A Letter to 2018


Thank you for the 365 days that we've shared together. It was really a memorable one. I was quite busy this year due to work-related stuff but I managed to squeeze in several local trips. Regardless, I made sure that I have a grand trip with my family too, hence we had a 22-day vacation in Japan as the highlight of this year's travels.

Let's look back and see what milestones we've crossed and achieved this year.


1. This year, there were 76 published articles (fewer than last year 😢). 

2. I have reached 1.7 million views. 

3. I was invited to promote a beautiful resort in Taal, Batangas.

4. Several articles and photographs were published in several magazines.

5. I got to travel back to Japan with my family and also visit several new destinations in the Philippines this year.

Speaking of travels, here are the highlights of my travels for each month last year:
