Off To A New Start

My constant readers may have noticed that I only got two travel entries last December 2012.  I actually had several posts readied for posting but for some reason I didn't feel like publishing them.  The Holidays arrived and I found myself hibernating in my own world.  New year was around the corner and I only get to talk to my family.  I have not even thought of going online to check my Facebook account or e-mail address for updates and messages.  Why?  I do not know either.

I had a full and blessed 2012.  Travels were abound and I have gained many friends.  The most rewarding is the exhilirating feeling I embrace after every travel.  The welcoming feeling of successfully conquering a place you have never been to, mentally ticking off one destination in my travel list.


I am not that young anymore nor am I that too old.  I still see a full life ahead of me.  With God's permission, I will still get to travel even if my hair is as white as snow.  


Something loved me. But something, which I thought would be within me no matter what happens, left me.  Oh well, now I can prove that no matter if you give your all, something will still leave you, abandon you in the dark, cold and alone.

A few days after new year's day.  I found myself reading my travel posts for the past 12 months.  Up until now I still couldn't believe I was able to accomplish all those adventures!  Something made me sad during the last part of 2012.  However, travelling back in time helped me realize I was truly blessed and there are many others who willingly appreciate my efforts and company.


I read almost all of my entries and I found myself getting super excited again!  Found myself again staring at Google Maps (my favorite past-time). Found myself eager to meet new friends along the road. And found myself no longer sad since something left me all alone.


Now I see 2013 brighter than ever!  I fully understand now what they say when things don't go as you wished for or something made you sad, traveling is the best remedy there is.


And off I will travel again to where my itchy feet will lead me.  Off to a new start.  Off to a new beginning.
