About The Blog

It all started when I had my first travel experience in November 2009. It was about reaching Mt. Batulao’s summit with a group of physically challenged people. The adventure was life changing and I fell in love with it, meeting amazing people from different walks of life and experiencing so many wonderful things. I was enamored by the idea that there’s more to see, discover, and experience in the vast world out there. I became passionate about documenting each travel and began sharing the stories and photos via this  blog.
