|Captain Ron's Selfie Moment in Paris|
It is the month of February and there is no better way to start this off but a feature from one of the Philippines' Top Bloggers with a shot taken in a romantic city of Paris. Ron Cruz or "the Captain" is one-half of the famed traveling duo who writes for Flip 'n Travels. He has an insatiable passion for traveling fueled by his childhood dream to see Paris. His dreams of reaching Paris finally came true last year but was it what he was expecting? Let the Captain speak...
"Heart pumping, palms sweating and restraining the excitement of reaching the glorious realization of a life-long dream. And there she is–Standing, moored regally and everything around her disappeared into oblivion... So I thought: Let's selfie this muthapacker before I start frothing in the mouth out of excitement.
Is it the best place I've been to? NO. Plastic containers, hardened bubble gums, grimes, cigarette butts and spats of all sorts of bodily fluids strewn all over the pavements, alley corners, main road, parks and even in front of historic monuments. It's a glorified Quiapo with pedestrians in Prada, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent.
Is it my favorite destination? YES. Because I spent my whole life dreaming of being there and the mere fact that I was standing in front of that tower is tantamount to say "If I made it here, I can go anywhere." After all, what make a destination memorable are not the landscapes and world renowned structures but the effort and amount of passion you put into the journey.
This is Paris and no matter how dirty it is or how rude the people are or how imperfect the city may be, it is the representation of my traveling life: Flawed, filthy and kicks ass when posted online. So I selfied my heart out for all I care!"
