AS WE WERE ISLAND HOPPING BACK IN ZAMBALES THE OTHER DAY AND AS THE WIND HIT MY FACE WHILE WE’RE RIDING THROUGH THE WATERS, I BECAME MORE CONVINCED OF ONE THING – THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I WANT TO DO UNTIL MY LAST BREATH.

Every time I get to see a place that I once just dreamt about, I lose myself. I feel tears coming every time I get to set foot on a place that I used to only drool about in photographs. It seems so surreal that I have already finally gotten there and see it so up close.

Every time I see a mountain, all I can think about is how much I want to reach the top and see the view from up there. (I’m not even kidding)

I always think to myself, “Yup, this is it. This is what I want to do for the rest of my life. This is what I will live for.


I would climb mountains even though my breathing is not really for it and may disagree but my heart would keep on yelling ‘heck,yes!‘ just to see more of this, just to be able to go further.


In all honesty, travelling is one of the few things that make me feel good about myself (for not many things and aspects of my life do). And everytime I have a problem that may seem so heavy and big to me, everything in my mind disappears as I get to be a witness of things that are bigger than my problems, that is bigger than the world I live in, that is more freeing than the mind I am in.

It makes me feel pretty good for a girl who seem to have no idea what to do in this world, for someone who just can’t seem to get a grasp of this ‘adult life’. Hah.

I see mountains silhouetted past other mountains blanketed in green, I see the sea with shades of blue and green I could not even name, I see the sky that seems to always look different from place to place and all I really wanted to do is grasp it in my hands and my soul feels at peace.

I want to live for more moments that take my breath away. I want to live for more moments that make my heart race out of my chest. I want to live for more moments that make my head feel serene. I want to live off of my adrenaline to find tranquility.

This is what I want for the rest of my days.
