I have always fancied
poets who
chronicle junkets with
word play and metaphors
Say, Cambodia as prepossessing
or a Nordic skyline- a tapestry of hues.

But a sketch of places, un-moving picture shows in watercolor
Depicted by an artist
on an immaculate-white of paper
is poetry all the same
adjectives represented by lines
metaphors, by colors.

Hi Rob,

A few weeks ago, i have seen this in facebook, and i was like man, i would definitely would like to have one.. not only because of the sketches.. but im very much interested in backpacking.. i have done quite a few here in California.. i love to see the world through backpacking... I feel closer to God.. it just amazing..

Thank you for artists like you who used their own hands in creating a guide on how to be a backpacker in a very humble way.. Galing..

--Micah Jomay Artis

Hi Robert!

Count me in for the raffle~

I saw copies of your book in Northface-Cebu in December but had to stop myself from getting one lest I swim from Mindanao to Bohol. Now, if luck feels groovy with me, with a signed copy coming from you, WHOA! that would be loverly! loverly!

I lurrrrve the illustrations!

Cindy Trinidad said...

I would love to have a signed copy of your book :)

rizza said...

Sounds like a great book, it rarely occurs to Asians to really go around and see places that are nearer and more economical if you ask me, great prize to win if ever hope it gets in the hands of more people have a great day keep the faith and live by grace God bless you

antonio said...

hi sir robert!

i remember the day i saw your sketches on your facebook account.. and asked you your route when you did your backpacking in southeast asia + china.. well, i was inspired to do my own trip! i did manila-bangkok-chiang mai-luang prabang-vang vieng-vientiene-hanoi+halong bay-kunming-dali-lijiang-hong kong-manila.. and it was amazing! kahit mag-isa lang ako.. i did met a lot of backpackers along the way, learn a lot from them, learn a lot from the places i've been, learn more about my self & appreciate my country more! right now, i'm planning to have a backpacking trip in the Philippines by cluster like manila-davao-bukidnon-cagayan de oro-camiguin-bohol-cebu-manila

i hope you can start your 2nd book about traveling in the Philippines on a shoestring budget! i hope Philippine can be ready for backpackers asap so they can include us to the southeast asian backpacking route = good for the economy! :)

all the best idol!

boytropolis said...

I would love to own this book. :)

Guillermo Ramos said...

Hi Robert, Free book? Am I cynical or what? If I stopped being cynical, will you give me a free copy of your book. It's a question of faith overcoming mistrust. I admire you for having time to backpack, walk around, sketch, look at the birds and smell the flowers. I have to do that sometime, before it's too late. Keep up the Peter Pan image, you seem getting younger every time I see you on TV.

Kala Sukib-Reyes said...

Kuya Robert!!!! Your work never fails to impress me and so many others, ang galing-galing! So proud of you! I'll get a copy when we go back home. Kung kelan, hindi ko pa alam hehehe. I miss working with you, with Probe. See you around!

devi said...

hi, robert :

sniff sniff.....i need that book, i want that book, i EVERYTHING that book.

anywho, even if i dont get the giveaway, would like to congratulate you for that very unique idea. and hope that you keep doing stuff like that.

sniff sniff....

evolutionarypinay said...

"to buy" is one thing;
"to be given" is another (this is what i call "pure grace")

i'd love to be given a signed copy of your book, Robert! :) hope i'll be chosen..it would be a little but an adventure-dream come true :)

thanks and keep on walkin'! :)

embagual said...

Hello Kuya Robert,

I'm Eman from Dynamic Teens and I am very fascinated by what you are doing, sketching, travelling being adventurous. I wasn't given the talent to draw but I have the sense to appreciate it. The only adventure I have is with my fellow DTs when we reach out to unschooled children in slums and dumpsites and streets. I would like to win a book of yours so I can inspire my Kariton Klasrum students who are gifted in sketching and drawing. Especially Cris who's a former scavenger and now is fond of sketching, we bought him a sketchpad for Christmas 2008. I hope I have a good reason to win a book. God loves you for sharing your talents and resources to others.

sumthinblue said...

wow, I'd love to have a copy!

can I link your blog? :) looking forward to reading more of your adventures

Rev Cruz said...

This is great! I really enjoy travelogues especially sletchbooks like these (Craig Thompson's Carnet comes to mind). I would love to have one of yours...

kiTci said...

I try to capture the beauty of this planet through my photographs. You immortalize the earth's wonders through your sketches. Two ways but I guess the same purpose -- to share what our eyes have seen and what our hearts will forever remember.

From one traveler to another... I wish you more adventures Mr. Alejandro :D

lodrose said...

Can you send me a copy here in Dubai? Kahit ebook or scanned copy lang? Please!

I'd love to try backpacking on some parts of the UAE.

prettychelle said...

HI Kuya Robert!!! I am a great fan of yours and especially my adopted ate loves you so much...
I am based here in Singapore and I can relate to some of your stories... This is a great place to stay in a whole new world from the Phils but we are just a blink away from home... So, to anyone to who wants to work abroad but wanted to stay just near from home come work here...
Anyway, if I be chosen to get your book I want keep it to myself I'll give to my ate... so pretty please choose me! choose me!!!
Thanks so much....
But if I not be chosen I know it someone who really deserves it...
God bless!!!

nica said...

Marnie Dolera said...

Oh, wow! I would love to get a signed copy of your book. :)

erica yu-bonifacio said...

Francis said...

Hey Robert, backpacking has never been my strongest suit being a person who loves the luxury of a nice hotel. But hey if you give me a free copy of the book, I might suddenly decide to take up this hobby! Looking forward to getting a copy. I'm sure I'd love to take it with me on my backpack!

Cheers!

Francis

robina said...

it looks wonderful! you'll have to visit us here in south florida as a Visiting Artist/Author for CCDF! just let us know when you want to venture this way, and we'll line up a book signing tour...

Lui said...

sir robert,

matagal ko nang pinapangarap na makita ang ganda (at kahit di magandang bahagi/aspeto) ng bansa gamit ang backpack (kahit wala ako). at ngayong gagradweyt na ko, nilagay ko na talaga sa mga goal ko 'to.

sana po maalalayan ako ng libro at ng art mo.:)

CORNEL said...

Robert as you know I tell kids about God's love using the yoyo. Wouldn't it be a nice addition to the talks that I do to have a signed book from Kuya Robert so I can tell them about lands far away and make them dream more? I'll be delighted to tell kids more stories about our neighbor countries and how they can also go and experience more about what you tell in your book. I could also swap a signed yoyo if you like! ha ha ha

alas said...

magandang araw, kuya robert!!!

sana isa ako sa mabigyan mo ng book mo... gusto ko talaga makita mga drawings mo... plzzzz...

ung mga drawings mo diba sketch un ng mga napuntahan mo na lugar... azteeg!!! pahinge po ng kopya...

ito po eadd ko.
artist_alas22@yahoo.com

sana bigyan mo ko!!!

salamat po!!!

mabuhay!!!

A Voice in the Wilderness said...

What can I say, Robert. LOVE your illustrations. Inggit to death. Does the book contain your insightful kwentos as well? Regardless, to have a book of your drawings would be a treasure! I'm a fan. Do you need my mailing address? :-) Bob C, Vancouver

Nemcy said...

As always, i'm always at awe with your presence and your works sir Robert. Ang galing! I hope I'd get a copy to be inspired and get have my confidence in illustrating again and finding my style. And pretty much, your book reminds me of Graig Thompson. He did a graphic novel of his travels.. he draws/sketches them more than writes about it. Ang galing n'yo! Just can't remember the title of that graphic novel I really have a bad memory of names and titles :(

Hope I'll be lucky to have a copy of your book and meet you again (and ma-starstruck ulit!) Ü

Thanks and God bless you always Ü

my_yellow_shirt said...

Dear Mr. Robert,
I too would like a copy of your book. I remember reading and watching the Accidental Tourist, and for somebody who is tied to a chair and the files that pile up in front of one's face more than twelve hours a day, talking to every body who has a complaint and hearing the same whish whish of people moving away so fast, to read about a place and see the place in one's mind to get there through words and pictures, to have a respite from this city and its worries.... would be a veritable treasure for the world weary.

Thank you,

even if I don't win, I'd be happy to know its out there. That place where words and pictures and experience is there somewhere.

mojacko said...

i wanna have one!

i've been planning to go backpaking and experience it the way you have! :D

Anonymous said...

Hello Kuya Robert! This is Karlo, one of your fb friends. hehe

I have read about this on your wall, so here I am, expressing my desire to win a copy. haha I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!! LET ME WIN A SIGNED COPY OF YOUR WORK KUYA ROBERT!!!!!!(desperately asking. lols) It would be a great gift especially to a struggling nurse like me. hehe I think it's a unique and an interesting idea to relay your travel adventures in sketches aside from photos and texts. =)

I would like to believe that I'm a nurse with a heart of a traveler (hehe), so I'm sure your book would be an added inspiration for me to see more interesting places and experience more travel adventures in my lifetime. It would be a great guide and I guess it would provide me with great peview of a backpacker's life. One thing that I would really love to try out.

I have experienced staying in a hostel during my solitary adventure in HK, and I can't help but smile whenever I remember it. Imagine staying in a place for 4 days where no one speaks English! hehe Just thankful that I survived! hehe

THANK YOU in advance kuya Robert! (kidding! haha!) I really would love to have a copy. =)

Jackb said...

hi sir,

once again ibinulalas nyo naman ang pagiging mailkhain nyo. one thing i can say you always amaze people is because you know how beautiful the unappreciated is and what craft really is for art sake.
kakaiba kaya ang mag gala nang may tight budget saka one of a kind na place for stay.
i am one of the aspiring ones here who wished to have my book published. sana later.

but as of now, i would love to have your book. ill keep it in line with my collections of Bob Ong books, Inquirer Young Blood, Ricky Lee, and Lualhati Bautista.

hiope i can have one copy. thanks.

oh, heres my contact: sagesagjejhj@yahoo.com,

have a nice day.

kuya robert! ako rn gs2 ko sana magkaroon ng copy nun na may sign nyu..

sana... i will pray.. :)

Angie Paras said...

Yay! Love freebies! Specially if it's about travel. But seriously...am curious, are you like mo who'd rather eat instant noodles during a trip (instead of eating at fancy restaurants) and save the money instead for more sightseeing/adventures? Hehe...my hubby thinks it's insane, though.

Pastor Noel said...

Robert,

A signed copy that would be side by side with other mountaineering/climbing/backpacking books would surely brighten my library!

Praying a copy would find itself there sometime soon!

Hi! Our family will really appreciate it if you will grant us a copy of your masterpiece. My father was terribly a few years back and your Mom was the one who helped him with his medications even if she doesn't know us personally. We were able to thank her through your sister when we met her during one of the Ligaya ng Panginoon's gathering. Our family have been your avid fans even during your probe team days. You and your family have been very generous of what you have. God bless you more! AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM!!!

pril said...

I attended your backpacking seminar at ROX but I was not able to buy your book, financial crisis maybe?? Hehehe.. Anyway I was too hesitant to approach you and browse your private sketch pad. Until now I still regret it. I was always amazed on how you kept your drawings seemed so simple yet so admirable. I also sketch and I love backpacking trips. After the talk, I felt that I was just exploring a bit of land I was standing on. I was quite contented on watching discovery channel or nat geo, suntok sa buwan lang naman kung makarating ako sa Antartica diba? 6 paychecks I have received, I set aside a part of my money. Sabi niyo nga, “Hindi kelangan ng sobrang laking pera para makapag-backpacking sa ibang bansa! Nagawa namin at magagawa niyo rin!”. Malay natin sa susunod ako na ang may sketchbook at magpa-dreads ng buhok. ^_^

Salamat sa inspirasyon ninyo! Mahusay!

Fero McPigletron said...

*fingers crossed. It's a 55/1 chance but who knows when 1 might get lucky*
I've always thought of backpacking as a romantic/daring dream to accomplish. But I keep thinking it's too expensive, tiring, dangerous... plus the language barrier, the bathroom facilities, getting lost... I hope to be proven otherwise :)

Seeing the world through the eyes of a Filipino backpacker will definitely be a great experience to share to my heritage and American students (taking Tagalog language classes) here at Northern Illinois University. The art, the adventures and the magic of the world, smashingly captivated in this handy travel magazine are wonderful achievements of the heart and the mind. This book can be a perfect guide to wandering souls who get lost in this dog-eat-dog society.

hello Kuya Robert :)

I used to watch Probe way way back because I'm waiting for your segment. I watch because I'm waiting for you to draw anything from your experience. I love the lighthouses episode and the pawikans. I said to myself, one day I'll do the same. And now, I'm doing it. You're my inspiration of having a journal/sketchbook on my backpack everytime I travel and eventually became a "Biyahe" exhibit in Chockiss and in Bliss in Baguio. I'm so excited about your book and what's inside it. I'm sure every page is a delight. Can't wait.

Maria Agnes de la Cruz said...

I just want to share this story for the world to get to know you more, Mr. Alejandro =). Majority of my working life is spent working in TV productions, never a big fan of celebrities (I know the real them) and maybe because I can see auras. I easily recognize celebrities with the sincerest smiles and a big hearts. One day in Eat Bulaga (where I worked before), while my colleagues were busy with the biggest names in showbusiness, I was busy admiring the art you were doin with our hosts' signatures. You even never hesitated to make one for me, a nobody in a crowd of celebrities lining up to get one of your "art".
That art is proudly displayed in my parents' home along with my paintings =)
You are one of fewest people in the industry with a good soul.
I was humbled by how you treat people equally. Thank you.

As always, i'm always at awe with your presence and your works sir Robert. Ang galing! I hope I'd get a copy to be inspired and get have my confidence in illustrating again and finding my style. And pretty much, your book reminds me of Graig Thompson. He did a graphic novel of his travels.. he draws/sketches them more than writes about it. Ang galing n'yo! Just can't remember the title of that graphic novel I really have a bad memory of names and titles :(

Hope I'll be lucky to have a copy of your book and meet you again (and ma-starstruck ulit!) Ü

Thanks and God bless you always Ü

Great sketches, love the concept, love the blog name. I've been a traveling nomadic artist, living on the road and painting the many landscapes, & seascapes of Australia. One day I plan to make some of them into a book combined with the food we cooked and ate and the patterns of the creations I created, from the environment.

Hello po, Kuya Robert!

I really love to draw. I was just blog-hopping when I pass by your blog and saw your post. Your sketches definitely caught my attention and luckily, it was a contest!

I'd really love to get a copy of your book. I just want something that could inspire me to still continue drawing and sketching and perhaps someday, I could make a book like yours, too.

Thank you so much! You can contact me at lilabiene@gmail.com

Hi there! Nice to meet you. I also live in the Rocky Mountains, good ole Rifle, CO, lol! :) I'm originally from Aurora though. I also have a Christian family. But I'm probably a little younger as I've only been married to my husband 5 years. :) I just had to stop by since you are from Colorado as well. I don't find many art bloggers in Colorado. Since your fave color is purple I hope you sign up for my giveaway as it is all purple goodies! :) Blessings!
