Why do you travel?
Apart from learning, discovering new things and making memories with my children and bestest of friends, I travel to make my dreams come true and to reward myself for the accomplishments I made as my job is challenging and always tough.
What did you love most about your trip?
Everything. The Holy Land pilgrimage was almost perfect even the weather cooperated with us. The tour coordinators and experts did a wonderful job, or better a mission in helping us understand and appreciate more about the life of Jesus.
What’s the one thing you won’t forget?
The station of the cross at Via Dolorosa, the visit to the sculpture of the Homeless Jesus, the extra special care of John Axalan and the tour guide/expert in Israel and Cairo.
What will you come back for in this trip?
The pilgrimage is a once in a life-time experience and I have seen more than enough.
Did this trip inspire you in any way? How?
Yes, the pilgrimage opened my eyes to what I can learn and experience further in other places.
Why do you think Filipinos should travel?
Traveling gives meaning to one’s life
Any travel tips/hacks you’d like to share?
Choose the right luggage especially your carry-on bag. I used the luggage given by my friend and didn’t bother to check its weight. Be mindful of the 7kg limit.
Why did you choose to #travelwithaccess?
I came across Travel with Access Travel in IG and saw that all the reviews were very good in FB.
What are the places in your travel bucket list?
Marian Pilgrimage (particularly, a visit to Basilica of St. Therese de Lisieux), Europe, Spain, Portugal in 2020. I started rewarding myself in 2014 (after all my children graduated from college) and have been to 17 countries already (all by God’s grace). I am thinking of where to bring my 4 grown-up children next as we all went to Korea and Tokyo. I hope you can come up with an affordable package for a family of 5! 😊
