​My Greatest Travel Achievement as Filipino Solo Backpacker

Travelling Alone mostly on DIY as Philippine passport holder only (2010-2022)


"Live a life to inspire, live a life with sense of accomplishment, live a life you will remember" - Mang Andoy

Despite the weakness of Philippine passport (having only less than 70 countries that provide free visa / visa on arrival privilege) and challenging visa application, immigration, profiling and interrogation all throughout the journey (especially in NAIA Terminals), I managed to accomplish the following successfully and beyond what I anticipated. #livealifeyouwillremember

01. 2013 - First Europe get-away (23 Days Solo Autumn Experience in Central Europe, 9 countries visited) then to Promised Land of Israel (including Bethlehem of Palestine) coming from the Arab country in Middle East.
