The Transcendental Tourist

Jesus of Art:

October 14th, 2021

Jerusalem, Israel October 5, 2019 He was oppressed and afflicted,    yet he did not open his mouth;he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,    so he did not open his mouth. Isaiah 53:7 Our walk through the cobbled Via Dolorosa concluded at the massive and spectacularly ornate Church of the […]


The Bridges of Yangshuo County:

September 30th, 2021

Yangshuo County, Guilin, China September 4, 2017 Indeed, I crossed the bridge when I got there. Yulong River, a tiny tributary of the iconic Li River in Yangshuo, flowed through ancient villages that had mostly remained as they were during the Qing and Ming Dynasties, including their stone bridges: Fuli, Yulong, and Xiangui. The last […]


Blessed Mourning:

September 25th, 2021

Tabgha, Israel October 7, 2019 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. Matthew 5:1-2 The first time the world heard of the tenets of what would become Christianity was on the gentle slopes of Mount of Beatitudes. […]


Impression of Yangshuo:

September 22nd, 2021

Yangshuo County, Guilin, China September 5, 2017 Harmony of sky, mountain, river, and me. I thus captioned my selfie on a riverside boulevard in Yangshuo. The view of Li River from that turn at a corner had already been composed: the languid river cutting through jutting peaks, a fishing boat anchored midstream, and fluffy clouds […]


Aere Perennius:

September 14th, 2021

Arles / Vers-Pont-du-Gard / Nîmes / Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France June 13 – 14, 2019 The monuments of the Roman Empire had taken on the timelessness of the Eternal City. It took a family trip down Roman roads in the South of France for me to discover the fallen empire’s tangible and indelible heritage. Ruins of infrastructure […]


To Vlog and Not to Blog:

September 7th, 2021

Manila, the Philippines July 13, 2021 Vlogging is a totally different animal. Many of the blogging contemporaries of TTT (my handle’s nickname) have adapted to the times and moved on to YouTube territory. Well-meaning friends have advised me to go the same road. But vlogging requires a unique skill set that I simply do not […]


Partial Eclipse of the Heart:

September 2nd, 2021

Kaohsiung, Taiwan December 26, 2019 Turn around we did. A curious sight in the middle of the sidewalk deserved our double take: a young man seated on a chair, looking through a portable telescope under an opened umbrella. He called us over along with a lady walking by and handed out sun filters. We became […]


Confidently Lost @ Gueliz:

August 26th, 2021

Marrakesh (Marrakech), Morocco June 27, 2019 We set out in the morning without so much as an itinerary. Any last-ditch planning on our penultimate day in Marrakech was ditched. I surrendered the day to Ki’s steps that led us on his flight of fancy, which did not involve any mode of transportation. We would be […]


Roussillon la Rouge:

July 30th, 2021

Roussillon, Vaucluse, France June 15, 2019 There was truth in tourist advertising that touted Roussillon as one of the most beautiful villages of France. From a distance, the hilltop town bloomed like a rose in the verdant vineyards of Luberon under the deep blue sky of the Mediterranean. What set it apart from all the […]


Coasting Along the Coastline of Churches:

July 23rd, 2021

Argao / Dalaguete / Oslob / Santander, Cebu, the Philippines March 24 – 26, 2018 I was smitten by the rustic charm of Boljoon. Back in 2011, Ki and I were on a road trip tracing the southern coast of Cebu. We hopped off the bus in the rain and ran for shelter in the […]


The Promise:

June 27th, 2021

Wadi Musa and Madaba, Jordan October 8 – 9, 2019 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev and the whole […]


What’s in a Name – The Prequel:

June 27th, 2021

Legazpi City, the Philippines November 23 and 25, 2015 My unusual name – both given (Aniano) and family (Poliquit) – had always been a matter of curiosity. In a stroke of serendipity, I found the origin of my first name in Cairo where St. Anianus was regarded as Egypt’s first Christian convert. Four years prior, […]


Contemplating Sky and Sea:

May 29th, 2021

Casablanca, Morocco June 18, 2019 Jutting out of the skyline of the densely packed ancienne medina, the world’s second tallest minaret beckoned us. Ki and I walked to the direction of the newly-invigorated Boulevard de la Corniche along the Atlantic coast. We followed an elderly man with a walking cane crossing the scenic highway toward […]


Armageddon Ground Zero:

May 21st, 2021

Megiddo, Israel October 6, 2019 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. Revelation 16:16 The drone of a distant fighter jet reverberated throughout Jezreel Valley as I stood at Armageddon, the name derived from Har Megiddo, Hebrew for Mount Megiddo, an actual place located in a kibbutz called Tel […]


Living Paintings:

May 7th, 2021

Amsterdam, the Netherlands June 7, 2019 Maids and mothers working at home, nature in action or inaction, food and flowers on the table. Whatever the scene, tableaux vivants and still life paintings were the photographs of 17th-century Netherlands. Dutch Realism rendered these static and silent paintings as “living pictures” evoking movement and texture, sound and […]
