The Year That Was: 2016 in Love and Love of Travel

It has been a few weeks since 2017 kicked in and I still haven’t truly grasped the series that unfolded last year. The year that was 2016. 2016 started with the idea that after I see parts of my country (the Philippines) in the first few months and have touched base with Southeast Asia in the 2nd quarter, I will be heading off somewhere far by autumn to study and culturally immerse for an extend period of time… perhaps, for the next 2 years.
