    I've been to 217 UNESCO World Heritage sites so far.

    I'm lucky I went to Syria pre-war and saw all of their sites intact.

    Mabuti ka pa at napuntahan mo yung Syria. Pupunta rin sana ako noon bago magkagulo kaso mas inuna ko ang Petra, naubusan na tuloy ako ng time para tumuloy pa sa Syria.

    True, one of the smartest decision I ever did. It's almost impossible to get a visa to Syria nowadays.
