When you try your best not to smile just thinking about that person, getting butterflies in your tummy and feeling kilig inside. All these can be signs of falling in love but when it happens, you just know. It's the best feeling in the world. #ThatFirstFeeling of falling in love is exactly how @irwindg makes me feel everyday. I can't wait to marry you in a few months . #WorldTravellerPH #WorldTravellerGlobal #KaPrimerFirstFeeling
#ThatFirstFeeling that you have hiked 6 mountains from the Cordilleras. Yes! You heard it right, 6 freakin' mountains! I still can't believe it! . Now I know why this place was called Mt. Purgatory, I might as well not share it so that everyone can experience that kind of feeling we felt that time. A feeling you'll surely don't want to miss. . Still in awe by the wonders of her beauty. This Mossy forest really is something. Something unexplainable. Honestly, it's mystically enchanting. . Thank you for making this trip possible. Kudos to @livesmart and to the awesome team from @trailadventours. This is definitely one for the books! #WorldTravellerGlobal: @corvaceous
Having lived in the Philippines all my life, I tend to ignore the beauty of my country. I have always wondered what kind of pleasure foreigners get when they recklessly risk their safety just to ride on top of these 4x4 jeeps on the rough and rocky terrains of Mt. Pinatubo. I tried it for myself during a recent trip to the mountains, and a different perspective in life is what I got. #ThatFirstFeeling of fresh air in my lungs, cool breeze on my face, and being alongside the Aetas who’ve lived here through many generations was exhilarating and unforgettable. As we sit atop the jeep, Renalyn, the daughter of the tribe’s chieftain and our guide, shared stories on how they lived simply in the mountains – food abundantly growing in the forests, fresh water from the streams, a makeshift roof above their heads, and a small wooden house they call home. Her happiness and passion for their culture is contagious. Her stories made me realize that one does not need much to be happy. People say that travel and experience are the best teachers in life. Sometimes it doesn't really teach you something new, but instead reminds you that life is good if you try to see it from a different perspective. We truly have a country, culture, history and a nation to be proud of. Indeed, #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines. Be a #WorldTravellerGlobal, and love the Philippines.
I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU . . Of course you can't take that away from me - to wish that I had met you sooner than I actually did. I am thinking of the times I lost because I didn't know you then. I could have been there when you needed someone to lean on. I could have seen all the times you smiled at little things. I could have accompanied you to places you travelled to all by yourself. I could have spent moments talking to you, watching you and falling in love with you more and more. But there must definitely be a reason why I met you just now. Perhaps you wouldn't have even looked at me then. Perhaps you wouldn't have even thought of spending time with me. Perhaps we wouldn't have worked out then no matter how hard we tried. I may not be a strong believer of divinity but I believe in fate or destiny. And I have a very strong feeling that mine has long been intertwined with yours. I have waited all my life for you. I was definitely made for loving you. xxx NORBY . . [[ I wrote this after climbing Mt. BATOLUSONG in Tanay, Rizal where we had to contain our excitement to witness a Sea of Clouds. #ThatFirstFeeling of realizing that you have moved on now and you think that you finally found the one destined for you. It doesn't actually matter how many seas of clouds you'll witness, how many mountains you can climb or how often the sun rises and sets. What matters most is that you appreciate people and the love that they give you. Nothing compares to that feeling. How much more when you feel that when you are travelling.]] #WorldTravellerGlobal . . . #the_PH #huntgram #liveauthentic #livefolk #passionpassport #lastsuspect #communityfirst #excellent_asia #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #wtnadventures #cn_traveltuesdays #iheartPinas #lazadaPH #woogoPH #visitPhilippinesAgain2016 #CebTravels #smilemag #moodygrams #thoughtcatalog #contiki #poetsofinstagram #vsco #vscoph #vscocam #FotografiaUnited #fuivan_20160608 #agameoftones
. 7 days of DIY adventure 4 cities ( tokyo / osaka / kyoto / nara ) 4 unlimited JR Passes 4 #WorldTravellerGlobal friends . It was my second time in Japan but it was the same #ThatFirstFeeling of excitement the first time I was there . We got lost. We got hungry... thank you FamilyMart! We ran so we don't miss the train or the closing time of a temple. We walked... a lot. We rode a bus. We took lots of pictures... from postcard shots to blogger poses even when it was raining! We got disappointed... expectation vs reality. We shopped and we even bought matching Stan Smiths. We prayed and wished. We made new friends. We had encounter with deers. Sakura. Authentic ramen. We survived a 3-degree weather without getting sick. We saw the shy Mt. Fuji. We witnessed a traditional Japanese wedding. The four of us got closer and we had lots of fun. . So what they say is true... It's indeed sweeter the second time around . #CurationNation #GrammerPH #GrammerWorld #RoamersWorld #ShuttersRepublic #VisualsDistrict
An unexpected ride from Mt. Arayat and come up by after lunch to take a tour with the famous Historical Place of Bataan which was Mt.Samat, our first long ride together might have a bad memories since we did slip on the road but instead of cancelling the trip we did not loose hope and Thank God that we did not gain any injury from that accident. It was all worth it to visit this place, it might be dangerous to climb the mountain for the first time. But it gives us an experience and drive to take each tour and explore our country. #ThatFirstFeeling #WorldTravellerGlobal #KaPrimerFirstFeeling #Mt.Samat
#ThatFirstFeeling when I tried to join a hike and successfully reached the summit was very fulfilling. The trail was not that easy for me. There were too many assaults. Even myself has a doubt if I can make it. There were times that I wanna give up. But with his and my friend's support, I gained courage and inspiration to continue. #ThatFirstFeeling of reaching the top and can finally saw and appreciate the beauty of God's creation is one of the best feeling I can ever had. Always remember, be courageous and keep moving forward. You'll see something wonderful is going to happen. #worldtravellerglobal #travelph #itsmorefuninthephilippines #mountaintraveldiaries #nature #friends #mtbatolusong #sierramadre
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." -Nelson Mandela I have a great fear of heights; neither do I fancy adventures. But what's life without a little risk? When a friend invites you for a diving experience, you'd probably think of fish, corals, and salt water. How about plane, clouds, and parachute? What...Sky diving? Probably not my thing. But, not everyone gets a chance to jump out of a plane. Scaarrry! With a sigh, I said yes! :) We travelled almost 10 hours to the beautiful island of Bantayan in Cebu. I always wanted to return to Bantayan since I have fond memories of this place when I had, so far, the best snorkeling experience here 7 years ago. Straight to Santa Fe Airport, a group of sky divers welcomed us with big smiles; that actually made me feel more at ease... the calm before the storm! There were four of us scheduled to dive that afternoon and what a thrill, I'll be the last to dive...GRRReat! Every turn takes around 30 to 40 minutes. And what's running through my mind while I see them landing one at a time? I hope they take good pictures in the air! Finally, at 4:30PM, it's my turn! The sky turned a little darker, but hey, I'm gon' have a "sunset dive"! Isn't that a bonus! Butterflies started to fly in my stomach while I ride the plane. I'm wearing my harness, my friends were cheering at the back, amd we're ready to take off. Every feet higher, the air becomes colder but the view becomes better. Islands and ocean at the left. Sun and clouds at the right...precious! At 10,000 feet, I got my signal that we're about to jump. I had a little thought before I stepped my feet out of the plane. A friend once told me, the moment you're most afraid to jump, is the best time for you to jump... so be it! In 1, 2, 3... #ThatFirstFeeling of flying as light as a bird, the clouds touching my face, and facing my greatest fear 10,000 feet high.... PRICELESS!!! After a few seconds, the parachute opened and I had the best 360 degree view of Bantayan Island while the sun bids goodbye. [cont] #WorldTravellerGlobal
When I First set foot in Cebu, sixteen years ago, we just had a day tour in the city. We went to tourist spots, historical sites, various temples and that's it. At the end of the day, we left the city and I never had a chance to come back not until early this month. I had an opportunity to go back and explore the island more, the northern part to be exact, last week. We went to conquer the sky and the sea of Bantayan. We went diving 3000 meters above the ground and went diving into their deep blue sea. ThatFirstFeeling of free fall at 200kph and seeing the bird's eye view of the island. ThatFirstFeeling of plunging into the water and witness the rich marine environment. The best way to celebrate summer. This was one of the best travel experiences I had and the weather was so good, milky way greeted us on a clear summer sky and I just had to write my name in the air.
It's been a year and a half since #ThatFirstFeeling of getting a traditional tattoo from the famous Whang-Od. Not only do I remember the pain, I also remember the many first feelings during that trip. The feeling of being more alive because it was my first time to organize a backpacking trip with friends. We went to Baguio-Bontoc-Buscalan-Tinglayan-Sagada in 5 days. It was also our first time to hitchhike (asking for a ride from a stranger); first time to go to a place we didn't plan to go to (stayed in a small town for a night); and first time to run as fast as we could to catch our ride back home (carrying our heavy luggages). Those are many first feelings in one trip. Next goal is to travel the world - see nature, taste new dishes and feel alive! #WorldTravellerGlobal #KaPrimerFirstFeeling
#ThatFirstFeeling of travelling outside your comfort zone. This picture was taken during my first ever out of country/first ever airplaine ride/first ever passport stamp trip. I almost cried while the plane was descending due to the pressure on my ears. And this guy here helped me calm down. Stepping on other country's soil were both exciting and scary for me. But as we landed, only an indescribable feeling remained! #ThatFirstFeeling Hi @adin234! I can't wait for our next adventure! :) #WorldTravellerGlobal #ThatFirstFeeling
#ThatFirstFeeling of seeing endless fields of flowers and being mesmerized by their beauty and being astounded when you realize the work that has been put in to create them. To travel and explore the world is one of the best things you can do for yourself, it not only lets you see the beauty of the world but also opens your mind to new and wonderful experiences! #TravelNowxWorldTraveller
Squad Goal Exploring the beauty of the Philippines is one helluva joyride, an adventure which always supercedes the previous one. Such was #Thatfirstfeeling of heading straight to the pier as soon as we clocked out from work just to make it in time for our three hour or so Cebu-Ormoc boat trip. As soon as the boat docked it was another two or so hour ride to Biliran, the jump off point of our Sambawan Island escapade. Despite the scorching heat of the sun, the exhaustion, being sleep deprived and a half filled stomach, another hour of traversing another body of water was never an issue. Everyone was overwhelmed with excitement as we inched towards our final destination. Pictures were taken and stories were shared along the way as we marvelled at the little islands we passed by. Travelling with your friends with the same out of this world wavelengths, sharing the fun and conquering another beauty are all joys of a #WorldTravellerGlobal.

#ThatFirstFeeling of spending your summer travelling with your love ones outside the country after years of waiting. This was taken during a summer before my clerkship starts at medical school. A gratifying feeling before i step foot at another great challenge of my life. I spent a month planning our route and what to do in korea just to have a satisfying adventure to fill the hungry soul. Can't wait for more adventures, especially our first ever trip outside the country @maximusprado. Sooon! #ThatFirstFeeling #worldtravellerglobal
#ThatFirstFeeling when you finally see your favorite skyscraper in person! Used to just see this in geography books so I was really overwhelmed with its beauty when I visited Kuala Lumpur. Went here twice just to see it both in the morning and at night! No regrets even if we had to walk more because it'a even more beautiful at night. Here's to ticking it off my bucketlist and I'm hoping to see Marina Bay Sands next! #WorldTravellerGlobal @worldtravellerglobal
#ThatFirstFeeling when you finally took your signature pose in the largest palace of South Korea. Annyeong Gyeongbokgung! Used to just see palaces like this in koreanovelas. And i was really in awe of this historic site, the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty built in 1935. A lot of first for my first out of the country trip. Well, we were lucky to have seen the changing of guards which is very impressive. Many people are dressed in Hanboks surrounding the traditional area too. The entrance fee was 3000 won but admission is free when you wear a hanbok. Definitely a great place to start your adventure in Seoul! #WorldTravellerGlobal #KaPrimerFirstFeeling
I can still remember that first feeling when I first met you, I fell in love with you and said I love you. That first feeling we went to the beach, went out of town and then went out of the country. This is the first time I saw snow - and it reminded me about how I felt when I first saw you. Whatever we do, wherever we are, that first feeling will never go away. #ThatFirstFeeling is home to me and home is whenever i'm with you. #WorldTravellerGlobal #WorldTravellerph
