First visit July 1989
I was almost graduating from college and my mother decided to buy me a ticket to the Philippines as a graduation gift. A very nice surprise. My mother gave me the spirit to travel. She travelled a lot when she was younger and she still has the wanderlust today. After 16 years of being disconnected, I came back. Everything was different yet familiar. I continue to visit since my first visit in 1989. The following are a few of the impressions I captured during my first visit.
