"My Lakwatsas (travels)" sweet_sentiments's Profile


Travelling is a way of finding your personal space in every place that you set foot into. It's a way of pampering ones soul amidst the hustles and bustles of life.

I'm a Filipina who moved to Philadelphia. So I guess that makes me a Philly-pina, haha. Fine, fine, I know, corny.

When I moved to the U.S. my goal is to find a job in North Carolina (RDU area) because I love it there but then I saw the old and new buildings of Philadelphia (i love architectural structures) and just fell in love with the city. Plus ofcourse I met my husband here so I fell in love in Philly twice and the rest is history.

There are four things I am very passionate about. Food, books, photography and ofcourse travelling.... and this is where i'll be posting my travel tips.

Happy browsing!

      thanks - my freinds are up around Peurta Princesa but looking at flights again yest if i do travel to see them it looks as though separate flights from Manila are the cheapest for travelling on to NZ from, havent booked yet but the thought of going is quite exciting!
