Every traveler has a story to share and experience gained in every. In our travels, we have different perspective and story to the place we've visited. Yes, sharing a story about the place through our words is not enough to share our experience and but I believe that it would be much better through the help of our photographs.
Personally, I don't go out and explore without a camera on my bag. Whether I'm just walking at Roxas boulevard, attending a mass in Paco Park and even in Job Hunting, I bring my camera. In short, my camera is my travel buddy.
Why do I bring my camera every time? To capture the scene on where am I. I know that I'm not a good writer/blogger (so far), but photos I captured helps me to share and communicate my thoughts and experience to you.
So these are the stories with my travel buddies.

Meet Angela. I got it as a graduation gift in high-school from my mother. I had a lot of travels with this camera before it was broken last 2009(my mom still doesn't know that this camera is broken, i'm sure she'll be mad is she finds out). We've been to Gardenia Bakery in Laguna, Mystical and Calinawan Cave, Daranak Falls in Rizal, Intramuros, MV Doulos, Paradizoo and Gourmet Farm in Tagaytay, Tita Cory's Funeral and the most memorable of them all was our trekking at Taal Volcano.
During that time the memory stick was so expensive, so I'm stuck using the 256 mb memory card.
It's hard for me to accept that this camera is not functioning anymore. Because this is my 1st camera but the memories it was captured was so priceless.

I can't live without a camera. So, I earned money with a little bit of kickbacks from my parents , September of last year I bought this camera. During that time I really need to have one, to capture some of the last moments of my life as a student.
This one who is always in my bag most of the time. Unlike the DSC-T10, this camera supports the inexpensive SD card. So I can take a lot of Hi-Res photos and videos.
This camera was with me when I watched the International Kite boarding Competition in Bagasbas Beach, Daet, Camarines Norte and hiking at some mountains in Paracale.

And lastly, meet Camilla (Nikon D-5000)
Another graduation gift from my mom.
This camera was with me when I conquer Calaguas Island and that was a challenge for this camera. Before he trip to Calaguas Island I'm worried because there are no electricity on the island I have doubt if the battery life of this camera makes it up to the end of the trip. Luckily, this camera didn't failed me. I took a lot of photos and some videos and still It has 2 bars left on the battery. One of the travelers problem was the battery life of their camera but my D5000
survived for 2 days.
So they are my 3 travel buddies and their stories. It doesn't matter what camera you owned, it's in the memories/adventures you experienced and captured with them.
Go outside and explore, don't forget your camera :)
