2 months later…

I know being busy is not an excuse but I am, busy being on the road and planning random trips, working on the side, and budgeting on the other side. I guess I could say that you could expect some posts to come 🙂

For a short recap, February was pretty exciting, no travels for this month, but we attended the Paramore concert in Manila. Then booked for a March weekend trip, which I will be posting anytime soon 🙂

Anyway, it’s scorching hot out here, and so the summer begins. Enjoy! 😀


Countdown: 93 Days

The road to my first self-funded out-of-country trip.

I am addicted to travel blogs. Simply put, I wanted to travel too. But the thing is I put restrictions to myself. I keep on limiting myself to the things I thought i cannot afford.
But the best lesson I learned from reading these blogs is to: JUST GO.

And now, I am two months in-the-waiting for that ultimate travel experience this 2012.
In the beginning I told myself, I am doing this as a birthday treat to myself.
I want to do this because I think I deserve it.

But now I know that the real reason behind wanting to travel, more than the “soul-searching” stuff, is to fuel my passion in life. I haven’t found my passion yet, but for the meantime, my passion is living. Maybe getting the best life has to offer, but more so, is experiencing life in different perspectives.

I love to live, through challenges, through depression, through life’s worst scenarios.
I love experiencing. Pain, sorrow, laughter, fear, envy, elation, shame, pride.
It lets me know I am alive, and I am living.

I am a person that does not take risks. I ignore them and avoid them at all costs. I like to stay in my safe place. But I got bored, and not peaceful at all. I decided to try and challenge life.
And it gives back.

From the first summit I have step foot on, I let myself revel into the unreality of real world.
This is the real world. I mean, after college I assumed that the real world people are talking about are corporate attire, tall buildings, conference rooms, meetings, deadlines, stress.

But that is just a part of this reality.
There is no requirement really to enjoy a piece of this life.
It might be different for each of us, but what matters, i think, is how you deal with it.

And maybe, because I am on the first step of changing my perspective, it might reveal to me the secret of living.

Or not. But hey, at least I am trying. 🙂
