"Keep Walking..." danaiskra's Profile

My hometown

Manila. Raised and born here, in the middle of the bustling metro, grew up with cheesy noon-time shows, exposed to the heat of the urban vacuum.

I love Manila. But I have to get out from time to time.

Places I've been

i love the beach. And this is my almost always destination. I love the carefree aura of it. Sun, sand and saltwater. There are occasional mountains that I climb.. see, i'm a frustrated mountaineer..

Places that you can find on my VT pages:
Panglao, Bohol, with a brief stopover in Cebu
Panagbenga celebrations - my husband and I climb to Baguio every year
Mt. Pinatubo - love the sparkling crater
Anawangin, Zambales - mountain and cove
And my favorite place (so far) in the world - Sagada

My mode of transportation

Buses, trains, out-riggered boats, aeroplanes, tricycles, and legs.

Aside from the fact that I don't have a car, I love commuting.
Commuting immerses one to the a certain aspect of a culture. How does one get from point A to point B?

Places I'd love to visit...

1. Paris (Pareeh), France ... maybe someday when i'm rich enough. La Tour Eiffel et Le Louvre... ooh lala

2. The beaches of Thailand... the lagoon shown in "The Beach"

3. Cinque Terre... mixture of traditional Italian towns and the beautiful mediterranean sea.. plus authentic italian food.

4. Mt Pulag... up close and personal with the cumulu-nimbuses

i'll think of some more destinations... Any millionaire there willing to fund my travel plans? I promise I'll bring you souvenirs...
