"For every traveler who has any taste of his own, the only useful guidebook will be the one which he himself has written." -- Aldous Huxley
I found this quote in 2008 while browsing through travel books in a small shop in Rome. Now, while it seemed to contradict the very nature of a travel book, it made sense. It told me to seek advice about traveling, but in the end, it can (and will) only be my adventure.
Travel is one of my greatest passions and it's something I've done for as long as I can remember. Even as a little boy in the Philippine provinces I can clearly see myself tagging along with a family member (in what seems to be the hundreds that I have) to take short trips to beaches or perhaps to visit (you guessed it) more family members.
That didn't change when I moved to the United States (Syracuse, New York to be exact) at the exciting age of seven. Not only did this country provide new opportunities (as many may know) but it also gave me more destinations to feed the hungry traveler inside me. With my family of four we scaled up and down the the east coast visiting historical American landmarks and trekking through various East Coast cities. Now, (after another move back when I was 13) I've become a Chicago(land) native and we (as a family) have begun another era of exploration, this time the Midwest and West Coast.
As it stands today (at the age of 22) I can say that I've visited various states and countries (both in Europe and Asia). But I want to see more. As part of my first post, I had hoped to introduce myself to a community who is just as enthusiastic about travel as I am. With that said (until I can post about my upcoming travels) I invite you to look at the photos I've taken on my travels which can be found at http://nigetv.multiply.com. I invite you to follow my steps from location to location. I invite you to see the world thru my lens.
