You know how they say, "traveling is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer"? Well, I rarely say this but, they are right with that one. Completely submerged in the most pure and beautiful culture, I spent 17 days 8,000 miles away from home within the province of Pampanga. In 17 days, seeds were planted that ultimately changed my entire life. If I know anything to be true, the experiences of this trip will continue to unfold and blossom inside me forever. I have over 1,000 pictures and somewhere inside me, 1 million words to say.
