Sometimes, things just fall into place. The plan was to hold off all travel plans to save money for a bigger trip, but the apprehensions and frustration I felt while waiting for word regarding my Australian tourist visa application resulted in an impulsive purchase of round trip tickets to Roxas City. If I didn’t get the visa, I might as well have a week-long holiday, I thought. Though my travel mate’s plans were only until Thursday, May 30, I opted to go the full week, since I’ll be taking a leave from work. I was thinking about my options, since I have four days until my flight home, when I received an invite for a 3-days, 2-nights stay at The DistrictBoracay. Now isn’t that just lucky?
Back in 2006, I couldn’t think of anyone who would want to travel with me for two weeks in Thailand. That’s why I decided to go alone. I love the freedom of doing whatever I want when I travel, seeing only the places I’m really interested in, eating where ever and whatever I want.
It’s very different now. Travel blogging has led the way for me to meet like-minded people, who are game to go when I think of a trip to make. That also meant I get to tag along with their trips. That’s how this trip came to be.

When you travel with a backpack, you become more conscious of what you put in your bag. It’s not just the space that matters – weight plays a big role, because you have to haul that bag on your back! I’ve gotten quite adept in packing light, though I’m still prone to overpacking (and over shopping!). My rule is, if it’s bulky, best to leave it at home. If you really must have it with you, wear it.
