No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” – Lin Yutang
I’ve been very sensitive and emotional lately and whenever I’m feeling like this, I always feel the need to get away. Travel. I went home to the Philippines after traveling from January to May this year and because I’m in my comfort zone, life has been very slow. I was living in hotels to hostels to serviced apartments for a few months when I was traveling so when I went back home, I was adjusting again to the slow, laid back lifestyle that I have in my city.
Don’t get me wrong, I am happy of where I am, but I am having one of those days where you just need a little boost. If I could travel anywhere in the world right now, I would go to the beach to soak in some sun (which will probably toast me) or in a cottage in the snowy mountains in Europe.
I’ve been dreaming of a White Christmas and I really want to visit Strahov Library as a gift to myself for my birthday. For Christmas, I would love to spend it in a snowy mountain because seriously, I could use some cold weather. For some reason, the weather is still pretty warm, especially in the afternoon, here in the Philippines. December is my favorite month because not only because it’s my birthday month but because the weather is usually cool at this time. I’m hoping and praying really hard that I will get my visa soon so I can start planning my trip. 🙂
The weather is pretty cool at night here though so that’s keeping me sane. But for now, I’m going to dream of a beautiful snowy day until the day I will literally wake up in a snowy cabin on a cold December day.
