Most Memorable Travel Experience
A lot! Maybe the Balloon ride in Kopadoccia, Turkey...I did it twice. Gondola ride in Venice, Beach in Boracay, Philippines and Cancun, Swiss alps, Papal audience with Pope Benedict in Vatican City, and many more.
I finally did my first long journey mostly by myself in South East Asia this year, a semi-backpacking trip for 3 months, and the experiences were memorable and unforgettable.

I also had my first meet-up with travel buddies in the Philippines, and the experience was... way beyond my expectations. We traveled as a group and explored the island of Cebu and Bohol. I met and made friends that I am still in touch with. I also join this South America trip next year(January 2017) with some Travel Buddies, and I couldn't wait to meet more friends on this trip.
