The Essence of Travelling

As a 23 year-old Filipina, I am not that well-travelled. I have only visited four countries so far and I have not seen much and have not observed much yeat of what is out there. However, i have to be proud of myself and I am happy of the little achievement that I have. With the few travels that I have, I have learned a lot from them. I was able to compare the culture and the way of life of people in each place and have gained some understanding that each one of us in this world is different.

No matter how varied people are, I have observed that all have the same aspirations. Among these are to have better life, more finances to support life and leisure, a good heart in nature and aspirations to be happy. When I was in Mlaysia, I have seen how busy people in Kuala Lumpur were. They were earning and working much. When I tried to see the more remote cities and province like Port Dickson and Melaka, the way of life is different. The same is tru in the Philippines and in Italy.
If I am to be asked if travelling has changed my life, the answer is yes. I hope this year I can go to another country or two to have my observation and to give me more understanding of the underlying culture that makes up the place. Cukture is very important to make a country progressive or not. Before, I travel like a blind, never that observant and it was something I considered a lost. But now that I discovered a place to put all them, which is here and in another site where I make reviews, I find it more interesting to go around, pay more attention and be keen to details. I am happy to share what I have learned. To explore and to learn.
