December of last year, I was invited by my Aunt to join her on her trip to Vietnam, then Cambodia, then Thailand all in the span of ten days. Being the wanderlust that I was (and it is my first time to go out of the country), I said yes. We were set to meet in Hanoi since she would be coming from Hong Kong, and I would be coming from the Philippines. And of all the places in those three countries we traveled to, Hanoi was by far the best one for me. Why?

I am a firm believer of living life and making decisions for the sake of happiness. But I am also an advocate of “C’est la vie”, accepting whatever life throws in front of you. I love travelling and learning about different things from different places, understanding and knowing the story of a place. I love reading books, watching movies and series, and trying out new food places. I do the occasional 3-km fun run and a hike here and there, but I’m not a sporty person. I love the ocean but I live in the mountains.
