I used to read a lot of Filipino novels when I was young. There was this writer whom I liked very much for his detailed description of places his characters went to. Whenever I read his novels, it seemed like I was traveling with his heroes and heroines, too. His settings were not extraordinary special but he made it sound like they were. Because of him, I dreamt of exploring the Philippines. I haven’t yet done that, but in the near future I will take time and be a tourist in my native land. Afterall, it’s more fun in the Philippines!
