Keep the Fire Burning for Your Dream Destinations!


Social networks or the internet virtually bring you to places via pictures of different beautiful scenery that various places could offer. I, for one, am constantly amazed by the pictures I have seen especially to those where I've never been.

One of my ultimate dream destinations is England! Why does it have to be England? We'll basically that dream to go there sparked when I was still in college and I met an inspiring college Math professor who is from that place. Who wouldn't fall in love with a place where you can constantly hear the British accent from the locals? And not to mention the picturesque places I've been dreading to take a glimpse of. The architecture, the language, the places, the culture... At one point, I wish I was rich enough to pursue post graduate education there and immerse with their culture to fully understand and learn. But then real life came after graduation and I was faced with more challenges that I have never imagined. The spark that has once shined so brightly was slowly fading. It was one the lowest moment in my life where I lack inspiration that almost made me lose hope.

Then I came to know photography and became an enthusiast. And through the internet, I become an ultimate fan of a female half pinay travel photographer who has gone to places that I've been dreaming of, and one of those places is England! With another hope that came, that dream of mine sparked again. 

Another destination I'd love to go is this (see picture below). But I am quite not sure where it is. Some says it is in Maldives while others say it is in Calaguas. The dream to go there added with the mystery of where it truly is on earth is just enough for me to get inspired to set foot on that little paradise!

To fulfill these, I need to finish my four year bond in the country (scholarship agreements), help my family and be location/financially independent. Until then, let's just keep the fire burning for these dream destinations of mine! :)
