Seve already looks like a seasoned traveler based on the posts his mom, Toni Gonzaga and dad Paul Soriano, who celebrates his birthday today, October 17, have been posting on Instagram. Based on his parents' social media posts, this was Seve's first trip out of the country. Here's a peek of his adventure: 



    Seve's "Tinang" (a play on tita and ninang) Alex, Toni's sister, and his paternal grandparents were also with them during the trip. Some of the areas they visited were The Vatican and the Colosseum in Rome and Florence in Italy, the Eiffel Tower and Musée du Louvre in Paris. 


    In Alex's birthday greeting to brother-in-law Paul, she asked him and Toni to give her more pamangkins to annoy.
