"Where Am I Heading Next???" barbie_sunrise's Profile
The best travel of my life to date is my experience when I went to Ozamis. This is i think the cheapest way to have an encounter with the Dolphins. They are so playful that they swim with you. Too close that you have to back out as to not to get too close to them. I want to go back soon :)

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
Im starting my engine now. Looking forward for VT meetings and travels!!!
In 2006, I signed up at Virtual Tourist, the site that always pops up whenever I'm doing research of my travel whereabouts. I never thought that it is not just an internet site but a group of travellers with one common interest which is TRAVELLING. It was only in May 2008 when I first made an appearance to a VT Meet that was followed by more meet. Meeting, Travelling and Enjoying the things the world to offer. For going to a year now being active, Im very much thankful to all the wonderful VT People. Hope to meet you all and travel with you SOON : )

Common Interest: Eating, Malling and Travelling
Im Barbie a.k.a. barbie_sunrise A reserved-type of person. One may find me silent and shy but im more of a listener though i can always breaks my silence with a nerve-wracking joke or a very serious comment (seriously...). I love travelling and taking photos.
Why sunrise? I love looking at the sunrise though I often missed it. Sunrise means ...... the sun is rising. Did I got it right??? : ) According to the lyrics of one of my favorite christian song, Sunrise takes away the darkness.
Im a traveller by genes. Me and my Siblings grew up going around the Philippines dragged by our mom as she works for a Government Agency. The most unforgettable memory that i had was going to a remote area in Mindoro with no water and no electricity. I wished that my mom's work will be done as soon as possible. he! he! Another is when I first experience going to Baguio in the early morning and leaving late at night going back to Manila.
Im also an Internist. Been in the medical industry for years now. Right now, working as a Dialysis Doctor opens my mind how lucky I am and my Family.
Here are my Advices:
Travel and Explore as much as you can
Drink water as much as you can
Eat moderately but tasting is good
Exercise now ( I wished)
because taking the chance is what you should grab. When its too late, sometimes its the end of the road. No turning back...
