LIST: International Trips for P25,000 or Less

Travelling is really a grateful worthwhile experience. There is opportunity to learn new things, make mistakes and correct them, live in beautiful moments, lose as well as win, meet new people, say goodbye to friends, get lost then find oneself…

Within 2 years of continuous travelling…I’ve spent too much. I’ve spent too little. I booked the wrong accommodation. I’ve made a wrong turn. I got injured… But with these, I’ve also learned to experience the best things. I’ve learned to endure and be patient. I’ve cried so many tears of joy. I am more confident. I spend money more wisely. I know more people around the world. I’ve fallen in love. And many more. So much more…

Best of all, I get to tell my travel stories.

Stories that can inspire,

Words that can motivate different emotions,

Experiences that can be felt.

ALWAYS TRAVEL WITH PURPOSE

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you simply could do with a few percent to pressure the message home a little bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    Hi. Would be great to include both arrival and departure itineraries because such would entail costs. Also, clarify if the budget includes accommodation costs. Cheers!

      Hi 🙂 I don’t include arrival or departure itineraries as I said in my caveat that my flights are usually red eye so my first days are usually in the middle of the night, and my last days are airport days at night/early morning. Budget is ALL-IN 🙂

      Hi Jhanna 🙂 Thank you for your kind words 🙂
      For the dropdown list, it varies from theme to theme 🙂 Under “My Site”, there should be a “Menus” choice under ‘Personalize’ that you can edit/add to 🙂 I’ll check out your website! 🙂 Inspire! 🙂

      you can apply either straight from taiwan economic and cultural office philippines in makati or you can look for travel agencies that can accommodate your need of taiwan visa. food and night markets are the top 2 things to look for or do in taiwan. =)
