I am taking a journey in a few days. My parents have invited me to come and photograph their trip to the Philippines. My parents are missionaries and take several trips a year to the million island nation.
I went with them once, back in 1995. Of course, lots have changed since then. This time, I will not be part of the mission team but solely be there to spend time with my parents and take as many photos as I can. Also, I am almost 20 years older. I was 22 the last time I visited. Now I am 40. I was still in undergrad. Now I am a professional, albeit in between jobs. I believe different now. (Not much different but nonetheless different.) I had hair back then.
This will be the longest I have been apart from Todd since we’ve been together. That’s almost 14 years. I’ll miss him and I do wish he was able to come with me.
I will have access to internet while I am there so I will continue to post photos on my blog. However, while I am traveling, and throughout the day, I will be posting snaps from my iPhone on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. So please follow me, if you haven’t already.

Have a fantastic time!!! We will look forward to the pics!
Wow that’s impressive! My sister-in-law is from there…in Ozamis? I think that’s how you spell it. They only got running water a few years ago. Good luck and looking forward to the photos!
Nice. Not sure where that is. I’ll ask my parents.
Great tnx 🙂
It will be a very special trip, Seth. Going back to a place that left its mark on you after twenty years will be emotional. Leaving someone you love behind will be hard, but you will bring back many memories to share. And to us, many lovely photos, I’m sure. Bon voyage.
Merci. J’espaire lire ton livre sur l’avion. Hope that makes sense. On my phone and don’t have a French dictionary.
welcome to the Philippines ;D
Wow! Have a great time! Look forward to your pictures!
Enjoy and I’m looking forward to the photos. And God bless your parents!
I’d love to hear you views on missions and missionaries some time.
Terry, it’s very complex. 😊 I might share sometime. Probably in a private conversation.
How exciting and what a fantastic opportunity! Have fun!
Thanks. I’m looking forward to it.
Buon viaggio Seth! Have a really fantastic time!!! Can’t wait to see your pictures.
Is that Tagalog? Buon viaggio?
Safe travels! Hope you have a good time and I’m looking forward to the pictures!
Thanks Tasha. Pre travel jitters tonight.
Have a wonderful time . You and Todd will have so much to talk about when you return. Congratulations on your 14years together.
Thank you. Yes I’m surprised he’s put up with me this long.
Have a fun and safe trip!
Will be looking forward to your posts.
Thanks. Sort of nervous right. Pre travel jitters.
Travelling is like that sometimes.
Great shame that Todd can’t go too but have the most wonderful time. Do look forward to your photographs.
Thanks. There are a lot of stay dogs there. I’ll want to take them all home.
Look forward to the pics! Poor Todd! ;oP
Thanks. He’ll have some much needed Seth rest.
Oh that sounds like fun! Can’t wait to see the pictures once you return,,, 😀
Hopefully, I’ll be posting each day while I’m there.
Great story. I went with my mom back to the PI in 2011 and it was a great journey to be on with her. What an amazing country with wonderful people. I’m sure your return trip will be nothing short of interesting and memorable.
have a great time – just hit the ‘insta’ button 🙂
Hi! Hope you’re enjoying your stay here in the Philippines.
Safe travels, Seth!
