So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalms 90:12
I'm Regin Reyno, a Filipino traveler, minimalist, and photographer based in Beijing. I prefer experiences over material things.
I have 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 via a 1967 American SUV, backpacked in Southeast Asia, trekked mountains in the Philippines, taught Health in an international school in Bangkok, watched the sunrise over Angkor Wat, volunteered in an orphanage in Cambodia, camped on the Great Wall of China, stayed with nomads in the steppes of Mongolia, spent 5 days in North Korea, ate insects, watched Formula 1 cars pass by, bungy jumped, paramotored, rappelled, got sick on the road, and swam with whalesharks and sardines.
I am chasing UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Wonders of the World.
This blog was made to record precious memories of my travels and share my experiences with you. I also included travel tips to help you in your travel. Some of my works were already published in travel magazines such as Expat Travel and Lifestyle, Southeast Asia Backpacker, and Bangkok Trader.
Aside from travel and photography, my passion includes choral singing, tennis, missionary works, volunteering, and Formula 1.
I was named one of the 50 Inspiring Travel Bloggers of 2013 by Southeast Asia Backpacker magazine; and is also a Registered Nurse and a Certificate of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) holder.
For writing, photography, ministry projects, volunteering, advertising opportunities, and travel tips, don't hesitate to contact me.
