Finding Myself While doing Solo Travels in the Philippines

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

My solo travel in The Philippines started 2 years ago. It started with me quitting a daytime job that paid well but was too stressful for me to even stay for more than 1 year. During that time, I felt unaccomplished and a complete failure. I felt that my life had no purpose. I was lost. I wanted to find another job but the fear to try again and fall at the same pit of frustration and discontentment with my previous job. I remember browsing the web searching for jobs up until a generic notification from a local airline in the Philippines popped up in my email with the subject: Seat Sale!


I clicked the site and just randomly chose a destination hoping to find cheap flights. I was about to be jobless thus I needed to find the cheapest flight I can find. First destination, nah too expensive. Second attempt, still too pricey. Third attempt, bingo! It was a round trip fare worth 23 USD. Destination Boracay Islands, Philippines.
