3 Reasons to Travel While You’re Young

by Jeff Goins The other night, I had a conversation with a young lady who had a number of decisions ahead of her, which included whether she should go to grad school or travel the world. I told her to travel. Hands down. No excuses. Just go. The results are worth the costs. And she sighed.

Because it makes it sound like we have the best of intentions when really we are just too scared to do what we should. It allows us to be cowards, while sounding noble. M

Hacks for EUROPE Travel : Backpacker Tips

As for Filipina like me, when you say EUROPE, people would think EUROPE is always gonna be expensive especially for traveling. It's funny because some people would ask a lot of questions or even comment about what I do in life how do I afford to travel. Questions are like? Anong work mo, ganda siguro work mo? (What do you do for a living, maybe you a decent high paying job?) Bakit lagi kang nagttravel? Kasama ba yan sa work? (Why do you travel often, is it part of your job?) Laki siguro sahod mo no? (Maybe you earning so much) Siguro sponsored ka ng jowa mo? (Maybe your boyfriend is sponsoring you!) We can't control what people think about us. People will always judge no matter what we do. H

14 Things to do in Budapest, Hungary in 3 Days
