This is how I spent my Thanksgiving in 2017: poolside under the palm trees in Manila, Philippines – a slightly difference experience of spending Thanksgiving in my hometown in Chicago.

No cold weather. No jackets. No warm apple cider. No family members. AND NO TURKEY!

But it’s all good – I’m thankful I’m back in the Philippines and having been on the road and meeting other travelers the past 2.5 months.

Also, it’s been exactly 3 weeks since I left for the Philippines – I can’t believe how time flew! I’ve got some blog posts to catch up on as I’ve traveled to a few places already!

For those who celebrate, I hope you guys had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with your love ones!

Mick 🙂
