Since you already know what I was doing before I started traveling the world, let’s now discuss how I am able to live a life like this — travelling non-stop. My article for Rappler Philippines was a big hit. However, I don’t think I included my way of travelling in the write up. People were thinking in different directions, like travel is equivalent to luxury or money.
Where I am from, people think this way. “She must be from a rich family” was one of the comments. I received e-mails from people borrowing money from me with all those victim stories that goes with it. I was like, what?! I don’t even know where to sleep tonight! They thought I am splurging like an heiress, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton style to be able to travel non-stop.
Sorry, what you think is wrong. I do my best actually. I sleep wherever, eat whatever is on the table, live with my means, etc. It’s not that I don’t have money to buy food. Of course, I have that! I just really started living with what I can afford and stopped longing for material things.
So here it goes. I am going to enumerate everything I do, all at the same time (more or less) just to keep myself from going home. I am telling you that it’s not easy but I am having the time of my life and I’m keeping up. Somehow, you’ll just get used to this life.
P.S. I didn’t save anything before starting this travel. I just met a lot of people who are doing the same thing and I tried to learn it. It all worked out.
