DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WE GO

 
Friends have given up asking “Where are you going?” every time my backpack goes behind me. My reply remains the same, “Do I look like a person with a plan?”

Often, I just pick an entry point and go. That is the most important thing, isn’t it? I may do most things wrong, but if I have any remote sense of a shining quality, if at all, it is that I allow my feet to take me places. Sounds adventurous, I know, but do not be fooled. The main driving force is laziness. 

This summer, I knew I wanted to see whale sharks. From there, down the rabbit hole we go. More often than not, I get away with it okay. 

On this afternoon, I find an old town square near Tanaw-an. Classic Cebu. Ruins, old church, a museum, the coast.   
    
 I feel good. Bouncing back from my whale shark riding accident. The world is not in flames. 

Now it is all a matter of moving forward.

  1. Love this picture:

    It’s just a tree and stuff, I guess; but it’s like a cup cake for me, setting off so many childhood memories – in this case, holidays taken on Adriatic island. Lovely post. Thank you.

  2. Fantastic capture and well backpacking without destination, hope I able to that for my life as I always busy mapping the route and organized the hotel to stay. Too tedious and hard work and sometime I wish I able to do as i wish and see the world with only my backpack and camera.
    Have a wonderful day, my friend.

    1. hello, lovely to hear from you again! yes, i am too lazy and disorganized to attend to all the travel necessities really, so mostly i just wing it. there are downsides and i am sure there are better ways to travel, but this is the best my lazy ass can do for now!

  3. I envy your life – I’d like to do that someday just get up, throw on my backpack and go see places I’ve never been to. This place looks like a city where time stood still. I bet it has a lot of history to it… well, enjoy your stay there – looking forward to more amazing pictures and adventures you have there….
