WELCOME! You’ve just come across a travel journal of Traveling Nomad that hopes to chronicle series of humble travels and exciting journeys to the best kept secrets of the 7,107 Island of the Philippines and perhaps the world. My name is OLAN and I am your humble “Travel Teller”.
Cliché, life is a journey. A voyage. So does mine. I believe there is a “traveler” in all of us waiting to be ignited. Waiting to be pushed. But once it fired up, it is incredibly unstoppable. The travel continues. The travel goes on and on. And on. Believe me, I’ve experienced all these.From islands to highlands, from the plains to the hills, from rural to urban, from home and to the places I’ve never imagined to see. These are my humble travels. My humble experiences.
The BEACH becomes my favorite sanctuary and beach lounging becomes my preferred past time. At times I think my father is Poseidon and I am the son of the beach. Funny but true. I’ve been to many beautiful beaches in the Philippines but still longed to visit more.
Experiencing grandiose WATERFALLS are therapeutic escapades to me. Its beauties are magical and undoubtedly breathtaking. Its mists are curative and its cascading sound is melodic. Waterfalls, oh, how I love thee. I’ve been to many magnificent waterfalls in the Philippines but still longed to visit more.
Climbing MOUNTAINS are godly experiences, I consider. The trek is a no joke and ascending heights are never easy. But once the summit is reached, the feeling of fulfillment will immediately take all the weariness away. Indeed, rewarding. I’ve been to some majestic mountains and volcanoes in the Philippines but still longed to visit more.
Learning CULTURE and HERITAGE from every travel I have is a great experience. It is like opening my doors to the windows of the other world. Something substantial and educational. Eye-witnessing to the different amazing worlds apart from mine. I’ve seen and witnessed some in the Philippines and beyond but still longed to see more.
My itchy feet have brought me to the different parts of my Island Philippines and let me experienced the splendor of my country. Each of the places I see has beautiful stories. Gorgeous landscapes and breathtaking sceneries. Selfish, I am not; sharing these beautiful stories showcasing picture perfect photographs of each place I visit will make each of my travel worthy and meaningful. Besides, these photos are worth sharing than being kept in a dormant hard drive.
From here, I start my TRAVEL TALE. Let me be THE TRAVEL TELLER that hopes to share my travel stories and experiences about several destinations in my Island Philippines and perhaps the world, some known, some never heard of and some you don’t know much about.
WELCOME to these travels! I am your Travel Teller and I am ready to tell!
