"You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you,
as you are to them."
- Desmond Tutu
I really enjoy traveling and I do it in different ways like solo, with friends or with an organized tours. However, most recently, I did it with family -- my siblings
I have one big sister who lives in the US and one big brother who lives in HongKong. I am the youngest (bunso) in the family and the only one left in the Philippines. We all share the same common denominator which is --- traveling.
Moreover, we have also seen attractions from state of Maine and New Hampshire.
Traveling with them brought back happy memories of my childhood. There were no pretensions. I was allowed to be myself – stupid and childish- I am the bunso and I can act that way. I can be cranky when I’m tired and instantly forgiven in 5-10 minutes. LOL .
They totally understand my mood swings, humor, and weird cravings for ice cream.
It felt really good showing the most authentic version of myself.
"Our siblings. They resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing,
and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them
our whole lives long."
