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. It's been almost a year since I've returned from my Philippines trip, however I still find myself stumbling over how to express it's significance to my life. Completely submerged in the most pure, and beautiful culture, I spent 17 days 8,000 miles away from home in a close family's home within the province of Pampanga in San Fernando. In 17 days, seeds were planted that changed my whole life. If I know anything to be true, the experiences of this trip will contninue to unfold and blossom inside me forever. I have over 1,000 pictures and somewhere inside me, 1 million words to say.
