When I was younger, I thought traveling is only for rich and fortunate ones. Who has big accounts, but nahhh you have to be creative, you have to research and plan your travel – inshort DIY so you can save money.
I always enjoy traveling to our province in Bicol and Pangasinan. These are the two provinces in the Philippines I frequently go and Tagaytay which is a 1.5hr drive from my house here in Manila. A few years back, when I still don’t own a good SLR and I only rely on my mobile phone so I can capture my memorable memories to places where I travel. And now that I own an SLR, I still use my mobile phone for an unexpected capturing of a subject.
I enjoy traveling via airplane and enjoying the view on the window seat. Capturing clouds, the tail of the plane, wing of the plane and landscape is priceless for me.

Because of traveling, I became an active person again! I now enjoy hiking, searching for falls, volcanoes and great scenery on top of a mountain.

One of the many things I enjoy while traveling is experiencing local food and especially coffee if the place or country offers it.
I also enjoy walking around the street at night and day with friends. You will see unexpected subject to capture. These mobile phones are my go-to camera/bestfriend on the road esp if it has a very good camera that can produce quality photos just like the Huawei P9 that has a camera and co-engineered by Leica. It has dual back camera that can produce high quality photos like monochrome, colored, light painting photos and even slo-mo. How great is that?

Traveling makes me more appreciate LIFE, NATURE, and PEOPLE around especially on how to mingle with them and when I travel abroad with a different culture and belief of a country.

Regardless of different personality, culture and belief, I always gain new friends alongside with the photos I captured, experiences I endure, great memories that will always be remembered and friends (old & new) are the precious gifts to anyone who loves traveling.
