Last night, I went and had dinner with friends in the city. This group of friends are friends who I normally travel with, trekking the world from Venice to Santorini. We were thinking of what our ideal destination would be next year and we threw names of a couple of countries in like Australia or Japan. Two of them left for Beijing, China today and I am so jealous. If only I had the vacation time to accommodate it, I would be on the plane with them right about now. But with an impending surgery and time allocated for rest time, I couldn’t.
I saw this video posted on the Facebook wall of Ms. Reyna Elena and thought – hey, we’ve been looking far and wide for the next country to visit and yet we have ignored one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Philippines.
In the last few years, there has been a revitalization of the Tourism industry in the Philippines and the DOT (Department of Tourism – Philippines) have been hard at work to promote the country that has more than four different colors of sand in beaches spread across the country.
Who knows? The Philippines may just be our next choice destination.
And by the way, last night – we also established “Seven in the City” (parody to Sex in the City) – a group of seven individuals who will try different restaurants around Philadelphia. I guess I am volunteering to blog about our experience. Wait for my posts about our experiences in and around Philadelphia, concentrated on different cuisine available to us in the City of Brotherly love…
In the meantime, take a look at this VIRAL VIDEO:
