Me, sitting in the middle of the gallery, awed by it all.
The Louvre. Paris, France. June 2000.


I have been amazed, fascinated, and fallen deeply in love with so many places. I will be sharing my travels here, as well as tips and links, places to see, or perhaps, people to call.

My name is Aileen. I am a true-blue Cebuana but uprooted myself from Cebu 15 years ago to work for the United Nations. And then, I took a leap of faith and pursued what I have always been passionate about -- Photography. Last year, I took another leap and started a shoe business, a fulfillment of a childhood dream.

When I am not traveling or diving, I spend time on my business or photograph things and people.

Happy travels!

  4. Thank you, Miguel! You are very kind. I hope the numbers of the hotels in posted in Lucban are still working. :D I think you'd enjoy Pahiyas!

On Travel

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
{ Mark Twain }
