5 Reasons Why I Prefer Palawan Pawnshop over Other Money Transfer Services

I’ve already been to lots of money transfer services and most of them didn’t meet my expectations. Some have very rude clerks and others employed security guards who are not trained how to treat a customer properly.

Travel Nightmare: The Fear of Not Attaining One’s Bucket List

Nowadays almost everyone has their own bucket list, a phrase derived from the expression “kick the bucket,” which is a term for death.

How To Be A Responsible Nomad

Mount Pinatubo Crater

Thanks to Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms that litter our newsfeeds with so many travel photos, more and more people are encouraged to save up and see the world. According to the World Tourism Organization, the number of international tourist arrivals in 2012 surpassed, for the first time, 1 billion, and is forecasted to reach 1.8 billion in 2030. With the dramatic rise in the number of travelers, concerns over the practice of eco-friendly travel have increased as well.

What Moves You: The Hidden Story Behind Traveling Alone

The Hidden Story Behind Traveling Alone

A lot of people do not know how to be alone. Some are scared, some feel lost, some feel lonely, and some just feel awkward. Imagine if we elevate that to traveling solo — alone in an unfamiliar territory, surrounded by people you don’t know, trying things for the first time — all by yourself. Sure, it can be daunting but more and more people think traveling on your own can be as exciting.

I’ve never eaten so much scallops in my life. In Gigantes, scallops are of bloody abundance. Each of our meal (except breakfast) always comes with it and is cooked in various ways. Would never forget the small mountains of scallop shells scattered all over the island. Accommodation is too basic even for a budget traveller like me but they make it up by serving us very generous servings of seafoods every meal. #gigantesisland #seafood #scallops #seashells #giganteshideaway #foodporn

It’s been 18 days now that I left the island of Pitogo and have been wandering on the road. This is actually the very first time that I travel this long. I’ve been planning for years to travel continuously but been held back by a lot of responsibilities. Now, I can tell that this is only the beginning of my wandering journey. This has been what I’ve been picturing myself for years…to wander…continuously… #wanderer #imnotatraveler #imawanderer
