To be very honest, we weren’t sure if living overseas would be for us either, but after immersing ourselves into everything the Philippines has to offer, we realized very quickly that the international life is one that we do well.
It’s no surprise then that our time abroad has been filled with so many fun things — we have traveled to places we didn’t think we ever would, we tried out food we didn’t know anything about and we even pushed ourselves into learning and trying hobbies & activities that we weren’t accustomed to (thanks Amir for making me get scuba certified, haha).
And while we were busy soaking up all of the fun, in the blink of an eye, two years happened to fly by. This opportunity? You guys, I just can’t put it into words. It has been amazing. And I am shocked that our time in Manila has come to an end. Alas, such is life, huh?
To our friends here: Thank you. I can’t say those words enough. Thank you for being in our lives, for getting to know us, for standing by us through the tough times while our family wasn’t able to be here with us physically, for becoming our extended family, for loving us and for celebrating all the wonderful things that have happened over the years. I cannot wait to see you all again! Until then — long live FaceTime 😉
Manila, I’ll surely miss you. But as they say, it’s not goodbye…it’s see you again later.
