it’s official. In 8 hours I will be arriving back into Los Angeles and jumping into the arms of my beloved. My bags are packed, And on paper it appears as though I’ll slip through time by leaving Manila at 8 am, taking an 18 hour flight and arriving in LA at 9 am on the same date. ITS TIME ZONE MAGIC!
Europe was such a whirlwind, I barely had time to write my entries here. but it’s ok, i’ll publish my pictures when I’m feelin more willing. maybe even while waiting in the airport. so what if the blog’s out of order?! IM COMIN HOME! I’ve missed you California!!!! :D YAY
A quick 2 day trip to the city of ruins, and new revolution. The fresh feta was to DIE for, so amazing. Traditionally feta and some other kind of cheese is baked in a clay pot and served with pita bread as an appetizer.. gluten free is definitely going on hold for Europe! The mediterranian was so blue and still as glass. My Dad and I hit things off with a taxi driver named Nikolas aka “Nik the Greek” and he drove us around to all of the sights and was quite an excellent tour guide. Needless to say, it was fantastic. He took us to this cute little restaurant that had the true greek yogurt, so creamy and sweet with the cherries on top. I think my favorite part of Athens was the food. Oh my love for Mediterranean food… It was a whirlwind.. hope to return again for a longer stay. :)
On the way now to Athens, Greece. Hanging out in the Business Lounge on a layover for the next flight. I have never felt more Goddess like ever before. The sounds of birds chirping may be coming from the speakers, but it feels as though I’m in a serene paradise.
couldn’t have put this better myself: “Both Athena & her uncle Poseidon wanted to be patron deity of Athens. Athena gave a practical gift to the city. She caused an olive tree to spring up near the Acropolis, thus providing people with a plant that could grow in the tough Greek terrain & provide them with food, a source of oil, & things valuable for trade. Poseidon sought to outdo her by striking the ground with his trident & causing a spring of water to gush forth. He is the ocean personified, so the water was salty. Athena’s gift to the city was considered to be more useful, so she became the city’s patron deity.”
Oh Goddess Athena, may you bless me with your Wisdom and Courage on this auspicious journey into Greece. :) The whirlwind begins as of now… gonna be an especially epic 2 weeks ahead : Greece, Italy, Switzerland, here I come! XD
This is Patti Chua, an amazing 13 year old girl who has the soul and voice of a woman. I have become close with her mom and uncle and went to her performing at this bar in Makati the other night! WHAT A SHINING STAR!! So much support to her and her family!! :D GO PATTI!!!
one word : MAGICAL. oh to be reunited with the earth, the water, the fire, the wind. what an incredible trip with Joanna and Glenn!! I am so grateful for such incredible friends here in the Philippines, I never would have made it to these places without them! When going to Pila Falls, we were approached by AL, who told us he’d be our guide. He told us He was Eagle Al, and that Pila Falls was his place. We got a couple pictures of him right before he disappeared behind the rock in front of the falls…. the one to the right. He didnt climb anywhere, he just.. vanished. On our hike back from the falls an Eagle started circling overhead.. I know that AL was the guardian spirit of the springs and that he guided us and blessed our journey :) what an incredible trip. The Northern Provinces— simply MAGICAL.
