This is the very first post of this blog and supposedly, we’re to write something deep explaining why we started this blog and an invitation for you to follow our travel journal. 😀
Though we already explained the reason behind the creation of this blog on our About Us page, I thought it’ll be appropriate for us to write a formal introduction. The truth is I don’t know where or how to start, but let me just try.
Aside from our passion and love for food and cooking (have you seen Certified Foodies?), one of the many things our nanay inspired us to do is to travel as much as we can. She loves to travel and she’s already been to different parts of the country. However, due to our finances – she was the only breadwinner of our family when we were growing up – her budget for traveling was limited. That didn’t stop her though from doing what she can to take a vacation and travel somewhere she’s never been. And I admire her for that. We still can’t figure out how she did all that while sending my brother and I to very decent schools while feeding our family of 4.
This is why we vow to travel more, not just for our sanity, but for our nanay as well. We want to travel the world with her, let her see the wonders of the places we only see on TV or on the internet.
Mostly, though, this is for US… for me. I’m a workaholic. Even when it’s my rest day, my dedication to my work, whatever it is, never stops me from checking in at work to see how my team’s doing. But when I travel, I realized it’s easier for me to allow myself to cut my connection from all the stress of work, other people, and even my blogs. I give myself a chance to pause and relax. And I always come back with a different perspective in life (ugh… too cliche).
