Sightseeing the Global wonders of man and nature... Sightseeing the World as we know it...
I wish I have all the time and money to travel and visit them all! 

As of March 2016, Philippine Passport holders have a free visa / visa-on-arrival privilege on 61 countries. Additional 8 countries (total of 69) if working as a professional in Middle East (GCC) states and another on-condition visa privilege on some countries if holder of visa on Schengen, US or other OECD members. I have been to 58 out of 195 official countries (29.74%) across 3 continents around the world as of February 2016, in which 3 of them were Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) status while the remaining for backpacking/leisure only. My travel addictiveness just started only in 2010. On the other hand, my home country Philippines, visiting it's 61 out of 81 official provinces (75.31%) as of March 2016.
