Like most teens, Kisses Delavin ( her real name, Kirsten Danielle Tan Delavin) feels a different high when she makes new friends and sees new places whenever she packs her bags and travels.
She has been to many places for sure but, on top of all the destinations she’s been, here are three of her favourite and memorable places she had visited.
Palawan is most special to the 19-year-old Kapamilya artist because it always brings back fond child memories with her parents. Needless to say, Palawan is breathtaking. But that’s not the main reason why it stands out as Kisses’ favorite travel destination in the Philippines.
“We seldom take vacations because Mama and Papa are always busy,” the ‘Miracle Daughter of Masbate’ she explains. That’s why Kisses treasures those moments when her seven-year-old self basked in the joy of having her parents all to herself in their Palawan getaway.
Whether she’s traveling around the Philippines or abroad, the most important thing for Kisses is her parents’ presence. They are her favorite travel companions. With them around, every trip is complete.
“Life is short, so I feel I should try to travel the world with my parents.”
What a sweet child!
A memorable trip for her also means going back to her roots in Masbate, where her prominent family has hotel and trading businesses. Now that she’s so busy, her 2018 schedule is spoken for, Kisses admits missing the sights and sounds of her hometown.
It is here where she spent many carefree summers, not knowing that someday, her days and nights will be so packed, she’ll yearn for those laidback, unhurried moments that made her childhood extra special.
Not that Kisses is complaining. How could she when Kisses has 1.6 million followers on Instagram and a host of fan clubs who update the world about their idol’s every move.
She has a slew of endorsements, and her mere presence is enough to make a hall echo and re-echo with shrieks and chants of “I love you, Kisses!”
3. Czech Republic
Popularity has also taken Kisses to her favorite travel destination abroad – the Czech Republic.
Kisses can’t run out of superlatives for the place, which she describes as “so beautiful.” It gave made her feel so good just being there.
”It was my first out-of-the-country shoot for Making Mega,” she recalls.
