Of year-ends and anniversaries

So I haven't created a year-end post for 2013 because I wanted it to be just one in time for my January anniversary post! 2013 was full of surprises, good and bad, and I wouldn't want it any other way because it gave me so much to learn and to look back. December-January is like a goodbye and hello for me. December - a constant goodbye and thank you for the year that was. And, January, an anticipation for another year that will be.

So, here I am in the last week of January, too late for a year-end but in time for my blog's 3rd anniversary, looking back to the year that was 2013:

Tagaytay, the beautiful sunrise that started my year.

Nature tripping at Subic.

A taste of Caracol festival in Makati.

Captured by Angono's beauty.

Challenged with Sagada's different adventures!

Finally reached the scenic Banaue.

And some dreams came true when my eyes laid on Batad.

Was at the cloud-9 when I reached Luzon's highest at Mt Pulag.

We wandered and got lost during our Pico de Loro's descend.

Beach after 6 months (wheew, that long) in Bataan.

Surprised by my first on-the-spot photo contest in Tagaytay.

Came back to Subic for more nature adventure! 

A surprise beauty from my province, Negros Oriental.

Got some photos published in Cosmopolitan PH :3

More summer fever from La Union.

And watched the stars while we were there.

Came back for Tagaytay's vintage side.

Unforgettable summer with college buddies in Boracay.

Found Cebu's isolated beauty at Bantayan Island.

Resigned from my job and went back to my province, Negros Oriental.

Found new opportunities in Taguig.

Came back to Pasay's and Tagaytay's iconic beauty.

Experienced my first Christmas away from home, Dumaguete, but made it for New Year.

Wheeew, what a year that was! To another year of travels and memories, cheers!

Congratulations! Great collection of photos but one that captures my heart was the "Starry Night" photo you had. That is one amazing shot. Cheers for more years to come!
