Starry Night Sky in The Philippines

More than just its 7107 islands, starry night sky in the Philippines, and the hundreds of mountains and reefs. The Philippines is much more than a tourist destination, and much more than a country. For me, the Philippines is a feeling; a feeling of being sound even if you may be in an uncharted island in the middle of nowhere. A feeling of being warm despite being high above a cold mountain top. A feeling of being secured even if you are in the middle of an isolated forest. A feeling of being safe amidst the rubbing of an active volcano. A feeling of being comfortable even if you are surrounded by locals and people who you do not share the same language with. For me the Philippines is a family; a home, because in reality, home is not a place but a feeling.
