2012: The Year That Was

2012 has been a great year for me. It was a year of spontaneous travels, numerous food trips and finally took the road that I've really wanted since I was a kid. Truth be told, it was my most extensive travel year yet. I have traveled to as far as Lingayen, Baler, Clark, Baguio down to the most underrated province, Siquijor. Oh, I shouldn't forget my Kota Kinabalu trip!

There were times that I have doubted myself if I am doing the right decisions. Well, even though that I haven't achieved some of my goals, at least I have learned so many valuable lessons not just in traveling  but life in general.

This shouldn't be long. Now presenting, the obligatory year-end post: 2012: The Year That Was

Whaddup, homeslice?

And I made a promise that I should finish all of my backlogs after Christmas since I should start reviewing for the departure and arrival charts. Wow, talking about studying on a holiday break! Bummer. Well, it's not that I'm complaining... It's just, I always look forward for this much-awaited break. I got giddy when the plane finally landed at Davao! Nevertheless, I appreciated the true spirit of Christmas more than last year. I appreciated the presence of my family and relatives, celebrating noche buena together.

So yeah, what's up? I know that I haven't had any serious travels since August. But I'm going to share a bit of something about my new journey.

Pasko Fiesta: Celebrating Christmas in Davao

Ho ho ho! 'Tis the season to be jolly Fa la la la, la la la la! 

And all I thought I won't come home for the first time due to the busy schedule of our training. But thank God, we were granted to have a one and a half week break - a much-awaited break to be more precise. And as my scheduled flight to Davao drew nearer, I get excited and giddy, knowing that I'd spend the holiday seasons with my family, friends and to a place where I truly belong.

The Vision Of The Seas gives its name to what is arguably the most sophisticated and elegant class of ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet. As ever with ships of its calibre there is a huge range of activity options for guests to choice from throughout the day and on into the evening. A key element of which is focussed on the food side of the equation, with a banquet of cuisines always on offer on the Vision. You can do very little indeed or you can try your hand at every last activity but the real draw of the whole thing remains the views and on the Vision you really are able to see some truly stunning regions of the world.
