where do we go from here?

Why I want to travel?

Simply because I want to see beautiful places, discover cultures, bring memories and learn something.


I become a better man when I got home from the mountains.

I enjoy going to rural places, where i can see the beauty of nature, walk in the town with the local people, discover their cultures, try the way they live, eat their local delicacies and of course learn from them. i usually travel with companions, with my former College classmates with co-teachers.

I usually travel with companions, with my former College classmates with co-teachers. I want to try to travel alone but I never try it at all, hoping to have the courage, time and budget to do it. I have plan to do it for the first time but I failed to do so, I work on making my itinerary, scout on the hotels on where to stay, plan my food, I even research on the tiange (market day) day of the Town.

Every time I go to a trip, hiking, travel, out of town, etc. I am always excited to bring something to my family the things, food that is local in the area and they never taste and seen it before.

Many people ask me what do you get in hiking, traveling it’s just a waste of time and money. It is the common question that every hikers travelers receive. We have many answers to this questions but the common denominator is, we appreciate the beauty of nature which is God’s gift to us that needs to preserve for our future generations.

These are the places that we find true peace of find, true people with genuine intentions, simple people with good spirit.

and most of all it always reminds me that it is not easy to get in to the summit  not easy to succeed . It always begins with a single step, need to work for it, need to earn for it, need to be strong and never give up. (because there is a summit behind all those trails)



i am
