Treasure Find 11:
Last December, something good and challenging came to my senses. As I ended my 2011, I became ready then to fulfill one major item in my goals for 2012! 'But the problem was choosing between two items to be fulfilled. Shall I buy an iPad2 or shall I go to Batanes?
It was a struggle. As a social media enthusiast, iPad 2 will be of big help. With iPad 2, I can stay connected, blog or post anytime, take fun shots and of course enjoy apps and games (and document the travel hehe)! But as a culture junkie, Batanes is equally appealing. It will be a great break from stressful life at the city and a perfect opportunity to discover not only an awesome place but myself.
And the verdict is... my ideal self won over my practical side :) . I just thought starting of the year with a life changing experience is the right choice as it can somehow give me a new perspective and lead me to new wonders in life. It may really sound too idealistic but for someone who thinks a lot and works to death, a breather is a real welcome treat. By not thinking for a moment and enjoying the scenery and experience, I just know that a better person will come out eventually. And with a place like Batanes, which was dubbed as the most photogenic place in the Philippines, how can I go wrong? :)
But as what shopping TV says, there's more! As I booked my Batanes trip in late 2011, I didn't expect that some more travel opportunities will be served on my plate in January 2012! Suddenly, there are trips to Tokyo, Japan (which happened just last week), a city in the Cordillera region and a place near Palawan. :) And true to my battlecry for the year, "New World in 2012", my first half will be full of explorations! Good times indeed! :)
And that's foydi's Treasure Find 11! :)
