2012



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.

With my original travel buddy, good friend Chie in Bolinao, Pangasinan



With Ivan BriƱas Cultura during our Post Office Building Heritage Tour



Tried surfing with new-found friends : Elal, Chino, Ivan, Me, Chie, Rop, Casi, Vincent and Jonas in Bagasbas, Camarines Norte



Dining out with Keith and Ephraim in Tacloban City, Leyte



Touring Guimaras island with my rubber sister Regine.



Trekking with my co-workers in Mt. Pinatubo


Wake-boarding with John Marx and Chino at CWC in CamSur




Chatting non-stop with Journeying Pinay, Heiz Ramos in Donsol, Sorsogon.



Koji of Japan and Aznaf from Malaysia.




Hanging out at Manila Zoo with Cris Reyes.




Food trip with Regin Reyno in Bangkok, Thailand. 




And of course, my travels will not be complete without bonding with my kitty-friends!  Meet Bo of Bohol, my most favorite.




And to all others who I have forgotten to include here, I just want to say thank you. Cheers to a new year of opportunities. Happy and safe travels! :-)
