You’re probably wondering what the blog title is about. This is about me, Janis Narvas, and my reason for traveling. I’ve always wanted to see more of the Philippines to discover how beautiful its people are. More than the sights and sounds of the places, I want to explore the rich cultures of the different provinces and share lives, and not be a mere tourist.

This blog is my attempt at collecting my thoughts on the various places in the Philippines I’ve been to. This will not be a conventional travel blog in that there won’t be any tips on how to get to a place or how to get the best deals in town because 1) I don’t intend to travel that much, and 2) I don’t intend to spend as much for this hobby.

Through this blog, I want to share my discoveries on the road, as well as the realizations that I’ve made about myself and my country as I explored various travel destinations.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
