I have to admit it was all unexpected but 2016 proved to be a year of new travels for me 🙂 I was given the opportunity to travel 3 new places this year:
- Bukidnon – my very first trip to the “Baguio City” of Mindanao, Philippines happened last May. I had the chance to experience the beauty of Dahilayan. More about it on a coming post.
- Kalibo – I discovered that this laid-back city is actually another cool gateway to the world-famous Boracay beach in the Visayas, Philippines aside from Caticlan. I will be writing more about this October trip to Kalibo soon. By the way, prior to this trip, the last time I went to Boracay was already about a decade ago!
- New Zealand – My husband and I had the amazing opportunity to explore both the North Island and South Island of this beautiful country very recently. In fact, we just arrived from this trip yesterday 🙂 And yes, you will be hearing more about our lovely time there right here in this blog.
I am grateful to God for surprising me with these trips this year. While I had a desire and plan to travel to new places this year, I did not actually think at first that it would be possible 🙂 And so I am reminded of that saying: “be careful of what you wish for, you might actually get it.” Well, I am glad with what I got so far 🙂
