About

I want to write. And that is why I am here again, reintroducing myself in 2014, 3 years after I started this blog. Back then, I used this mainly as an avenue to find myself. It had no theme, no categories, no rules, no boundaries. It was meant to be a personal journal after all. From there, it molded itself into a travel blog. And it was a good ride, joining travel communities, exploring the country and nearby lands (the Philippines is a gem, by the way), taking upside down photos in every single island I set my foot on – all those things. I still get e-mails from people in other parts of the world complimenting my stories, photos and whatnot. It is them, actually, who inspired me to get my ass back here, trading sleep for a Great Perhaps.

And in this search for the Great Perhaps, I feel there is a need for a Great Shake Up. This blog. My perspective of the world. Life in general. We are going to break the walls we built around us in the past years. They are old after all (things get old so quickly these days). We are getting on a boat is what I’m saying, and we’ll push it to the sea, and we’ll see where it goes.

I guess we could say this is still a travel blog of some sort, although this time it’s more like a life travel blog. Or something. Hell, I really don’t know. And, perhaps, that’s the point.

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you’re afraid of, going out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that, that’s what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”

  1. i am planning to book for eskaya on our 10th wedding anniversary on May 15,2013… but you know, please can you pls give me an idea how much budget will i prepare.. its time for me to surprise my husband, of all our 9 years of marriage he never fail to surprise me, so this time , i would like to take the floor.. i envy you, or rather i am inspired by your blog with all the photography, it made sense

      1. thank you, Ms. Vida. After reading your blog, the more i’ve decided to spend our anniversary here in the Philippines. We always go out of the Country.. and like what I’ve told you i’ts always my husband’s idea or rather effort to celebrate that special occasion.
        I’ve read a lot of blogs from travelers like you, pero iba ka.. yung blog mo hindi sort of overly proud traveler but rather a traveler with a heart who is not selfish and but is willing to share the Joy and pride she experienced during her travel.
        God bless you more and continue to inspire us with your blogs!

        1. First of all, super super thank you for your comments. This really made my day. I’m very happy that you appreciate my posts and even happier that you actually take your time to comment. Hope you can spread the love. πŸ™‚

          I’d also recommend that you spend your anniversary here. There are A LOT of beautiful places and resorts in the Philippines – most of which I probably haven’t been to, and as compared to going out of the country, you could get to relax more if you’re not pressured to take tours.

          Let me know how your anniv goes ok? πŸ™‚

So, what do you think of this?
