"I fell in love with the world in you."

"I would die everyday waiting for you."

Sometimes, when you go to a new place that captures your heart, there's a feeling inside you saying you were born in a wrong country. You just want to be in that new place, start a new life and be a new person or the person you dream to be. Without having the trouble of undoing your past, dealing with your old timid and nervous self.

Things I Love Pt. 3: Vintage Photos of Women

"Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That's part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads - at least that's where I imagine it - there's a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in a while, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you'll live forever in your private library." Haruki Murakami

"It's times like these I wish I was silently wrapped around you."

Predictability can be boring. What you might learn from it is something you've probably thought of before it even happens. Predictability can be just satisfying. What you have been looking forward to happens as it is. 

I want neither of the two. I want “authentic” experiences, perhaps no one can relate with. I think “curating” one’s experiences in attempt to relate with other people’s experiences isn’t always a good thing. Everyone goes to the places everyone had been. Everyone tells the same experiences going to the same places. That hampers our minds to create experiences that stay true to who we really are.

My skin is burnt as hell. The experience wasn’t what you’d call an ideal scenario of a getaway. But one of the things that made it remarkable was that it stayed real to me, or rather I stayed real to the experience.

GOING TO PUNDAQUIT ZAMBALES, TOO? Here's how! But make it your own authentic experience and look at the view from your own lens.

"We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down."

It’s Summer! Summer excites everyone, even for someone who isn’t so fond of it. Like me. Something in it awakens us – the heat, the long holidays, the school break, the summer flings. Stop waiting, plunge in the heat, spend the long breaks, and create adventures.

With that, I give you my recent Corregidor Island memories. Oh, how the magic of time can transform a tumultuous past into a calming beauty!

I know you're thinking of visiting the island, too, at this point. Check these sites to know other people's experiences hopping to the island and for further help in your itinerary and budget. This is another free trip for me. Yay! Eat at the hotel, not on the beachside. Trust me.
