As someone who lives in an urban jungle like Manila, the traffic and chaos in the city can be a bothersome. I may be immune to my surroundings in Manila but there are times that I crave for adventure. So once I crave for an adventure, I start to search for places that I could go to and fits my budget. If it will be a quick getaway, I choose places within the Philippines because there are 7107+ islands in the country. If it will be long haul flights, I get to choose the location wisely because you would want to make sure that the time and money spent will be worth it.

This year, I was able to travel to different parts of the Philippines and the world. In the first 6 months of the year, I was given the opportunity to go to Cebu for Sinulog Festival and Boracay for Labor Day. The next 6 months, I was able to go to Kalinga and international trips mainly Cambodia and Europe (London, Scotland, Iceland and Norway). You see, travelling gives me this sense of fulfillment. When I go to different places in the world, this makes me understand the country’s history and culture. I feel so alive that I would rather embrace Do-It-Yourself trips rather than joining group tours.

In being able to travel, I get to share my experiences through the platform, Instagram. I love taking pictures and Instagram is a good avenue for me to share my photography skills and inspire other people that they can travel no matter where they are. All you need is guts and determination.
