Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

photo (12)

We always do selfies when we travel. I’m not a narcissist or something. I do it to remember the place/s I’ve been to and to have a souvenir. Sometimes, I get lucky when someone will be there to take a picture of me when I travel. When you travel solo, you eventually learn the art of taking selfies be it a camera phone or a camera. This photo was taken at the Taj Mahal in India.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Samui

It’s been awhile since I posted on my website. Let’s just say, I was busy living my life, trying to get a hand of it and living in the real world. 😉 Now, I am back in the blogging world and ready to share my travel adventures. It’s a tad late but I like this challenge.

Living in the real world can turn you into a robot. You live by routines/schedules to a point that it gets monotonous. The solution? Escape. Escaping from reality can be as simple as doing a staycation and staying IN bed the whole weekend or it could mean doing something fun. My idea of escape is going to the beach to chill out and zone out. The photo above is from a recent escape to Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui. It is the famous beach in Koh Samui but I was able to find a peaceful spot to just lie down and enjoy the sun.

What’s your escape?

Photo of the Day – Living On The Edge

Batanes_DSC0060

I was on the lovely island of Batanes when I saw this animal grazing at the edge of the slope. I was so amazed that he wasn’t scared at all and was just too happy to eat all the grass. The buffalo even tilted his head and was observing me as I was taking his picture. How cute is that?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss

Chao Phraya_DSC0589

This photo was taken while I was enjoying the dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. This man was playing aboard the ship and playing sweet tunes with his saxophone. Every time he kisses the saxophone by the mouthpiece, beautiful melody fills the air setting a very romantic mood. Now that’s some magical kiss!

Photo of the Day – Love Day

Lake Sebu Feet

Today is Valentine’s Day and people all over the world are celebrating this special day with flowers, chocolates and greeting cards. I’m lucky to get loads of hugs and loving from kids where I work at. Love is not just for boyfriends and girlfriends. The photo above is a picture of buddies who love to travel and explore the world. Love is for everybody who appreciate the people in their lives for all the things and sacrifices they do because they care. Don’t forget to tell your family and friends how much you love them. Happy V Day!

Photo of the Day – The Bridge

Ayutthayabridge

Bridges are built to provide passage by connecting two islands or land masses separated by a body of water or a valley. It also provides aesthetic beauty to a landscape design like in the photograph above. This photo was taken in one of the temple complex that’s spread around Ayutthaya which is the ancient capital city of Siam or better known today as Thailand.

Photo of the Day – Dreaming

batanes guy
I dream of sunrise
I dream of sunset
I dream of places I long to visit
I dream of things I long to do
I dream of dreams that I wish will come true
Day by day
As time goes by
With a little hard work
And a firm determination
A dream comes true
Every sunrise
Every sunset
Every place and
Every new thing I experience
Makes my heart flutter with glee
Dreams do come true.
Not all at once.
But one dream at a time.
