Selected Philippines Pics (Finally!)

I made an online album of selected pictures from my memorable trip to the Philippines. Two regrets: I wish I had at least one more week there instead of just two, and I wish I didn't get sick from the climate changes. I made the best of it, but some days I was walking around with a cloud around my head. There was much more to see, but I guess it leaves some for next time. I kept thinking to myself, why the heck did I not go sooner? It was great to meet family for the first time, I enjoyed spending time with my cousins...and I am forever changed after spending the day at the local spa and having a $4 dollar deep tissue massage! (I don't think I can dish out the money for getting massages in the USA anymore). Some of the sights were out of this world, literally - especially the "Enchanted River" which I enjoyed as well as the touristy Boracay island. After this trip, I got the travel bug. After all, I survived the long plane ride, right? The world is a beautiful place and there's so much to see. So what's next? Spain, Italy, the Grand Canyon? Who knows. I just know I can't wait until I get there.

Enchanted River sounds like Candy Mountain! Haha!

Don't get ME pumped to travel, that would be hopeless! Italy, though, someday....

Marie, those pictures are BEAUTIFUL. The Enchanted River looks amazing; I'd love to visit. And your cousin, she makes Mulan look blah. What natural beauty. We can see where you get it from ;) It looks like you and your mom and Grandma had a wonderful time. Your Grandma is so cool (the pink was so cute!)
