FlipNomad - My way of traveling kept on changing, from going to the usual resorts when I was still in school, to going to nearby provinces when I started working. Then I started backpacking which changed my life forever. It opened my eyes to a lot of other cultures. It gave me a chance to meet interesting people that have interesting views in life. It even led me to the wonderful world of blogging.
1. What country are you in at the moment and what have you been doing?
I’m currently in Phnom Penh, Cambodia currently exploring this city while maintaining my blogs and building my niche sites.
2. What is your advice for people planning their first big travel?
If you’ll be working on a tight budget, do some research on how you would be able to save some money on the road while still enjoying your trip. Travelling on a budget does not always means sticking on $1 meals and stuff like that. It’s always about finding the best value for your money.
3. Which, out of all the countries you’ve visited was the most impressive?
I think all countries are impressive in their own right. For architectures, I love France. For shopping, USA, the outlet stores definitely offer great bargains. For food, it’s China and Thailand. For best value on your money, it’s Cambodia. For mind blowing overall travel experience, India. And for the beaches, my home country, the Philippines.
4. What is your life destination and main goals or dreams?
The only thing I want in this world is to enjoy my day. I want to have a life that is not focus on careers. I want to have a life that is enjoyable and full of adventures (big or small).
5. What is your life credo?
Life is short. Cliché, but true. We only have one shot in this thing called life. I don’t want to waste it by not doing the things that I know I love.
6. What’s the weirdest food you’ve tried and would you have it again?
It would probably deep fried insects. It actually tasted good. So yeah, I would try it again.
7. What’s in your backpack?
I’m carrying 1 jacket, some shirts and pants, a few pairs of shorts, my shoes, laptop and my camera and of course some toiletries.
8. What’s Next?
Build more websites and travel more. After a year of travelling, I have proven to myself that it’s possible to earn and travel at the same time. I’ve decided to maintain this lifestyle for a couple more years.
