7 years ago, I went on a Journey to Latin America. I was actually going through a hard time (well, who wasn’t) as the 23-year old in me was so confused about life. I was in the middle of a study abroad program in Italy when something hit me – where am I headed?
At the time, it was a question for most people my age. Nobody knew what they were doing in their life but not everyone is doing something to change that. I did not want to be one of those always hanging with ‘what if’ thoughts so I did something about it. For three and a half years, I traveled to all countries in South America without going back home. Along the way, I found my homes in Peru, Brasil, Colombia, Bolivia – it was so easy for me to adjust to the Latin lifestyle because I love it. I really really love it.
After that, I traveled to the Middle East and went back to my home country, the Philippines. I found myself not liking my current circumstance so, after a year, I decided to leave again. The Philippines, although beautiful by all means, is not somewhere I see myself living in.
