A Letter to 2019

A Letter to 2019

Thank you for the 365 days that we've shared together. It was really a memorable one. Unlike last year, I made sure to have at least one trip per month. I made sure that I have plenty of bonding time with my family and my cousins, hence we had a monthly hike to different mountains in the country.

Let's look back and see what milestones we've achieved this year.


1. This year, I was able to publish 77 articles (one article more than last year 😀). 

2. I have finally reached 2 million views


3. Several articles and photographs were published on different Facebook pages. I was also featured in next year's NAVI 2020 Travel Journal.

4. I got to travel back to Singapore with my QSR friends and to Japan with my family. I also got to visit several new destinations in the Philippines this year.


Speaking of travels, here are the highlights of my travels for each month last year:
