Excuse the brevity of my first post. I was actually writing from the gate at the airport. It was a spur of the moment decision. I figured I've been procrastinated long enough and finally used up all lame excuses. No better time to start blogging on GIO than when something life-changing is about to happen, right?

My agent (I work freelance) got this great assignment for a travel magazine and I was sent to Panau Island. ...Yes, exactly: I have no idea where I am! Never heard of it, but let me tell you, it is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.  Reminds me a lot of French Polynesia.

It's late. I've travelled 23 hours. Need sleep. Here are some snap shots taken from the plane.
