Travel: Intramuros (Within the Walls)

 

I have always wanted to meet Carlos Celdran, a man who is trying to change the way you look at Manila – one step at a time. At some way, shape, or form, he has inspired me to create my website as I try to realize one of my ultimate dreams in the near future — To live a life worth living and help others do the same. Then write about it and capture its moments through photographs — and help others also write about their lives and mentor them on how to capture their life’s milestones and moments in snapshots too. (Can’t wait to launch my site. Can I launch it before end of Q1? Let’s see. Rawr.)

 

 

December 20, 2009 at 2:30 PM. I finally got to meet Carlos. I signed up, texted, emailed, texted, called, texted, and finally got to join one of his ‘Walk This Way’ tours around Intramuros.

It was an extremely fun and informative tour. I highly recommend that Filipinos and foreigners take a Celdran trip. I had so much fun…so much fun that I’d be joining Carlos again this January on his tour to Corregidor. Good times.
