    It was around this time last year when my colleagues and I set foot in Germany. One of a few shots during our first stop in one of Germany's cities closest to Filipinos' heart -- Heidelberg. Yes, this is where our national hero, Jose Rizal, completed his eye specialization.

    Made it to Explore Front Page. Thanks again everyone for your constant visits and wonderful comments!

      The photo is superb, but it's what you said about travel ....that hits home with me. In all my traveling I couldn't put a finger on what I'd feel when going somewhere new....and you had the words for it. Exactly. Thank you!
