Hi! I'm Angelica/Angge. Welcome!

It's been more than a decade of making traveling a life priority.

From my crazy days quitting my stressful finance job back when I was 25 to travel around Southeast Asia, India and trekked the Himalayas - to all my travels in between and trying to live back home in Manila.

To just recently finishing a 4-month trip in South America, another dream six years in the making.

I guess this blog is a reminder, mostly for myself of my youth trying to live life to the fullest - however it meant for me back then.  It's so tempting to delete this blog because I know I'll be rarely posting on it. But there's still something telling me to keep it. I guess it's a documentation of a piece of my life that I could look back on, laugh and probably cringe on, and remind me of who I am at my core.

And also, I love taking photos. To see more of them visit my FlickrExposure, and Instagram accounts.

I've also contributed some travel posts/articles on Passion Passport, you can read them here:

"Viva la vida a concho. Es la mejor manera. Vivir cada minuto intensamente porque la vida es muy corta y de repente, llega el momento en que nos vamos a morir y habrĂ­amos deseado hacer las cosas que no las hicimos. Por eso, cada minuto hay que disfrutarlo. Hay que disfrutar de la vida. No tratar de tener tantas cosas, de adquirir tantas cosas sino que de tener vivencia. Lograr todo que queremos hacer. No importa la fuerza que esto se merezca pero vale la pena. La vida es muy corta y hay que gozarla." - Spanish Old Man in departures. season 2 chile episode 

in English:
"Live life to the fullest. It's the best way. Live every moment intensely. Because life is too short, and the moment comes when we're going to die, and we'd have wished to do so many things we didn't. That's why we have to enjoy every moment. One must enjoy life. Try not to acquire so many things, but instead have experiences. Accomplish everything you want to do, no matter the effort that it deserves. Life is too short and one must relish it."
