Family Trip 2001: CALIFORNIA9:21 PM
In June 2001, I had the best summer vacation. And I bet it could've been happier if I was older that time. Wala pa din digicams noon, that's why it's hard to get a real good picture. Some are dark or blurry. We visited my grandparents in San Diego when my Lola was still alive. My Lolo still lives there until now with one of my aunts. It's not that easy to have a US visa and we we're lucky enough to be issued with a 10years tourist visa. Yey! Sadly my brothers and I only managed to go there once. My parents tried their luck on employment twice and unfortunately, it just wasn't for them. I can't believe it's been more than a decade since I stepped into LA airport. I don't know when I'll be there again. I hope soon! =)
Sharing my California vacation experience. Heavy picture post!*
Waiting for our flight. Excited!

Treasure every place you're able to travel to. Take lots of pictures, eat different crazy foods, try first time scary and wild experiences. Not everyone are lucky enough to have those opportunities like yours. Have a great week everyone!
