Work has been crazy lately and I barely had time to think about hiking or traveling (ooh, now that I've said it, I suddenly miss being in the mountains!). I was too busy trying to catch up with what I needed to learn because there's tons of new processes, a new work tool, reports, conference calls and the like, you know - adult stuff! hahaha! I'm a kid at heart so sometimes I wish things were just simple - like - you smile and a million dollars fall on your lap! Hahaha! Don't we all wish that way?
So anyway, since I have no plans go hiking - just yet. Let me share with you an event where I will be participating and hope I will see you there. Basically, there will be an art installation in Cubao Expo organized by Dispatch Magazine and my shoes will be part of it. Along with my shoes are the footwear of other fellow travelers. (Thanks to Upper Viceo of Dispatch & Offbeat Wanders for the excellent opportunity to be with people I look up to!)
