The year 2012 was a very great year of travelling for me. Aside from exploring new places in and out of the country, the most rewarding I have had the past year was the numerous friends I have met and kept along the way.
Even though my bank account turned to zero-balance at some point, I will not exchange this for the ultimate gift of friendship. As they say, the love between friends is the most enduring. As I recall the past year, I find myself smiling at times while I stare at the various photographs I have with them.
To my travel buddies, I miss you a lot. I hope we will still travel again sometime in the future. For the mean time, I will be finishing writing my tri-country series and finalize my travel bucket list for this year.
Join me as I look back at these sweet times. Let’s travel back down memory lane. I am sincerely hoping that this list will grow extensively towards the end of 2013.
