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.

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
