DREAM BIG AND LIVE YOUR DREAMS.

“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if  you’ll die today.” ~James Dean

It is better to have dreams than to start the day, or year, not knowing where you stand. Dreams and ambitions are your foundation, or personal goals and desires in life. Everyone has a dream but not everyone knows how to turn that dream into reality.

Don’t let anyone tell you what you are, or what you can do or can’t. You know yourself better than anyone else. Defy gravity if you can but also remember to keep your feet on the ground. Set a goal and plan ahead, imagine yourself in that dream and how it would be like to live the life you’ve always wanted. Use it as a motivation. It is all about convincing yourself that you can achieve your dreams.

Manila In A Nutshell

INTRODUCTION

Manila, also known as the Pearl of the Orient, is located in Southern Luzon, the largest of the more than 7,000 islands that make up the nation known as the Philippines. The city’s name, originally Maynilad, is derived from that of the nilad plant, a flowering shrub adapted to marshy conditions, which once grew profusely along the banks of the river; the name was shortened first to Maynila and then to its present form. The city flanks Manila Bay, and is divided into northern and southern sections by the Pasig River. Manila serves not only as the country’s capitol, but also as its financial, publishing, and business center. The citizens of the city speak Tagalog, but most are also fluent in English, which is the language of instruction in the public schools.

I wanted to do something special for the Man of My Dreams for our anniversary but thought I’d get him something that money can’t buy. One day, I’ve stumbled upon a page and saw all the beautiful pictures that the OP has collected. For me, traveling is not only a way to get away—it’s a way to learn and experience life through different cultures and pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone. Sadly, he doesn’t travel much. I wanted to give him the world in tiny pieces and show him where my love for him has reached. Okay, that was too cheesy. On a serious note, it is a dream to travel with him someday and by showing him all these beautiful places, I hope to force encourage him to explore the world with me.
