Most Memorable Travel Experience

- my trips all over the Philippines
- all TravBuddy meet-ups I've been to
- full moon party in Koh Phangan
- the Songkran Festival in Chiang Mai
- the Horny Weirdos tubing get-together in Vang Vieng

Born and raised in the Philippines, and only started going out of the country in 2008 (what a loser). Still doesn't know what to do with his life (again, loser), but would DEFINITELY like to see the world and experience its diversity.

Loves meeting new people and making new friends. Loves hearing about their stories, learning about their culture, and most especially, asking them about the weather in their country. Seriously.

I'd like to share a very simple yet honest quote from a Baha'i prophet: "The world is but one country, and mankind its citizen."

I think this means tourism should be very cheap, if not free. So no visas, no entrance fees, and no departure taxes! This world is for everyone to share and enjoy! Yeah, I'm cheap like that.

I really, really, really love the Philippines. And how could I not? It's sooo amazing, yet it sucks at the same time! Can't get any better than that!
