'filipino by birth, world citizen by heart'

i love travelling and the experience of making new friends in every place i visit. i also enjoy learning about the local culture of those places. photography is of great interest too. although, i am far from being a professional photographer, i do enjoy the times i immortalized places i've been to my camera. Reading is a passion as well. i think it balanced my life somehow, i am very friendly so i am usually surrounded with people but reading always give me my own private downtime, and i relish every moment of those times.

Yes, I'm in Ohio right now. Just visiting my parents. Hopefully I will hitting the road soon. I'm surprised that you've been in Nigeria for this long and you're just now getting around to visiting anywhere else in the area. Hope you have a great time in Ghana and that you have a fun time for New Years!!!

You are welcome, Maricar! Glad you are doing well! I'm doing great! I sold my house and most of my stuff and left Florida. I'm with my parents for the holidays. Just got back from a 5 week road trip around the Northeast of the U.S. and some of Canada. Going to head west and up to Alaska with the new year. Hopefully back to Europe after that! Where are you headed to next?
