From the archive: Mitake San

During my last few weeks in Japan, I visited Mitake San alone. I always wanted to climb up a mountain in Japan out of curiosity. It was a 2 hour journey from my home in Yokohama to Ome in Tokyo.

I don't have a photo of the peak. Not that I forgot, it was just that it didn't feel like I had to take a photo of the place. 

Philippine Independence Day

Celebrated Independence Day over Benham Rise, or now Philippines Rise. 

 

We boarded the ship from Casiguran, Aurora. We explored the area regarding the fishing industry in the region and what Benham Rise is for them. 

A Week in Guam

Last February, I went to visit my aunt who lives in Guam. It was my first 'US' trip. Not sure if Guam qualifies as US trip since its a Pacific Island territory.  But still, it always feels good to be out of my home country.
