I believe the most used travel quotation is Lao Tzu’s “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
That single step I did 55 days ago- on the morning of February 1, 2012, I left the comforts of my home in Los Banos, Laguna and started my 1oo days of journey around the Philippines.
Because I want to save on expenses, I walk miles and miles of road because I believe that “You see places in a different perspective when you slow down and walk.”
They say that walking is a good form of exercise. I’m a runner and walking is considered a cross-training coz you develop other sets of muscles not used while running. Its one of the glorious feat a baby can do. Every parent would burst into joy when they see their child begin to walk.
Its also a metaphor for life, travel and even exploration. Its so basic in for the love of outdoors- its called hike when done in the mountains, trek when done on rough roads.
In ISANG DAAN Journey, I have walk a lot of roads, beachlines, caves, mountains and almost every place that can be walked.
Touring a place by walking is like saying to yourself to take it slow, to observe, to feel the ground and listen to the sound of the surroundings.
So today, I prepared a short walking video of the places where I visited during Days 8-20 of my 100 Days of Backpacking the Philippines. Hope you like it!
But wait, to make it more interesting, I added 11 of my fave travel quotations that will surely inspire the wanderlust in you.
Sit back, listen and join me as I walk Northern Luzon.
Now, may I know your fave quotation during the 1:57mins of the vid?
You might also add your fave travel quotation…

#ISANGDAAN is a personal journey and challenge to backpack around the Philippines the cheapest way possible for 100 days. “Isang Daan” is a Filipino term that can mean either “one way” or “one hundred.”
