I was invited by an officemate to try Surfing at La Union. It was a six hour bus ride from Manila to La Union, that was the longest trip I had that time. And off into the ocean I went looking for my very first wave. I've stumbled many times and I drank a lot of sea water but still, I tried it again and again. Suddenly, I found myself standing on the surfboard riding my fist wave like I want to suspend time. Paddling hard and catching up the next one. By the end of the lesson I was exhausted, but happy to say that I have learned something new in my life.

Each day passes and I felt the wanderlust spreads on my DNA. I went back to La Union the next month and at the next month. It seems that i'm now addicted to travel.

Aside from the waves, I also fell in love with the mountains. January 2013, when I climb to my first summit at Taal Volcano. Despite of the energy draining heat of the sun, it was a breathtaking view at the top. And I have told to myself that time, there is always more to discover, more to love and more beauty to appreciate. I promised to myself that I will travel at least once a month. Ensuring that I will save an amount from my salary for my passion to travel. Because i realized that travelling is an investment you can make for yourself and so I encourage you to work hard and save for your travels.

Travelling has changed and influenced my life. I will be forever grateful for the blessing of travelling and hope to share my adventures with people. Because for me, adventure is the best way to learn.
