2008 is another year. My wish for this year is to be able to travel to the different provinces in the philippines. I also plan to travel abroad, but before I do so I wish that to travel around the Philippines fist. How about you have you travel around your country yet?

I traveled ever since i got out of school and had many jobs in various states but after awhile all the hotel and motel rooms look alike and you eat in so many restaurants they seem to serve the same food..only some are more expensive and some are expensive but still taste cheap ...best chow i ever eat is prepared by myself...since my wife went back to the philippines for about 45 days I looked at the food we had in the freezer and in the pantry and just eat what we have on hand and still I could not eat all the foods...as well..i was on a diet too and ate only healthy ..like veggies and fish and rice...blah blah blah..but if I had any country to visit I would go to the Philippines as my wife just bought a house there so her brother and his family can live there...she was supposed to stay until May 28 but she got very sick and came home after 45 days and I could not go there and stay for three weeks like we plan..now we will wait until two more years as this is HER plan... if she was not sick i would have gone myself..but how can you leave a sick women? but such is life...there is always something and some reason for things but it is our winter in Michigan..usa..and it is very cold ..so cold that even i was born here i hate it..but for some reason my wife likes the cold winters over the heat of the Philippines...she always get the bad cough in the Philippines...go figure? We live by the Lake so we have a nice place here year around...but the people are very friendly in the Philippines...

I come from the UK. I love to travel. One of the trips that I would like to do is island hopping and snorkeling in the Philippines. I hope that you will enjoy traveling round your country, the beautiful Philippines and after that travel overseas. I was always in such a rush to get overseas that I neglected seeing my own country. I took a few trips in my own country and liked exploring historical sites, countryside and coastline. One summer I went to the Lake District and have exceptionally good sunny weather. I so enjoyed taking in the natural beauty and warm sunshine. I do take weekends away in my home country but train fares are expensive and accommodation costs quite a lot. I feel happier flying off somewhere tropical than spending lots of money traveling in my own country. I would like to walk some of the long distance paths and tour round the UK. It might be fun for me to plan a route round the UK and see how much this would costs. Lots I think.

I started travelling internationally just recently due to my job. Locally, I have not left Luzon except for 1 Boracay trip ( - which was also work-related ). I have driven to Baguio and Tagaytay a lot of times, and only went to Puerto Galera thrice. I'd like to see Palawan, Cebu, Davao, Bohol and other Visayan or Mindanao cities ... and hopefully, it won't be work-related! I want to have some fun!! PS: Everytime I leave the Philippines and view our country above the sky ... I realize that our country is indeed beautiful. :-) Our islands look cute from above.

like you, i'm from the philippines too. :) i have traveled extensively in the last 8 years because of my work at international ngos. i must have traveled in all regions of the philippines but not the tourist areas. i really plan on going to batanes but that has not happened yet. i have roamed the whole mindanao but only gone as far as jolo, sulu and lamitan, basilan... not yet to tawi-tawi. i like visiting and traveling to new areas. the first time is always a thrill and quite memorable. goodluck to your 2008 wish... hope you do travel to our different provinces... meet a lot of nice people... see great sights... and eat great food!!! hahaha i haven't been to the us, europe or australia... but here in asia (i've only been to 5 countries i think), the best one i have seen so far is jeju island in south korea. :)
