Philippines Homecoming

a trip by = Nelson & Stephen
From: May 12th 2011
Until: June 6th 2011

Greetings Family and Friends!

Stelson is back and this time we are on our way to the Philippines and Southeast Asia for a Family Holiday and Homecoming!

During the last year and half since our Oceania Adventure
( see blog : ) , both Stephen and I have been able to travel frequently but were unable to find time to blog. If you haven't seen our last blog, check it out and our hope is to share with all of you some great pictures, stories and videos from the Philippines!

The Inspiration of this Philippines Homecoming was introduced last Christmas when my Lola (grandmother) decided to return to Manila for the winter. So my brother Brian accompanied her this past January. I told my Lola I would come this May to pick her up in time for the summer and for her planned hip surgery this upcoming July. As I planned the trip, Stephen was fortunate to get the time off and I was able to convince both my parents, brother, sister and two cousins to come along, thus making this a Philippine Homecoming for all of us.

It has been over 10 years since I have been back to the Philippines and I know things have changed. For Stephen this will be his first trip to our home country and I am excited for him to learn about history and culture.

Our plan is to leave on May 12, 2011 and travel nearly 4 weeks to the Philippines. Our first stop is outside Manila, where our family resides and where we will all be staying. For now, we have plans to go to Mindoro, an island where our family's business is located and we hope to show you all our fish farm, salt farm and factories. Weather depending, we also hope to make stops on the islands of Boracay, Cebu and the country of Laos.

Check out our May 23 blog when we will be attending Maroon 5 Live in Manila and meeting the band and my favorite singer Adam Levine!

We hope you enjoy reading our travelblog and keep up to date with our travels !
