    did my own solo backpacking 3 years ago, when i was 25, fresh out of law school, and it still remains as the biggest travel adventure i've ever done in my whole life.

    went frankfurt-bodensee-vienna-venice-milan-barcelona-paris-brussels-amsterdam-berlin-frankfurt. then uwi sa pilipinas. sobrang saya! just me and my backpack, and a lot of friends met along the way. took me one month to do the tour.

    baka di ko na kaya gawin ang ganun ka-extensive na backpacking tour ngayon.

    pero if you have the time, it's worth it!

    masaya to, i've done this twice, traveling on my own.

    since I have started working here in Singapore, I've started backpacking, and I was able to travel from here to Hong Kong overland, and from there I took a ferry to Macau for a flight back to Singapore.

    it will widen your horizons and you'll meet a lot of people along the way. it will also remind you of humility seeing that there are other people who are less fortunate as yours.

    I often call this as "cultural immersion".

    what's a backpacker?
    psencya po - jologs ini

    just went solo trip to baguio , then sagada, eh ang mahal ng solo-cave tours duon. so i went with an american tourist who was also planning to cave, then the next day , another solo swiss tourist came in and join us, then on the 3rd day we met an austrian solo traveler up in mt.ampacao who tagged along with us heading off to the mini lake for a late afternoon weed

    they have around a month of ample vacation time to explore our country, while only have atmost a week to travel and my last destination would be in my cube in Makati
    does that make me a backpacker too?

    cant afford a european tour or asian-country hopping too like you guys plan to.

    now i'm preparing a solo adventure on bohol tomorrow... relax mode lang.. p ero kung may mga group tour.. sali na rin! ... sana makahanap ako group tours duon at maki-join... hehe, sana pinoys naman... ni-nosebleed ako the whole sagada trip ko! .haha!

    does this make me now a backpacker?
    naks!...

    backpaker: definition

    sarili ko lang na definition...

    usually carrying a backpack, pero di naman kelangan na backpack talaga, and travelling to many places on a very tight budget. due to the tight budget, a backpacker usually sleeps in a hostel, or even at airports or train stations. it is not unusual for a backpacker to hook up with other backpackers to share a room or travel together to a certain destination or for a certain leg of a trip if hooking up together would allow both to save, or for mutual help.

    backpacking is a rough vacation. sometimes, you even wear the same clothes for days because you don't carry a lot of clothes.

    in my case, ito ang hindi ko kaya (except kung winter kasi di naman pinapawisan). i usually bring cheap clothes (yong mga undershirts na tig-3 for 100 sa atin) and kung marumi na, tinatapon ko na lang then buy new shirts (souvenir na rin) at the destination coz wala nang space sa bag kung dadalhin ko pa (and tamad akong maglaba).

    the first wave of european tourists in boracay were adventurous backpackers who hopped from island to island in the philippines back in the 80s. kaya siguro ako nahawa kasi ganun ang mga nakikita kong turista when i was a kid.

    *limpbwizit was born and raised in boracay!
