A Travelers Message

Let me start by saying that I don't really know or have even met the guy on the photo but this I tell you he has reminded me of something really important. 

I remember seeing my news feed with him posting photos of him checking in at the airport excited about going on his trip. After that there was silence, while at the office I checked my phone and noticed a photo from his wall it looked creepy and I told my self "parang sa patay naman yan". It was a photo where his photo is on a table and there are flowers around it but it looked as if it was just incidental that his photo was there so I dismissed the thought. The following day, sad news broke out to the travel community, our friend and travel buddy has left us. I was left dumb founded, all along what I was seeing grieving friends already tagging him on their posts. 

I was like in denial for a bit, I was thinking hey that couldn't be! I just saw him posted something the other day! But to my dismay, it is true he has left us. 

It woke me up from being reluctant again on doing the things that I want. His message is simple, Do the things that you can do now, life is short and you don't know when it will end.

Thank you Amer and bon voyage.
