Celebrating 1 Year with Go Pro!

Konnichiwa!

Can you imagine how time flies so fast? It was only last December of 2014 when my generous mother gave me one of the best Christmas present, a Go Pro Her 4 Silver Edition. Perfectly, it suits my personality because I love to travel and photographed the places I’ve been to! 📷

Let’s take a glimpse on where we have been for the past twelve months!

DECEMBER of ’14

We decided to spend our year-end climb at Mount Maculot, weather was not friendly then but we still push through with our exchange gift at the campsite.

We are really a small family, relatives are mostly living abroad, but we always make sure to have a Merry Christmas for His birthday!

Case Verde served as our last ‘mondate’ for 2015.

I also started the year by not missing the chance to see Pope during his Papal Visit 2015. Thanks for making this possible Kuya Lawrence!

MARCH

I didn’t visit any places this month, we had to prioritize some family needs so I just focused starting on my DIY Room Renovation – I personally painted my walls from pink to white, installed wall shelves (w/ Lolo’s help) and bought a new bed & mattress.

Two more weeks before we end the year and I still have new places to go, will surely update this post SOON! =)


I just tried to choose one to two photos per city/gathering just to give you a highlight of where I was this Year of the Sheep! As you notice, I was in the Philippines for the first half of 2015, it will always be my home. On its second half, I decided to be with my family. Everyone close to me knows that I made my own choices between these two countries. I had so much changes and adjustments, but everything is possible with Him.

It was a ‘happy yet nerve-racking adventure’ kind of 2015 for me and my family. We survived family challenges and I think my Lola would be happy seeing us together. I’m still thinking of Lolo back in the Philippines, but he will be less troubled now that his two sons and grandchildren are with him. We are very grateful, millions thanks to the man above. ☝️

Despite of the events in our family, I am still able to go places and enjoy life (Thanks Ma, I love you!). I am still smiling regardless of my personal issues. I think that’s how life is supposed to be, to keep your world rolling even if it’s heavy, even if it’s hard.

2 countries, 25 cities.

Numbers above is just a recall, I am not rushing into booking airfares because I still prefer a trip with plans without going broke (that sounds painful, right?). I believe in right timing, if it feels good on the inside, then you may take an action to pursue it.

Think about the pros and cons. 👌

On the brighter side, I just renewed my passport for the third time, and I am preparing something special and memorable for 2016. I’ll surely make it happen with His provision. 👣🌏✈️

See you on my next adventure!

xoxo,
