2012: My Year in Travel


I never expected that I could do so much, visit so many places, and learn so much through new experiences in a span of a year. If  I could eat, sleep, breathe…travel. I would. It’s something that I am very passionate about, besides the fulfillment of making little dendrites come to life in the small but highly capable and amazing brains of my beloved preschool children.

And last 2012, I have been truly blessed. In a nutshell, here are my life’s blessings for the past year, and I will always be grateful for all the travel opportunities that I have been given.
