Travel Rants

The other night, I went home late from work and I saw the TV show Trip na Trip. It’s a travel show that features places in the Philippines. It’s not the typical really serious documentary travel show but they’re really trying to make it funny and fun.

I was watching and then my mom would change the channel. I told her, “Don’t change the channel. I am not yet done torturing myself.” Yes, I really used the term torturing myself. Because honestly, while I was watching, I can’t help but get envious at them traveling and enjoying all over the country (it’s my ultimate goal to visit every place in the Philippines), and getting paid for it. Haayy….

Also, I realized that I should visit Batanes soon. I’ve always wanted to go to Batanes (way back college or highschool days), and it just sucks that I haven’t visited the place yet and almost everyone has it in their itinerary already. I don’t want to lose my interest in the place just because everyone is into it already. For those who had been reading my blog for the longest time, they know what I mean. I am selfish I know.

I am just ranting here because I have nothing to post, and I want to update my blog.

Dont' worry. You can easily go to Batanes one of these days. It is easier to visit the beautiful places in the Philippines than to visit the tourist spots in other countries. Probably your bigger problem would be the time away from your regular job. You can always lay away some extra money for your trip to Batanes. Make it a dead account so that you cannot withdraw it until the amount is already sufficient. Thanks for the post. God bless you and your loved ones always my young friend.

I've always loved traveling pretty much anywhere. So don't lose hope. Every time is an opportunity to grow!

Hey, I thought travelling Norway was on top of your list (and you'll even get a free lunch you know!)

Btw: If you hop over, you can even go with me to Russia :lol:

It's the same wherever you live. A lot of people I meet have been lots of cool places in the USA that I have never been to (like California or the Grand Canyon). But then again I was living there, I wasn't on vacation then. its a whole different thing. Make yourself a list and get out and see the stuff you are wanting to see. You can go off season since you don't have to travel as far, and you know the best times. Enjoy!
