QotD: To Do

What’s on your “do before I die” list?
Submitted by Caroline.

A lot of things, I guess. But the one I want to write about today is…

Tour the Philippines (my country) on foot.

Well, not really on foot on foot. Of course, I’ll ride buses and jeepneys and horses and carabaos… But definitely not my car (if I have one by then).

I’ve only been to a teeny tiny part of my country, and I feel bad about it. I mean, it’s MY country, I brag about it to foreigners, but I’ve barely seen its essence. I have yet to experience its grand festivals, see the lush flora and fauna, and swim in its pristine waters. I haven’t seen the diverse culture with my own eyes: I’ve only heard about them in textbooks, and from other people’s stories.

I wanna go backpacking!!! I wanna walk the dusty dirt roads, trek the mountain trails and get down and dirty with nature. I want to walk through Filipino cities that aren’t Manila. And even parts of Manila that I haven’t been to.

God, there are a gazillion things to do here and I’ve done almost zilch.

Well, that’s going to change… before I die. ^_____________^
