Why Travel???

Why Travel?

Ever since I was born, there is only one place I kept going to, Bohol. Bohol is my mom’s birthplace and for that we need to visit my grandmother every year to spend our time with her. It’s the only travel experience I had in my childhood and I have never experienced travelling to another place in the Philippines just for the sake of travelling. And now I realized that I missed some pieces of my life because my parents didn’t introduce me to that word: Travel.

Travel, as a noun according to a dictionary, means the act of going from one place to another. And Travel, as a verb according to a dictionary, means undertake a journey or trip or it may mean make a trip for pleasure.
I have experienced “Travel” as a noun but never as a verb. Because anybody could travel as a noun, when you go out of your house and went to the market, to school, to the church, you travel. But not everybody could travel as a verb that is to go to different places, to go to tourist spots and vacation places, to beaches and to the mountains.

You see, these things make the difference. When you can’t afford to travel, then don’t. However, when the time comes that you can, when you have the extra income or it is under your budget, spend some time and money into travelling because it is not only for luxury but for you to experience what it is to live and enjoy life with nature, with the people you love, with meeting new acquaintances, with having to experience different lifestyle in different places. Philippine travels are such nice ideas and a good way of relaxation and in a way can help in our country’s tourism. We can help our country aside from enjoying our country’s vast natural resources and good vacation places. I’ve been into different countries before but I have never seen what my country, The Philippines, could offer. And so, I have tried to explore my country and promised myself that I will not waste my time and money to other things, instead spend it in visiting my country’s beautiful spots.Just take a peek into my pictures and you would know why.

You don’t need to go to the Bahamas to experience the white sand, or go to Japan to see Mount Fuji, or travel to Rome to show your devotion. Explore the beauty of nature here in our country, The Philippines. You don’t have to go too far just to experience life at its best.

  1. Nice idea Jo,

    common people always equate travelling = expenses and its true on the other hand. But your idea gives me more guts to travel within the Philippines’ great spot, otherwise I might be foreigner in my own land.
