So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalms 90:12
I'm Regin, a Filipino traveler, minimalist, and photographer based in Beijing.
I prefer experiences over material things.
That's why I traveled across western Europe, rode a bus from east coast to west coast of the United States of America, journeyed from Isabela, Luzon to South Cotabato, Mindanao, Philippines via a 1967 American SUV, backpacked in Southeast Asia, trekked mountains in the Philippines, watched the sunrise over Angkor Wat, volunteered in orphanages in Cambodia and China, camped on the Great Wall of China, stayed with nomads in the steppes of Mongolia, spent 5 days in North Korea, watched Formula 1 cars pass by, bungy jumped, paramotored, rappelled, and swam with whalesharks and sardines.
I am chasing UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Wonders of the World.
Some of my works were already published in travel magazines such as Expat Travel and Lifestyle, Southeast Asia Backpacker, and Bangkok Trader.
I was also named one of the 50 Inspiring Travel Bloggers of 2013 by Southeast Asia Backpacker magazine; and is also a Registered Nurse and a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) holder.
Aside from travel and photography, my passion include choral singing, tennis, volunteering, teaching, and Formula 1.
