Travelling feeds our souls. Opens our eyes to the natural beauty of different culture, ethnic diversity, nature, places and the wonders of how God made the earth. To be able to travel means breathing in a new ideas, knowledge and memories of the places a person was able to traverse. It let us grow for a short period of time. It is one of a kind experience unique to each and every traveller and a lasting feeling that even memory would rust; the joy it gives will still be the same. It is the power of being able to travel.
Every time I am asked about what I want to become when I was young, my answer would always be A Traveller, a travel magazine writer in particular. I always receive a follow up question, why? My answer is always simple. I want to discover the world. Until today, my dream is still the same but deeper reason. I want to be enthralled by the beauty of nature, try the best food in every place in the world and to fulfil my promise to my mother that I will be able to go to places that she was not able to visit. There are a lot of places I have in mind local and foreign. But there are top three places I want to pay a visit. They are Cebu, Tagbilaran and Incheon, South Korea. As a traveller who is not able to step my feet in other islands apart from Mindanao, I am thrilled to share to you my travel destination wishlist.

I want to visit the queen city of the South, Cebu-the heart of Sinulog Festival. It is also the haven of my roots that is yet to be discovered. My father is from Argao, Cebu. They are twelve siblings. But I only know one of them. My father died when I was 18. We were not able to contact his family in Cebu and tell them what happened to my father. We do not have any communication and it hurts me the most. I want to visit Cebu to discover my roots. What does my father’s environment when he is still growing up? What are the faces of my father’s other siblings and my cousins? Most especially to bond with them because I am pretty sure that even we bump into each other in any place, we will never recognize each other. It is so sad for me. Secondary for me in visiting Cebu is to see for myself their majestic and world class white sand beaches. To experience watching whale shark in Oslob, eating the famous dangit dried fish and dissect the busy streets of Cebu City. It would be journey of a lifetime.

If someone would ask, “Who wants to visit Boracay?” I would definitely raise my hand and feet if it is what it takes to be able to travel to this wonderful paradise. Rated by many famous travel sites in the world as the best beaches in the world, it is definitely anyone’s dream destination and I’m not an exception to that. I want to experience plunging in the beach everyone is talking about. I want to touch its famous white sand and lie down to it. Party all night in different bars and eat its local delicacies. See for myself the beautiful sunset and sunrise. Take picture of it as well as part of my souvenirs. Immerse with the local in the place and listen to their stories about the famous landmark. I want to know more about the islands past, present and future. In that way, I will be able to have stories to tell when I leave the place. I want to be able to see Boracay not only as famous destination but as a home away from home.
Incheon, South Korea

Anywhere that is a part of South Korea, I will definitely want to step my foot in it. I am a big fan of the Halyu Wave. I am addicted to Korean movies, listen to their songs, dance in the tune of their music and cry in their taped melodramas. I can even memorize their names even in the snap of my finger. It is who I am. To be able to step in Incheon, South Korea will be a dream come true. I want to experience their different culture. Explore their history, in vibe their ideals and see their tourist spots. I want to visit their famous temples, eat their local delicacies and experience their hospitality. See for myself what the third biggest city in South Korea has to offer. I want to be lost their Chinatown, understand their rich history through their museums and walk in the streets of Incheon to observe the locals. Those top my list of what to dos.
