“I can’t travel because I’m poor”
“How can I travel, I don’t even have money!”
I’ve been reading a lot of comments from Filipinos about my articles on travels. Most of them are assuming that my parents are rich, which is how I can afford this around-the-world-backpacking lifestyle for two years now from South East Asia to South America. No, my parents never gave me money (nor my boyfriend) and we don’t even have or use a credit card (we are debt-free). We’re actually earning money while traveling!
