There are places on this planet that I have always longed to see. I have always wanted to travel to different parts of the world. First, discovering the many beautiful places in my home country the Philippines and step by step, the world. Traveling has become my passion. If given a chance, I would love to explore the mystical land of Egypt and decipher its alluring mysteries. All inclusive holidays to Egypt nowadays are becoming affordable. In the Philippines, there are many beautiful places to see and discover. But if there is one city I would love to live and grow old, it would be my home City of Davao. Why? Very simple. LIFE IS HERE.
