“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou Hi ALL!

I’m Dino and welcome to the Lost Dino blog. I’m from the northern Philippines, I love the sea but prefer the chilly mountains. I express my creativity through images and art projects. This blog will mostly contain travel logs, art projects, tutorials and anything under the sun. Don’t forget to visit my online shop.

I love to travel with friends but I prefer going solo. Solo backpacking is exciting  and adventurous. Through my travels, I have learned a lot about people, places and different cultures.

Aside from travelling I also love taking photos and illustrating. When you check my Instagram, it’s obvious that I take too many pictures. I’m a creative and fun-loving person and I’m looking forward to meeting new friends.

  1. Wow, it’s great finding someone from P.I. who’s into anime, blogging, and graphic art! Keep up the good work!

      1. It’s great! The weather is a little iffy, especially if you have bad allergies or asthma, but the people are pretty awesome. If you come to Japan, try to visit Okinawa. It’s great!

  2. Hi! I know this is out of topic but I have just published an eBook on Amazon entitled “Budget Traveler’s Guide to Manila, Philippines.” The book is an experience-based guide to traveling on a budget in Metro Manila for backpackers, travelers, and culture seekers.

    If you are interested in the book, you can download it through this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KNN4ZGE

    If it happens that you know backpackers who are interested and are planning to travel to the Philippines, I will appreciate if you will refer the book.

    Big thanks!

  3. Hey there! I like your site, even if thin red text on a blue background (e.g., the archives section) can sometimes be a bit difficult to read. But thanks so much for liking my “From Up on Poppy Hill” movie review! I greatly appreciate it! God bless, and take care! =) Oh, and that children’s-book cover with the deer is hilarious. 😀

  4. Hi! Awesome site. I love your artwork, especially the fox illustration sweatshirt. Very neat. Thanks for stopping by my blog and reading my post on surprises that I had when I visited Japan. Are you living in Japan? What kinds of surprises did you have? Jessy (from The Green Turnip)

    1. Ohayou! Thanks for visiting and liking my art :). Currently I’m not living in Japan, and I have not decided yet if ill move their (maybe in the future).
