Why Lonely Pinoy Traveler?

I am not sad. I am very happy, especially when I travel. So why Lonely Pinoy Traveler? For two reasons:

Solo travel in Ayuthaya, Thailand
First, I will be posting about my own travels, here in the Philippines and even abroad. And most of these trips, I am alone.

Second, learning from my experience of traveling alone, I will be sharing trips and tips that will make traveling alone still a hell lot of fun. And this will work even with couples or groups.

Now, you might ask, why do I frequently travel alone. Sometimes, it is by choice but sometimes it is just the way it is given the circumstances. Lets me cite some examples.

1. I am fortunate that my work brings me to a lot of places. Working for an NGO, I am sent to the different parts of the country, often alone. After the work is done, I make sure that I spend a few days to explore the place - also often alone (or sometimes with my hosts.)

2. I also work as a consultant for one senator, a work that also entails lots of travels. In these travels all over the Philippines, the regular staff has to be constantly with the senator leaving me alone with the opportunity to explore the place.

3. Given my age, a lot of my friends are also young. Often, we plan to travel together but at the last minute, they would cancel. Most probably, I would decide to continue with the plan - alone.

4. Sometimes, I travel alone by choice. That is for a lot of reasons, but usually, I do it if I want some time to think about something. In my next post, I will be detailing some benefits of traveling alone.

But just to make it clear, I do enjoy some company when I travel. But when faced with a situation where I am alone, I know how to make the most out of it, and have one hell of trip to remember.

So, read on and please come back for more and discover heaven that is the Philippines.
