"A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking." - Earl Wilson

"A study published in the Applied Research in Quality of Life journal, showed that the highest spike in happiness came during the planning stage of a vacation as employees enjoyed the sense of anticipation.."

Most of this were in Central Europe and Israel with Philippines, my hometown, as my last airport to depart.

Michelangelo was 33 years old when he started his work on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. King David reigned in Jerusalem for 33 years. Jesus Christ is believed 33 years old when He died. Many Christians consider the “perfect age” to be 33. Undeniably, being in 33 years old is also the greatest age of my life. As for me, I am 33 years old (just this 2013) when I visited countries I couldn't believe I just did. From my birthday last January in China, where I brought with me my family as our 1st trip abroad. In March I visited Armenia on its post-winter season, then in May for my 1st major solo climb in Mt. Kinabalu of Malaysia and sizzling summer escapade in the Land of the Rising Sun Japan. Followed by 2 surprise consecutive month visit in UAE. I have visited Philippines for four times. Finally and the most unbelievable of all, visiting the 10 countries of Central Europe and afterwards conquering the most strictest Immigration Security in the World, Israel and Palestine.

Anyways, I divided this wonderful journey into different set of posts to be more specific on its content;
