Hope weather will be GREAT!

Batanes here we come!

Travelling time of the year with the family. We contemplated on going to Thailand but on the last minute we decided Batanes instead.

Batanes is the Scottlandia of the Philippines.

We are excited but felt bad since this will be the first time my brother and sis-in-law will not be around.  We will surely miss their absence.

Von voyage my brother!

Heres my brother Rommel & his wife Len (together with their consultant Alvin on center) ready to go inside the airport this morning. They will study and will take their chances in London. We already missed these two crazy-jolly persons, we are used to be with them wherever we eat, shop & travel in the world. We are actually quite hesitant now in pursuing our Batanes trip without them. It seems hard to accept the reality and we will always remember our good times together. We never expected that this will happen sooner than we thought.

Well we know that they will survive together, whatever challenges they may encounter.

“Uy namiss namin kayo agad, kung nababasa nyo to”

Next year we will visit you there bro & sis ! Lets photograph the whole London & the rest of Europe 😉
