Solo Backpacking is becoming IN according to Ma’am Jessica Soho. This means that those who have been promoting this kind of travel is doing it right. Kudos to those who have paved the way for us. 🙂
Last week I was invited to do a shoot for a segment on “SOLO BACKPACKING” by GMA News TV’s State of the Nation with Jessica Soho. I am filled with gratitude as I remember that “Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho” was also my first TV appearance back in 2011. I was beginning to explore the country back then. Now that I have been to all the provinces of the Philippines and some Asian countries, I was again given an opportunity to share my thoughts about solo traveling.
Here’s the Youtube link of the short segment:
One of the things I said during the interview was, “Traveling is a journey inward. If you want to know yourself more. If you want to get out of your comfort zone. If you are tired of living a sedentary life” SOLO BACKPACKING is for you. If you want to try it, I wrote a blog on “How to Start Your Own Backpacking Trip.”
PS. I’m no solo backpacker now. I now travel with my beautiful girlfriend Callie since November 2013. In fact she was shown in the video at least thrice. Check 1:49-1:52 🙂
