Blessings. It’s easy to forget them in the midst of the chaos and even harder to remember them in times of despair. We often forget how much power they hold and how much inspiration they can bring. I live for memories likes these. Memories that bring light and invigorate the soul. It is in remembering all that we have that helps us conquer fears when in doubt, find happiness in sorrow, and fly when we are down. Thank you Fiji for your unabashed beauty, breathtaking culture, and undeniable love you brought to my heart.

Sydney was vibrant and full of life! We explored the bustling city, unspoilt beaches, beautiful Blue Mountains, and sparkling Darling Harbour. Congratulans Roicelene and Danwin on your amazing wedding! A BIG thank you to the rest of my Australian family for taking care of us!

Going to Cuba was like going back in time. Classic cars cruised across the streets, buildings blazed with colonial and baroque architecture, and technology was far and few between. People clamored and played in the streets day and night and music filled the alleyways everywhere we went. It was simply magical.
Thank you South Africa for the amazing adventure! The wonderful people we met along the way perfectly complemented your beautiful terracotta sunsets, vibrant rolling hills, and rugged blue coastlines. It was a wild, untamed, and endless adventure. Until we meet again. (p.s. My drone died halfway through the trip — yikes! I tried to stitch together as much as I could!)
Last week we took a journey to Zion and it was simply breathtaking. The massive sandstone cliffs that soared into the blue sky captured wonders in nature rarely seen. The rocky precipices and teetering canyons not only dwarfed us literally, but figuratively by its sheer beauty. Here a few glimpses of our journey there.
Two weeks ago, my grandmother turned 100 years old and my cousins and I all flew back to the Philippines to celebrate. She’s still sharp as a tack and carries a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. While she rested, we took some time to explore Palawan and the rich islands surrounding it. Her spirit and legacy lives in all of us. #purex100
Rodney likes to film on his free time and make videos of his travels for his family and friends. When he’s not recording, he surfs digital clouds at Multibrain, developing software and overseeing company operations. He likes to relax with a good scotch, but occasionally you’ll find him running marathons, competing in triathlons, snowboarding, unicycling, playing the piano, or nurturing his overbearing love for his German Shepherd, Helix. Rodney is an FAA licensed Unmanned Aircraft Pilot and is currently working to get his private pilot license. Rodney graduated from USC with degrees nothing related to anything above, but bleeds cardinal and gold nonetheless.
