Did anyone ever get sad or unhappy for losing photographs once in awhile. I do. I have never appreciated Picasa apps before, but now I am thankful because I found photos that I have been searching for a long time already. Even though there where times I am afraid my photos will be out on the net without my permission, I still gamble. I remember what my mom felt like when she was still alive after a flash flood damage our house in Laguna in 2001. Her box full of old momentos was kept at the bottom drawer of her cabinet. It was all damage and eventually destroyed. That was her most valuable possession. In our time, keeping digital copies is easier especially for those using apps to beautify or to flex it. For me it is convenient to save it in my personal drive so that wherever I go, I can open it. If I change computer or laptop there will be no problem. But I am not a fan of any apps demanding personal info and access to my account so I stick to the old method. However old fashioned it may be google knows everything anyway. My secret life which is tucked in my photo journal is more precious than anything I owned. I think I was born in a wrong era. My passions for everything not so contemporary including my hobbies and interest drives my own friends crazy. Honestly, I don’t mind. 🙂
I’d like to share some of the places where I have been. I am not your typical travel blogger who pays a lot of attention about the accomodation, food, services etc. I go to places because I WANT TO BE THERE. As you can see Spain and France is my favorite destination. There are still so many places in Spain and France where I’d really like to go and visit like the Omaha beach in Normandy where history unfolds during the WWII. My penchant for everything in history, medieval times and places protected and acknowledge by Unesco Heritage is extra ordinary. My dream destination is Jerusalem and Norway. Sadly it doesn’t appeal much to my travel companion. But I still have time 🙂 who knows 🙂 Meanwhile I realized that I have been ignoring my own backyard. I been blessed to live in two countries with opposing characters. Next time, I will tell you more why it will be hard for me If I have to choose where to stay for good.
