My Life in the Middle East before Quitting my Job to Travel the World When I was 24 Years Old

In 2009, I had just finished my Bachelors Degree in Economics from UPLB (University of the Philippines - Los Banos) and I was ready to make my first steps out into the real world.

My Life in the Middle East before Traveling the World

My father was living in Kuwait at the time, so he helped me to get a great internship at the Philippines Embassy (Labor Department) – not completely independent, or even adventurous looking back through all of my experiences since then, but at the time this was a huge leap for me, one that would eventually lead me to corners of the world I never dreamed I would see in my lifetime. That was a month after my college graduation and it was my first time to travel internationally!
