visited-bantayan-island-again

Reminiscing my first visitI remember the first time I visited Bantayan Island.I was 16, and about to enter college. I took the university’s entrance exam and the school’s administration office said that the result will be revealed after a week. We needed to wait so that I could enroll to the university. During that time, we stayed in my Aunt’s house, she is Mama’s first cousin. While waiting for the result, they decided to go to Bantayan Island, where my grandfather was born.I actually had no idea about the island back then. I…

I always believed that in order to grow, we have to experience things on our own. Having our own space means we can decide, execute and reflect about our own actions. And by that, it can lead to a better version of ourselves.I already shared with you some girls all over the world who travel solo for while being in a relationship. I learned a lot from them, but I also wondered if there are women who travel solo while married. And I am glad to find some of those strong independent women.Here are some of their experiences…

I almost didn’t go to this trip, because of shallow reasons involving money. In case you didn’t know, I do not have a job. Not that you care about this, but as an obvious reason, it is an important way to generate money and to make my travel dreams come true (A little bit exaggerated but I know that you get it). Anyway, I’m grateful that I have the energy and a boyfriend who supports me in everything I do, and I went anyway.Accompanied by fellow freedivers. We had one goal. To see and swim with…

Malaysia was the last leg of my journey to visit during my Southeast Asia quick escape. It was also the most difficult one for me.Solo travel is a challenge, especially for me who tried it for the first time. But throughout my travel, some of my destinations went pretty easy.Singapore was easy because I have Hernan, my boyfriend, during that time. He has always been my navigator slash translator slash everything when we travel. It’s not like I’m useless, I’m just lazy.Vietnam was wonderful because I was surrounded with a lot of people that…

best-places-to-travel-solo-philippines

Traveling is one of the most liberating things to do. No matter what kind of traveler we are, we can experience different situations, and from that, we can tell different stories to other people.I experienced different versions of being a traveler. It all started one summer at a time in my homeland, Mindanao, as a family travel. Then college came, group of friends started to explore the nearby towns in Cebu. After college, I experienced traveling with strangers in a boat for four days and three nights on an island hoping in Leyte. And recently, I experienced traveling alone…

we-need-community

“No man is an island”A common phrase we are all familiar. But do we know what it really means?According to science, humans need other humans in order to survive. Most importantly, to remain sane. We can go crazy without talking or seeing another human being. This is very true. Humans need community, for them to feel love, to connect and to feel they belong. This is why we all have that longing that we need to fit in. This is part of our human nature. So don’t be sad about that fact if you feel that way…

I think for them it is more fun to…
