Running on very little sleep after taking a late night flight out of Manila to Davao, we drove out of the city proper by 5am to take a quick hike up the newly-opened Sleeping Dinosaur trail. Immediately any form of tiredness was washed away stepping onto these trails, surrounded by vistas that prove how beautiful our motherland truly is.
I was having a conversation with my good friend recently (and also the person in this photo) @patrckmartin who has been in and out for more than almost 2 weeks now shooting videos for @airasiaph. I asked him if he was tired, moving from Bohol to Taipei and then now to Davao nonstop. He said he took Vitamin C everyday, but what really helps him is Passion. I was reminded then about why we do this. They say to find fullfilment in the things you do, do work that feels like play. Something that comes natural to you, that you don't need to force drawing out energy from within to go through it. That's how it feels when we're sent on an exploration trip to shoot photos and videos. Running around from one place to another can be physically tiring (a normal 5 day itinerary could be squeezed into 2 days), but we muster up all the energy within us because it all feels like play.
So here we are making the most out of our 2-day weekend, #ChasingWonders and doing what we love in Davao.
