I can never be thankful enough for all the travel opportunities that I have experienced. I am still bewildered at this point whenever I recount the places and people I have encountered in my years at sea. Looking back now, I have to say that serendipity has a sweet way of creeping up in your life although I also have to give a shout-out to the power of strong prayers. Heck, I prayed for my previous job in a mantric kind of way! The power of attraction is strong for someone who truly believes.
As an Overseas Filipino Worker or OFW, I worked onboard ships for a US cruise lines company. Ten years abroad was a great chapter in my life. I learned so many things not just in the professional aspect but life in general.
