[Negros Oriental] ~ Monkeys, Rides and Leisure Walk in Santa Catalina

It was one of the farther and lesser known towns but a good call to go here for an encounter with free, sneaky monkeys, unique slides and calming walks – 03.17.22

This started off as an itch to tick off something in some sort of bucket list but I ended up doing this for the fourth time because while everything else seems the same (jump, scream, land, repeat) – I keep on wanting to re-conquer the fear, re-hear the whoosh as the plane door opens and re-live the feeling of disorientation during the first few seconds of freefall.

Reviving my Love for Trips and Stories

Have been in a quite long hiatus because of ‘busyness’ with then-work, distraction with the quick shares enabled by social media platforms, and of course, the pandemic that has hit us all hard.

My recent doses of somewhere, however, has inspired me to not just go places but to honor and remember them through words and snaps.

And staying true to my intent in creating this space from the very beginning, hopefully my stories inspire you to find your own.
