I love to travel. I like to move around from place to place and appreciate the beauty of my surroundings including nature and modern atmosphere. It jives with my personality of being such a curious cat. I probably have such a deep urge to discover where, what, when, why/why not, who, how and most of all discover the universe.
Movement is my life. I make sure that my lifestyle involves getting my feet busy — at home or at work (that’s why the recent gasoline price hikes affect me and my family because we’re such a gas patronizer and shifting to LPG has not occurred to us at least in the short term).
I would say that shopping is an inevitable hobby of mine as well. I mean, if I happen to pass by a certain market selling something that I like and screaming before me “buy me, buy me!” how could I resist? Believe it or not, food is not normally among them. The loud screamers are mini mementos that range from key chains, accessories, books, magazines CDs to bags, shoes and clothes among other small stuff that I believe I would not be able to find elsewhere.
I generally like the memories and adventure that go along with traveling. Each adventure leaves a piece of memento in my thoughts. Strangely, the ones that linger in my heart are those unplanned itineraries.
I’d probably share some of my traveling escapades in bits and pieces once I am able to find time to cool my heels and come to terms with my laptop one of these days.

MY FAVORITE TRAVEL QUOTES:
The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”
~ Martin Buber
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
~ J. R. R. Tolkien
