My Travel Wishlist

Since December has already begun a few days back, I'm going to join the bandwagon and create my own travel wishlist!

I won't be wishing simple things like "world peace" or "good vibes all over planet Earth" though because haler Hitler! If I am going to make a wish, it has to be big!

Ika nga, Dream Big, Kapamilya!

One. Every traveler needs this basic stuff - MONEY. From purchasing tickets to and from different destinations to booking accommodations at a cozy hotel, money is really an important thing. So to my ninangs and ninongs who constantly read my blog (chos), you know the drill. AND YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM ME THIS YEAR, I'M TELLING YA! Or better yet, you just have to click my ads. Make it a daily habit. Jazzzkeeding!

Two. Round trip tickets to Batanes. Because round trip tickets to Basco, Batanes (from Manila) costs more than round trip tickets to Bangkok. Yes, it's THAT expensive. But there's more to see in Batanes - houses made of rocks, the Ivatans and the beautiful landscapes.

Three. Tripod. For obvious reasons, taking long exposure shots will be easier and my photos will have better quality. Also, taking self-portraits from my travels won't be that hard!

Four. An authentic RayBan Aviator Shades. I have bought a LOT of RayFakers and WayFakers... and ALL of them didn't last for more than three months! Ugh. Sad part is, I can't yet afford the authentic RayBan Aviator Shades (costs around Php 8,000). But yeah, I hope that the fat man in red would give me this. I've been nice since the first day of 2011! 0:)

Five. iPad 2 3G. I travel a lot and I need to get the latest updates from Facebook and Twitter, emails and news coming from both local and international media. It wouldn't be that hard to communicate with my family and friends whenever I'm out of town (or out of the country). Too bad I didn't win an iPad 2 3G during Globe's Christmas Party! I ain't that lucky when it comes to raffle draws!


But yeah, I still have to be thankful for the unexpected blessings that I have received this year. Firstly, my Canon EOS 1000D along with the Sigma f/2.8 105mm Macro lens, Canon Zoom Lens (f/4 55-250mm), Speedlite 430EX II external flash and Canon telephoto lens L-series (f/5.4 70-200mm) which were ALL generously given by my uncle! Woohoo!

Also this travel blog of mine got nominated in the Philippine Blog Awards Mindanao!

And to my parents for their never-ending support! :)

How about you? What are your travel-related wishes this Christmas?
