Where Are You From and Places YOU Want to Visit

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

I've been blogging for four years, and got my 700th follower yesterday! So funny that my 700th follower has the same name as me! Shout out to Jillian of Jillian's Books.  

Anyway, this post is random and out-of-nowhere. I am curious as to where you all are from! What country, what state. You don't have to say which city of course (privacy reasons and all) but I am curious as to where this blog's readers live or have lived!

I was born in California, but moved to the Philippines when I was a few weeks old. I grew up there, and when I was fifteen, my family and I moved back to the Bay Area in San Francisco, California. I love my hometown, and am proud of my Filipino heritage. I also love the city of San Francisco; it is an interesting and fun place full of so many different cultures and eclectic people and activities! I have to say my favorite place would be Washington State though; I fell in love with that state (especially the area in and outside of Seattle). It's similar to San Francisco, but more low key and more nature-y. 

As far as places I want to visit, here are the top of my realistic must-visit places.
1. New York (I've been there, but I want to go back!) 
2. London 
3. France (Paris and the country side) - my top travel destination for sure!
4. Go back to the Philippines for a visit

Tell me about where you are from and where you live, and the top places you would like to visit someday!

  7. Great post, Jillian! How have we never run into eachother at book signings or anything?? I am just a little east of you, but most of the book signings I go to are in or around SF. I've been here in this area my whole life, except the few years when Hubby and I were stationed in Texas.
    My top dream destinations are the Philippines to see the villages where my grandfathers grew up, London, Scotland and Japan.

  8. Wow a shout out! :) I can't believe you also come from the Philippines because I do too! Not only do we have the same name but also the same place of heritage (coincidence??). I didn't even know you came from the Philippines haha! San Francisco is nice too! I went there when I was 6! It was really cold and breezy!!
