Travel: Favorite Place

Dear Me,

I'm feeling the itch travel.

It has been a long time since the bug has struck me. I was wondering where to go. I have been so out of touch, out of my element,

I miss climbing mountains. I miss the beach.

Sometimes, I dislike the scorching effect of the sun. You see, when dear God decided to shower fairness amongst us people, I was probably hidden somewhere else. While growing up, I felt so insecure about my dark skin. I studied in a Chinese school where fair skin abound. Anyway, that was high school.

College was quite good for me. I grew confident and contented. I didn't care what other people would say about me and my skin.

Because of the I-don't-care-attitude I have come to adopt, I was not scared to engage in climbing mountains. In fact, I welcomed the warmth of the sun in my already dark skin while trekking.

On the other hand, I don't consider myself a beach gal. Not because of the typical effect of the sun but more of the reality that I could not swim.

But then, I realized that I could still enjoy the beach. Frolicking in the water, reading a good book under the shade of a tree, napping in the sand, etc.

Anyway, I am longing to wander around with my family and friends.

I am hoping you can tell me your favorite place and why me and my family should check it out, too.

Me, too. I don't care about the color of my skin as long as I am enjoying what I am doing. Ang sinasabi ko na lang sa kanila, "Kasi marami akong perang pambeach!" Hahaha!

@Nicely, I agree. Hehehe. Oh, I hope maka-gimmick tayo sa beach together. :)

@Eds, never been to those beautiful destinations. Maybe when hubby comes back for a vacay. :)
