2012 was a year of traveling with love. Why? Because most of my trips were with my girlfriend-turned-fiance.
Our first local trip together was in Matabungkay, Batangas last April. But our first flight together was travelling to Boracay in June. Although it was not my first time in Boracay, it was hers. This made it extra special so that she would discover the beauty of the island with me.

On our first day, we stayed at Villa De Oro which was conveniently located facing the beach of the island’s station 2. We then moved to Pearl of the Pacific on the next day. The stay at Villa De Oro was ok, but we appreciated the peace and tranquility of Pearl of the Pacific more.
Our first local trip was immediately followed by our first international trip. This was my birthday gift to her. I brought her to Singapore, a countrywhich I consider closest to my heart outside the Philippines.

It was also here where I proposed my intentions to marry her. Luckily, she accepted it last July 23, 2012. It was her birthday as well. <3
