Last night I was able to meet up with a good friend (Hi Clare!). And as always, it was good. Coffee/Hot Chocolate and a hearty breakfast at the odd-hour of 9pm at Bo’s Katipunan. A familiar, homey area to set the tone of our life-updates.
There are some friendships that are formed over years of classes together, over shared experiences with teachers, uniforms and the same canteen food everyday from elementary to high school and sometimes even college. Then there are some friendships forged through a bond of shared vision and passion. I’d like to think that’s what Clare and I have. Sure, we’ve had classes together and have gone to field trips together – but looking back, it was through coffee chats on cultural heritage, development and nationalism that we really started becoming friends.
Unfortunately, I was the bad kid that never really became involved with the Heritage Conservation Society. On the other hand though, I’d like to think I have redeemed myself by falling head over heals in love with Youth Trip Philippines (which deserves its own blog entry really).
In the meantime, because I love my family and friends, I’d like to share the things that make me happy – YTRIP is among these happy thoughts/realities. Check out their event on Thursday, 22 January!
Hope to see you guys at ROX on Thursday! 🙂
Hear experienced travelers talk about discovery, survival, and abandoning plans. Plus, with the looming financial crisis, we’ll share some ideas on how to create meaningful trips on the cheap.
