About my travels, meeting people, adventures, food and culture
Who would have thought that after 25 years my dream to go to Europe would come true? At first I thought I must be dreaming and feeling pessimistic about the trip. We all know that getting a Schengen visa is very hard to acquire especially if you are a Filipino. Not because there is a discrimination but the reputation that some of the Filipinos did that after obtaining a visa and never returned to their homeland in hoping to find a greener pasture in the land of Latin Christendom. Anyhow, after submitting all the requirements needed in a getting a visa, I was swamped with tons of work on my desk. Projects lining up but the fear of the visa keeps on popping on my head.
I was in the office when my mom called up in the office and told me that she received my passport sent by courier. We were both excited and asked her to open fast the pouch and she was so excited to announced that a visa was granted.. Whooooaaaa!!! I cannot believe it!! But I was thankful of course for having the opportunity to finally be in Europe!
I was granted a one-month visit to any part of European Union so I booked fast to different airlines, making itineraries while checking the money that I have just to be sure that I would not have any financial problem on and after the trip.
Because I only have 1 month to travel around Europe, and I have a lot of places to visit, I visited only few places and here are the select pictures I captured during my visit. First stop is Munich, Germany.
