Majority of the people I know includes this place to their dream destinations. I am one of them before. 

But after making it possible, can’t imagine that Santorini have so much things to offer more than the famous caldera view. 


This place is simply amazing.

From the cave houses in the caldera, the breath-taking sunsets, nice people, wonderful food and the once in a lifetime adventure that this place can offer.

Definitely I want to visit this place again. 

Thank you, Santorini!

This is Netherlands!


Visited Europe for the first time and we started the 18-day trip with this lovely country The Netherlands also known as Holland.

One of the few places I can see myself moving someday.

We had a few stops to explore this one-of-a-kind country from the city of Amsterdam, Keukenhouf in Lisse, the windmills in Zaanse Schans, the peaceful seaside village of Volendam and the countryside of Marken.

Part of Apple World Gallery #ShotOniPhone6    This place is simply paradise. A must-visit destination in the Philippines.

It is the northernmost province of the Philippines and is also the smallest province, both in terms of population and land area.

The provincial capital is Basco on Batan Island. Only 100 nautical miles from Taiwan.                      A 2-hour domestic flight from Manila via Philippine Airlines.

25-minute boat ride to cross from Batan Island to Sabtang Island.

The islands have limited internet access and the place is so peaceful that will help you de-stress and be one with nature.

The amazing landscape views are one-of-a-kind that makes me appreciate life more.                                     

This is Myanmar

Myanmar -Officially called Republic Union of Myanmar or more popularly known as “Burma”.
This is the largest country in the South East Asia that is not an island.

A Communist country that only earlier this year they opened it’s door to Filipino tourist without needing any visa for a maximum of 14 days of stay. This is one of the less travelled country in Asia that one should not miss in their lifetime.

Many travellers consider this country as part of their dream destination because of it’s regal beauty and exotic wonders that you can’t afford to miss.

I started planning around January this year when the government announced the non-requirement of visa but I waited until November to visit because of the hot air balloons over the ancient city of Bagan during sunrise. They will be a visible morning fixture until March only every year.

This is definitely one of my top travels and one of the most memorable ones.
People are using US Dollars and Kyats as their monetary unit. 1 USD is to 1,000 kyats. Almost the same.

Boracay like no other.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Boracay is an island of the Philippines located approximately 315 km (200 miles) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of the island of Panay in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. In 1990, it was voted by the BMW Tropical Beach Handbook as one of the best beaches in the world and again in 1996 by British publication TV Quick as the world’s number one tropical beach. In 2007, Boracay island topped the list of the World’s Most Popular Beach according to Yahoo! Travel.

Everyone has been raving about this world’s famous beautiful island of my motherland Philippines.

Balance with all the elements  scorching sun, clear waters, fine sands, colorful local culture and pure fun.

This is still one of my favorite places on Earth no matter what.

The Magic of New York

Image

Empire State Building, Bryant Park, The Largest Macy’s, Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Philippine Consulate, Riding the nyc subway, Ruby Stairs, NYC Yellow Taxi, The Smoke of New York and many more.

This is a life-long dream that made history.

Being in New York City was always been on the top of my travel wish list.ImageImageImageImageImage

To see the snow covering Central Park, to visit Philippine Consulate along 5th Avenue where my sweet cousin works, witness how really bright  Times Square was, fall-in-line at Broadway, seeing a celebrity walking in any streets of NYC, looking up to see Chrysler and Empire State Building, riding the Subway, kneel in-front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral’s altar, to see how beautiful Rockefeller Center’s Christmas Tree and most especially to know how it feels like standing in The Big Apple; what a memorable experience for me flying alone going to East Coast.

Image“This photo of mine was taken from afar riding the ferry ship from Liberty Island showcasing a spectacular cloud formation over Downtown NYC.  This is my most memorable portraiture of my photography career because it was published by Lonely Planet Asia (released in Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Thailand) and eventually it was chosen by Lonely Planet UK. Both published in widespread.”

The Natural Beauty of Langkawi

Image

“Langkawi, officially known as Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah (Malay: Langkawi Permata Kedah) is an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. The islands are a part of the state of Kedah, which is adjacent to the Thai border. It is also known as the “City of Tourism” of Malaysia.

Langkawi means reddish brown eagle in colloquial Malay. The Malay word for eagle is helang – shortened is “lang”. Kawi means the colour reddish brown.”

Image

It was a getaway trip to pause from our busy city lives to endure fresh air and shore sun.

We stayed in the luxurious The Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa with the help of my auntie Brenda in Sacramento. We never thought that Langkawi is a hidden treasure somewhere in Malaysia. I have been to Desaru and Kuala Lumpur but nothing compares the special beauty of this island.

Spectacular sunrise and sunset, warm loving people, amazing views, delicious local cuisines that comes with a cheap price tag, the Andaman Sea at it’s finest and the scary but thrilling cable car ride that I never imagine myself doing it.

This is truly one of the best I’ve been so far and surprisingly we never met any other Filipinos on this trip.

Mystical Mount Bromo

 

Image

A short but memorable trip just to satisfy my wanderlust alter ego.

Flying from Singapore to Surabaya in East Java, Indonesia then a 5-hour drive up to Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park staying overnight in the last village Cemoro Lawang in Probolinggo.

Gunung Bromo in the local tongue is an active volcano that sits in a sea of sand.

Even though that the main purpose of this trip is to witness the mystical sunrise of Bromo but due to inevitable reasons the weather is not perfectly fine during the early hours of the day.

But in God’s will, It was in a perfect dramatic condition when we were about to shoot in the vast plains.

This place is one of best scenic routes in Asia that I will surely giving another try.

I am happy that I chose this trip for my CNY break. The traveler in me ignites everytime I hear Bromo.

I am just too excited for my next adventure.
