By the time you are read this, I’m off travelling already.
I write this quick note before I left Los Banos, Laguna to embark an exciting shoe-string journey to the Visayas up until Batangas. You can check out my favorite post about this trip here:
Anyway, thess are the quotes that I want to share for those who love travelling/backpacking like me,
“The true traveler is he who goes on foot, and even then, he sits down a lot of the time.”
“The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people,
of adventure, of experience.
The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him.
He goes ‘sight-seeing.'”
-Daniel J. Boorstin
“When I had youth I had no money; now I have the money I have no time;
and when I get the time, if I ever do, I shall have no health to enjoy life.”
-Louisa May Alcott
“Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest;
make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.”
-Horace, Ancient Roman poet
The marooned phrases struck me. Well, you have to reflect on what Louisa said. More of my favorite quotes here.
I’m done with my homework- research on the things I would expect. I will print later the maps of the provinces that I will go to.
Honestly, I do not have a planned itinerary (thank God I’m more a risk-taker; zero OCness), I will go with the flow. Live and act like the locales! I wish I can speak Ilonggo too. “Di man ako kabalo mag-Ilonggo.”
I also want to share my latest twits:
You can follow me at http://twitter.com/journeyingjames for real-time updates on my travel discoveries
I also made a calling card for the people I will meet along the way.
I’m really excited for this super adventure. P250/day or less (US$6) for 2 weeks! God bless and guide me. Praying that I be in good state of health on the following days.
Day 1 kicks off tomorrow at Bacolod-Silay Airport, exactly 9:55am.
First challenge: find someone who will bring me to town for free or at least share taxi fare.
And before I forget, I want to thank my sister, Kit for some valuable help in this travel; Mitchikay for her camera; CouchSurfing and friends. Woohooo, I’m getting ready, getting ready…
