    Boracay was one of the best times of my life! The beaches are just so beautiful and the people are so friendly. You sure brought back some great memories with these beautiful photos. I so need to visit Palawan!

    Hi Aubrey! I admire people who acknowledge their heritage even when they were born and raised somewhere else. I bet your parents made sure you’d feel connected to the Philippines, eh?
    I am a Filipina, with a Canadian passport. But I must say that it is still more fun in the Philippines!
    Keep on blogging!

    • Hi Lurhen, I think it’s super important for someone to still be connected to thier heritage. I take the initiative to travel back to the Philippines often on my own – I’ve explored more of the Philippines than my parents have actually haha. Also made some great friends living in Manila so it’s always nice to visit. Thanks for your commetn and support 🙂 Ax
