Wanderlust

Have you ever desired something so much that you’ll do whatever it takes to get it? Well, my ‘something’ is not tangible, so, it’s not that easy to get.

Adventure. That’s what I long for.

It’s not easy ’cause you need lots of money to travel. I know, I know. There are cheap ways to travel, like ‘working’ abroad (WWOOF and Au Pair). But, I know I’m not the type of person who’ll go for that now. It is a great idea, I may try it in the near future.

This is why I also created this blog. To somehow share or see other people’s adventures through mail.  But, I do know another way on how you could have your own adventures and see other places for free or at least cheap. It’s…

booksREADING, ladies and gents!

My latest hoard of vintage books. And there’s a 90 year old book hiding in there!

You can explore all sorts of worlds, meet different kinds of people and definitely have an adventure of a lifetime through reading. It’s a great way to enhance your vocabulary as well. I have to admit though as to why I bought loads of vintage books. I was planning to use some of them for my mail art. Blasphemous, I know!

Screen Shot 2013-07-05 at 8.39.43 PMThis is the maximum damage I could probably do to a book. It breaks my heart that I did this to a 60 year old book.

Lesson learned! Take care of your books, old or new. So, your future kids or grandchildren can have their adventures with them too!

I’m still ALIVE!

I’m sorry for being on a hiatus for half a year. Had a bit of life crisis. Anyway, I only took a break from blogging but I didn’t stop spreading my postal love. And here’s an evidence for you guys!

IMG_2702Sending postcards from United Arab Emirates!

Yes, I was overseas for a few weeks. The company I work for sent me to Dubai to meet with our business partners. Had to mix business and pleasure a bit, ’cause I also met up with my friends and relatives who live there. I saw four Emirates in total while I was there. Thanks to all the people that I met, activities I tried (iFly, flyboarding, skiing, and sand boarding), places that I saw, and foods that I tasted, I had a blast in UAE.

I’m glad that I brought a DSLR camera to document my visit in the Middle East. The culture, the people… so much beauty. I can’t even put to words how much awe I felt during my stay in there. I just hope my photos will bring justice on how beautiful it is.

For those in the Philippines who are planning to visit United Arab Emirates, Cebu Pacific now has flights going to Dubai. And guess what? There’s an ongoing seat sale for as low as P999!
